Monitoring Background Tasks

When rendering, you can monitor the process, and pause or cancel tasks.

You can adjust the priority with which tasks are processed, pause, or cancel them. This is useful if you have a number of lengthy processes underway and want to free up some processing power to focus on editing. You can either lower the priority of a task so that it does not use as much of the computer processor capacity, or pause the task.

To automatically open the Tasks window when a task starts, select the Options tab in the Global Preferences, and activate Make Tasks Monitor Visible When Task Starts.

A status bar below the wave window and the montage window shows the progress of the current rendering process, and lets you cancel and pause the rendering, without opening the Tasks window.
