    Ta. Does the job

    Also, any recommendations for a disc space analysis now my previously used JDiskReport won't run because they haven't updated their Java security certificate?

    Fucking OneDrive.

    My company moved to MS365 a while back. One drive is central to that, but it keeps adding My Documents as a synced folder no matter how many times I remove it. Anyone know a way to reliably stop it from happening without uninstalling onedrive (I like the idea of synced folders, just only the ones I tell it to)

    Fresh plaster, it's still drying

    Had my bedroom replastered and took of the manky window trims beforehand. Stone frame behind looks and feels like a massive heatsink so thinking I might replace with angle trims with 50mm of insulation behind. Does this sound like a sensible approach of a massive waste of time considering the wall is uninsulated?

    Wow, yes! It was actually that Tina Turner song that reminded my of my question.

    Such a crap sound but I guess it sounded pretty amazing once.

    It was an MP4 with a H.264 codec. I did wonder if maybe it was just a limitation of the codec.

    @Brun yeah it did appear to be multithreading, but not with all cores at 100% like when I render with Vray. Good point about the effects though, they might not all be capable of multithreading.

    Thanks. I still can't figure out how you get a neat finish with the carpet butting up to it, but I guess this is why I'll not be fitting it (though I should probably try and learn)

    Why is there such a prevalence of synth harmonica solos in 80s pop?

    To be honest I've lost track of where the source footage is a bit. GPU carked it with 2 weeks until delivery and I've been limping by on my old machine and just rushing everything to get it out the door without having time to check if everything is working as effeciently as possible. Just doing a collect and will test with everything definitely coming from the local disc to see if it make a difference.

    CPU is Ryzen 9 5950X GPU RTX 3090

    What made me think the .AEP would make a difference is network traffic seemed to be maxed out (though that's not uncommon, our network is pitiful here)

    Edit: collected all sources to C: and it's miles faster, especially in buffering. So our network is slow... that's not news to me.

    Edit edit: encoding still slower than I would like. probably just a result of the codec or effects on the layers.... GPU acceleration is enabled.
