Dear guys,

How do u deal with this 'out of memory' problem when doing panorama? Is changing to a 64 bit OS the only solution? I've tried to stitch about 20 photos averaging 4mb each and always get this promt.

Please help. Thank you very much

What OS are you using? How much RAM do you have? What software are you using?

If you can't give good info, don't expect good answers...

I'm using Windows XP service pack 2. Have 1gb ram. Playing around with a few stitching softwares like panorama factory and autostitch and they all say 'out of memory'. How?

Thanks for helping

1GB is a bit low. With RAM so cheap nowadays, upgrade to 3GB.

How many images are you stitching together? You could also just stitch 4 at a time

Some editing software like photoshop will have preferrence settings that let you set how much RAM / Virtual memory to use for the editing, u check that option first to set to the highest value u can afford, like around 1GB you already got. If not, upgrade ur RAM capacity.

It doesn't matter much with 32bit or 64bit, if u got a 64bit machine with only 1GB RAM, situation is the same. (though 64Bit rarely got 1GB RAM only...:D )

Guys, thank u for taking time to reply. A few more questions:

1. Is my motherboard 64 bit processor? I read the manual and is doesn't say how many bit though there's a x84 based PC thingy somewhere and also says support hyper threading. My processor is AsRock P4i 65G

2. If i upgrade to a new processor, will i run into problem with software compatability like some of those don't work on a 64bit processor?

3. I have about 12gb of space to work with in my C drive. Is this enough?

4. Emerald and Rashkae, with my current processor, if i upgrade to 2 gb of RAM, will it help?

5. Del_CtrlnoAlt, what does swap space means?

6. I can't find the setting to increase the memory for Panorama Factory. Can anyone help please?

Thanks again

Hold down your Windows Key and press Pause (Break), releasing both and bring up the System properties window.
Go to Advance,
Under performance --> setting --> advance
Try changing Virtual memory,see how it goes.

No, this is your motherboard, not your processor. And why are you after 64-bit? You don't need it. Just upgrade RAM.


2. If i upgrade to a new processor, will i run into problem with software compatability like some of those don't work on a 64bit processor?
Again, why even go 64-bit? There's no need.

3. I have about 12gb of space to work with in my C drive. Is this enough?
Yes.


4. Emerald and Rashkae, with my current processor, if i upgrade to 2 gb of RAM, will it help?
Yes, upgrade to 3GB actually. That's the max windows XP can see.

5. Del_CtrlnoAlt, what does swap space means?
This is space on the HDD that windows treats as temporary storage, like a slower RAM extension.

i'm so honoured you replied 6 times :bsmilie:
Anyway limit of ram on XP is 3.5gb, that's what it shows on my system properties.
3gb will be more than enough.

I'll be a bit different here. If you are using Adobe Photoshop CS3 (I don't know about other image editors) going to 64bit to access >4GB RAM will help. Photoshop alone will not use more than 4GB RAM but its scratch space will make use of any extra RAM above 4GB. This will help greatly if you are editing large image files. Panorama especially. Generally most recent Intel and AMD CPUs are 64 bit capable. Even the old but newer edition Intel P4 is 64bit. CoreDuo/Core2Duo/QuadCore definitely are. But when using more than 4GB RAM please also make sure that the motherboard chipsets can support it. I think from 965 chipset onwards should be safe.

I had 1gb ram previously. I also have the problem of 'out of memory' when stitching many files together. After i upgraded to 3gb ram, my problem is gone. =D

Guys,

I did some checks on my systems already. It's quite old liow. My RAM is the freaking DDR400 type. Buying new ones to add on will cost a lot more than buying the new RAMs. Looks like if i wanna upgrade, i may as well change the motherboard, processor and RAMs.

I've got a G4 Powerbook with 1gb RAM. Will this be ok? Can anyone recommend good Pano software for Mac please?

Thanks for taking time to reply. Appreciate it

actually, ~3GB is not the max a 32bit OS can see (it really is 4GB)... its what the OS will allow you to see... the OS itself chopes some of the RAM for its own unseen purpose... this from a person who is running 4GB of DDR400 RAM...

even for your Powerbook can benefit from more RAM when doing panos...
