Saving large focus stacking result not possible

Post by EmKar »

Hi there,

I am trying to focus stack an extremely large stack of images (76598 x 43783 pixels, 61 layers). Whilst the stacking process surprisingly succeeded, requiring a computer with 256 GB of RAM, saving the result seems to be impossible due to its dimensions. Trying to do so produces an error, either "Failed to save image: Maximum TIFF file size exceeded" when saving to TIFF format, or "Failed to save image: Maximum supported image dimension is 65550 pixels" when saving to JPEG.

So it seems that loading BigTIFF images is supported, but saving to BigTIFF format is not. Are there any workarounds to save the stacking result?

Thanks for your support,
Michael

Thank you. That's interesting. Discussing it internally now. Will look deeper into it and will let you know as soon as we have useful findings to share.
