All Sky Camera

Some information on how to run the All Sky Camera.


The ASC is run on wettonpc2. It is currently run from a matlab script located in C:\ASC\main.m -- Load this up in matlab and run it. It should sort itself out with the right exposure times.

Encoding videos

Daily encoding batch script now running automatically at 12:02 on wettonpc1...

DOS batch file created to run the encoding commands (below). To run this go to // (map this as a network drive from windows to run under dos). The run: encode YYYY-MM-DD (e.g. encode 2011-08-20). This will run the commands below automagically.

Settings for encoding daily videos -- not optomised at all, but seems to work with flowplayer.
