Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

I also had one more question.

Which is better to use AVI or SER?

I really never understood the difference.

Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

Robin, I knew it was something stupid that I had did. Can you tell me exactly where I switched the histogram setting and where did you find that setting in the camera settings text file I sent you? Is raw a setting that I can use in SharpCap? I assumed that since I have a One Shot color that I shoul...

Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

I also wanted to mention that I recorded these videos on a external SSD drive if that makes any difference and I did not think of trying it directly to my hard drive because I am hurting for space.

But remember they very first AVI file that worked was also recorded to this external hard drive.

Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

Hi Robin, Here is the One Drive link to two different sessions with six files. The good one is Jupiter (AVI file) and the bad one Saturn (SER file). https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhC_ey62O9wegegLTYAfUPH5pef-QA?e=cH4pTI I created a folder for you called 'Robin' on my One Drive. You can see Saturn in the SER Vi...

Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

Hi Robin, I had another frustrating night trying to capture Jupiter and Saturn. In some the videos, I can now faintly see the planet if you look very close. It does not look like that while I am actually doing the capture which is very strange. I have only been able to produce one good video of Jupi...

Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

Re: Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

Robin,

Will do. I have the settings and the AVI images. Do you want to see the one AVI that worked or just one of the bad ones?

Black Video while playing AVI files from Sharpcap

I was taking some video captures of Jupiter and Saturn last night and out of about 10 captures, only one AVI file seemed to work when I played it. The other nine captures all come out as black when I play the AVI. I have never seen this before and lesson learned after taking the capture of the video...

Plate Solving

I see that Sharpcap 3.0 supports plate solving and I was wondering if it's compatible with Plate Solve 2?

I see that there are 3 options available but none of the options lists Plate Solve 2 which I have used in APT.
