I have been grooving on Render_Pattern=3 lately. This causes the middle
of the pic to be rendered first, which is usually where the heavy blocks
will live. It's also good for preview.
I was doing +wt6 for awhile. I agree leaving only 2 threads is
sufficient to have a responsive computer. But I preferred to run +wt8
and then turn off 2 POV-Ray threads with Task Manager while using the
computer, and then turning them back on when done.
But, now I run Ubuntu and I have no control over affinity and priority
