I’ve been using SGP for almost a year and I have to admit to some frustrations. I’ve worked through many, but one, in particular, has me scratching my head. Maybe I am expecting something outside of its design, but it seems strange nonetheless.
In the Framing and Mosaic Wizard, I have been selecting an equipment profile before beginning my selection of an object to image. This works for setting the camera data definition section, but it appears that if I don’t select an equipment profile, it ignores the default equipment profile I set in the equipment profile manager (oddity #1). So a profile must be selected, but it only works for the camera data definition.
When generating a sequence from FMW, the equipment listed in the sequence is either nothing, or it picks up the equipment used from the prior sequence. I would have expected it to carry over the equipment profile selected earlier (oddity #2)
The control panel also uses the last equipment profile information from the previous sequence.
The only way I can make it work properly and avoid frustration is to go to File>Apply Profile to Sequence to set the equipment properly in the newly created sequence from FMW.
Is this by design or is this a bug?
