Few questiosn about GD and GD Pro

Post#1 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 5:31 pm


I´m thinking about purchasing the GD with Pro Extension. I want to use it to create new worlds and planets and then export it to Photoshop CC to finalise.
How many DPI can be exported by this way ? The final planets and worlds must be in 300dpi because of printing them at highest photo quality.

Is there any possibility to test it before purchasing ? I´m not sure my computer can do it because it has no dedicated graphic board. The onboard Intel HD Graphics 620 runs DirectX 12.1 but there is only shared memory.

Thanks a lot

You can do renders with up to 14x the viewport size, so, with a fullHD screen you can go up to 26k x 15k, so it should not be a problem.
Unfortunately, there is no way of testing it before buying. I'm also afraid that the onboard card will not support it ... the experience I have with Intel GPU, is really poor and does not sustain the computation load. The generation of planets in HD is using really a lot of VRAM and a mid-high dedicated GPU is definitely required.
