IE My computers run unprotected with no background virus app or other unexpected jobs hogging resources. So ...

  • Not so fast.. 6 or 7 times is plenty

     20 times speed - just skips too much stuff.  For 'the cloud shoot' video 6 or 7 times speed increase is plenty. Set it to start at every 1/2 second mark and play for 1/12 second. Then "skip and play" again and again.

  • Fast Forward uncloaks slow moving artifacts

     In testing out the Fast forward option I viewed the cloaked object. It is much easier to see the artifacts in FF Dang I'm forgetful I implemented the FF option way back on 08Feb2012 (page 48). The latest version has minor enhancements.  I can now set the offset for the start. Ie if I skip 2 seconds and play .08 of a second I may ...

  • Time Lapse Video - another super option

    [quote user="Medezark"] Why not just use an IR or motion sensitive trigger on the camera?    [/quote]  My goal is to find game trails by digiscoping hillsides from a distance with a infra red spotting scope.

  • Fast forward for even more knowledge

     You know by now that I don't like LARGE video files. Well that has changed. My plan is to get some night vision video. Maybe 8 or 10 hours long. Then I'll code up the playback to start at 3 seconds and play for 1/10 then at 6 seconds play for another 1/10 over and over in the control file. In a fraction of the time I can see the ...
