I am attempting my 1st LRGB image processing in Nebulosity 4.  I reached a point that I can not figure out what or how to do next.

 

I have 100 each LRGB images Preprocessed, Normalized, and Aligned (Saved each frame) as instructed in Paragraph 13 of the help file.

 

When I select LRGB Color Synthesis tool (LRGB: Traditional HS) and attempt to apply my Red frame images, Nebulosity will only allow me to select one Red image.  (I assume the Green, Blue, and Luminance work the same way.)  If this is correct, then I will have to combine 4 images 100 different times to make 100 color images to be stacked in the next step.  This can't be right!

 

What am I missing?

 

I am slowing working my way through this process, but am stumped right now.  I sure there is an easy answer to this.  Can anyone help?

You need to stack (combine) all of your individual Red frames together first to make a master Red frame, and do the same for the other channels, and then use those files to construct your LRGB image.

Thanks again RIGEL123
 
I have now created my 1st LRGB image.   It's not very good, but I did it with you help.
 
Each time I do one, I get a little better.  Image attached.
 
Thanks for the help

Glad that worked for you, nice job as you can see the Trapezium nicely in your image and the colors came out nicely too.  As you continue your journey you will want to explore some programs that give you a bit more control over processing but you have a good start.
