Nice shot! I hope your actual seeing is what meteoblue says so you can utilise the large aperture regularly.

Re: March 3 2021 images. Playing with color.

They're good results given you're at the start of your imaging journey James.

The only thing I would suggest at this stage is take a step back, just concentrate on monochrome images and use ImPPG for this. When you have sharpening, gamma and levels mastered I would concentrate on colour then.

Re: March 3 2021 Observations

Seems to me you have raised the black point to increase contrast - you can see how it 'eats into' the limb, however you've not dragged the white point in - Pedros plage jump out because the levels are clipped (or very close to clipping).

Mark, what are you using instead of PIPP to prepare your videos for AS! ?
Nothing. I just run them straight through As3.

Re: Half duration video recordings in FireCapture and SER files

Hi there.

Like Alexandra says, sounds like there is a limit set somewhere. No idea about PIPP, don't use it. I only ever capture in 8 bit avi, I see no benefit at all in capturing in 16 bit.
