Let's hope it isn't fixed, it's causing more bother than it's worth.

Topic: Calibration Movies with track cheat
Replies: 17
Views: 16612

After I had done a few, I realized that I knew there was a track before I had even seen the track, so I began looking for a visual cue in the calibration movies. I noticed that the calibration movies WITH tracks were a little more pixelated. I don't see how you could NOT pick up on the difference, ...

Re: Calibration movie fatigue

I've been a member of this project since the first few hours it was available. Currently about 1/3 of all the movies I've viewed have been calibration movies. And I am starting to get tired of them. I joined the project to view real movies and try to find intersteller dust. Now I feel like I am the...

I suspect it's a false positive with someone identifying the bit of 'dust' that's on all the movies at 230 microns from the left and 50 microns up.

AG how did u figure that out about movie numbers? When you start seeing the same ones over and over again the pattern's obvious. However, it's not a problem: - it still keeps you on your toes - you can save your eyes by not straining for something that isn't there - you don't get unnecessarily exci...

Use the micron scale at the bottom, and eye-ball in about 270 to 300 microns in from the left, maybe 4o microns up from the bottom. Keep your eye on that spot. Pull the focus down beginning at the middle o...

... And for those who haven't seen many callibration movies. Many are very obvious, but there are some where the track is barely a point that doesn't change in a few focus frames. The shortcut to calibration movies is: IDs 8000 to ~10300 are calibration movies with no track ~10300 to ~12000 are cal...

I'm more concerned that a majority aren't paying attention. Check out these two of the sixteen I've flagged so far.
