Re: Using Stackshot

Since you can control everything using Remote, there is no need for calculations. Remote will read all your camera settings, lens, speed, f stop and ISO. Once you set the start and end points on screen the program determines how many shots are needed (you can override this if you wish). Press the St...

Re: render error 5

bsarver

Are you working on a copy stand? I had a similar problem because, when it is pointing straight down, the camera cannot decide if it is in portrait or landscape mode. I solved it by tilting the entire stand a few degrees.

Re: D500

The latest download recognizes it, and seems to work so far.

D500

When do you expect to have support for the Nikon D500?

Re: Dust map files

I am still not sure what I am doing wrong. Stacks created with and without a Dust Map look identical. The Dust map is shot under the same conditions as the stack.

Re: Question for Mac users

No real change, maybe 10% faster. Is this problem unique to me, or is it a more general Mac problem?

Question for Mac users

I capture my stacks on an external drive connected to my MacBook Air, and then take the drive home to process the files using Focus on my iMac. Sometimes I will process files at work, on the MacBook, and find that both machines take exactly the same time, even though the iMac should be 3-5 times fas...

Aperture stuck at zero

I am connected to my Nikon D7200 and suddenly the Aperture control is grayed out and stuck at zero. Everything was working until a few minutes ago, and no changes have been made to the system. Helicon remote 3.6.5

Batch processing

I am using Focus to batch handle about 100 stacks. It works fine, but it would be nicer if there was a simple counter letting me know how far it has got. While there are little icons at the bottom, scrolling through them doesn't really give much information.

Re: Forcing new folder

I see. Didn't think the remote shutter release from Stackshot would work while USB remote control is active. Until we add support for multiple stepper devices so that everything could be done from Remote, the only thing I can think of is to add pause between stacks in Stackshot settings (if at all ...
