PixInsight 1.8.5 - Was the SHO-AIP script removed?
« on: 2017 August 04 06:04:34 »
Hello,

I upgraded to the latest version and can't find the SHO-AIP script. Has it been removed in the new version?

Thanks,
Alan

Apparently it's removed and no longer works with the update.  I've seen no further information on it

Are there any plans to revive it, or some other similar blending script?
Are there any good tutorials for creating the L channel using pixelmath? 

This is a big disappointment as I use this script in nearly every image...
Thanks for the info...

I got a copy of the script and tried it in 1.8.5 and it seems to work just fine. Not sure what the problem is supposed to be, but for now it seems fine.

Hi all,

These scripts have been removed from the official PixInsight 1.8.5 distribution. The reason is that they cause some problems with the graphical interface, including dialog organization issues, incorrect English translations and image windows left hidden after script execution. I tried to contact the authors of these scripts some time (maybe years) ago but received no response. These scripts are not actively maintained as far as I know.

If they are so important for you, we can reinsert them in the distribution through an optional update repository. Let me know if this is the case and we'll arrange it.

i think it would be a good thing if you put those depreciated scripts back in a separate repo. the top 2 questions i've seen on other forums in the last few days are 1) where is the extract L* button and 2) where is the SHO-AIP script? apparently a lot of people use that script!

I would also like to see the link back.  I used it on a regular basis.  My Narrowband SHO images are coming out of Color Combination and Pixel Math completely different than what I am used to seeing.  Not sure the cause for this.

Hi, I added it to the unofficial list of scripts. You can add PixInsight Resources repository and have it back.

Please, note that this repository has a lot of unofficial scripts that I have not tested yet in version 1.8.5 - You can always choose only the scripts you need.

Saludos, Alejandro.

Please put it back.  Also it looks like there might be a more recent version on the AIP site.  Might be worth reaching out.

Hi Alejandro, thanks for putting them in your repository.  I tried using it and the scripts downloaded but when I try to install them I get this error:
Anyone else encounter this?
Thanks
Carlos

I didn't want to say this explicitly in my initial answer, but here is one of the main reasons for having removed these scripts from the official 1.8.5 distribution.

Please put it back.  Also it looks like there might be a more recent version on the AIP site.  Might be worth reaching out.

It just does not work this way. I cannot maintain scripts being developed backwards to PixInsight. When that happens, the scripts in question cannot be part of the official distribution. In other words, if a software product is being developed on PixInsight, but outside PixInsight, then it has to live independently.

If Alejandro has made these scripts available again from PixInsight Resources, that's fine, but please understand that these scripts are unofficial from now on.

Yes I have seen that very thing. I went to each of those scripts and edited the file permissions and they now work again. Don't know why they came in with the necessary read permissions but its a simple fix

I too was very disappointed the AIP Script was removed and I always used it for my narrowband. I would not have updated to 1.8.5 if I would have known it was not available.

See Alejandro's post several posts up where he shows how to get the scripts if you want them.
