Warning messages on Tellicast

LaurentD
 

Hi to the group,

Since the last Tellicast update (2.14.4), I noticed some intermittent Warnings (not every day) in the Tellicast log:
Do someone know if it is related to the EKU (driver?) or something different?

Many thanks in advance,

Laurent

Ok Rob, I stand corrected. I don't think it would be to difficult to implement such a feature in EUMECastView ...

The internet is lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And lines to code before I sleep,

And lines to code before I sleep.

Kind regards,

Hi, Hugo.

I disagree with you that an automatic update wouldn't add much.
Some time ago my xrit2pic could only create video in a manual way. As a result I didn't do that very often (actually, rarely).
Now I have it running in a full automatic way (including removing old data), covering western Europe, using RSS, and it is fascinating to see how clouds are forming, moving, hanging against coasts etc. Each day is different. I think the only way to experience that is to have an automatic way of creation; you never know what next day will bring.

Regards,
Rob.

Hi David, Graham,

In the beginning the program will probably not update the video automatically. ( I don't like to use scripts ). The reason is of course that my system exist of two PC's, one receiving the data and one running EUMETCastView and my programs must run on Linux as well as on Windows. But that being said, if you keep the calculated video images from a previous run, a new run ( for example 1 hour later ), will be very fast because the program will only calculate the added video images. For creating the video itself I use 'ffmpeg', which is very fast, (https://www.ffmpeg.org/ ) and runs on Windows and Linux.
Updating the video automatically makes the whole thing more complex, and, in my humble opinion does not add much to the usability of the program.

Kind regards,

Hugo

Hi Hugo

Wow - that sounds fantastic One other question - will it auto update the animation as new images come in ?

Graham
================================

I guess you know that the existing MSG Data Manager and GeoSatSignal software offers most, if not all, these functions as well, and will run under Linux/WINE? Automate via a scheduled script.

Cheers,
David

Graham,

You will be able to choose from every spectral band that is available to create an RGB color video ...

Kind regards,

Sounds really useful Hugo.  Looking forward to the release.

Sorry for strange mail format but BT third party pop3 servers are down again (or not synched) so having to reply via webmail which I detest.

Douglas.

Hi John,

I am currently in the process of writing a video extension to EUMETCastView. It will allow you to make video's of all the geostationary satellites data, but also of the projections.
( and maybe later of the different RGB Recipes ). 
On my youtube channel I published already a small video made by the program. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLwZf-C5aIM).
The program isn't ready for releasing, but in a few weeks time it should be ready ( there are also the holidays ...)

Kind regards,

Hugo

Hi Hugo

That's sounds great - will they be in full colour ?

Looking forward to using this new feature when available.

 

Best regards

John,

it will be possible to make video's from Meteosat-11, -10, -9, -8, GOES-16 and Himawari-8 . The frequency of the images from other sats are too low.

Kind regards,

Hugo

Greetings Hugo and thanks for directing me to the YouTube video.

Now looking forward to a future release of EUMETCastView with the animation feature.
Will there be incorporated a choice selection of either 15min (MSG-4) or 5min (MSG-3) RSS
channels.                Appreciate your efforts with this programme.  John.

John,

Yes, actually, any source can be used. Also e.g. the ioc, with 30 min. interval.

Re: EUMETCastView

xrit2pic can produce animations right from the received files.
I have it constantly running, producing a growing "animation-of-the-day", starting from scratch each day.
mplayer is used to show the animation, xrit2pic creates the growing avi file and controls mplayer to restart if a new part is added.
Maybe not the easiest to set up, but it works perfectly for months, without manually interfering (except for looking now and then...)

==========================================================================
John firstly welcome back.

John there are no animation options within the EUMETCastView program itself although I have often thought it would be an excellent addition to the program.

Of course there is also David's excellent software but Animator will not animate the files processed by EUMETCastView and requires MSG DM to save in the appropriate way for Animator.

You can of course use image processing software but automation is very difficult (particularly without programming skills).

Regards,
Douglas.

Signal from TP1 appears to have been down since 13:44 UTC.

.. and back sometime after 14:16 UTC.

I saw two loss periods, lasting 1800+ and 120+ seconds.
