Naming folders or images

Post by Jolasa » Mon Feb 18, 2019 5:37 pm

I am doing DSO imaging with a ZWO ASI1600 Cooled camera.

On my SharpCap, at the top, there are these 2 items (among others):
Target name (you can type in this box)
and
Frame Type (you select from a droplist)
Light
Dark
Flat
Bias
FlatDark

SharpCap will put the Target name in a folder name, but it does not put the selected image type (Light, Dark, etc.) anywhere that I can see, either in a folder name or an image name.

How do I get the selected image type (Light, Dark, etc.) to work?

Hi,

You need to use the manual filename templates in order to be able to put the frame type in the file name – see https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#Filenames%20Tab

Thanks Robin,

I check the box in Sharpcap Settings\Edit Filename Templates Manually. What happens then?

How do I actually use the filename templates to name files.

Hi,

That information is also in the documentation at the end of the section on file naming – see https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#Filename%20Templates

Cheers, Robin
