there is no software limitation.
memory of your gpu is the limitation.
if it's for non real timerecording, you can try rendering in a big famebuffer, it's possible that it use less memory than the main Gem window.
if it's not enought, you can still move camera to render only part of the images and add them together latter.
there is an example in 02.advanced/09.snapshot

if it's for real time use, then you'll need an other computer.

I'm on a 2 years old macbook pro, driving an *NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB* chip and I'm having trouble creating a window bigger than 7000*5000 pixels. Values exceeding these will end up in a blank window (no console message). I would definitely need some insights about how to create BIG pictures in GEM. Thank you very much for your help.
