How to speed up the optimization?

First, we must emphasize, that speed and quality are mutually exclusive. If you want TonCut to optimize faster at the cost of quality, use the guidelines below.

All the guidelines apply to the Search profile tab in Search options.

  • Decrease in search profiles volume - you can switch off or delete some of the search profiles, e.g.:
    • If all of your sheets have the same size, sheet order doesn't matter - you can set it to "From small" or "From big" profiles.
    • If "Equal from big" and "Equal from small" profiles are on the list, you can switch off the "From big" and "From small" profiles - "Equal and more equal" method usually returns the better results.
    • Turn off the free profiles if they are on the list.
  • Switching off or simplifying global optimization - can significantly increase the speed of optimization. However, the results can be drastically worse - you can expect huge waste on the last sheets, in particular.
  • Switching off or simplifying adaptive sheet order changing - you can increase the threshold to 30% or higher. You can also decrease the maximum number of tries and change cycles. Finally you can completely turn off the sheet order changing - this way your TonCut will optimize like TonCut 5.
  • Setting time and volume restrictions - while setting time restrictions take your PC processing power into account.
  • Decrease of search accuracy - tries numbers can be decreased to 1. Additionally, you can decrease the tries numbers in the first run.
  • Upgrade your license to Professional version - if your PC has more processors or a multicore processor you should consider upgrading to Professional version. Professional version can put to use the full power of your computer, thanks to the multi-threaded optimization.
