Re: Folder Monitor - Any way to delay processing?

The file creation time is being used. Maybe your software is setting file time to the shot taken time from EXIF or something like that? Check the creation times in the file attributes. Thanks. Based on your helpful reply I checked my camera's clock and it was one hour behind my Windows PC. When I s...

Re: Folder Monitor - Any way to delay processing?

You just have to specify a longer time threshold so that it doesn't decide prematurely that the stack is complete. That doesn't work. The "Time between shots to split into stacks (seconds)" setting in the Folder Monitor dialog is only evaluated for the files that Helicon can already see. ...

Re: Folder Monitor - Any way to delay processing?

Why do you want to wait? The strength of the folder monitor is that it processes the files as they appear and the result is ready almost immediately after the last file has been downloaded, rather than having to wait for however much time it takes to process the whole stack. Because if you don't wa...

I'm trying to use the Folder Monitor for a folder that my tethered camera is uploading focus stacked images into. The problem is the monitor starts processing the first file(s) it sees immediately. This doesn't give any shooting application enough time to deposit all the files of the stack into the ...

Tooltip shows wrong stack filename

In the render pane you can hover over a portion of an image to see which image filename of the stack was used to render that portion. The filename shown in the hover never matches though - if I press F9 to load the file for that portion of the render it's always a different filename than what was de...

Idea for using AF to set starting and ending focus

Helicon Remote currently lets you engage the camera's AF system to set either the near or far focus point. You then have to use Helicon Remote's AF buttons to set the other end of the focus. This is because the camera remote API's generally only support relative focus movements, and don't report the...
