Have a few years worth of master flats, darks and bias files from DSS (Deep Sky Stacker). I am in the process of transitioning from DSS to APP and would like to re-run APP on my older data. In some cases to free up disk space I deleted the original calibration subs. Is it OK to use the calibration masters from DSS for APP?

thanks for your time and attention to this matter - Randy

Hi Randy, sorry but using calibration masters from other applications will not work well with APP. I am afraid that you will need to redo all the work there.

Thanks Wouter, understood. It would be a nice feature if possible in the future... I will have to keep all the calibration data going forward.

Kind regards,
Randy

Randy, it is very difficult if not impossible to do that. All applications use their own way of storing the calibration data and the data formats usually are closed. On top of that, several algorithms exist for creating the calibration masters and APP may disagree with the algorithm used or wouldn’t know how to apply the calibrated data if the used algorithm is closed as well.
