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...

Re: Nikon 7200 problem

Please reproduce the problem and submit a bug report (menu -> Help -> Report a bug). By the way, did you test 5300 and 7200 it with the same lens or different ones? Did you make sure all the focus mode settings and hardware swicthes are set to AF (or AF-S if there's more than one AF option)? Okay S...

Nikon 7200 problem

After upgrading from a Nikon D5300 to a 7200 I cannot get the focussing arrows to work. If I switch back to the 5300, all is fine. The camera settings are the same on both.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: 6.3 save to DNG not working on Mac

I only just got around to v6 for my Mac, and notice there is no option to save as a Photoshop file. Is this going to be addressed, or will the eventual fix for Nikon Raw/DNG be the solution?

Thanks

I do manual shots on a microscope, since I cannot drive the focussing. The stacks come out fine, be sure to make each step small enough that the focussed areas overlap.

Suddenly stopped focussing

I am using a Nikon D5300 105mm Macro lens connected to a MacBook Pro. Two days ago everything was working fine. Since then no new software or hardware has been added and the physical connections are unchanged. This morning, when I try a Focus stack, I get the following problem. I can use the focussi...

Rainbow scarab

I found this outside the kitchen yesterday. I had no idea such beetles even lived in Connecticut

Edit: I do not seem to be able to show the image. I go to Upload Attachment, Choose then Add the file, but nothing shows up.

Manual focussing

I am using a Nikon D5300, which loses all focussing and aperture control without a lens. I have used the 'show focussed' tool to manually change focus and create stacks with some success, though I am never certain if I have managed to get every layer included
