I have just bought ZBrush for Mac and every time I start it up my CPU temperature shoots to 99 degrees and the fans stay on constantly. I have a late 2013 Macbook pro with an i7 processor and 16GB memory. I did a search on Google and this apparently is a known issue. People have suggested turning off Multithreading in the Performance sub-menu under ‘Preferences’ and although this does seem to work in that I no longer get the issues when I turn off the ‘MultiDraw’, ‘Auto’ and ‘MultiThreaded IO’, they turn themselves back on again when I restart ZBrush.
I tried turning the options off and hitting ‘Store Config’ under the Config options but the only option that stays off is the ‘MultiThreaded IO’ option - I have to go and turn the other two off manually each time or my temperature and fan speeds shoot up.
Now on reading the threads Pixologic says its an Apple issue and Apple says its a Pixologix issue but no-matter who’s fault it is, surely Pixolocic can make the ‘Store Config’ option keep the other two multi-threading options stay off? It is so annoying having to turn these off each and every time I start ZBrush.
I’m new to this application so maybe someone has found another way of altering these preferences to solve this???
Thanks for any help on this.
