Multithreaded support for HEIC Viewer

Post by Wandrer »

Is it possible to get multithreaded support for the HEIC Viewer module?

As it takes ages to create a thumbnail with the buildin HEIC viewer, multithreaded support for single pictures or by creating thumbnails for a few pictures at the same time, both would save much time for many users, as most computer have 4+cores these days and can work on 4 to 8 threads at time.
