.AVI Files from ZWO ASI224MC are Blank in Astroart7

Post by TKnightKY » 19 Oct 2020, 00:20

I acquired Mars .avi images using FireCapture and a ZWO ASI224MC camera. When I try to open the .avi file is Astroart it is blank. What am I doing wrong.

Verify that you are using Astroart 7 Service Pack 4 or newer, 32 bit version, usually FireCapture AVI can be opened. Maybe for some reason that AVI cannot be decoded, sometimes from the 64 bit version, nowadays the AVI file format can be just a container for any other file format.
For stacking videos of planets you may also use a specialized software, for example Autostakkert or Registax.

I was using the 64bit version. It opens fine in the 32bit version. I normally use AutoStakkert for processing avi files but I just wanted to see how Astroart processed the images. Thanks for your help.
