oaCapture Camera settings for "Force Input Frame Format"

Post by Fivel » Fri May 17, 2019 3:10 pm

Hello again.
I use oaCapture (now that it's issues are fixed) but need advice on these settings.
My main imager is the ZWOasi1600mc-c.
In the oaCapture Camera screen there is the option as stated in the subject line.
That option has over a dozen capture modes. Do I need this option checked?
I am imaging DSOs in 16 bit RAW color (no filters), and saving in either tiff or fits. I need to be able to post process the images in color.
Here are a few to set RAW16 bit mode (I hope).
Which ones of the following do you recommend I use (if at all)?
GRBG 12/16 LE (or BE)
GRBG 14/16 LE or BE
I do set the Demosaic to GRBG and either Bilinear or VNG for the algorithm.
Please advise.

Hi
I think you can choose GRBG 12/16 LE (or BE).

Thank you Katherine.
I also found out that the "Force Input Frame Format, IAW the user manual, is not needed unless to override what the fits info has (if say it is incorrect).

I think you can try this two option and compare their difference.
