Photoshop not using all CPU, RAM nor Graphic Card during rendering - low performance

Hi there,

 

maybe I can find some help here.

When I google this problem I cannot find any suitable solution.

 

I am rendering 1 min. long videos with the newest Photoshop and each video takes 3-6 minutes to render.

CPU utilization of Adobe Photoshop is at around 10% (in total) and not more than 30% highest utilization for the highest logical processor. The affinity is set to all processors.

RAM is around 10GB used and the graphics card is below 5% usage.

 

How can I make that Photoshop utilizes all the ressources available? I wouldn't mind 100% CPU utilization 🙂

 

I already tried to downgrade Photoshop to the oldest available version now available: 21.1.9

I already tried different settings within the performance tab: the memory usage, the cache levels, cache tile size. The file is already set up in pixels and no other unit.

 

 

I am using the following system:

CPU: i9-10900X

RAM: 128GB 3000MHz

3D: GeForce RTX 2080 TI

SSD: TS2TMTE220S

 

Thanks a lot for any suggestions.

There is no such thing, plain and simple. It's inherent in how PS relies on its standard functions and most of them aren#t parallelized, either. That and of course the video functions are kind of plugged on after the fact, anyway, so there is additional overhead or bottlenecks. That aside, on a more general level even more optimized video apps take time for encoding and processing plus there are other factors to consider such as file I/O. In light of that 3 minutes rendering for 1 minute of video is already pretty fast, all things considered. You know, 20 years ago this could take half an hour and we spent days rendering out the simplest stuff. I really think you need to manage your expectations here to a realistic level. Beefy hardware isn't everything...
