Autorun a SC sequence on SharpCap startup

#1

Post by BCAS »

I read a thread from last year that suggested adding the ability to auto-run a sequence when SC starts, similar to the existing function that auto-runs a Python script.

I Have not been able to find any evidence that this has been added. If it has and I missed it, please point me in the right direction. If it is not yet available, are there plans to add it?

One reason for asking is that the Sequence Planner has some useful Time to Start on Astro Event options, e.g. Twilight and Dusk. I do not think think (again, point me in the direction, if I am wrong!) that Python has this capability,

THANKS for a great program, Robin!

Hi Bryan,

sorry, this feature has not been implemented yet, but it is possible to work around using the ability to run Python on startup. For instance, use this python file as a startup script

Code: Select all

SharpCap.Sequencer.RunSequenceFile('c:\\files\\test.scs')
That should run via python and immediately run the specified sequencer file.

cheers,

Robin
