Memory versus Disk space usage

Dec 18, 2013 at 12:02 AM
I'm trying to get 200 page TIFs of quite high quality converted into single page PNGs of a lower quality.

The problem I'm having is that my C# app is using shed loads of disk space but hardly any memory. When I have it working on 2 files at once it takes up 12gb of disk space and only 50,000k of memory.

How do I set it to use more memory and less diskspace?

Thanks for any advice you can give me.

With MagickNET.SetCacheThreshold you should be able to change the memory limit. You could also try reading your image page by page with the FrameIndex property of MagickReadSettings or input.tif[index].
