Hello,

I am creating a simple particle animation with 30k particles and wind-force. Somehow, it takes forever to just play them, and it is using only 3-4% of the CPUs.. What am I missing?

Thank you

30k particles with wind force should be fast, however the slowdown can be caused by many factors
heavy sources, display issues or settings, etc.

to help you pinpoint the source of your slow down you can open Performance Monitor (Alt+Y), hit Record and play your simulation
you should see what takes the most time
