Re: l rgb and ha

Hi Heno, you can use the Compose module (set Luminance, Color to L + Synthetic L, Mono) to create a blend (also in mono). Then save this blend. This will be your new red color channel Yes, in a way. At this point and in that mode, the terms Luminance or Chrominance should not be taken literally . Se...

Re: Workflow Clarification

I tried tweaking the mask....
Also i used various settings, e.g. less iterations
anyway the results were much different when Shrink ran after Decon and Shrink produced a great result out of the box in that position.
Hence the question.

Workflow Clarification

Hi Ivo, quick question: what would be the suggested position for Shrink? Upon introduction of the module, you suggested usage after Decon but the button position (1.7.426) suggests to use Shrink as last stop before Denoise. However I found it was producing dark ring artifacts around stars at this po...

Re: 1.7.424 alpha with new Wipe module

Hi Ivo, here's the WIPE 426 retest: WIPE is now running without crash, but it does not seem to deliver the same result it did before with a 10% Synth Bias Edge Area. :think: Here`s what it does precisely (from a user perspective): phase 1: 0s - 30s: After the clicking to 10%, the activity wheel upda...

Re: 1.7.424 alpha with new Wipe module

I think the Wipe DO button has just been removed in 1.7 due to GPU support - if I am not mistaken, it should be a realtime module now and any change will just immediately restart rendering. Once you set all parameters as desired the clock simply starts ticking from scratch. So there should not be an...

Re: 1.7.424 alpha with new Wipe module

Hi Ivo, 1) I could open 1.7.425 on Mojave just to confirm. I do not see the same issue as user @elpajare, so it might not be a serious one. 2) I found the new Wipe working a bit unreliable. I had 3 crashes but wanted to confirm the process prone to issues first: a) run default Wipe settings to compl...

Re: 1.7.424 alpha with new Wipe module

Thanks Ivo, :thumbsup: keen on getting my hands on the new Wipe. I always had issues with flats overcorrecting slightly, however time I spent on taking reliable flats. ST had so many improvements over the last year, I think I´ll need the upcoming bad wheather period for redeveloping all good stacks ...

Re: Two requests (if that's allowed?)

:thumbsup: I would support the idea of a PreTweak button in AutoDev. This button is extremely useful and it would be a great feature in the frequently used modules. The big five missing the button currently would be AutoDev, Wipe, Contrast, Life and Color
