Issue Details

I got error -1074395288 in IMAQ Image Acqusition. What is that? 

Solution

Descrtion of NI Vision error 1074395288 is below:
"The operation would have exceeded the capacity of an internal container, which is limited to 2,147,483,648 unique elements."

Above elements are the size of memory. NI vision software is programmed to only accept a maximum image size of 2GB. So, you are getting this error because the image you are trying to take in is larger than 2 GB. To resolve this problem, it's the only way you acquire smaller image than 2GB.

Additional Information

This is the example of how to calculate size of images:
  • Image Sample 1
    • Resolution (Dimensions) : 18287 * 47470
    • Bit depth : 24 bits
    • Size : 18287 * 47470 * 24 = 20834013360 bits ( 20834013360 bits / 8 bits per byte = 2,604,251,670 bytes % 2.6 GBytes)
