    147% CPU Usage while playing

    Hi all,

    I've recently puchased MC Ultimate 2023.12.0 running on iMac Retina 5K 27" 3.6 Ghz 8-core Intel i9 March 2019, AMD Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB, Memory 64 GB, OS Sonoma 14.2.1

     

    Testing the system both ways --  from media on a 12GB SanDisk drive and Samsung T7 Shield.

     

    Both times playing down a 28min seq of the last show I worked on, with no other applications running or bins open.  My CPU usage soars to 147% and CPU temp increases.  I did turn off PhraseFind Indexing as it almost fried my CPU over 76C/1269F.

     

    I tried to clear bin memory under the About Avid Media Composer Configuration and memory still spikes.

    Is there a setting I need to set to keep this from overheating my CPU?

    Thanks in advance,

    ~ JG33

    Hi JG33,

    Is the media that you are playing back already transcoded or linked? as linked media are usually processor intensive.

     

    Thanks,

    Ajay

    On MacOS, a fully utilized core is counted as 100% in the Activity Monitor. An 8 core CPU fully loaded is equal to 800%. 147% seems normal.
