Pixel mapping capacity

Does anybody know how many RGB fixtures I can control over the Pixel mapper?
I have more or less 2000 RGB fixtures that I like to do on the mapper.

Setup: 1x Full boar 4 & 1x DP8000 (blue)

And Yes I know I can do it with a Mediaserver...

    I believe you should be able to control as many as the console can handle. So 8 universes without any additional hardware or 1360 rgb fixtures / pixels

    You're limited to the console's processing or the DP 8000's processing. So with a FUll Boar (12 total universes) and a DP 8000 (16 total universes) you get 28 universes of control. A generic RGB fixture takes 3 channels of DMX. It would be roughly 4760 RGB fixtures.

    Should be yes, i did now a show with 1200 rgb fixtures with the pixel mapper (just on the Console).
    Sometimes the Full Boar crashed or the console freezed for a few seconds if i did some changes....

    Do you remember if the plot window was open? If so, then you will need to close it and you will see better performance.
