Hiya. New here.
Quick question. Is there a way to set up Octane so that I can still watch movies while Octane is rendering? Right now, If I try to watch a movie while Octane is rendering the playback slows to a near stop. Any help is great appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe another way to state the question;

What do the various Priority Settings mean?

make sure your GPU you use for display has "use priority" checked in the preferences, then turn priority to low in Octane.
Might not work flawlessly, but should be good.

If You don't work with heavy models & have mono with APU (CPU with iGPU) then plug Your screen into it or get extra GPU - that the best solution. Personally I haven't noticed any difference with that prior it box..
