I’m trying to import a 3.9GB QuickTime file (ProRes422HQ) into the compositor for some keying. But when I import the file, Blender crashes. The VSE can import the video with no problems. (I’ve got 32GB RAM and set Blender to use 20GB.)
Sure I can import the video into the VSE, select the part I want to key, render out as file sequence; and then re-import into the Compositor - do the key - and render out again. But that’s not efficient.
The irony is, I then need to re-import the keyed clip as texture for a mesh… isn’t there a way to take a compositor output straight in as an texture input without having to render out? A program like Nuke can do that.
PS: Using Blender 2.69
