AutoStakkert; align multisession images

Post by Rudi »

Can someone answer this question?
When stacking multiple videoes from the same area, eg. a protuburence, is it possible to make AutoStakkert alige all output images, such that they all overlap?

Not that I know of.
Perhaps using "expand" instead of "crop" might help produce more easily stackable frames.

IMPPG (free - thanks Filip!) has an "Align Image Sequence" option. Not tried it yet, but sounds like what you're after.

There are some animation gurus here who can give you more info, but I'd certainly give anything free like IMPPG a shot.

Cheers, Ed.

Thanks a lot Ed. IMPPG was just what I was looking for. Never heard of that program before. The image align works really good!
Again, thanks a lot!!!

You've not heard of IMPPG? :shock:
Glad to have introduced you to each other - IMPPG is a brilliant and fast box of tricks.

GIMP is another free software which can create animated GIFs from aligned images...

Well, actually, yesterday evening, I read about IMPPG in the book “Solar Observing” I bought a month back 😳
