I'm wondering how long it normally takes to "load resulting layers" after performing a batch process for overviews on QGIS.

I have a large raster dataset that will ultimately be merged and need to build the pyramids beforehand. The batch process ran successfully within like 5 seconds but it's been a few hours.

  • Is it faster if you load the output layers manually? Also, it can help to un-check "render" (bottom-right corner of QGIS project window) before loading many large raster layers into a project. – csk Apr 1 at 17:08
