Photo dimension more than 4000x4000 pixel

Hello , I have a question to the employees of the Pixel Bender Photoshop PlugIn . Is there a real chance for the near future  to make Pixel Bender Photoshop PlugIn able to work with filters on photos wich have more than 4000x4000 pixel-dimension . Most of the semiprofessional or professional DSLR today make photos with higher dimensions .

I will buy the new Sony A65 - and there will be photos with the following dimensions :


Still Image Size 16:9 :    L size: 6000 x 3376 (20M)M size: 4240 x 2400 (10M)S size: 3008 x1688 (5.1M)
Still Image Size 3:2  :    L size: 6000 x 4000 (24M)M size: 4240 x 2832 (12M)S size: 3008 x 2000 (6M)


I think that it can't be the solution for all users of such a modern DSLR to take photos only in 'S size' or reducing the image dimensions in Photoshop to max.4000pixel . I buyed me the Pixel Bender Filter 'PSKiss Edge Gear' for sharpen my photos (over the GPU from the graphic-card) but it works only on photos with max. 4000 pixel ( I tested this on photos with different dimensions ). I had Email-contact with an employee of PSKiss and he said that it is because of the restrictions from the Pixel Bender PlugIn to max. picture dimensions of 4000x4000 pixel.

The hardware (CPU,GPU,RAM,VRAM) of todays computers has no problems to handle bigger photos in graphic-software like photoshop but I think too the

'bottle-neck' for this problem are the dimension-restrictions  from the Pixel Bender Photoshop PlugIn. I would be great if you have a solution for this in near future.

    The 4Kx4K limit in the Pixel Bender Photoshop CS4 plugin was added for a good reason--many drivers at the time reported the ability to handle 6Kx6K or even 8Kx8K textures but failed well under 4Kx4K--although it really pained us to add that limit. We reevaluated, and subsequently removed, the 4Kx4K limit in Photoshop CS5 and replaced it with a 128MB texture size limit. This would allow users to process many of the standard image sizes coming off the DSLR cameras of the day. We will reevaluate the 128MB limit for the next release of the Pixel Bender plugin although I can't say whether it will be removed--the decision will be based on the results of our testing. Which version of Photoshop are you using?
