Version 1.0.6.0 is done now:
-new Seek Hi FPS Kernel, more about that here:
http://www.eevblog.com/forum/thermal-imaging/yet-another-cheap-thermal-imager-incoming/msg999413/#msg999413
- the Calibration Window for the DIY-Thermocam has now a Monitor (a small subwindow showing the live Camera image)
- the histogram calculation was improved and faster
- the Median filter now calculate the borders around the image too
- "get reference Frame" switch of the Function for the next frame to get a new reference (you just have to click once to refresh the reference)
- new movie function for *.avi files, it should work for *.mpeg too if you have the codecs installed

Any way i can add my own color palettes?
Not yet, but i can implant a "custom palette" which come from a external image file, so you can draw you own palette an just read in the file.

Excellent work on the software.

I'll second being able to import a custom palette. I use an e4 (enhanced...) and it would be REALLY NICE to be able to use the same palette as the default that ships with the camera. That way what I see on the camera is what I see in your software.

Your software is replacing the weird and stupid expensive Flir software (stupid expensive for the little it does). I had an unlimited license on the Flir software, but with various updates to my machine I lost that capability (it was a key supplied by Flir while I was testing things). Your software (especially as you add new features) it much more useful than the Flir software.

cheers & thanks for your continued work,
george.

Version 1.0.7.0 is released and V1.0.6.0 was removed (to avoid Law problems)
Changes:
- It's possible to record interpolated movies
(While the video file is open, the Interpolation setting was fixed, because no size change is allowed)
- Fullscreen mode could safer return to normal
- Issue with the Scale was fixed (allowed range now -1276.8 to 5276.7)
(Images from an older Version could load normal but new images have problems on older versions)
- new Startupwindow to show a loading GUI on older PCs
- External Color palette could be load:
 You can just crop the Scale from some of your Pictures, it needs 256 Pixel to read the Scale (the image could be bigger), if your Scale has a lower or higher distance, you need to resize it with an image manipulation program (I prefer Paint.NET).
The Palette Image could be a normal *.jpg,*.png,*.bmp (maybe more, but not tested).
Just put the Image in the \bin folder and write the Name in the "External Palette Setup" Window.
After loading the File (it must be shown on the left site) you can change the Offset for top and left to find the best readout for your scale. If the Extraction not fails, the new scale was shown right and (if selected) on the actual loaded IR-Image.
The Palette in the sample below is the Ironbow, just inverted.

Changes for the Seek Thermal Camera
- 30 FPS Mode disabled
- Device serial discard every second Byte (this bytes was zero)
- The Deathpixelmap shows now the Serial of the Device
(The Seek App shows another Serial than my Software, I show only the Raw Bytes as Hex values, so each 2 Chars represent one Byte in the order 1,3,5,7...)
- New seek Kernel with Gain/OffsetMap Generator
You can do it step by step in the Calibration window or use the Quick way:
1. Select Tab: "Extern" and hit the button "Create new GO-Map"
2. Now the Gain and offset processing is disabled (no usable image is displayed), point to a uniform heated surface like the Wall
 And click on the blue "Get Low Frame..."
3. Now point to a uniform heated surface with higher temperature, like the inside of your hands
And click on the orange red "Get Hi Frame..."
4. Done, now you have a new Map and after an auto scale you should have a clear image. The difference between the Wall and the Hand is low (20°C to 33°C -> 13°C range) but it's enough for a quick test.

To get the best results, let the Seek warm-up for 5 minutes, while use the "normal" mode (frequent shutter NUCs appear).
After warm-up, switch to "Raw" Mode and generate the Map.
Then you should have a relative clear image without automatic Shutter NUCs. You can use the Button over the Map Generation ("Frame as Offset") while you point to a uniform heated surface to perform a shutter less NUC.
Additional Info:
If you switch to raw mode at startup, it's possible that some single Pixel glitches appear while heat up. If you switch to normal mode, they disappear after some seconds. It seems to be, that the internal ADC setting for each Pixel was shifted after the Frame ID1 was send from the Camera.
So the normal mode could be used to bring the Sensor in a valid range. The Raw mode just shows an averaged image without Shutter movement and ADC changes.

wow...working real good. Temp calibrating will take a bit for me to figure out but getting close. Crashes with the offset NUC.


Imported my "medical" color scheme into it. Works just as good as on Frenkys. Ive attached it if someone wants to try it. :-DMM

Good work and thank you. :-+ :clap:

I had no better way for that yet, if you have a better way or a suggestion, let me know  8)
Crashes with the offset NUC.
I tried a while to found the error, the Debug Version work, but i saw the crash after try with the release.
after some restructuring it now works on release  :palm:
Version 1.0.7.1 is out now.
An error with the auto load of the external palette was fixed too.
Ive attached it if someone wants to try it. :-DMM
thanks, it looks similar to GrayIron and GrayRainbow, but i like it.

Na, only thing i can code is my arduino and neopixels.  :-//

 I only meant i like having to figure things out...your software makes seek alot more than it is.

 As for the med palette, i wanted a neutral area like the GI and GR, but a bit more and blueish. Then made the colors tighter to show more temp variations.

Thanks again for the killer software.

New Release to 1.1.0.0
- Snapshot Function for DIY-Thermocam (IR Frame + VGA Visual Image)
- New Zoombox, could be enabled with Mouse menu in MainIR or with CTRL+Z
- Image filter Gausian blur and Convolution 3x3 are build in (Rep. Median was temporary removed, is under development)
- new Window: Image processing (combines some Functions that was in Function and Devices Tabs before)
- Seek Thermal: on high temperatures some Pixels switch do dark. they will be now replaced with a maximum value of valid pixels. Not that great, but better than before.
- Image browser: image acquisition don't lock the files anymore
- Image browser has now a Thermal Expert Mode, more below
- Thermal Expert Images could be read in, more below

New Zoombox
in early version the zoom box just show a croped and interpolated version of the Main image.
Now the Zoom field grab the raw data and generate his own Image. It can be fixed and has his own sharpen filter.
The image is also auto scaled to get a good contrast.

Thermal Expert Image browser
the App have to be set to "Thermal & Visible Image & Temperature". this is the only way to get the *.csv files, that contains radiometric data.
The Function search only *.csv files, but if found, the Thermal and Vis images will be shown too. If no thermal image is found, the *.csv will be used to generate a thumbnail preview. If the Filesize is too low, the Image browser will show this file with red background, this indicates missing data in the file.

I also notice a border issue on the right side. i build a function to fix this, if your camera don't have this border, uncheck the box in Devices->i3 T-Expert.

Temp Schalter (Temperature Switch)
this opens a new Window (up to 10 maximal). this window could be docked. Each Window is a own instance.

this Function also exist in the Ex-Tools and was called "Analysis".
It connects a Measurement Value to a condition and will trigger a action.

Getting started:
1. set some Measurements and open the temp switch (TS Symbol , between "Set box" and "Panels:" in menu bar)
2. select the Measurement you want to monitor
3. select a condition, possible are:
greater than / less than / equal (rounded to 1 digit) / between / not between
4. define the threshold temperature
5. choose the actions if the condition is triggered, the name should be self explaining

now the Function can also be used with the Serial port. Fist you have to Setup and open the Prot in Devices->Serial Terminal.
If the Port is not open, this function deactivate himself.
there are 3 Sending functions, and they will appear from up to down... if all are active, first the text in the box will be send, than the bytes (as decimal 0-255 separated by space) and as last the Temperature Value as text.

Download on my site in German, or with english Preset from here:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-YjTGxntt5KbHlkanNvNFJ3SUE

Next steps... T-Expert Live Stream  :-/O
Maybe FLIR One G2 Live Stream, but this device wont communicate to me yet  :-//

Version 1.1.2.2 is out now.

the Last version has a referencing error after open a external Visual image (DIY-Thermocam and i3 Thermal Expert).
because this a image could be loaded and shown (including Overlay). but the Visual image could not be stored into file.
Now no image is locked after read/shown the Image and the Visual is stored as wanted.

New Function: Delete in Image Browser
left Mousebutton -> open file
right Mousebutton -> mark file (shows a big red box with "DEL")
after select the Images you want remove, kick the button down right to remove the marked files.
the Deletefunction will also delete the Extra Files... Delete one File from i3 Folder, removes 3 Files, the thermal Preview (App Screenshot), the Visual image and the CSV with the raw data.

New Function: Quick shot.
you can define a Keyboard Key (SPACE is default) and each time you hit this key a radiometric image will be stored.
the User can choose the name of the folder, containing the images. each folder has his own "overview.txt" containing the time (from keypress), the Filename and the min/max value.

Unfortunately version above 1.0.7.1 don't work with my seek thermal compact and indicate 100% dead pixels.
I see a blue screen only. Version 1.0.7.1 and below works perfectly.

Thank you for info.
My seeks work without problems...

1. is it really has 100% Deathpixel?
If the camera is connected and streaming, hit on the "show death pixel map", if the camera was recognized as 100% defect it should show a black window with red dots (patent pattern). Each white Pixel indicate a valid pixel.

2. maybe a scaling issue,
Start the seek and after 2-3 Seconds right click on the Scale and hit "autoscale" from the menu.
The Slope in the seek settings should be something like 0.047101, if you have values >1 change to 0.1 for start.
The offset should be in range -100 to -300 for guidance.

3. if you still not have a view from your camera, please note the raw min and max from the Rawdata box.
Are the Serial and Device Temperature below shown? Dev. Temperature should be around 4160 (cold) and 4050 if warm-up.

interesting, Raw Max 9137 and Average 7390... that's much.

well, I expanded the valid range from 2000-8000 to 2000-12000. and I removed the fixed value from Gain map creation, this was previously set to 3000 and use now the AVR from FrameID4.
This should work, please try the new 1.1.2.4

Additional change: the image preview acquisition from i3 *.CSV Files was improved.

BTW: you can easy make screenshots with double-click on "Screen" (bottom left corner), this grab only the application Window.

i am happy it works :-+

could you tell me which value  your seek have at startup (Raw min, Raw max, device Temp).
just for interest, maybe the Gainmap change reduce the high values.

Hi Bud,

I'm glad, that you refer this bug.
This great software never before opened a Flir image (Flir Ex, Flir Exx, F1) on my Win10-PC without crash :(
I tested it since version ThermoVision_JoeC_Rel_1.0.4.2...

Code: [Select]
ThermoVision_JoeC_V1.1.2.4Rel\bin
convert.exe
exiftool.exe



Quote
After that, switch the file drop Target:
Menu: File -> Combobox: "Drop -> FLIR *.jpg"
Then you just can drag&drop your images.
after then I got the second screenshot

Hmm...
I try to reproduce...
Direct drop E4 image -> "exif not found"
Copy exiftool.exe and convert.exe in Thermovision\bin folder
Direct drop E4 image -> success (retried with some other)
Look in the archive, found a E45 Image -> fail, looks like a byte order mistake
Additional found a Flir One Image (not sure, maybe from stock app)  -> success

Could you please provide more details about the image? Maybe direct the file with the problem?
I'll try on other machine... :-/O

Edit:
I tested it since version ThermoVision_JoeC_Rel_1.0.4.2...
i don't know there is a issue before, sorry.

Edit 2:
OK... found it.
Fist, the embedded PNGs was extracted over exiftool and command line, that way don't like network paths. If the Images are local, it works.

Additional there is an issue with the "drop-> Flir" mode, if you use the default "autoselect" it should work.
Dit it for you?
anyway, i will fix this next time...

I tested it with two different PC (Windows 8 and Windows 10) but without success.

With Autoselect I can drop and drag a Flir file.

see the result (and look for min/max in log on the the left side)


as source I loaded the E4 image FLIR0008.jpg from this post

thank you for the info, probably it has a problem with the comma as decimal delimiter. i look at that  :-/O

EDIT: yes that's it, i had no problems with the 2 images. after changing the decimal separator to comma i have the same problem.
i found a way to fix this. release will follow in the next days  :-/O

New Version 1.2.0.0 is done.

New folder system:
I changed many internal paths, and now the folder with the executable is next to the Folder with the images (previously \data) and the Folder with some shared Files (previously \bin).
Nobody have to move his stored images since now. On next updates just copy the folder with the executable in your last Thermovision place. the Folder with the executable is the only folder where the name don't care. You can have more than one versions which share the stored images.

-New option for the acquisition of Thermal expert Images: discard temperatures > 1000°C (fix a error while store the image with the app)
-New Function: save changes. Saves the actual file dataset in the path, where the last file was loadet.
-Open file (folder symbol on the left side in the menu bar) is now set to "autoselect" mode.
-Autoselect will cast a *.csv now as a Thermal expert dataset, not as Optris dataset.
-Now the Programm  no more care about the system localisation settings, a point as decimal separator is fixed now.
-new color palette. Medical (based on the template from eternalone, thanks for that)

Image acquisition for FLIR images improved:
-all images will first copied local and processed from there (now the Filedrop and open from network paths is possible)
-the internal process structure has some improvements
-"swap bytes" is optional and have to disabled for older cameras (tested with FLIR E45)
-new Option: "half size". This is for FLIR ONE images, to get the 160x120 image
Note: FLIR ONE G2 Images from stock app could be normal loadet, but I have problems with the "Thermal Camera+" App, the Raw image could loaded, but not the visual frame

I used google drive to share since now, this have better performance.

Know issue: the overlay mode has some offsets, between the overlay image in MainIR window,the overlay in Visual window,  and the stored overlay image.
One of the next ToDoes... :-/O

if somebody has problems, let me know

New Version 1.3.0.2 is out now.
Edit: the most, maybe all stored images (with Visual) from previous version needs a Visual->Right Mouse Context menu->Standard offset.
The old Version has stored incompatible offsets. If load a old image, you may just see the Visual image, even if enabled one of the Overlay Functions.


Link to FE (full extensions) 11MB:
(Include tools to read FLIR *.jpg image and official DLLs for Thermal Expert Camera Live Stream, using official driver.
Thermal Expert live stream with the Zadig driver (same way like Seek thermal) will also work in normal Version)
https://goo.gl/t2w3Wi
Link to normal 1.5MB:
https://goo.gl/5MoJHa

Small changes:
-the min and max pointer in the meas area will now point better
-the "load Setup" in tempswitch now shows a OpenFileDialog to choose the Setup file
-Thermal Expert images: if hi-res map range is too low, only the low res temp map will be read
-sequence changed in the Mode selection Box above the visual Box:
Previously: Visual (with overlay), Zoombox
Since now: Zoombox, Monitor, Only Visual, Thermal Blending, visual isotherm below, visual isotherm above
-visual overlay mode removed from MainIR
-Imagebrowser reads only a preview, if the box was drawed. The last stored images whas shown first. If there many images, the last ones will not directly read. This incase the result in the image browser, while scrolling the additional previews will be load.
-the threshold values for Isotherm are now colored, red for the upper

Value Monitor
this is in the Visual Window and shows a value with a big font. The font size is dependent to the width of the box and a factor below the box.
There 3 Modes: highes value in red, lowes value in blue, or selected measurement
If mode 3 is selected, the measurement has to be selected in the Montor setup.
Mode 3 has 5 possible colors.
Color above Hi 2
Color above Hi 1
Standard color
Color below Low 1
Color below Low 2

Histogram statistic
If active, all non zero values will be counted. This value shows how many different temperatures exist in the image.
Additional the lowest and highest temperature was noted, and the zero values are counted between these values.

Visual Overlay
The previous Overlay, with the extra Picturebox over the visual Box was removed.
The Offsets and Size are no more in the Function panel, they are below the visual image.
 Now there 3 modes selectable:
-Blending
Shows the Thermal image opaque over the Visual image
-visual Isotherm below
There is a threshold, all above is Thermal, all below is visual
 -visual Isotherm above
There is a threshold, all above is visual, all below is Thermal

Thermal image positioning
First select "Thermal Blending" and use the mouse weel to change the opacity.
If the image is not visible, just use mouse menu -> Standardoffset, this function will place the thermal image over the visual with 10% border in each direction.
Mouse positioning:
If the mouse pointer is over thermal image, it has a green doted rectangle around and can be drag on mouse down.
If the mouse pointer is at the border from one side, this side gets a yellow line and the rest of the box is white/black doted.
In this case a mouse down will drag only this border to resize the image.
Keyboard positioning:
WASD = move the Image
Q = decease width (width -2 and X +1)
E = incase width (width +2 and X -1)
R = decease height (height +2 and Y -1)
F = incase height (height -2 and Y +1)
X = decease opacity (more IR, + 20%)
YZ = incase opacity (less IR, - 20%)
If visual isotherm is selected, the mouse weel and the YXZ Keys will change the threshold value for the Isotherm instead of the opacity.

The visual Isotherm threshold is related to the image themperature, but the drawed image is related to the scale settings.
Therefore a little scale can draw the full IR image or nothing. The isotherm threshold value should be between scale min and max.

The Function "save overlay image" from the visual mouse menu will ever save the visual image in native size, a fitted scale and the drawn IR Image, like seen before in the box. If enabled, the actual measurements were written at last.

Thermal Expert Q1 Live Steam
there 2 ways to get a live stream, the official driver from i3 (part of T.E Window Software) and the WinUSB Driver from zadig (same way like seek thermal).

i3 Driver
Devices->Device: T-Expert->i3 Driver->Connect
if connection was successful, the flash was read automatically (needs around 7 Seconds). the live stream starts after.

Z Driver
Devices->Device: T-Expert->Z Driver->Connect
the image was shown directly. if the Camera was not used since the usb contact, the first frames shows the calibration data. I discard all this frames because I don't know enough about that now.
After see the live stream you have to make a new GO Map (Gain Offset).
it's the same way like seek thermal.
1. Just hit the "Create new GO Map"
2. point to a uniform heated cold surface and press the now blue button
3. point to a uniform heated hot surface and press the now red button
then the Cal is finished and image should be clear without pixel errors. The DeathPixelMap was created by the way and can be viewed with "Show DPM".
like the Seek thermal you have to calibrate the Temperatures with a known source. and if your camera heats up or cold down this settings loss their accuracy.
The WinUSB Version has a better resolution on higher temperature scene, but the i3 Driver Way delivers calibrated Temperatures...

I hope I found and remove all issues, if not, let me know.
