SHG (spectroheliography) software release version 4.1

Post by thesmiths »

The Windows executable file can be found here: https://github.com/thelondonsmiths/Sole ... .1_Windows

The Python source code files can be found here: https://github.com/thelondonsmiths/Sole ... 4.1_Python

The Windows executable will run on both Windows 10 and 11. It does not need Python to be installed on the computer. It should run the same as the Python source code but without the ability to make any changes to the code. For most people, this Windows executable version will be more convenient to use.

Compared to v4.0, this version has the following new features:
  • The ability to save the output to a specified folder. In this way, output files can be segregated from input video files.
  • "Folder input mode", whereby the user can chose to process all the files in a designated folder. The traditional way of processing by choosing individual files is now called "File input mode".
  • "Continuous detect" or "live view" mode. The input folder is monitored for the arrival of a new SER or AVI file, at which point the new file is processed and a 600x600 pixel preview of the CLAHE image is displayed. The state of the "Continuous detect mode" checkbox is remembered.
  • An "Open output folder" button has been added. If an output folder is specified, the button will open this folder. If no output folder is specified, it will open the input folder (either file input or folder input, depending on the tab selected).
Below is an example of the new user interface and a demonstration of the "continuous detect mode" using FireCapture for acquisition and EQMOD for scanning. (The screenshot is of my laptop -- the resolution of the screen will affect how the layout of "continuous mode" will look.)

We found a small error in the code after we uploaded it so we replaced v4.1 with v4.1.2. This can be found in the same location. So make sure you have this very slightly updated version.
