what is maximum allowable size of ViewCaptureToFile command?
I need a large resolution image in order to do a raster to vector conversion but no file is savedover a certain limit.
(even if Rhino says “image successfully saved as…”)
What numbers have you tried?
up to 30’000 x 15’000 works
50’000 x 20’000 doesn’t save
50K x 20K pixels is 4GB in 32 bit resolution… Maybe your video card can’t handle it?
I don’ t think it is a video card issue
(Geforce 2060S max resolution is 7680x4320=33Mpix)
I run _ViewCaptureToFile
set save location, file format and resolution
file is actually saved to location
up to certain limit the file is saved and I can open it.
Over a certain limit (roughly 500Mpix, 30’000 x 17’000 still works)
Rhino says: Image successfully saved as…
but no file is saved to location.
OK, dunno then… @jeff?
500Mpix is a reasonable resolution for my actual needs but I wanted to know the actual limit.
I am tuning an “raster” workflow to create silhouette of bad surfaces in alternative to Make2D, Trace plugin or Rooster GH definition.
Will post a new discussion about this when it makes sense.
I don’t think Rhino imposes any limits. That isn’t necessarily good.
At some unknown setting, your system resources and driver will impose a practical limit either by failing, crashing, or through some other nastiness.
Based on me watching messages like these go by, there is no average resolution you should expect.
that’s a fair answer…
