NullPointerException in Comet Registration
today I tried to do comet processing using APP version 2.0.0 beta 13 and got a java.lang.NullPointerException while pointing the comet during the registration process:
It happened twice around or perhaps even at the same image while clicking at the comet. I could not see which image it was. I had the image viewer full screen (1280 x 1048). Then I repeated the registration another time with the image viewer i partial view (approximately 800 x 600px) and the process continued happily.
Not sure if the above makes sense and is of some use, happy to do some further testing if needed.
The past few days I have been processing several cometary recordings and found that, even at reduced window size, the above error pops up every now and then. In the end I get everything processed, but it takes a lot more time as a result of it, while at times it is hard or even impossible to get through the registration process.
Last update: I now have a set of 197 comet-subs that constantly fails to register using APP 2.0.0 beta 13, each time at a different sub, but mostly either at the first (sub #1) or the second occasion (sub #10), so I switched back to APP 1.083 and successfully stacked the data there.
I can provide access to my processing computer to Mabula if that is helpful (we did that before).
Ok, very interesting. Mabula is going to work on the comet feature, so would you mind uploading a subset of comet lights and calibration files to our server?
thanks for your response, I have uploaded 20 lights to InFINNity-Deck-cometRegisterFailure and four masters in a subfolder of that.
Please let me know if you need more lights.
Thanks Nicolas, I've informed Mabula.
I will have a proper look at what is happening here 😉
Hi Nicolàs @infinnity-deck,
I am working on the comet processing at the moment and I was looking at your issue. With 2.0.0-beta17 I can not reproduce your issue whatever I try with selecting the comet nucleus.
Can you test with beta17 on your data and let me know if this issue still occurs or not?
thanks for your new beta-version! Just now I tested it successfully on that dataset, no more nullpointer exceptions, so all is good.
Thank you @infinnity-deck for your confirmation!
The next release 2.0.0-beta18 will have many improvements for comet processing, we are close to releasing it as well 😉
