Recommended Posts

I didn't really know where to put this question so its ended up here and not very Astronomical, Sorry.

Does anyone know how i can stack CCTV images so i can read the Reg plate of the van of the guy that stole my sons bike? Can i do it with registax what do i have to convert it too?

Yes - you can, you want to drizzle it to recover detail.

Any planetary stacker would work .

in fact i'd be interested in having a go. what format is it in? An AVI or just a series of BMPs or TIFs or PNGs would be great. But maybe another format too.

I have two AVI files in 30min segments, from 2 different cameras, but im struggling to get them down to a manageable portion, the 2mins in question.  Registax wont load them for some reason, I take it that its because of the size, what do you reckon i should use to edit down to the 2min required? by all means you can have a go if I can get it down to a manageable size.

Have you tried putting it through PIPP first , incidentally I believe that images from lower quality CCTV cameras are easier to recreate detail from than HD images.

There's also a video editor used by folks on here but the name escapes me ATM, something like Vdub ?
