I have a modest laptop with dual core i3 CPU, and while rendering large scenes net surfing becomes very sluggish.
If I restrict rendering cores for just one, I can surf on the net normally.
Question is, can I switch the rendering cores between 1 and 2 during the rendering? If I go to have a cup of coffee, it’s better to have two cores working instead on just one, and when I come back, I want to get other stuff done too.
In Luxrender this option was available, but I want to keep working with cycles (or Eevee if I choose to let go of version 2.79 ).
I also have an integrated GPU (Intel HD 620), which isn’t very useful either, I suppose.
