Hi Ferret, I was looking at your images above and thinking there might have been a bit of rotational blurring going on that could be dealt with by doing shorter captures and derotating. I am sure you can handle WinJUPOS. Darryl (K-Man) has done a really helpful tutorial document which I found invaluable for getting up to speed.

 

If you capture your videos with WJupos compatible file names (an option in Firecapture) it becomes much more straightforward, because WJ does the initial settings (date and time) for you based on what it sees in the file name.

 

The process in summary

 

1. Capture your videos (max 3 mins; limit the overall period for each group of videos to about 15-20 mins, e.g. 5 X 3 min videos).

2. Stack and sharpen each video.

3. Import each stacked image into WJ and do an Image Measurement on each - this creates a *.ims file for each image.

4. Do a "derotation of images" process in WJ by selecting the relevant *.ims files you have just created.

5. Take the resulting image file - a product of the files you just derotated, and do further sharpening and adjusting in say GIMP or photoshop.
