It works great. Thank you very muchmmisiura1 said:Hi, everyone!
For I while now (more than a year) I have been working on a new process for star removal. It is a specially trained neural network that is supposed to remove all the stars in one simple step and does not require any parameters to tune. It just works (or sometimes it does not ).
Anyway, I released it a while ago and it was shown to work pretty well for most users. I was getting a lot of good feedback and also was asked a lot for a PI module version of the program.
So here is the link to download the new module: https://sourceforge.net/projects/starnet/files/PixInsight_module/
I consider it to be a beta release, so there might be some bugs. Also, one downside for now is that PI freezes and does not reply while the code is running. So keep that in mind and try on a small image at first.
Please read README.txt file for all the instructions and caveats. You can find some more information, discussion and examples of images if you search 'StarNet' on AB or in my releases on AB:
Let me know how it works for you! Also, it would be nice if someone could give me some idea on how to make PI not to freeze while the code is running!
So no ideas here? Apparently no one has gotten the StarNet++ PI module to work on Linux to help me out? Great. All I can do is follow the instructions, which ain't that difficult. PI crashes before I can even attempt to scan the module in, so I'm at a loss here.sparkyht said:Tried loading this module for the first time using 1.8.8-3 Linux, searching for module fails before I can even select it. Per the instructions, after going to Process>Modules>Install Modules, clicking on 'Search' causes PI to instantly crash and exit. Files are in /opt/PixInsight/bin as per instructions. Is this a PI Linux issue or a StarNet/++ issue?
Thanks for the info....I just was corresponding with another member and he said the same thing. I'm just going to play around with it and see what comes out...sure I'll have some more questions!!pfile said:the command line versions only work on 16-bit tiff files. however, the pixinsight module can run on any view that you have open on the desktop, no matter the bit depth.
although starnet only works on stretched images, astroedo figured out how to run it on linear images by using STF to figure out an MTF curve to temporarily stretch the image in a way that can be undone.
