Lightfield Studio Resource Consumption

I recently tried to convert a 2hr SBS film on my 2017 iMac…was working overnight, came to it again this morning to see huge amounts of resources used…then it finally gave up after what looked like 1/4 of conversion. Any others have any experience and/or tips?

Hello @leosetton, welcome to the Leia Forums.

@greg is probably a good person to help to advise you with this.
I’m thinking that an eGPU might help, (as it looks like you don’t already have one,) but as I don’t have a Mac, I wouldn’t want to confuse the issue by taking guesses.
(Thanks in advance, Greg.).


Hey Leo! @sanmathi.bharamgouda may be able to provide some info regarding this.


Thanks Nick and Matthew! it is the oddest thing. never had an app consume over 100gb memory before!

It seems to be a bug with mast versons of Mac OS according to Leia CM on Twitter.
He says that a new version will be release next month.
I have the same problem with a brand new MacBook Pro Core i9 and 64Gb Ram.
I can encode videos if they are not more than 3 minutes long but for a longer video, it crashes.
Too bad the soft does not use the GPU more than the CPU. Maybe on this next version ?
