Focus stacking broken ???

Unread postby rjalex » 05.11.2010 17:58

Dear forum,
I DL the trial version (still have 27 days) of Helicon 5.1.19 for Win XP and ran a few times both the stacking demo with the small JPGs of moth eggs on a leaf and with the great Remote utility driving my 7D shooting RAW.

Everything worked great for 2 days. This morning I wanted to show a friend and ran the demo and instead of gradually filling the bottom rectangle with the infocus pixels it just showed a uniformly colour rectangle for every shot and at the end produced a merged JPG which is totally BLACK ! :(

I did not install anything. Tried to "Reset setting", rebooted the machine but nothing helped. Both the demo JPGS and my RAW stacks get composited into a large BLACK jpg ! :(

Anything I can try please ? The remote shoots the stack just perfectly and on the filesystem I have the source RAW files which are absolutely normal.

Thank you for any help

PS I wanted to run a full demo with screenshots and maybe write an article for a photo magazine here in Italy. I hope it's ok with you of course giving all credits and directing to your website.

Have you tried to delete Helicon Focus folder and reinstall the program?

Please download and reinstall the latest release of Helicon Focus:
