GoPro Fusion Studio 1.3 Crashing (High Memory Usage)

Not sure if this will be a possible workaround for Fusion Studio users, but I had trouble with rendering at 5.2k Cineform. What was happening for me was memory usage would skyrocket past 90% and would close the program without any warning to prevent the system from completely locking up/crashing. I did research on the forums and didn't find anything useful

 

My system has 16GB of RAM... saving with H.264 I had no issues, ProRes was so-so for usage, but Cineform would use nearly 60-75% of total memory available, an absolute ridiculous amount. My main workaround was to close other programs to get my total memory usage to below 30% for my system BEFORE lauching Fusion Studio. Once I would begin the rendering process with Cineform, it would gradually climb to around 80% total usage, then it would finally level off and hang around 80-90% total usage and was successfully running, without crashing.

 

My advice for other users... try closing other programs that you're not currently using and monitor your memory usage with Task Manager. You could possibly adjust your Paging File Size (Advanced System Properties --> Performance Options --> Advanced --> Virtual Memory), but I didn't do this step as with SSDs is not reccommended as will deteriorate number of writes more rapidly.

 

I don't know why something like this would be happening... poor software coding is all I can guess. That's all the advice I can give on this that worked for me, but good luck.

 

My system specs: Windows 10, Intel Core i7 2600k, Nvidia GTX980, 16 GB RAM, SSDs, ASUS P67 Sabertooth Mobo

Re: GoPro Fusion Studio 1.3 Crashing (High Memory Usage)

It is a known bug, if you are keen to use cineform though, what I do is to keep task manager open and monitor the memory usage, if it gets above 90% I pause the current render in Fusion Studio, wait for memory to get below 40% and then resume.

Another work around is to swap from 360 audio to normal stereo, there won't be a memory leak this way but you will loose the directional audio which is a big no no for me, so I usually just use H.264, if it's CineForm for editing purposes then I have to babysit the process.
