Repeated crash on .jpg import
Using CatDV 8.1.10 on Windows 7 64-bit, I have repeated crashes (app hangs, Java out of memory errors) trying to import a directory of 300 AVI files, 160 WMV files and 55 MOV files comprising a total of 280GB space.
I then tried to import a smaller directory of 8 AVI files and 1378 .jpg stills, comprising a total of 70GB. CatDV still crashed on import every time.
I then removed the AVI files and just tried to import 1378 .jpg stills, and it still crashed.
I then changed the CatDV list view to “concise” which uses less memory, and Tools | Preferences | Previews & Thumbnails to “small”, tried to import 1378 .jpg stills, and it still crashed.
I then deleted any .jpg file over 5MB size, leaving 1195 total files comprising 3GB total space, and it still crashed.
I then installed the 64-bit Java for 64-bit IE (don’t know if CatDV can use that or not), and it still crashed.
Most frequent failure mode: Import file (not responding) dialog. Typical Java error: “java.lang.OutOfMemoryError, processed 291 of 1387 files.
Is this a known problem? Is there some workaround?
