Add ability to read .xisf files
I find it sometimes beneficial to move project files back and forth between APP and PixInsight. In order to do this I must save files to .tiff or .fits. It would be helpful if APP could read and write PixInsight's .xisf files.
Yes that may be handy, but our fits format is more standard in general and compatible with more programs. It's not that xifs stores more data for instance.
@vincent-mod One potential advantage of .XISF for me is NINA now can write compressed .XISF saving about 1/2 the space. I take short exposures so that is nice. Alternatively, I wish .FITS had a fast basic lossless compression option.
even in Kstars/Indi it is now possible to save in XISF. Perhaps it would be usefull for the guys with full frame cameras to use the XISF due to less file size...
The file compression is a good argument, only thing I can say for now is that support may be added but it's not a priority for us at the moment.
