Hi SonotaCo,

You've done a great job, you deserve a rest!

Capture hardware: nvidia geforce 6600gt VIVO (also Kworld Xpert DVD maker 2.0)

CPU: Pentium IV 3GHz

Video Format: 720x576 25fps

Purpose: Meteor capture and anything else of interest like sprites. Hopefully someday a friend will join me Crying or Very sad and then we can use UFOOrbit

Problems: When I first started the program and loaded the settings and clicked 'preview', I could only see a black screen. I had to switch between video standards before it started working, I didn't need to do this with the old version. It seems like it needed a bit of kickstart, but I think the problem lies with my video capture drivers which are very buggy so I wouldn't worry about it Wink

Comments: Is it possible to have a record of the times during which the program was 'detecting'? This is so that accurate statistics can be generated.


UFOCapture v2 full PAL 720x576!

Thank you Robert
I am very happy to see the first report.
Full PAL was one of major purpose of V2. Your report is precious.
I will send you a serial ID and key later.

V2.005 now outputs a xml for each clip like below.
Do you mean that should I add msec field in it? or should I add each frame information?
I thought that the analysis of each frame should be the role of post processing tool(UFOAnalyzer), otherwise, the load of capture may be too high.
But, if there are reasons to do it, I will consider about this.

Hi SonotaCo,

No that is not what I meant. I mean there should be a record of when the UFOCapture program was running and detecting meteors. This would allow us to calculate the average detection rates more accurately.

If I wanted to say that UFOCapture captures an average of 50 meteors in the month of February 2005. This does not mean that UFOCapture was running 24hrs a day detecting meteors throughout the month of February.

Let's imagine in February 2006 I run UFOCapture and I only get 40 meteors in that month. Maybe that is because the meteor streams are less active, but maybe it is because UFOCapture program was not detecting for as long because the camera was broken for example.

You could have another xml file like this for example

<ufocapture_detect version="200">

<ON time="2/02/05 17:45" />
<OFF time="2/02/05 17:50" />

<ON time="2/02/05 17:51" />
<OFF time="3/02/05 6:30" />

<comment>Camera was broken</comment>

<ON time="5/02/05 21:23" />
<OFF time="6/02/05 5:30" />

</ufocapture_detect>

The XML format may be unsuitable for recording this data as the file size would get too big

Thanks, Robert.

Hi Robert
Now I understand. Huum, it is reasonable and is not difficult.
V1 had this function. But in terms of changing logging format, it has gone somewhere.
OK, I will think about implementation.

Thanks for looking at this for me.
If you don't think it should be part of the main UFOCapture program you could add this feature to UFOMonitor instead?

I plan a new monthly log file which will be created in month dir.
See attached sample file detlog.csv.
A time stamp will be appended at every time when detection starts or ends.
This function will be implemented in V2.006.
This function may be useful for many people not only for statistics, but also for security purpose
(I am not planning UFOMonitor for V2, because hangups decreased).

Thank you for a good suggestion.

Great software.

1. Capture hardware product name
Medion PC with Video in
also tried Canon Camcorder (PAL) through Firewire port

2. CPU name
Pentium 4, 2.6 GHz

3. Video format (resolution and fps)
Full frame PAL or 360 X 240

4. Purpose
Meteor, sprites

5. Comments or found problems
Had only a first glance up to now (playing around for 30 min)

Works with DV PAL video through firewire, but quite slow. If frame size is downsampled it becomes ok.
UT correction does not allow for daylight saving. I am in UT + 1 zone + daylight saving, the time displayed is UT+1 and not UT. Have to test th great number of new functions.

Cheers
Hartwig

Thank you for the update! I am testing v2 now and I have captured 2 meteors so far (during a period of an hour or so), using DV PAL. It is a canopus advc 55. The image quality is very good but it is too dark.

Thank you for joining beta test > Hartwig.
I will send you a key soon.

>Works with DV PAL video through firewire, but quite slow. If frame size is downsampled it becomes ok.
DV requires very high performace, because the the DV driver consume much.
Analog capture may need less power with same size.

I saw the Sprites you have captured Shocked . Congratulations!
I think free hand area mask function of V2 may help you.

>UT correction does not allow for daylight saving. I am in UT + 1 zone + daylight saving, the time displayed is UT+1 and not UT.
Oh!! daylight saving!! Rolling Eyes
OK, I will do something.

UFOCapture V2.007 now become downloadable.
http://sonotaco.jp/V2/BT/

Changes:
1. implement daylight saving time adjustment

UFOCaptureV2.007 check the daylight saving status of the pc at the beginning of execution, and keep it until program ends. This spec will result some incorrect time in the changing day.But it is necessary to avoid duplicated time. Please restart UFOCapture when daylight saving begins. And please stop more than 1 hour when daylight saving ends. To avoid all time gap problem, please use UTC mode.

Hi
Just testing the new daylight saving correction. There still appears to be a problem with daylight saving. The correction appears to go in the wrong direction. For instance, I live in the UT + 1 zone, and daylight saving is ON. So I am effectively in UT + 2. With the 2.007 version and the UT flag not set, UTC + 3 time is displayed (should be UTC + 1). When I set the UTC flag, UTC + 1 is displayed (should be UTC).

Appears to be an easy thing to do (just some sign change somewhere).

Good luck

Hartwig
