Congratulations. You processing video was interesting - although there were a number of things I didn't understand !

Great Stuff... I must say you spend a LOT more time w/ blink, cosmetic correction, and linear feature fit / sub than I do... wonder if that might be one of the reasons mine dont' turn out as well as yours... clearly though, putting effort in on the early stages of a "processing chain" can greatly reduce issues later on in the chain... so great stuff... maybe I'll be less lazy from now on...

Yes, I usually spend a bit of time looking at my data figuring out issues, filtering very bad subs and checking for hot pixels and artefacts as much as possible. In this project, I only had 5 subs to integrate so any single issue on a single frame was affecting the integrated version. In such a critical situation, fixing the master light was particularly important since there were a lot of visible sparse defects.
