Loop limit for imaging plan


In a thread in the Backyard EOS forum it was discovered that there is a "hidden" hard limit of 1000 iterations when looping through a capture plan. This limit is not obvious to the user. I would suggest that the limit should either be raised so that it will never be reached, eliminated, or displayed to the user.

It is easy to work around by simply creating additional duplicate rows, but it would be cleaner if the user did not have to resort to this workaround.

I shot a timelapse a few months ago that ended up consisting of 1300 individual images shot over a period of over 8 hours. Had I used BYE, this limit would have terminated my capture plan early and wasted a night's imaging.

If the limit is to be maintained, the loop count could be displayed in the caption of the Loop button, along with an appropriate tooltip.

I've just fixed this.  It will be in BYE 3.1.17 and BYN 2.0.10.

The splash screen will show sooner, it's now one of the first thing being done.  I've also cached a few global properties that we being accessed repetitively at startup.  This should speed things up a bit.
