Re: Mask Flash color/flash config option please. migraines

Sorry for the long delay in responding.

Yes, that helps considerably, thank you. By the way, it's a combination of the bright lime green coloration and flashing that causes the affect.

Is there a configuration file that determines the background color used for the mask?

regards,

Andrew

Re: Is StarTools automatically processing an image upon open

Hi Alan, Much depends on the image format and the image characteristics. StarTools may free up unused dynamic range by normalising the data if it can do so by removing a global bias. This may indeed result in increased contrast. To reintroduce the bias, the Develop module can be used to add a 'Sky ...

Wipe after color fails

In general, I'm seeing many instances where applying a wipe results in failure. The one way that I can consistently force is by taking an image, (while tracking still engaged), and using the color tool on it. Afterwards Wipe routinely fails, generating output that looks more like an inverted or XORe...

Re: StarTools parameterization and project (session) save

Presuming this is still an idea being developed... it might be easiest just to log the sequence of actions to a textfile.

A simple text log would require very little in the way of supporting code, and would provide the necessary sequencing for future efforts.

Home-in is diverging.

Hi, While processing an image of the Bubble Nebula today, I noticed that when performing a Development task, the home-in function min/max is becoming divergent near the end point. Normally, from the help entry description, I expect to see the home-in function converge on a single point. In this case...

Mask Flash color/flash config option please. migraines

Hi, I am one of those unfortunate people you might have read about who has a negative physiological response to bright, high contrast color flashes. Repeatedly being subjected to them (as is the case when processing with Star Tools) results in migraines (especially with the high-visibility, lime-gre...
