Different Capture Destinations

Post by smithn00 » Sun Jan 20, 2019 4:08 pm

I use my QHY 174 M/GPS for two purposes. Each requires a different file destination folder and file name template. Is there a way to store that information so I can easily switch from one activity to the other?

There are no easy options in SharpCap to achieve what you want but there are a couple of possible workarounds. One is that the settings for different versions of SharpCap are separate to each other, so if you're happy using SharpCap 3.1 for one purpose and SharpCap 3.2 for the other then that would work. Another option is to make multiple logins on your computer as the SharpCap settings and different logins will be the same.

Cheers, Robin
