I'm running the demo version of Helicon with the intention of purchasing the full version. Currently I'm using Photoshop for stacking and it yields pretty good results. Only problem is, it takes too long! Anyhow, I love the simplicity of Helicon and the speed in which it blends stacks. My only Major issue is that on some of my stacks, I'm getting some pretty ugly artifacting. Problem is, I don't have the problem with Photoshop. By the way, I have fiddled with the preferences and sliders and have attempted to use all three rendering methods.. I get the same result every time. I am inserting an image that shows the problem.
