Live SWtack - Save individual frames

Post by mbfera » Fri Oct 11, 2019 12:38 pm

Is it correct that the saved Individual frames come "black & white" while the Live Stack image is in color as expected?

Here is the Camera Settings:
[ZWO ASI224MC]
Debayer Preview=On
Pan=0
Tilt=0
Output Format=FITS files (*.fits)
Binning=1
Capture Area=1304x976

#Black Point

Please let me know.
Thank you
Maurizio

Hi,

The individual frames from a colour camera will be in raw format, which needs to be processed in order to show the colour – see this thread for full details viewtopic.php?t=254

Thank you Robin, I'll try this way even if it looks quite strange because with the same settings not using Live Stack but saving single capture the row images show in color with any programm (DSS, PixInsight, ecc).

Might be done the debayer process with other programs (MaximDL, Registax, PixInsight) instead of PIPP?

best regards, Maurizio

Hi,

Yes, most of those applications will also be able to do the debayering process, although the steps required differ for each of them.

Cheers, Robin
