Bug report #18067

Print @600dpi possible

Added by Ann Verbeeck about 6 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

Category:Map Composer/Printing
Affected QGIS version:2.18.16 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows10 Easy fix?:No

I need to export a print of 2x3 m to tif @600dpi.
When I export to tif, I get a pop-up that there is 1454 MB needed to export.
I continue.
Then I get a "Geheugen Allocatie Fout" (memory allocation error?) with the message that I should try in a lower resolution of smaller papersize. (see added file)
I also tried on a PC with 32 MB RAM, but I get the same error. I can make a tif @240dpi. That's the maximum.
Are the size or resolution restricted?

Make sure you're using a 64 bit build. Otherwise you need to wait for qgis 3 built on a qt 5.10 backend, which substantially increases the maximum size of outputs.
