I'm new to Terragen (TG4) and i noticed a strange behavior with Clouds Layers. Maybe it's just a setting problem (i'm discovering TG), but i would like to share it... I didn't found similar problem in the forum, so here it is :
I'm on a Mac Pro 2012, 12 core 3.33 Ghz. When i render a scene in the render view (not a particular scene : the startup scene works fine for exemple), all 12 cores are used ("Override automatic number of cores detection" is unchecked into préferences). But if i add one of following Cloud Layer :
- High Level Cirrocumulus,
- Any of Mid Level Clouds,
- Any of Low Level Clouds,
only 6 cores are used when rendering (divided by 2)... If i add "High Level Cirrus (2D)" or any of Global layer, the 12 cores are used.
I think i missed some optimisation setting, but i don't know where...
I tried to play with "Acceleration cache" in the Optimisation tab of the Cloud Layers, with the number of threads in the Render node Advanced tab, but they had no effect on the number of cores.
Here is a screenshot with the startup scene and a mid level Cloud layer added.
This is not a blocking issue, but if my 12 cores could be back...
