Been a fan and user of Siril for some time now.
Disclaimer: in no way I feel entitled to have a say in what Siril does or is, this is just a couple of suggestion made by talking with people that found the GUI of Siril hard to approach, and in some cases they found Siril came short of doing something, and if it did the way to do certain things is way too convoluted.
Back to the topic.
I found Many of the implementation of Siril fantastic, cdeconvolution, Photometric Color Calibration are just a couple of example of processed that are faster and in my opinio better than corresponding features in other softwares that shall remain unnamed.
I do want to make a suggestion when it comes to the GUI and the way to load files into SIRIL.
Scripts are great and all, customization made by the community is something I don’t want to see go away.
It is though alienating towards many users.
At this point I’d like to make a suggestion, is there any chance for developers to bring Siril to look more like the two images linked?
It tooked me half an hour to just lay down a template of what I think a good loading files page should look like, by no means is complete or perfect and much more experienced people will and should point out its flaws.
In short, the idea is to have an OSC page where files can be load by simply clicking on the drop down menu, navigating to where the files are and selecting them all.
I also though of adding a plus button to add addition sessons in case the object we are trying to stack has been imaged on different night, or required a different set of calibration files.
For OSC cameras
Working as follows: Lights 1 are to be clibrated with files loaded into Darks 1, flats 1, darkflats1 and bias 1.
Same thing applies for lights 2, and in the end have siril integrate all the calibrated files.
For Mono Cameras
Similar to the second page which is the Multi channel dedicated one, selecting a set of lights, choosing the filter 8for which Siril will determined the appropriate calibration files)
And spit out the calibrated masters for each channel.
I know, I think I’m asking too much, but I see the potential this software has and I like it way too much, it just need a couple of refinements in my opinion.
To whoever responds thank you for taking the time, and if what I propose is not possible i understand.
