Actually I'm a multi-threaded developer so many of the more modern tools have made it much easier. My CPU definitely shouldn't be idle, that is for sure. I would see my GPU idle before my CPU. My CPU used to be pegged when using VideoStudio rendering (or is it my imagination).
Is it pretty much CPU OR GPU (GPU is video card) rendering? Can I not have both?
Thank you everyone for your help.
Update! I rendered one video using AVI (project settings) and just did one using WMV (both 1280x720) and the WMV has the CPU pegged!? The avi does not! On the WMV, I wonder if the GPU is being taxed....I will check using the nvideo perf tool.
