How is Solar Live View coming, looking forward to release. I would like to do animations like that. Keep up the good work.
I actually released it a few months ago. The animation from today was created with the latest version. You can download it from the links down in my signature. It is a work in progress and I am constantly improving it but the current version is pretty functional. I am adding auto-guiding now to keep the prom perfectly centered. Quite a challenge but I have all the hard parts licked but as always the devil is in the details.
Here is a screenshot of today's session.
1. SharpCap is running in the upper left. I have the cross hair on a specific point in the prom. I have to use the ROI pan/tilt controls to keep it centered. Once auto-guiding is working that will not be necessary.
2. SLV is running in the upper right. The green box is my alignment region. This is what the program is using to align frames in the video file. It should be an area with high contrast detail. You can choose various settings for color, gamma, contrast, disk blackout, etc.
3. The little box in the lower right is the animation window. Frames are automatically added to it as they are captured and processed. You can drag the frames around if needed if the animation is not perfectly stable. You can delete frames that aren't as sharp and you can scroll the animation backwards and forwards while it is building. It is pretty amazing to see how dynamic this stuff is.
