Does Tracker have a file size limit?

Hello all, I am using Tracker to try and measure strain with respect to applied load (time syncing Tracker's analysis of a video file with load data). The displacements due to load are quite small, so I am shooting video at 4K and 30 frames per second, to maximize detail and let AutoTracker pick out small movements of my markers.

I have tested Tracker with smaller files at 4K (up to about 150 MB) with no problem, but the full experiment is over four minutes long and 3 GB in file size. So, I suppose, getting back to the topic of the thread, does Tracker have a cap on how large files can be before the software will not analyze them?

Thank you.
