Software

  • Vision Software Suite
  • Vision Development Module

Issue Details

  • Starting with Vision Development Module 2019, writing AVI Files bigger than 2 GB is supported. However, it is still not possible in the 19.0 version. Why? 

Solution

Starting with Vision Development Module 2019, writing AVI Files bigger than 2 GB is supported. But, NI do not control the third-party pieces of code like codecs. 

These third-party codecs can be the bottleneck when it comes to file size limitation or any other limitation. The code on NI side is now prepared to save files larger than 2GB, but NI cannot guarantee the other software components are as well.

Codecs, Microsoft Video 1 or Motion JPEG I can create file larger than 2 GB without any problem

Additional Information

100 images using Microsoft Video 1 and Motion JPEG have the following sizes:
  • Microsoft Video 1: 22Kbytes
  • Motion JPEG: 6Kbytes
