Re: Style and LRGB Emulation in Bicolor

Stefan B Without delving into some deep, deep color theory ( this is a great start if your're interested ), it is important to understand that there are; 1. limitations to how color can be rendered 2. limitations to how color can be converted between color spaces (and their gamuts ) 3. limitations ...

Re: Startools crashing in MacOS Catalina?

I've attached the About This Mac screenshot which gives a summary of the capabilities of the MacBook. Processor and RAM should be more than capable, but the graphics are the standard Intel chipset graphics. Screenshot 2021-10-14 at 23.42.30.png If you need it, I can attach the crash report too.

Re: StarTools 1.8.516 public alpha/preview 6 now out

These Thursday night weekends always throw me off. :lol: :lol: Living in the future also means I get to go back to work sooner... Though I am curious why, other than it being a little slower system, I can do it on the laptop but not the desktop. Both systems have Windows 10 managing the pagefile au...

Re: Huge green bias

Hi Tryfon, I also replied via email; A big green bias is normal for many DSLRs (it is a good sign, and usually means that the stacker is not interfering with the coloring any more). That green bias, however, should/will be removed once you use the Wipe module. You listed it in your workflow, but eve...

Re: Crazy idea or not HOO approaches Soul neb

I think you're on to winner! To me that sounds like a fantastic way of getting deep detail from Ha ("monochrome" DLSR means the Bayer Matrix was removed, correct?). You are then adding the coloring of the L-Enhance, which shows you where H-Beta/O-III exists alongside Ha. Of course this method cannot...

Re: StarTools 1.8.516 public alpha/preview 6 now out

I pushed it again (on the laptop, I don't think I can crash the desktop) with some monitors running, and didn't really see anything being stressed out when I crashed it. Hard memory is 32GB, and maybe usage got up to somewhere around 9 when I was in SVD? The virtual memory / page file thingy was al...

Re: Resuming treatment

Hi Francis, Welcome to the forums! StarTools indeed does not let you save the full Tracking state. The reasons for that is one of practicality; the Tracking data mining files can become huge during processing. Saving multiple copies will quickly fill up your disk. Fortunately, this is not too much o...

Many thanks for the patient support, Ivo!

Re: Wipe needs Dark Anomaly bump; why?

Cold pixels are indeed typically rather well ignored/repaired by modules, as long as they are single pixel in size and do not "bleed" into neighbouring pixels (making them clumps/blobs, streaks, etc. which starts becoming artificial detail).
