Learn maximum size of Overlay flie in Paramics

UPDATED: June 13, 2017

Maximum size of an Overlay file/uncompressed image is 133 MB. The size in bytes of an image file can be calculated using following formula: (width in pixels * height in pixels * colour depth) / 8

If this value is less than the 133MB limit (139,460,608 bytes) then it can be used, if not the following message is displayed:

"The  uncompressed image data is larger then the maximum support size (133mb). Try reducing the image size, resolution or level of detail, or try splitting the image into 2 or more smaller tiles."
