Deep Zoom Composer fails to export RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm a neophyte to Deep Zoom and SilverLight.  Maybe someone else has also had this problem.

    I have a collection of files, all 640 by 480, and all are tiles of the same image at different resolutions.  I want to export them to a Visual Studio C# solution.  It's worked for two tilings:

    • 7 tiles by 7 tiles (4480 by 3360 pixels)
    • 14 tiles by 14 tiles (8960 by 6720 pixels)

    By "it worked", I mean that I exported from DZC as png, and the VS2010 solution opened the files and I was able to make the software zoom and pan for the above two cases.  So I don't think I'm doing anything really wrong.

    When I try to export 28 tiles by 28 tiles (17920 by 13440 pixels) DZC stops exporting with not all the image files created (I think only about one third of them).  In this case I also don't get the screen asking if I want to preview in a browser.

    If this works I will want to do 56 by 56 tiles (35840 by 26880 pixels).  Is this asking too much?

    Does anyone know whether DZC has a limitation, or how I would work around this problem?  Has anyone had a similar problem and fixed it?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I have some more information on the above.  I rebooted my computer (which has 2GB of memory) and tried to export the 28x28 tile image again.

    This time it got a little farther, but then Deep Zoom Composer crashed.  I tried to debug with VS2010, which has no code, of course, but it tells me:

    Call stack location:

       PresentationCore.dll!System.Windows.Media.MediaContext.NotifyPartitionIsZombie(int failureCode) + 0xa1 bytes

    Anyone who knows what's up, please answer.  Do you think I need more memory?

    Here's the disassembly:
