I need to render a walkthrough over the next week on the computers in my office. Last time I had to do this it made a lot of people really frustrated and lowered the overall productivity of the office because the rendering was making everything they did go slow.

I never thought I would be asking this, but is there a way I can limit the number of cores the rendering engine uses so I can leave everyone with a core to work with? 

We use 2013.

please don't tell me to just do it over night or the weekend because

1- I need like three to 4 straight days of render time

2- This is an architecture office. people come in for the day between 7 and 9am and leave between 4 and 7pm. I can't be here for 12 hours every day to run around and stop and start all the renderings...

3- I wanna start them now, and it's Tuesday.

 

thanks!

in task manager set the render process "affinity" to cores 1 and higher. reserve 0 for working

THANK YOU so much I did not know this was possible. Most of the computers are quad core so I will be sorry to lose 25% power but I still have a week and people won't complain :-D
