No AVI option when selecting an ASCOM camera

Post by jmgoldba » Tue May 23, 2017 3:50 am

Why isn't there an option (v3906) to save in AVI format when I select an ASCOM camera?

Hi,

AVI only supports 8 bit colour depths. If your camera ASCOM driver is reporting a MaxADU of more than 255 then it has a sensor that has a larger bit depth than 8, so SharpCap cannot save the images it produces to AVI without data loss.

cheers,

Robin
