Maximum height of a patch in presentation mode

Nov 17 2010 | 3:10 pm


I’m trying to create a patch with a height greater than 33000 pixels in presentation mode.
Object are disappearing beyond 33000 pixels.
It seems than there is a limitation of the height in presentation mode.
Is it true ?

Same thing in patching mode.
By the way I see the grid even beyond 33000 pixels

I think it’s 32768 for "15-bit" size, though I think it also extends in the negative direction the same amount, then repeats, so "16-bit". At least it did in Max 4.

Though I just made a new patch and put in a [panel], then changed the size in the Inspector (patching_rect) to 0 0 32000 32000. It chugged along for a minute, then crashed. Maybe the overall patch needed to be bigger before making a gigantic object within it?
