I’m giving Lightfield Studio a try to convert my 3D Blu-ray movies into 4V format for the Lume Pad. (I want to try a direct comparison between stereo movies direct from the Blu-ray discs in ST, directly-ripped movies played in 4V, and ripped movies processed through Lightfield Studio and played in 4V.
So far, Lightfield Studio is going very slowly, mostly as I expected based on comments made by Nima in a YouTube video. However, what I also notice is that it seems to be running in a single thread. According to Activity Monitor, since launching the app last night at 8:03PM, it has accumulated 13:46:15 in CPU time. That’s during a period of 18 wall hours.
(Other apps that are known to be multithreaded do show CPU utilization that is >100% (out of a maximum of 400%). Lightfield Studio is consistently using <10%.)
I just wanted to ensure that it is behaving as expected. If it is, then it’s fine, but I will ask whether the app supports multiple instances running on the same machine so I can parallelize my conversion efforts.
