  • Low Memory Error during Photoconsistency

    I've been following the photoconsistency tutorial to try and improve a detailed mesh but am running out of memory during the final stage with images at 100% resolution. Is it possible to determine if the issue is with my system of video RAM from the log? It's no big deal if i can't complete it but i'd be interested to know how much more memory i'd need in this case as i'm planning to put together a new PC soon.

    Log file is attached with partial details below:

    Hi sam,

    unfortunately raising the parameters this much has the drawback that it requires more system memory. You ran out of RAM (your computer memory, not your video card memory) (not enough host memory).

    I would recommend adding at least 16 more GB of ram if you're going to run at 100% PC values. If you can't, make sure you have no other applications open and/or lower the photoconsistency resolution value.

    I hope this helps!

      Hey Andrea

      Thanks for the feedback. Glad it's just the system RAM as I was planning to retain the old GPUs when i replace the PC.

      Maybe Dragonfruit will help too ?

        Yes dragonfruit will have a lower memory footpring but i would still recommend at least 32GB of ram though!
