Hi Kirk,

a separate program to decompress TIFF files is just too much work all the way down the line (writing it, maintaining it, documenting it, etc). An option is nice and simple and 10 minutes effort and it even has a little warning explaining that compressed TIFF files may not open in some software. Job done and back to thinking about what SharpCap 3.3 will do :)

I expect that compressed TIFF files actually use more resources in SharpCap (you have to have an uncompressed image and the compressed data, you have to do the compression, etc). Overall, unless you are using one of those full frame 35Mp cameras in RGBx16 bit mode for about 200 megabytes per frame then I think all will be fine. If you *are* using one of those cameras then please send it to me for testing :)

cheers,

Robin
