Thank you nikita.

This is just what i'm hoping for :)
Working with tensorflow outside of PI on OSX was possible but this module is very convenient.

Update....StarNet worked in a new PI "instance" but not within an existing project...I use a default project setup when starting PI for processing.

I can confirm I have the same problem. The StarNet++ module only works for me if I completely close out of PI and open a new instance, then open my image and finally StarNet++. If I try to use the module within my default project I get the "Checkpoint file not found" message. Hopefully this can be fixed in a future release because it is a very useful tool!

Thanks

Hi, I am currently using StarNet on a windows10 machine with Pixinsight but when I run an image processing, I don't see the progress ratio in the console window but only the file name loaded and the result of processing after the starnet processing ended. However if I use StarNet in a windows terminal command I see the progress ratio. Is it normal? That would be great to see the progress ratio under the pixinsight's console as sometimes it takes a long time to process (especially if the tile size is low, for example 32).

yes it is one of the "TODO" items - nikita left a note in the source code saying that it would be nice if StarNet did not lock up PI while it was running.

i took a look at it and having never written a PCL module, i'm not entirely sure how this would be accomplished. probably you would need to spawn the starnet work as a thread which presumably could then be interrupted by the console.

Hi everyone, I hope you can help me. I copied the files to the right directory but when I try to install it, find the plugin but I get this error message "Unsupported API version 162 (expected <= 160).: Module load error". Do you have any idea how I can solve it?
Please help me, thanks

you need to upgrade pi to at least version 1.8.6.

Hey guys,

I have this working fine in PI and on a PC.  I have been helping a person use Starnet for his PC after installing the redistributatble C++ library he gets (which is what I get- but no image output!):

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

C:\Users\Ron\Documents\Starnet\Starnet_Win>rgb_starnet++.exe rgb_test 5.tiff  .tif  rgbtest5_s.tif 64 Reading input image...  Done!
Bits per sample:  16

Done!
 
C:\Users\Ron\Documents\Starnet\StarNet_Win>pause
Press any key to continue . . .

Computer is a Hewlett Packard 64 bit, 8.00 GB RAM, i3-4130 CPU.

Anyone have any ideas?  This is not the most powerful machine, but it still seems to be executing the code.

looks like an extra argument here:

rgb_starnet++.exe rgb_test 5.tiff  .tif  rgbtest5_s.tif 64

should be

rgb_starnet++.exe rgb_test_5.tiff rgbtest5_s.tif 64

note that you can't have spaces in filenames in a command line without escaping them somehow, so you should rename the input file to not have spaces for ease...

Same way for me with Pix last update 1.8.8 and Win10 in new or existing project("Checkpoint file not found"). Before with Pix 1.8.7 StarNet work.
Thanks
