I would like to know the maximum size as well (I assume the limitation is on the size). I work with a visual artist, and the images she sends me are very large. I have tried lowering the resolution as well as resizing them, and at some point while doing the former I could import the image, however jit.pwindow would display something that had little to do with the original. Extreme resizing measures have led to me being able to import the image correctly, however it would be very helpful to know the maximum size so I can just tell her what to send, or at least know how far I need to go when treating the image. :)
I was trying to load an 4096w x 4096h jpeg into jit.matrix and it rendered garbled in jit.pwindow and jit.window. The image loaded fine in all other software (including Quicktime Picture Viewer). If I resize the image’s width to less than 4096 pixels then the image will render fine.
If I import a 4096w x 4096h jpeg into jit.matrix and then immediately export it, the exported file appears fine in other picture viewers
So I’m concluding that jit.matrix is working just fine and that the issue resides with jit.pwindow and jit.window when they attempt to render images larger than 4095 pixels wide
My solution is cropping the image to 4095w x 4095h
