dealing with really really big textures.

In trying to use large 3d matrices as textures in open GL, one quickly hits the limits of a graphics card’s vram. is it possible to reference a matrix in a texture without moving the entire thing to vram?

main 3d texture -> jit.submatrix -> jit.gl.texture perhaps?

or you could play with the srcdim type of control too.

I had considered that. the issue is that the section of the texture shown onscreen is a nurbs surface. does the software renderer (rendering on the CPU) have a limit in RAM?

Could you post a patch perhaps? Im uncertain why the texture being on
a nurbs if of import.

The software renderer has a bunch of caveats, I dont remember them
all specifically, but you will also take a large speed hit as well.
