Re: Lightroom settings?

When I do a Lightroom export, it appears to max out all eight threads. Is it actually faster to break up the export into concurrent tasks? I timed exporting a group of 200 .CR2 raw files and then exported it as two concurrent groups of 100, and it took the same amount of time both ways. All eight threads ran around 100% in both cases.

My test shows that I would easily export 3000 pictures in no more than 45 minutes either way, so I can't figure out why the OP's export would take 3-5 hours.

I am running a fairly old i7-3770 @ 3.4GHz and LRCC, and exporting to an internal spinner.
