CPU spiking to 99%
Procaster 20.2 or 20.3 (whichever is the latest I forget, downloaded 2 weeks ago to be sure)
i7 3820k 3.6ghz with Turbo enabled. (Quad)
16gig of ram
I'm attempting to stream while painting in photoshop.
Two years ago on a much older PC, it was a Quad core with 2.6ghz, 3gigs of ram and a normal mechanical drive, I could stream 1680x1050 resolution while painting in photoshop with absolutely no lag whatsoever.
These days, on my new PC, everytime I lay down a brushstroke or pick a color I get this lag spike for half a second. Now imagine putting down a brushstroke every split second and picking a color every 3-20seconds. The lag is crazy, looking at my CPU usage just by having procaster streaming it uses up 40%.
Looking at my cpu usage when using photoshop without procaster running, it barely budges above 10% unless I'm using some crazy brush where it might jump to 30%
So how come when combining the two it spikes to 99% when doing arbitrary tasks like putting down a brush stroke or picking a color? Well, I don't expect an answer to this question but rather a work around.
Is there any way to download older versions of Procaster that weren't this CPU intensive?
Like before version 20.x.x
I guess it's worth mentioning that changing the resolution at which I stream has no effect at all on CPU usage.
Tried both the HD presets and the low preset and I've tinkered with just about every possible custom preset I can think of.
