I have some memory issues when exporting a tiff image stack to the big data viewer file format. I’m loading a 5.5GB tiff image stack of ~1400 images with 2000x2000 pixels in 8 bit grayscale. I tried different chunk sizes, automatically chosen and manually. Also only just one layer, only saving the original resolution, no lower levels for faster loading times.
I have 32GB memory and 32GB swap, it is enough to get to frame ~600/1400 before running out of memory.
Whats going on, why is it not cleaning up used memory automatically?
