Apparently fairly common, but the first I have seen. It took 30 minutes for it to stop moving, then I was able to get a 9 slice stack.

seeing just one slice focussed content

If I understand the process, each slice is analyzed and the 'in-focus' content is stored. Is it possible to see this information for each slice without the final composite all-focussed picture?

Re: Memory problems

It is still happening. I will talk to people at my local club for advice. On a related note: I plan to add an external drive, but only have two USB ports. Do the USB cables for the camera and the Stackshot rail system have to be directly plugged into the computer, or can I use a powered multiport hu...

This was illuminated with long wave UV. The stack was 25 slices, shot at f4, 1 second exposure using a Nikon D7200 and a 105 mm Macro lens on a copy stand. The stack was processed using method C.

You can see why, once something is caught, it is so hard to escape!

Re: Memory problems

Sorry, yes. The hard drive ran out of space. I notice that about half of the used space was listed as 'Photos' and most of the rest as as 'Other'. This is on a Macbook.
If I turn if off and back on, the 'Other' component has disappeared.

Memory problems

Do other users have problems running out of memory? I use a laptop with 120GB RAM to run Helicon Remote but run out of storage after shooting just a few stacks.

Re: Some slices rotated

Interesting. It is locked on a copy stand, so it is hard to imagine what is going on in the middle of a stack that would make it think it has rotated.

Some slices rotated

In a series of stacks, some of the individual slices are showing up rotated 90 degrees and these are rejected by Focus when stacking. This varies from about 10% to 30% of the total. Can I manually reset them so they are recognized?

Re: Line drawing

I am preparing images of scorpions for scientific publication. In the past people used line drawings to provide key information. I would like to convert the picture to a line drawing and use it as an overlay. Ideally this would use a drawing with black lines on a transparent background.

Line drawing

In Method C, during the processing, a line drawing of the item appears which is finally replaced with the composite image. Is it possible to access the final version of the line drawing and save it?

Focus changing image appearance

Suddenly, when I use Focus, the images in the list on the right look normal, but in the Rendering window the picture is totally different. Everything was fine yesterday, and I don't remember changing any settings. I have turned Focus off and restarted, but the problem persists. I have attachedd a fi...
