[Warning]: Contour: resolution = 0.656167, pixels = 3978320/4000000.

I received this message during the contour generation:

[Warning]: Contour: resolution = 0.656167, pixels = 3978320/4000000.

What does this mean? Is there a comprehensive user manual that covers stuff like this?

Dear Erik,

Sometimes, the chosen resolution for the contour lines is too fine and it will take too long to generate. To avoid that, the software downsamples it to efficiently reduce processing time while keeping the output quality. The warning appears just to let you know, and it is not something you should worry about.

We are still fine-tuning the log output and I have passed on to our product development team the suggestion to display the information some other way, so as not to cause worry.

Thank you for pointing it out!
