Loading your images into RegiStax
RegiStax has 3 ways to
load images, the selectbutton, the Most Recently Used (MRU) menu or
using drag & drop functionality.
Registax 6 supports the following formats:
- RFL (RegiStax Framelist)
NOTE: the support for
RAW DSLR images is not available in the initial release of RegiStax 6.
the selectbutton is pressed you can choose the file(s) you want to use
using a windows dialog. In the example below we have choosen to use an
AVI file. After selecting the filetype the dialogwindow will show the
available files. If you select a file then a preview of the file will
be shown and - depending on the fileformat - some additional
information about the framesize (X*Y pixels), the number of frames. If
you double-click the file will be loaded into RegiStax. For filetypes
with multiple frames in one file (AVI, SER) you only need to choose one
file. For filetypes with single frames in a file (BMP, JPG, PNG, FIT,
TIF) you will need to select a group of files with this dialog.
single-file types RegiStax allows you (after loading the files) to save
the names of a group of files as a RegiStax framelist (RFL) making
usage after that a lot simpler. Saving as
a framelist is done by checkmarking the "show framelist"checkbox and
then using the "SAVE" button from the framelist-toolwindow. A RegiStax
RFL file can then be saved and you can select such files in the same
fashion as you would select an AVI file or other multi-frame format
the MRU menu-item is selected the last 10 used files will be shown.
Single-frame fileformats will only be shown in the menu if you
have loaded a single-file to be processed (no alignment). In
example below the last used file is Frames300.avi
(see above) a set of single-frame files as a RegiStax Framelist (RFL)
the RFL -name will be recorded in the MRU-list.
Drag and Drop
is mainly used to drop large groups of single-frame filetypes onto
RegiStax. Open RegiStax, then open the Windows explorer, select the
files you want to use with the windows explorer and
the selection onto the RegiStax window. You can do this multiple times.
