I've run New_Grib through many of my locally stored grib files. Including Current
Gribs. I like it.
I think the interface and user control is good. We can always have wind
speed and direction and pressure. Then we can select one other type of data to overlay.
I like the name of the file in the lower left corner, excellent.
I have attached some files, the names of the files give some indication of what they are.
It bombed on a couple of files (out of many files). I don't know if it is a bad file or not. I think it works in qtvlm, but I will check.
Also one of the files that did not write but did not bomb either was a zero byte file, possibly there could be a message?
There are some screen
shots below of several world scale Current
gribs, that show data in the window, but do not show arrows or graphics. Can't zoom out far enough, even using CM93 Charts
. These are pretty big files. I can attach or put in dropbox and provide a link if you would like. I believe they work in qtVlm.
I like this plugin, including:
choices, excellent (can we add more? also can we have option of download (later feature maybe), with ability browse and add URL locations & description)
Showing cursor data in popup screen
, very good. (Can this screen expand a little so that we can get Current in there? -- I know I can uncheck something too, like Rainfall, or Wind
The configuration popup window is good. It would be nice if you could keep this window up and select and display the various data overlays without having the window close (saves time looking at the data). I assume this operation would be done while video is not playing, when on a specific grib date and UTC time.
I would very much like to be able in the future to display 2 gribs one for Current (which is usually separate, and possibly another for sea temp) and one for the other data.
Also I think a transparency slider for the second current grib and for the selected data overlay would be good.
Then of course the Video type Play feature in Grib_Enhancements would be very useful, with speed fast or slow slider.
Hope this does not sound demanding. It is incredible what everyone has done here! It really seems like this improves very fast, but I know it takes time programming!
Thank you Sean, Jean Pierre, Nohal and all.
