Crash in FFTRegistration ?
« on: 2010 August 12 06:07:40 »
I'm trying to use the FFTRegistration script to a few moon images, 1360x1024 in 16bit fits.
The program stops at the very first image with memory access violation.
I tried to debug the script but the line reported says

image.translate( this.dx, this.dy );

and I'm not sure (with a quick look) what class 'image' is and where in the PCL documentation "translate" is, so I'm stacked.
Any help ?


-------- output from FFTRegistration -----------------------------

run -execute-mode=auto "C:/PCL/src/scripts/FFTRegistration.js"

Processing script file: C:/PCL/src/scripts/FFTRegistration.js

Hi John
You should look at the PJSR classes, not the PCL ones. They are described in the Scrip Editor.

BTW, at the PCL, within Image.h a translation is defined by the Shift function.

Thank you for the hints Carlos. Still I'll need a bit more info to debug this, or at least to provide something usefull in order somebody from the dev team to debug it. I can now point the class member but I can not go beyond it, why this specific data made it crash?. Is there a way to get a stack trace or something similar ?

I'm not familiar at all with debugging sessions, or PJSR programming, sorry. Anyway, I would check 2 memory related issues: RAM amount, and disk drive space (where PI stores its temporary files).

I do not think so  - 3 GB RAM, nothing else running, tons of free GBs on both hard disks, but I'll try it.
I think the easiest way is to resize my photos and try again.

But in general, if I want to make a "proper" bug report that may help pinpoint problems like this, is there a way to produce something like a stack trace ? (I have in my mind something like strace or gdb output - Linux people know what I mean)

I think the best option is to use the process module I wrote (only translations... rotations and scalations do not work well with the implemented algorithms, so I disabled them). Also it has a wavelets filtering that helps a lot with noisy images. I'll compile the 32bits versions ASAP.
