extreme memory consumption when creating texture
« on: January 04, 2013, 04:03:17 PM »
I have recently upgraded to version 0.9 and am now experiencing very large memory consumption when creating orthophoto texture (mosaic mode, atlas size 16000x16000, "fill holes" option checked). The data set is very small (only 7 photos of 10 megapixels), but memory consumption increases by almost 14 GB during the "blending textures" step. Is this a bug?

P.S.: Interestingly, in other projects (with many more images), memory consumption for texture creationg is lower (e.g. 8 GB for a set of 38 images, same texture atlas size). Memory consumption for texture creation does not appear to be predictable. Any idea why?
