Is it possible to write multiple TIFF frames at the same time with libTIFF? I am facing a task of writing TIFF files which could potentially contain multiple multi-gigabyte image frames, with pixel data arriving piecewise in an interleaved fashion and I do not want to collect and hold all these gigabytes in memory buffers.

Yes, it is possible, using TIFFCheckpointDirectory.

Thanks, will try this out.

Another option is to write your own TIFF output code.

Yes, I have done this in the past and in some sense it was more pleasant than to fight with libTIFF quirks. Let's see...

Cheers
