    Large Images

    AlbumMan
      I am trying to cut away a corner section fo an image to make it an octagonal shape. Using copyPixels and creatematte. However I cannot create a matt large enough at the resolution I need ie 3000pixels+. I understand "Director has a size limit. Does anybody know what this is? Is there any other way of doing this.
      Regards

          I may be a memory limitation - if you create an image and check to see if it
          was void, you can tell if you ran out of RAM.

          page=void -- clear space if possible
          page=image(pageWidthpx, pageHeightpx, 24)
          if voidP(page) then
          return "Not enough RAM for page at this size and resolution."
          end if
