#209 pix_image magick leaks memory

I have a patch that loads two new images every frame with two pix_image]--[pix_texture]. Only the latest two images are needed for each frame. I'm also using pix_image "thread 0" so that the images are loaded before the current frame is displayed, and pix_texture "rectangle 0, quality 2".

After some time Pd is using all my memory (I have 8GB ram and no swap) and the system becomes unresponsive.

Using valgrind I see there is a severe leak, probably in Magick loader (log attached). Same problem whether I use png or tif.

  • indeed, there is a memleak in the MagickCore backend (using the C-api).

    there is no memleak in the Magick++ backend (using the C++-api).

    both backends can be used to provide the gem_imageMAGICK.so plugin (Magick++ is preferred automatically)

    i'll have a look into it
