MB Looks CPU Usage

Im using a q6600 Quad system. When i render with Vegas normally my CPUs run at 100%. An hour of Hdv takes around 55minutes. When i use MB looks my CPUs run on average at about 25%. This is only when i add MB. Any effects that came with vegas dont give me any problems.

Anyone else find this?

The MB Looks effects aren't multi-processor aware so it drops you down to 1.

Multi threaded is the word and its not a word MB knows about.

Its for this reason I try and re-create its effects using the built in plugins as much as possible and use looks for the little, special moments. Otherwise were talking 4x longer to render.
