First of all, thanks for a great plugin! Smile

I'm not sure how common this problem is, but when I've bath processing some images, I find that windows focus's on photoshop after each frame. This means its a real pain to work on something else whilst dofpro is processing.
Is this something that can be fixed?

Hi re:Form;

This is an old trick that you can use for not just DOF PRO but for any app that is taking up too much of your processor. You MUST have either a hyperthreaded CPU or a DUAL Core CPU.

1. Open the task manager.
2. Under Processes find Photoshop
3. Right-click on it, and select Set Affinity
4. Deselect CPU 0.

Now your system response will significantly speed up and allow you to work at the same time, however, the processing will of course take longer to finish. Ideally, you would want to install DOF PRO on a second computer that can be devoted to it, among other apps.

Hi Richard and others,
speaking of hyperthreading/dual cores, I find that DoF Pro only uses 50% of my P4 HT machine at max, being single processor app. Is there a possibility to get it running on "full power", multi-threaded?
If not, then that'd be my proposition for the wish list!

Or is it Photoshop limitation? Using CS2.
