OVITO Crashes when Loading File
« on: March 22, 2019, 06:29:47 PM »
Dear OVITO Community,

I have a quite large GSD video file (~ 500 GB) and OVITO crashes when I try to load it. Has anyone experienced this before?
Is it something to do with OVITO? Or, is my only hope to cut the video file into shorter pieces?

Thank you.

Hi Egor,

No, we haven't tested the GSD file reader of Ovito with files of that size. I just run a few test with much smaller datasets when I developed the code.

How many frames and how many particles does your GSD file contain?
