Exposure in file name

Post by roelb » Wed Jan 09, 2019 10:18 pm

I have set following file name for "Live Stack (Processed)":
{TargetName}\\{TargetName}_{Camera}_Stack {StackedFrames} frames_{Exposure} s_Tot.Exp. {TotalExposure}_{DateTime:S}

The resulted file name:
Capture_Test Camera 1 (Deep Sky)_Stack 4 frames_20,0s s_Tot.Exp. 20s_2019-01-09T23_07_31
The individual exposure time is set at 5 s but the the file name shows the TOTAL exposure time.

Is this a bug?

Thanks in advance.

I've just tested these settings and I seem to get the results that I would expect from them

The first exposure value is 1.3 seconds here and that is the length of the individual frames and the 2nd is the total exposure of the stack.

Do you see a different result of this?

Cheers, Robin
