Constant consumption of video card resources


Recommended Posts

After I open a 3840 x 1080 picture in paint.net (this is a screenshot of my desktop with two monitors), paint.net starts to permanently consume 10-15% of the GPU resources. Consumption is constant and does not depend on any factors.

Processor: Ryzen5 1600X Six Cores
RAM: 16Gb

GPU: Radeon RX 560
OS: Windows 10 (full update)

Paint.Net version: 4.1.12 (Final 4.212.7454.35665 )

And do you have an active selection? The selection is animated, therefore it will always consume some amount of GPU resources if the window isn't minimized.

Yes but when you paste a screenshot, the whole image is automatically selected. Therefore you have a selection active, and the selection is animated, therefore it consumes resources.

 

Just deselect and this stops (Ctrl+D, or Esc, or whatever).
