Time video recording stops before its done

Post by kd5giv »

Hi,

When I set the quick video menu to capture 1000 frames it does it well but when I tried 90 seconds the recording stops at 9 seconds. The camera is a ZWO 120mm. It's not a big deal since 1000 frames works well, I was just wondering if it could be a bug. It's my first time using it for that function. I tried it a couple of times. The format of the video was set at ser.

Below is the camera settings file produced with the short video it produced:
[ZWO ASI120MM-S]

Hi,

Thanks for the report – I am also seeing problems when trying to use time-based quick captures – I will investigate and put a fix out in the next update.

Cheers, Robin

Hi,

I put a new version online with the fix to this problem in – if you go to the downloads page you will find it at the top of the list. Note that this new version is not yet available via auto update.


Cheers, Robin
