[Solved] V 1.078 RGB Combine
I'm afraid RGB combine no longer extracts the correct filter designation from the filename. It seems to be limited to three letters. Any more than this it truncates. EG Blue becomes lue, Green becomes een, Luminance becomes nce
Hi John @johnt,
APP does not extract the filtername from the filename, but rather from the fits metadata and I have just checked, that does work properly.
The channel description is only for your reference and you should adjust it, so you know what channel this is. The description is not used to determine what filter assignment should be used.
Due to another bug that had to be solved relating to metadata APP 1.078 will not pick up the filter from the metadata on integrations created with 1.077 or before, so you just need to assing the right filter yourself on older integrations. If you create an integration in 1.078, all will work okay in this regard.
Thanks Mabula. I'd tested it with an integration from V1.077. I'll try doing it all from scratch.
