The Virtual Folder Monitor Camera adds another way to get images into SharpCap – it can read existing or newly added image files from a directory opening up new ways to use SharpCap. As a couple of examples:
· You have a camera that isn’t supported by SharpCap, even using a DirectShow or ASCOM driver, but you have an application that will capture frames from that camera and save them to a folder. You can use the folder monitor virtual camera to load each new frame saved to the folder into SharpCap, allowing you to access SharpCap tools like focus measurements, live stacking, etc.
· You have a series of image frames of a target captured with either SharpCap or another capture application. You can use the folder monitor virtual camera to live stack these frames in SharpCap (or repeat the live stacking with different parameters if these were frames originally saved in SharpCap).
まずは、この Folder Monitor Camera が動くか確認です。 どうも Folder Minotor Camera は若干動作が不安定、というかクセがあるようです。フォーラムにも「動かない」というQAがあり、それに対する回答に下記のようにすれば動くと書いてあります。
1) Create an empty folder 2) Choose folder monitor cameras, browse to the new empty folder and choose ‘All in folder’ 3) Enable live stacking (reset if already enabled) 4) Drop a single image file into the folder – the file becomes the first frame stacked 5) in the folder, copy the image file and then repeatedly paste it, making ‘Image copy.png’, ‘Image Copy (2).png’, etc – these files also get added to the stack with no further intervention needed.
