I have 280 pgn files that I want to merge and convert into one pdf.
PNG files names are in the sequence p000.png, p001.png etc and total space is about 30mb.
convert p00*.png to myfile.pdf
and it worked fine. Luckly enough in the right order.
But when I do:
conver p*.png to myfile.pdf
It consumes all my 4Gb of memory and half my swap. Then it crashes with the error
convert: memory allocation failed `myfile.pdf' @ error/pdf.c/WritePDFImage/1595.
Any idea of how to make a workaround to this problem?
I think that a good enough solution would be to use
convert one file at a time to pdf, with the same name. Then use
pdftk to merge them. But I don't know how to use
convert in this way.
