Re: temp files

Jim, I've had the exact same issue...LR exporting layers as Tiffs via LR's direct export to Helicon. My recently installed C:250GB Solid State Drive (Samsung high-end version) that originally started (2-3 months previous) with 48GB of total program files commonly used... had "exploded" to around 200...

"Help" function built into Helicon Focus

"Reading" the Help section of virtually any software or hardware is seldom done (and I'm as guilty as anyone else) - skim over and then dive in! But users aren't entirely the blame - descriptive text within most help sections or user manuals often isn't very helpful, leaves much to be desired (and t...

Moving camera vs lens focus change

Does anyone have a definitive answer on multi-focus layer captures: moving the physical camera to gain layer-depth of focus . . . versus the stationary camera position and changing the lens-focus? I have no desire to "reinvent the wheel" if others have already discovered the answer. I have always us...

HF "temp-Tiff" files accumulation size

"Temp-Tiff" files created when Exporting files from LightRoom 4.3 direct to Helicon Focus... works well, but the exported Tiff files end up saved permanently in the "Temp" directory - files that can't be cleared/cleaned out by normal means of "deleting all 'temp' files" through the Windows temp-dele...

Re: LightRoom direct to HF using preset - Method B defect

Retesting - shooting Jpegs instead of raw image files: Helicon's "Method B" layering process produces background aberrations in out of focus areas (mottle) - that does NOT appear under Method A, nor Method C. Consistent whether exporting direct to HF from LightRoom; or if first exporting Jpegs from ...

LightRoom direct to HF using preset - Method B defect

When moving a series of stacked finished images in Lightroom to Helicon Focus using HF's preset "Helicon Focus"... whenever "Method B" is selected to layer-process images in HF the out of focus background displays substantial irregularities and odd patterns. And it is consistent. The newest version ...

Re: latest HF update 5.11 - Remote still does NOT work

Likewise, a search for the "remote_control.log" file does not exist under the file-tree location suggested by Stas (Windows Ultimate Vista)
Yet, the program file Remote.exe is listed as active and loaded (along with Helicon Focus), but Remote does not open.
