Hi guys been taking 15sec exp for 3 hrs to make a timelapse but for some reason when I load the files into PIPP it says something along the lines of unknown compression error (something along those lines). My settings in shharpcap are RAW 8 and save as tiff so cannot see where I have gone wrong here. any iideas?

There is tiff file with LZW compression and then uncompressed tiff file.

I guess sharpcap makes either which PIPP doesn't accept.

So you have to use some converter software to make it other format.

I would use IrfanView to do it but there are loads of software for it.
