Add a notification if/when planetary captures fail or don't complete

Question

I've been having some issues with planetary captures where I set the number of frames to 2000 or above and once the frame counter hits the desired number the memory countdown begins but doesn't always go to 0, the process doesn't finish and I have jpegs that were going to be joined into an Avi in the download folder. I have a post in a different forum section about it and I am getting help with that.  But it would be nice if BYE would show an error dialog if there was an issue with planetary captures.

BYE is limited to a great extent by the capabilities of the Canon (or Nikon) SDK. If the camera shuts down, but the SDK does not notify BYE, then there is not much BYE can do to notify the user. That said, there may be some room for improvement in this area. The developers will have to look at it.

The issue isn't live view shutting down because the after the capture "completes" live view is still active.  A popup notification with that electric sound effect like the one that shows up if you hit connect when the camera is either off or not connected would be good.  I say "completes" because it doesn't always complete properly.

On the other thread you said that Planetary mode displays the last image. To me this means that it is no longer active. LiveView has shut down, but Planetary mode is still the active function in BYE.

I never said that. I asked if live view shutdown would BYE just display the last streamed frame.  I have never witnessed the live view shut down or stop refreshing.  Even recently on nights where the ambient temp was 80F.  I did say that for the time that the problem happened, during the memory count down after hitting record then the 2000 frames were captured, the counter never hit zero and the live view was still functional and actively streaming frames, and I could tell because of the Earth's atmosphere fluctuating in front Jupiter.

Please take discussion of the current "Issue" back to the long Support Thread in the BackyardEOS Forum.

This Forum is for the Introduction and explanation of a "New Feature" being Requested.

The first Post does describe the Feature that you are requesting.  But between yourself and Richard, you have returned to "litigating" the original description of your Planetary Video does Not Complete.  This is not the place to carry that discussion.

My apologies for answering that post about the other thread.
