Is there a way to influence how many threads VTM uses?

One of my relatively lowly laptops uses 6 threads when using magic on VTM, whereas my super-powerful NUC desktop with 132GB Ram & 16 CPU threads available only uses 3 under Magic and is very slow. Both have silver licenses. Why is this and how can i improve the speed of VTM on my NUC?
Thanks

GIF file very small

I love the GIF functionality but is there any way to make the resulting file display any larger on my screen? At the moment the GIF plays in the centre of my display but occupies only about 1/100 of the available display - probably 3x3 cm on a 34inch display - I would zoom in if possible or create t...

Re: Does VTM take advantage of GPU-acceleration?

Is there a way to influence how many threads VTM uses? I have a CPU capable of 16 threads but Magic only seems to make use of 3 simultaneously.

Re: Potential defect?=PC keeps asking for password on existing DB

Thanks for your response. It only happens when the database is being opened from a NAS, although the PC can access the NAS normally for all other applications (e.g. I can see the Videonizer database in MS explorer or One-commander). Seems to be a problem with access permissions from this laptop to t...

Potential defect?=PC keeps asking for password on existing DB

I have licenses for 3 PCs but when I try to open an existing DB on one particular PC it keeps asking for a password even though I have not created a password for this database. The DB opens fine on the other 2 PCs without a password.

Re: Does VTM take advantage of GPU-acceleration?

Thanks for the advice. I've settled on an Intel NUC12 pro Mini with Core I5 (12 cores, 16 threads), 32b RAM, 4.4GHz CPU and 500GB SSD. Cost around €1,000 which seems pretty reasonable for this performance.. From what I've understood, this should speed things up somewhat!
Thanks again.

Re: Does VTM take advantage of GPU-acceleration?

I have a related question. I'm about to buy a new desktop PC and would like to optimize the build to speed up both VTM and Videonizer for a large (>200,000 movies, 50TB) data base. VTM is particularly slow on my current laptop, but I'm not sure whether the constraint is RAM, Disk,CPU or network (the...

Re: add indication if video NOT exist

I have a related issue. Since creating my original Videonizer database, I have moved some films between folders in Windows and then updated Videonizer, which found the videos in their new location. However Videonizer still lists them as being in their old folder as well, leading to duplicate entries...

Re: Ultimate and engine 1 consistently fail to make thumbnails

I don't appear to have a "prevent collisions" checkbox on VTM (see screenshot attached)
All files are NTFS on a NAS.
