Stacking very large files
Posted 10 October 2012 - 03:51 PM
Let's say I have 100-500 frames taken with a DSLR in photo mode, each frame is then 18mpx. I would like to select the best N frames from the stack to fight turbulence. Is there a way to do that automatically?
Stacking programs such as Autostakker or Registax seem to halt when processing very large files... Maybe there's some other program or a trick to do it. I would like to be able to sort the frames and use the better ones for processing.
Thanks for your help!

Could you be a bit more specific here? If you can replicate the problem for me, and supply me with some of the materials (one or two frames should be fine, the rest I'll simply copy) I can try to fix it.

This is not going to be some trivial change in AS!2 I think, but I'll try to have a proper look and see if I can come up with something.
A quick question already. When I open the files in Photoshop, you can see some bands of information are missing on the left and right side of the image. Why is that? Is this perhaps not the source material, but already a mosaic of some sort?

I tried R5 but it runs "out of memory" and R6 just crashes. Autostakkert goes as far as analysing the images but crashes while stacking.
So far no luck

It sounds like you need more RAM.

What I'm doing now is resizing everything to 640x480, running Autostakkert to select the best frames, then manually deleting the bad frames from the large files. Aligning with PtGUI pro and finally stacking with Photoshop.
It's a long process and I was hoping for a trick or setting to do it directly with Autostakkert or Registax.

I think I indeed may need some magic tricks.
Have you tried AviStack 2 by the way?? Perhaps that'll work for you.
