Harry's video tutorials
« on: 2009 May 17 14:09:44 »
Hi all

I have made some tutorial videos aimed at beginners! :D
I have felt that newbie's are sometimes put off by the supposed complexity of pixinsight , so I have made them as simple as I can ;) and relatively short, kind of bitesize.

I am sure the experts among you may do things differently and if you find any mayor problems with these let me know  ( I can take it  :P)
but as I said complex and full of tricks they are not meant to be , these can be learnt later if desired.

I am sorry for the voice but I was born with it :D

The video capture software I use does not capture everything correctly  ,mainely being that it does not pick up cursor changes correctly I hope this does not
spoil your viewing pleasure to much.

Regards Harry

Hi Fellow Pixies

I have found that my old website had become a bit of a mare to maintain as I did not have a clue what I was doing when I wrote it  :yell:

So I Have updated it after learning a bit of Dreamweaver ( If you write websites for a living you must be mad  ;D) , hopefully its a bit tidier now  8)

This Means unfortunately that a lot of old links do not work now  :'(  sorry about this , but does mean I can add more stuff more easily  :D

So Pixinsight home is now http://harrysastroshed.com/pixinsight/pixinsight%20video%20html/Pixinsighthome.html   , bit long I know I will see what I can do about that

Please let me know if anything has broke , but after 6 weeks off work I have gone web blind

Kind Regards

Harry  ( may 2014 )

Hi Houghy

Thanks for the support

If they are of help to people I was going to do a few more

Like
1) HDR wavlets
2) Colour correction
3) Noise reduction
4) Masked colour saturation stretch
5) Dynamic alignment and L rgb combination

Or is there something else people struggle with  ( I am talking newbie's here so do not ask for Atrouswavlet transform !!!!!!!!! >:D)

Regards Harry

Do the new color correction tools.
I find the color calibration dialogue a bit complex.
All are helpful

Thanks Harry

It's an excellent idea. I'm still searching for process for my exposures and I'll be glad to see some 'PixInsight for Dummies'.
