How to use the Decimation Feature on WAVE
Wave decimates data because when pulling all that information into memory on the user interface, it can cause the program to slow down and run out of memory.
FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between WAVE File and templates?
WAVE Files bundle up the data loaded and graph settings you have set up. Templates aren't going to bundle in the data. It will mainly consist of the graph settings and files that you can load. The data is not part of the template. You’re able to look at a different data set as long as it’s the same file types.
