Yes, that is my fear as well.

There must also be something with deferred processing or something like that. There's no way one is going to get a 14032x9632 in 32f in gpu memory, not even on a quadro 400 and still have space for something else...

I've been experimenting a bit, and an ordinary layerstack (a4, 300dpi) with a dozen layers works fine on my intel gpu and a little bit of graphcis memory, though.

I want to experiment some more here -- but the trick is arriving at

a) a good, extensible technology choice (glsl? cuda? opencl? whatever?)
b) a good, extensible design
c) something that krita can grow into, because we don't want to do full rewrites (I hope...)
