CameraSettings.txt file name

Post by calan »

When capturing a single image or image sequence, the camera settings file needs to be named to match the image file, like it is when saved during live stacking. As it is now, all of these files are named "CameraSettings.txt", and have to be renamed before they can be moved or re-organized into other folders.

Hi,

please can you share your settings from the 'Filename Settings' page of the settings dialog. Every option I have tried so far saves the settings file with the same name as the image/movie file but with the extension changed to '.capturesettings.txt'

ie

m51_0001.capturesettings.txt

cheers,

Ah, got it. Happens when you capture multiple frames via frame limit/time limit/unlimited and are saving to fits/png.

Sorted it now
