  • Ultimate 10 high CPU Usage in Develop Mode

    High everyone

    I have been using ACDsee Ultimate for a while. I started with version 9, but now I am using the latest version 10. Since I upgraded to version 10, I have been noticing that whenever I start working in Develop mode the CPU fan speeds up and CPU usage jumps way up, even to above 90% for short spurts. If I sit in Develop and do nothing. it comes back down, but while I cropping and applying Tune presets, CPU usage jumps Back up again. Originally, I would stay in develop while processing RAW images, but Ultimate kept freezing on me and I would have to stop the ultimate task and restart. More recently, I am using the "Done" button after each RAW image has been developed, and back in Manage mode I chose the next RAW image and then the Develop tab. This has stopped the freezing up, but not the high CPU usage.

    I am running on a Windows 10, 64 bit machine. I'm wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this. I did have a ticket in for the freezing up, and ran through a bunch of support suggestions, none of which helped, but after changing my workflow to not stay in Develop the freezing has stopped and I forgot about the ticket.

    I believe this the the Windows event data for the freezing problem:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\ACD Systems\PicaView\ACDSeePicaView.exe
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\ACD Systems\PicaView\ACDSeePicaView.exe

    There are some reports of Dehaze causing problems (see this post). It's probably best to report the problem direct to ACDSee support here. Include your machine's specifications: CPU, RAM, video card if it is not part of the motherboard.
