New Script: GAME - interactive graphical Editor
« on: 2017 November 22 00:28:08 »
Hi,

New script by Hartmut Bornemann - GAME.

GAME is an interactive graphical Editor for the creation of elliptical shapes used for masking galaxies.
The mask can handle various ellipsoids. The active window serves as the graphics base.
An ellipsoid is defined by 5 anker points. The central point makes the move, while the peripheral points help rotate and scale the object.

Best regards!

Herbert, Austria

Hartmut and Herbert, This script is a 'GAME changer!' Congrats and danke! I am going to feature this in the second edition of Inside PixInsight and in a tutorial. It brings to life the previous PixelMath contributions of Herr Wechselberger. Well done!

Hi Warren,

thanks for looking and your motivating comment. As you may believe, there are much more lines (of code) in the pipeline and Herbert is hosting them on his beautiful site. My latest one performs NB-integration in a new way. The magic behind ist a method of continuum subtraction. As soon as I see enough approval from the field, this script can be published here.

Regards

Hartmut

I had a small problem with installing the scripts via the update mechanism on Linux. Installation failed after unpacking the zip file and it seems the problem is that the directories in the zip file somehow end up missing x-flag so they aren't accessible on Linux (and presumably Mac too, haven't tried yet). Windows doesn't care about these so the installation succeeded fine on my main processing machine and on the imaging Linux I could manually copy the files and they worked.

OK, I must accept, that my repository is not a big help for Linux- and iOS users. Sorry.
The .zip content file works well with Win 7 & 10 but can not open under those exotic operating systems (my version and sorry again). So, either you folks change the OS (ha, ha) or I need a doable solution for the creation of that file. I'm using .net with compression class.

Thanks. Hartmut

there must be a way to set the executable bit on the files in the archive? unless this is just a completely foreign concept on windows? on unix-like operating systems a directory has to be readable to cd into it and executable so that you can read the files in the directory...

As I'm a rabid minimalist by nature, I wouldn't mind being able to download only the .js file(s) of scripts I was interested in.

Hartmut, when you're happy w/ the NB script, consider contacting me privately. I would like to add it as well.

From a recent post I saw, it's not looking good that Philippe and Laurent's AIP scripts will be updated soon. They are essentially good, and popular- wish one of the coders would get involved with polishing them.

Again, congrats Hartmut! I understand that Adam Block helped out with the expression. Well done Adam!
Best always, Warren

Hi Warren!

Ok, I will update the website with the scripts, so that the scripts can also be downloaded separately.

Best regards!
