Animations with FireCapture

Post by krakatoa1883 » Tue May 26, 2020 8:06 pm

Today I tried my very first (short) animation, it is very rough and uneven between single images, I hope to do better with practice.

I read on the excellent guide "How to image the Sun" that "FireCapture can be set to take a sequence of short video files at specific intervals for a given amount of time". In FC I got this panel

but couldn't find where to specify the interval between each sequence, can someone help me ?
Thanks in advance

You can use the autorunner function.

Select the # images, delay and time limit per video.
