    Application Manager extreme CPU usage

    Hi there,

    months ago I asked about optimization in settings to speed up MC in slower machines (see my specs below). After a while I realized that apart from difficult tasks in MC the application manager is dragging down my computer (and my batterylife).

    I dont really care because I can close it to edit, but it might be interesting to overlook that software so it doesnt occupy that much CPU power.

    Hey Leo

    My you are one brave soul....  OS 10.12.3 is not approved with MC ....  Aside, we are aware of the AppMan and its drag on the system when open.  We recommend that you quit out of the appman while editing and as such you will notice a much better performance from the system.   

    I believe we have a new Appman coming that is a tad more streamlined but I am not sure when that will be.

    Hi Leo,

      Please try the latest version of App Manager 17.2. You should see improvements to that area. 

    Please let me know what you think. 

     

    Thanks

    I think its less now. 

    Still having also installed MC 8.8 it seems to have this behaviour. 

    But since this is a common problem with the early 2011 MBP with the AMD 1GB graphics I guess I will always have this problem with newer GPU intensive applications. 

    Although I must say fcpx and premiere dont behave like this at the moment.

     

    thanks for the reply
