CPU Usage 25 to 65% instead of nearly 100%.

LR CC utilized all CPU Cores while the Export. Nearly nailed it on 100%. Great! Quick Export on a real Intel 6-core is nice.

LR CC 2015.2 and 2015.2.1 and even now 2015.3 - whoom... 25 up to 65%.

193 Pictures exported:
With LR CC 2015.1.1 = 07:30 Minutes
Ran the Update
With LR CC 2015.3 = 12:12 Minutes

Ehrm... This is a REAL annoying bug. When will you fix that?

Hey Becky.

Hmmm. Ridiculous. I'm in the largest LR-Facebook-Community in Germany and noone else reported that problem. Several people wrote, that Export is nailed around 100% on their machines. Some people wrote, that the Export is the fastest ever. Hmmm. My logic says me, that cannot be a priority adjustment of the CPU-Power.

I don't know the Source-Code of LR and all the modules, but with my knowledge it should be a very easy thing to let the User chose by himself about that priority. In General Preferences. As well as a live switch on the Main-GUI. Let them chose the feeling they want. Name it "The Experience switch". :)

Hey, i have a really nice computer and LR is ugly SLOW. When exporting i don't want to work further on my pictures. Exporting normally means: I'm ready with the editing, give me the pictures. i'm waiting to copy them to the USB-Stick for my clients.
