Low CPU usage when applying „unsharp mask“ effect.

Hi everyone. 

As soon as I apply the unsharp mask effect to a clip or a adjustment layer and try to export the sequence, my export time multiplies drastically. 

For example:

sequence unsharp mask effect turned off: 2 minutes export time. 
same sequence but with unsharp mask effect turned on: 50 minutes or more. 

I did realize, that CPU usage is extremely low when the effect ist turned on (hovers around 30%). Without the effect CPU usage is pretty much always over 90%.

 

Is this a common problem? Is there a easy fix for this? 

Thanks in advance,

Chris

What's your RAM on that system, and how heavily is that being used?

I have 32 GB of 3200mhz DDR4 RAM. 

During rendering it hovers around 40% usage. 

But it's the low CPU usage when using the Unsharp mask effect that irritates me. 

It feels like my CPU is using only one core to render when activating the effect instead of all eight...could this be the case?

And the CPU?

 

I'm trying to puzzle a bit here ... applying Unsharp on my laptop (not even my desktop) ... doesn't even add any notable time to a render & replace to say Cineform.
