ASI290MC Firecapture Horizontal Lines

Post by M44DSW » Tue Mar 06, 2018 12:25 pm


I now have Firecapture v2.6, MacOS v10.13.3, ASI290MC connected via USB3 to my MacBook Pro. When recording video I am seeing horizontal lines appear in many of the frames, so much so that I have to throw away 95% of the frames. I have attached 2 examples. Any ideas why this is happening?

Many Thanks
