    I have been tinkering around with Blender, an open source 3d modeling/animation/etc program.

    I followed a tutorial on YouTube and created animation and now I am rendering it.

    It only gives me the option to use CPU or GPU to compute or render the image and animation.

    Does it use only 1 cpu because I have 8. I also have a GPU. (I will put specs below)

    The real question is: Is there some way to speed up the rendering process?

    (can I assign a priority through task manager, or can I tell it to use more CPUs, or something)

    Another question:
    My computer sometimes seems to get bogged down while using Blender, like my CPUs are all maxed out. The other thing it does is the cursor will occasionally take off and go in its own direction, pushing ESC key will stop it, but it is weird. It only does this while operating Blender. I downloaded Blender from the official site. I don't have any "cracked" software on my box.
