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?

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.

**EDIT** Looking further into this, it appears the Xeon X5675 does not support AVX instructions. libtensorflow is compiled for AVX, so that's likely the cause of the crash right there. Darn. :(

I finally got Starnet++ to work in Pixinsight on my iMac running Catalina...only took about 6 hours of manipulating files and reading Forum posts!!  Am I correct that Starnet will ONLY work on 16bit unassigned TIFF files?
Thanks!

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.
