the problem might be coming from incorrect Colimo version. Thea is compatible with Colimo v1.2 which is about to be published.

Best wishes
Where do I find this version for download? Fantastic new revision of Thea!

Greetings Patrick
I did get 99-100% load with my test.

There seems to be an issue here, which also depends on machine type and processor cores
(more evident now that the engine core is faster). It's not a bug but a "fix" is underway right
now and expected to be available in next revision (coming in 2-3 days).

Greetings Patrick
The resolution is like the images you have 640x480. 8 threads.

I get the same as Dallas mid 80% to about 96% on two cores, could AMD processors be a factor?

I get a fluctuation of 70's to 90's with i7 processor 8 threads.

I just downloaded colimo but it sais "please contact us to get a valid licence". How do I do this?

Thanks,

Steve

Maybe stating the obvious, but you need to purchase one... ;)

I don't think so, I get the same on dual Xeons in a MacPro from 2008 (pre-I7).

Did another test with versions v1.0.10.505/v1.1.01.568 with another scene:

version v1.0.10.505 rendertime with tr1 427 seconds means 100%
version v1.1.01.568 rendertime with tr1 365 seconds means 85%
or
version v1.0.10.505 rendertime with tr1 427 seconds means 117%
version v1.1.01.568 rendertime with tr1 365 seconds means 100%

version v1.0.10.505 rendertime with BSD 1508 seconds means 100%
version v1.1.01.568 rendertime with BSD 1196 seconds means 79%
or
version v1.0.10.505 rendertime with BSD 1508 seconds means 126%
version v1.1.01.568 rendertime with BSD 1196 seconds means 100%

I was just wondering. I see that different scenes makes different results. :wave:
