This video shows how processing a complex Hubble Space Telescope SHO dataset is virtually just as easy as processing a simple DSLR dataset in StarTools 1.5. Aside from activating the Compose module, your workflow and processing considerations are virtually the same. Please see video description on YouTube for datasets and other resources.
Thank you StarTools for turning my average photos into amazing ones.
"L, RGB" simply uses the loaded luminance dataset for luminance and uses red, green and blue for the color information.
Upon opening an image, the Tracking dialog will open, asking you about the characteristics of the data.
StarTools' AutoDev module however uses image analysis to find the optimum custom curve for the characteristics of the data.
Through the Compose module, StarTools is able to process luminance and color information separately, yet simultaneously.
You can convert everything you see to a format you find convenient. Give it a try!
