Is it possible to save and APP "session"
Hi - is it possible to save the "meta data" of an APP session or do I have to start from step 1 (load files) every time I want to do another integration on the same source data? Or is this idea / concept nonsense?
My workflow so far is like in all tutorials: load lights/darks/flats/etc... check off some boxes here and ther on tabs 1 through 6, perhaps run them one by one or click on integrate right away, then do some conditioning in the tools section with LP removal, star color correction etc. In the end I have 1 to 2 GB of "intermediate" FITS files, and if I so desire, even a stretched, more saturated TIFF. But no other information. If I close APP I can't load the list of lights/darks/etc. back, all the sliders and checkboxes on the tabs are reset. Get my point? I don't mind deleting the intermediate files and have my PC redo the integration, if I only didn't have to load all the image frames back, redo all the settings, etc...
Or am I missing a point here? LOL... could very well be... but I'd somehow like to get a way how I could save a snapshot of my work just as if I had kept APP open and running... for a later time to return and try out some things differently.
@drfritz142 Hi Andreas, this is not possible yet but will be with APP 2.0.0. Currently beta2 of this version has been released and that doesn't have this capability. Stay tuned!
@wvreeven Hi and thanks for the info. I will stay tuned :). Let me know if you're looking for more beta testers.... just now downloading that release. Clear skies!
@drfritz142 Hi Andreas, thanks for offering to help with beta testing. All beta versions will be made publicly available so anyone using them can consider themselves to be a beta tester. Please report anything you find here and we will make sure to follow up on it.
