Was wondering what sets the limits of this and do processors with multiple cores/threads help. On my Razer the most I can set this number to be is 5. However i have a 6 core processor. Also some of our machines have many more cores.  Would love to find the best way to adjust this number.

Well, the maximum number of parallel conversion tasks is not a variable.
It doesn't adjust to how many cores/threads you have in your pc setup.
For now this number is "just set" to 5 as maximum in Pixera but we can discuss that number internally to adjust it further.
But normally all the cores should be utilized with the same amount of workload on the conversion tasks, independend from the amount of conversions running actually.
So it shouldn't be the case that one conversion task just perform on one core, or is that different in your setup ?

I have not looked at core usage while that is running.  I will try that next and report back.
