Also TIFF images beyond 2GB are a problem for most conversion tools (since the TIFF standard is only a 32bit standard (( While there is a 64-bit extension to TIFF, it's hardly supported.))).

-We recommend **ProEXR** ( [[http://www.fnordware.com/ProEXR/]] ), there you will also find some simple command line tools to display OpenEXR images or to extract detailed information. +<batch_converter|^|^openexr_tools|->

-New applications such as **Affinity Photo** ( [[https://affinity.serif.com]] )  also support OpenEXR images (as well as layered OpenEXR images) natively. +

-====== Tips & Tricks ====== +

-  * To speed up the Surface Editor, increase the size of the preview sphere visible at the top of the Surface Editor, or set the 'Refresh Rate' to 'Manual' in the Surface Editor options. +
- +
-  * Our free db&w Tools (available for free at [[http://tools.db-w.com]] ) include nodes that complement infiniMap, such as a simple colour correction node or a node to convert colour spaces. +
- +
-  * On OSX the number of open files per process is limited to 256 files as a default. As a result of this, infiniMap can use around 200 images per session. \\ This limit can be increased, but requires some work in Terminal. The line: \\ ''limit maxfiles 512 1000000'' \\ needs to be added to the file ''/etc/launchd.conf'' (if it doesn't exist then it needs to be created) and increases the limit to 512 files. This is a plain text file. It will be active after a reboot.+
