Useing Registax6
Posted by keithkirk on Friday, October 25, 2013 6:46 PM

I've got my first movies taken thru my SkyPro 150mm Mak-Cass with the new digital camera. Samsung WB100 wi-fi. Having problems with registax6. How do I break the movie into induvidual frames to stack.  Registax6 seams to look at the 2:30 movie as one frame. I downloaded a tutorial on Registax6 from the web site, but I'm not getting any results.

Hi Keith,

It probably has to do with the type file format your 'movie' is saved as.  Registax will not work with .MOV files. What you need to do is convert your movie to something reigistax and other stacking programs can work with.  A program called "Virtualdub" seems to be the program of choice for doing this.  More info in the link below.

I have a file converter program called converter lite.  I Convert MP4 files to Mpeg files or GIF files.  I still says "one from to stack" when I try to work that file.

When you load an acceptable movie format file into Registax, the first thing you do to it is designate one or more alignment points so it can rip through the file assessing the individual frames for quality (or differences between frames at the point(s) you designate for alignment).

You should then see a message indicating how many frames out of the total are available for processing, and when you click LIMIT you are telling the software to accept that number of frames to process.

If either the file format is bad or your reference point for alignment is inappropropriate, Registax will process only the frame currently loaded (usually the first frame in the sequence).

I suspect you are still seeing a file format problem if not matter what you try you only get a single frame to process.

I use VirtualDub almost exclusively for working with video files to load into Registax. I never see this error, even though I do use some incompatible file formats from time to time, depending on which cameras I am using. VDub does a great job of converting the formats into AVI files -- which Registax prefers.

I am useing convertlite and I can convert the MP4 files my camera records in to AVI files. When I try to set alainment points thru registax is says 'scan line index out of range'.  I with there was agood tutorial on registax but I can't find one.  I contacted registax and they said to convert to Pipp what ever that is. I don't know if this if going to work or not.
