Batch Process Hanging

Post by john80504 »

In the past I have used the Batch function to process multiple groups of images from a Landscape Panoramic set consisting of dozens of focus stack groups with no issues. I am attempting to process some images I shoot last week and have hit a roadblock.

I am trying to use the Batch function to process these images. I am finding that when I tell the program to start the batch process it hangs on the second or third group of images. I have left it for over an hour to see if it would continue.

The current set I am working on consists of 7 images per focus stack and I have 18 sets for a total of 126 images. I am setting the Split Stack by image count set to 7 and it shows that I have 18 stacks to process. I am outputting the stacked image as a tiff format file. The photos are taken using a Canon 5DSR 50.1 megapixel camera so the image files are quite large. If I process each set manually it does just fine. Only have issues if I attempt to Batch process them.

My computer is a Hexcore i7-6800 CPU@ 3.40 GHZ with 128 GB of RAM. Video card is a GeForce GTX 970. Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit. The hard drive where I am processing the images from and to has 3 TB of free space. I have a secondary SSD drive that I have setup Helicon Focus to use as it's Disk Cache folder. That drive has 664 GB of free space on it.

When I tell the Batch Processor to start Rendering it does 1 or 2 of the images and then hangs permanently. I have tried several different Rendering Methods and all do the same thing.

Looking for suggestions on how to get this Batch process to run.

Could you please let us know if the problem persists?
Are you running Helicon Focus v.7.6.1.?
Would you be able to provide several files for a test? If so, could you please upload it to any file storage and send a link to
