Firecapture dummy cam doesn’t show sun

Post by DavidP »

Question. When I enter the dummy cam mode in Firecapture and click on the sun, I do not get any kind of image to work with. I am using the latest version of the program. Anybody else experienced this, or have any ideas?

Wel you can if you have an avi recording of the sun.

In the firecapture install folder navigate to testImages folder
Create a folder called sun
copy the avi file in that folder named as sun.avi

That should do the trick
