please try out FDRTools with small images first, say 1000x1000
This is why:
- tonemapping big images with the Compressor algorithm is REALLY
memory intensive. Your machine should be equipped with lots of RAM
if you want to work with bigger images. 4GB are good, 8GB are much
better. With only 1GB or 2GB you will soon come into a situation
where processing virtually stops and you get the impression that
nothing happens any more. This happens when there is not enough RAM
available and the operating system starts to "swap" data between RAM
and hard disk.
- the Compressor algorithm is REALLY processing intensive also. Your
machine should have a fast double core processor, better quad core.
As an example: my machine is equipped with a quad core CPU and 8GB
RAM. This allows reasonable processing times, even with bigger
images. It is not real time processing though.
I hope these explantion help solving your problems?
