ImageMagick/Convert Memory issues

software development

#1

Hi,

I am trying to use ImageMagick/Convert via the command line and always get this message:

“Yikes! One of your processes (convert, pid 11719) was just killed because your processes are, as a whole, consuming too much memory. If you believe you’ve received this message in error, please contact Support.”

I am using this command with the -limit option too in order to avoid the issue, but it is still happening:

convert -limit memory 32mb -delay 20 -loop 0 *vis.jpg vis.gif

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Try running the convert on your local machine and then sftping the file over.

If you are using a mac or linux you can write a quick bash script to convert the file and upload it to the right place. If you are using windows you can use WinSCP for the same purpose:
