I've got 37 images that were taken with my new camera at a resolution of 3296x2472.
They all merge and stitch correctly. Collectively they only take 105MB on disk as the originals.
When I export, it downsizes to something far smaller at 1265x169.
It shows an optimal of 21701x2899.
I tried resizing it to the optimal and it swears I'm out of memory and/or disk space. Small problem. I have 2GB and I've watched with both Task Manager -and- Iarsn TaskInfo, and both swear I never really go over 1.1GB in use on RAM. If it's using my C drive for temp space, I have 28.9GB free yet. I hardly think it should be running out of space in either area, given that the original footprint of the images isn't even 1/20th of my RAM or so.
I even tried resizing to half the optimal--same issue with a height of 1450 and the corresponding aspect-preserved width.
Technically, this shouldn't be happening. I have enough RAM--it's not even using all I have...not even close. I have way more than enough disk. I'm not sure where it thinks it should be working. I have two drives with 5x that space free each that I could tell it to use instead if it's using external files, but I've tried refreshing My Computer's directory listing and looking at the free space on C as it works and it's not eating that either. Actually, very little disk activity at all. 0.9GB minimum available physical RAM, over 28GB of swap and/or temp space available -minimum-, and it's still hitting an issue?
It does appear to be resizing to 7485x1000, however. It's past the point it's been choking on me. The point remains that I'm nonplussed as to why it's doing what it's doing. EDIT: Nope. Choked further in this time. Retrying at Nx900 now.
All that aside...Holy Hannah, that thing is -amazing-, even at the way-downsized resolution.
Ideas on what's up and how to get it to render at optimum when I believe I have the resources and every diagnostic tool I have at my disposal concurs?
EDIT2: I got it to go with at 4491x600, but not Nx625. Odd.
