Hardware acceleration failing

Post by PhilS »

Hi again, Catherine,

I am trying to composite two images, one with 32 images, the other with 116. Each file is 907 MB. Hardware acceleration would be attactrive.

When I render without Apple M2 Ultra, the compositing works fine. When I change to using Apple M2 Ultra, close and restart HF, and render, it fails. I redid this experiment several times, and got the same result.

What do you suggest?

Thanks,

Phil

Hi Phil,

I think you encountered this before, was it on a different Mac or the same one? If I remember correctly, the last you said this only happened on one machine.

Also, please right-click any of your TIFF source files - Image information - post the screenshot of the info dialog.

Hi Catherine,

Yes, this is on the same machine. I can try running the file on my laptop if you want.

Hi Phil,

I meant that you should right-click a source file in Helicon Focus. Sorry about unclear instructions.

Hi Catherine,

two screen shots with hardware acceleration turned off:
HF data 2.jpg

HF data 1.jpg
(303.61 KiB) Not downloaded yet
Do you want me to redo with acceleration turned on?

Thanks,

Phil

Thanks Phil,

No, this is simply information about your source image files, it doesn't depend on OpenCL or anything else that Helicon Focus does. The files look very typical, nothing special or unusual, so I don't think the problem is related to your specific images.

Do you experience any similar corruption issues when working with images in any other software?

No corruption issues when working with images in any other software.
