Crash report

Michael,
This happened while I was trying to extrude a height map using Max's v0.6 script.
Perhaps ran out of memory.
Crash dialog is attached.
No crash report location shown and "E-mail crash report" seemed to do nothing.
If you can tell me where the crash report is likely to be (if it is likely to exist) I'll happily email it to bugs@moi3d.com
Mike.

Hi Mike yeah if the crash report location is not filled in on that dialog it means the crash dump generation failed. If it was generated it would be either in the MoI install directory (c:\Program Files (x86)\Moi 3.0) or in your %temp% folder. It would be a file named moi_report1.zip, or moi_report2.zip, etc...

The only way I know of for the crash report not to be generated is by running out of memory though, so it's pretty likely that's what happened.

You should probably try to make a less complex surface using a lower resolution image, or also something you can try to reduce memory load is to change the display mesh setting to make a coarser display mesh. You do that by going to Options > View > "Meshing parameters" and set "Mesh angle" to 25 degrees and uncheck "Add details to inflections". That will make a somewhat more jaggedy looking display but will also consume quite a bit less memory on tremendously complex surfaces like you are probably generating.

- Michael

Thank you very much, Michael. I'd thought of reducing the size of the input image but the rest I had no idea about.

Love Moi.

Mike.

Hi Mike,
this script automaticaly downscales extralarge images.
Could you send me that image? I'll check it.
