Not sure being in the right forum to explain my problem.
I have a problem with layers management.
I often use many layers to draw: paint layers, groups, filters layers, transform layers, file layers…
Can sometime have more than fifty layers in a krita file.
The problem is, when I want to remove a layer, move a layer, or group layers, krita sometimes hang on, and can take 30-60minutes just to it.
For example, here I was trying to Quick group 5 layers: in layers tree, group was immediately visible, but quick group operation took approximately 45minutes… (first time, krita had crashed after 30-40min)
I’m working on Linux Debian 10 (kernel 4.19.0-8-amd64) on 8 vCpu workstation with 32GB RAM, using Krita 4.2.8 appimage (tested with 4.2.9beta and got same problem)
Krita file contains 97 layers (of many types), geometry is 6201x8770 px
Here some additional memory information
And performance configuration
During the long grouping process, Krita process is very high, and peak at 500% cpu (I understand that over 100%, more than 1 cpu is used for process…?)
The problem doesn’t occurs systematically.
For example with this Krita file, I’m able to move/delete/group some layers without any problem, but for some others, it could take a long time…
Restarting Krita doesn’t change anything.
I understand that so many layers can be hard to manage, but finally no: Krita works pretty well, drawing is fluid and only some nodes operations in layer tree generate problems
My question are:
- Does anyone have an idea about this problem or already had this kind of problem?
- Is it possible to activate some logs to determinate what really happen? how?
It seems that internal is full… Can this be the origin of my problem? If yes, which recommended value can I set to this setting?
