Ok so I tried out my new Baader white light filter with my Canon EOS RP as capture. I tried 4-5 different methods of stacking and all failed for 1 reason or another. The biggest issue was trying to stack CR3. One method, Photoshop, kept telling me at least 40% needed to overlap yadda yadda before it would auto align. My 1080p @60 FPS video was either slight out of focus, or I used Autostakkert3 wrong. I ended up MANUALLY aligning 40 subs in Photoshop and then stacking Median. Here’s the final with a few tweaks. All feedback welcome!

You might try downloading PIPP which is free software which I believe you can run your RAW files through and convert them to an AVI or SER file that Autostakkert can then stack for you.

Unfortunately PIPP doesn’t support CR3.

Ahhh, I missed that they are CR3 and not CR2!  Do you have Lightroom too?  I have had some success with stacking milky way images but have never tried solar.

Lightroom cannot stack. I just batch exported CR3 to TIFF from Lightroom. Photoshop still won't stack the TIFFs. Same issue. But now I imported the TIFFs into Autostackkert. My manual stack came out better. We'll see what else I can do...
