A Simple processing run with RegiStax 6
is a very simple processing run for those people that never have used
RegiStax and for those that need to get accustomed to the new way
things are done in RegiStax 6.
Ive started by pressing the SELECT button, that opened a windows
dialog. The dialog was first set to show AVI files (fileformats). After
changing this I could choose an AVIfile to process. The screen below
shows the 1st frame of that AVI-file.
Next step is to set some alignpoints, Ive
changed the minimum distance setting for alignpoints from 20 to 30 and
left all other settings as they were and pressed "SET ALIGNPOINTS"
which was marked with a green line below it. After SET ALIGNPOINTS was
pressed the screen changed (see below) and showed a total of 131
alignpoints well spread over the image. The default settings for
Alignment were kept and I then pressed the next button which now has a
green line below "ALIGN"
Before pressing ALIGN I also had set the "SHOW
ALIGNDATA" control to be able to inspect the results of Alignment in
more detail. The image below shows the resulting screen. For each
Alignpoint a yellow patch shows the movements (5x enlarged) as
estimated for each frame. The red circles show if the movements are
rather uniform (small circle) or strongly deviating (larger circles).
When alignpoints deviate strongly you might reconsider using them. For
the example below the results looked OK.
After inspecting the overall Alignment
information I decided to reduce the number of frames I would use to
stack. I moved the slider to a new position. When Show AlignData is
active you will see for each alignpoint on each frame how the movement
is compared to the original frame used at the start of alignment. In
the image below the area on the left-top was moving away from the
centre and rightside of the image. This is a clear sign of changing
seeing-conditions during the recording. I then selected the best frame
Limit method (left below) and pressed the LIMIT button.
After pressing LIMIT RegiStax advanced to the
stacking page. The image below shows the default settings at that page.
I did not change any of them and pressed the control with the green
line under it "STACK"
This image shows the result of stacking 50 frames. Next I moved to the wavelet stage by clicking on the Wavelet-tab.
After arrival on the waveletpage I used the
wavelet-sliders/filters (gaussian) to enhance the image. The result can
be seen below.
