Export file - huge cpu load

Hi, Windows 10 user -
I have a small cpu activity monitor on my taskbar; whenever I export a project to mp4 the meter jumps right up to 100% and stays around there (96-100%) for the duration. I’m worried that this will harm my computer? And is it OK to surf the internet or work on another Shotcut project while it’s exporting? Thanks!
PS… for further information, when playing a mp3 file my meter shows 30-50% cpu activity.

I would recommend you disable/remove the CPU activity monitor. It can harm your calm. :wink:

:relaxed:Thanks Steve - well my computer hasn’t started smoking or burst into flames yet so I guess all is OK :grin:
