iray - lower priority for rendering
show user profile  mike_renouf
Does iRay have an equivalent to the "low thread priority" setting in vray?

i.e. something that makes it possible for me to still use my PC for other things when rendering instead of watching the mouse cursor stutter around like a drunkard?

EDIT
Sorted - I deactivated the CUDA cores for rendering - obviously the graphics card was being overworked by iRay and couldn't cope with normal windows navigation.

Nvidia suggest having two graphic cards for this reason. It's better now than it used to be, but still is a bit sucky.

If you turn off the CUDA rendering, it will be horribly slow. iRay rendering basically means leaving the computer alone unless you have multiple gfx cards, sadly.

It's much more user friendly when rendering. If you can, get access to the daily builds, it's got excellent interactive rendering.

I loved iRay, but they don't really seem to have done much with it in the last year.

When I want to do other stuff while vray rendering I usually uncheck two cores in the "set affinity" option in the device manager.
Won't it do the trick?

Can only do that with the CPU not the GPU sadly.
