v3.3.7313 (64-bit) - livestack - save as 32-bit stack

Robin,
as per subject, save as 32-bit from livestack doesn't - it writes out the camera settings file, but doesn't write any image data

Cheers,
Carl

Re: v3.3.6882 - offers to delete wrong frame

Thanks for the update, Robin. As you probably guessed, my use case is during a capture run, the wind, for example, buffets the scope, guiding goes wild, and the next frame is heavily trailed: great to just be able to clobber this bad frame, rather than having to hunt it out later. Quite understand i...

Re: v3.3.6882 - offers to delete wrong frame

Quick update: 3.3.7030 still offers to delete the wrong files, and the capture directory isn't updated correctly - looks like the "start capture" code path doesn't set the "current capture target directory" variable, nor the "last frame captured" upon write-frame...

Re: Request remember window sizes

Hi, Robin, sorry for the long delay in getting back to you - the weather in Cheshire has been 'uncooperative'... Really happy to report that the window openings in 3.3.7030 are now working brilliantly, even in my complex setup: this, combined with the /instance=2 feature really does make my life eas...

Re: Flicking/jerky movement of image in Sharpcap

Hi, just viewed your mp4, and I’d say you have USB transfer issues - if you look carefully, there are several tearing artefacts on the frames where the image jumps...
There is a very good section in the manual on debugging USB issues.

Settings for /instance invocation

Hi, Robin, I’ve been trying out the “/instance=2” invocation, which works, but what I’m looking for is a way to transfer most of the settings across from my first instance: this might sound a bit strange, but the chances of re-typing, for example, all of the “custom file name templates” without erro...

Re: 17fps cap?

I managed to achieve much higher rates with my ZWO ASI 183MM/C by selecting a lower resolution, which gave me a window onto the sensor frame: if the AA behaves as you’re describing, I’m glad I didn’t buy one from them - ZWO brought out the Pro first!
