I'm new to using APP and have a problem trying to create a bad pixel map using darks and flats. The video tutorials that I've watched show a simple process using earlier versions of the program, but my version is 1.082 and doesn't have the options under the calibrate tab shown in the videos. I would greatly appreciate a simple step by step guide to creating a BPM using the latest version of APP
It is as simple as loading your darks, flats and either dark flats or bias in tab 1 and then going to tab 2 and hitting the Create Masters And (Re)Assign To Lights button. The BPM then automatically gets created.
Thanks for the quick reply Wouter. I assume that pressing the re-assign to lights button means that I need to load lights as well as darks, flats and biases?
Roy, sorry for not being complete in my original answer. No, it is not necessary to load lights as well.
Now I've successfully created a BPM I'm at a loss to understand my initial confusion.
