render "low priority"?

what does the ‘low priority’ button mean in the render window?

When i try to render without this button selected, nothing seems to happen, but it works fine when i check this… what does it mean?


the “low priority” option in WAV writer lowers ReNoise’s task priority in Windows. This means that it will free more system power for other tasks to be performed, as WAV writing can be a very CPU/Disk intensive operation, expecially when writing to separate WAVs.

So check this if you want to do something else while rendering, expecially if your PC is too much slow when doing it.

NOTE: this will obviously slow down the rendering process.

thanks for the information, that makes sense. cheers
