Getting FITS Error: BITPIX keyword 0 illegal value

This is after sequencing an AVI file, then of course when I try to restack it wont because it has already created a file.

Any idea what this is and how to fix it?

Hello. The support of AVI films is not really active in siril.
We encourage you to use SER instead.

I will take a look at the code but I can’t promise anything. Did you use Siril 0.9.12 or Siril dev?

Thank you for your reply - 0.9.12 and I believe it only happens when I select an area and check the drizzle box

ok, thanks for the report. If you convert your avi in SER (conversion tab, load the avi, write a sequence name ending with .ser) that should be fine.

I will try!

Let us know please

This worked! Now if I could figure out how to process planet data :slight_smile:

Maybe we could allow films to be taken as input, but automatically convert to SER if the output is a sequence?


That probably would be the best option indeed.

I’ve fixed the issue in master.
