Gigapixel 3.05 unstable

(AllMediaLab) #1

Hi,

Updated a couple of times this week and now using version 3.05 on Windows 10 latest updates. Same process that I did before from TIF 16 bits to TIF 16 bits or from TIF 16 bits to jpeg takes forever from 6000px width > 12000px width.

Moved to a other computer for further testing with a Xenon processor also on Windows 10. Did try it with “Use dedicated Graphics Processing” shut off but no change. By the way the text: “Use dedicated Graphics Processing” is getting outside the drop-down menu, because of the too small fixed width of the drop-down.

Also noticed that at the end of the process the applications “in process icon” keeps turning and I have to close the application to stop it (the stop button doesn’t work).

Did an other test on a laptop i7 16 gig Windows 10 from 6000px to 12000px Tiff 16 bits to Tiff 16 bits the process doesn’t stop by it self again, I had to close the app to stop. From Tiff to jpeg stops like it should.

Tried to upload a screen video, but no luck.

Regards,
David

That particular GPU is basically a minimum, does your PC have an additional GPU? Because if it does you can allocate that to the application. See the instructions here for using Switchable Graphics:

If you don’t have an additional GPU you can try CPU processing by going to the Help Menu and un-clicking the Use Dedicated Graphics Processing entry.

Continue to use this for AI GigaPixel, or any other Topaz products, as the HD5200 is really under powered.

Yes somehow after a huge Windows 10 update it flips back to the motherboard graphics card, When I checkt it in Windows System after setting it back in the Nividia preferences it still shows this card HD5200, but the Gigapixel app shows the Nividia card.

same problem here, updated driver, new installation did not help.
As AI Giga stopped working on a specific image, I started to investigate.
One step, I changed the size in PS to an even number of pixels.
Now it worked without crashing !
The problem seems to be size/pixel related.
Eventually this helps you to overcome this problem.
