Get Front Panel Image - False Color


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I have a strange bug/feature with Front Panel - Get image. The image has a false color. I haven't tested with other colors, I hope there's some easy answer, or it is a known bug, so I stop searching and heavy debugging and go with the alt+printscreen emulation method instead of get image.

The false color is on the graph > plotimages.back and seemilnly it's only the orange that turns into pink.
(Don't mind the other small differences betwen the images)

The pictures are generated in sequence without any delays, maybe the front panel is not fully updated before the capture? Which would mean some things are updated asynchronomously, which I didn't explicitly do. I certainly see the front panel flashing in the right colors.

 

Thanks for any hints!

Hi,

My guess is that you have set the Get Image method to use 16 bit colors.

Use 24 bit and it will show up correct (I recreated and solved the issue just now by generating a front panel image of a screenshot of your original colors).
