- Second problem : smartblend sometimes can crash. We made intensive debugging in this code and found some issue behind. First, it won't happen if you have a lot of memory, it only happen when you are are either constrained by low ram ( 2 Giga for example for huge gigapixels rendering ) or by the system ( 32 bits OS cannot provide you more than 2 Giga even if you have them ). The following advises are just here for low RAM system.
* to prevent crash : reduce the number of cores for rendering gigapixels. 4 is good on win32 with 2 GB ram ( not more ).
* smartblend can use from time to time a lot of memory during a small period of time. So let him do and close other application ! I know I have firefox and outlook opened regularly ( outlook 300 MB, firefox 250 MB, so I would lost 30% of a 2 GB system just with these 2 ... )
Why does this appear to happen with APP/APG V2 and not with APP 1.4.2 on same system, with same image set and same rendering setup?
How does number of cores relate to the problem - I thought Smartblend was single threaded, or perhaps I misunderstand what that means?
