    Is the app going to compile the images to HDR or allow both, whereas there is control over the exposure saving to multiple JPEGs ?

    A few months ago I asked you a series of question, are any of those going to be fulfilled in the Windows10 version ?
    It'll be one file. I'm sorry, what were your questions? I'd be glad to answer them.

    I feel terrible. Everything was all set to launch by the end of this week, but some mix ups happened with my paperwork and I don't have an ETA anymore :( I incorporated Rise Up Games (like two months ago) and have been waiting on all of the moving pieces: Paperwork -> Dissolve old LLC -> More paperwork -> Incorporate -> Even more paperwork -> Wait -> Get EIN -> Register with MS as new developer -> Wait for IRS to update their database so MS can verify me -> Transfer stuff from old MS account -> Upload new ProShot -> Publish

    Some of these steps require weeks of waiting and / or hand-written letters sent by mail. It's the slowest most screwy process in the world and somewhere along this wild chain of events things went wrong.

    On the plus side I'm adding one (or two!) more new features for launch. So back to work I go.

    I find it incredibly bizarre any paperwork gets sent via mail nowadays. Especially legal paperwork.. there's a 'trail' if it gets lost online/delivered to the wrong address, but if a mail sorting machine eats it or is physically stolen, as far as the post office is concerned - it never existed.

    That sucks, I am interested in seeing how Windows 10 would handle Proshot!

    I was dumbstruck when I heard it. Direct words from an IRS representative.

    This looks great. Honestly and truely great. Your app has been one of the greatest on any platform I've used, and really makes the Lumia cameras shine. I really can't wait to get out there any try the light painting feature. I think this will be great for trying for some startrail photography with the Lumia 950!

    The Light Painting mode is still in its early stages, much like how it is on iOS and Android, so it won't be too useful for star trails just yet. But that feature is sooo high on my todo list. For now the timelapse (intervalometer) mode will be your best bet, then stack the images on your computer.

    Can the light painting mode be used for any type of simulated long exposure? For instance, making a waterfall look smooth in the middle of the day.

    Yep, it can be used for that. You'll have to keep the camera reallllllly steady though. There are many different algorithms I can use for the image processing, the one implemented in this first release was just the easiest. I'll be experimenting with and adding more techniques in the future!

    When we expect proshot w10m UWP app?
    I already recharge my mobile for purchasing app.
    Waiting for reply.

    I think the likely answer is Soon (IRS™) followed by Soon (MS™).

    Still a few legal hurdles to jump through before it can be released.

    Awesome. Hoping that was the case. I use a tripod for anything long exposure. On the PC, I've found averaging the photos together makes for a nice long exposure. Not sure if that works well for light trails though, but it does smooth out water pretty good.

    Oh sweet, really? It won't let in too much light, and bleed out the image?

    Actually I don't want to get anyone's hopes up too much, you'd likely get better results setting the shutter speed to 1/4s and shooting through one or two pairs of sunglasses (free ND filters, basically ).

    Light Painting in ProShot is still really early tech, and the resolution is low. It definitely has applications, but for shooting waterfalls you're still going to see some breaks in movement. I don't live near a waterfall so I put a YouTube video of a waterfall on my laptop monitor and used Light Painting on that haha. This will give you an idea of what to expect. As time goes on I will be improving the algorithm and adding more features.

    Looks like the light painting feature among others may be broken on Anniversary Update builds. Looks like it's due to a bug in the OS. RiseUpGames has said the bug is fixed internally, but this has not been pushed out to users.

    Yep, so sorry for the delay everyone, this W10 journey has been one wild ride after another

    FAQ
    Q: Date, price and requirements?
    A: ProShot for Windows 10 is launching Monday August 15, 2016. It will be 50% off for the first 24h at $1.99. After that the normal price will be $3.99. It requires Windows 10 build 10586 or higher and will run on phone, tablet, laptop, PC, everything.
    Edit: due to some bug in the Store I wasn't able to publish ProShot on the 15th. Its frustrating and out of my control and I don't have any real answers from Microsoft yet.

    Q: Why do I have to pay again if I already have ProShot?
    A: I understand that money is a concern for a lot of people. Here is what happened behind the scenes:

    1) I had to change my developer account to a new one because reasons. Due to an obscure rule in the MS Store, I couldn't transfer ProShot from the old account to the new one. That made an upgrade path impossible.

    2) Rather than take old code and shove it into Windows 10, I decided to start fresh. I also had to start fresh because communicating to the camera hardware in Windows 10 is completely different from Windows Phone. There's also a million other things that had to be done differently to bring the app to W10. Remeber that ProShot is more than just an app, it's a camera operating system.

    Once I decided on this path, I was able to fully commit to it and actually make something truly new and ground breaking. It took a very long time to make, and it brings a ton of improvements and new features not seen on any version of ProShot on any platform.

    Q: What's new?
    A: Tons of stuff.
    • Can now shoot video, with full manual controls, and adjust frame rate, bit rate, resolution, and see mic levels in real-time
    • Can now shoot RAW (saved as a TIFF file)
    • New, cleaner UI. Polished UX
    • Redesigned image processing pipeline
    • Faster startup
    • Leverages the full power of the Windows 10 platform, and can run on ANY Windows 10 device. Forever.


    Q: What didn't make it to ProShot for Windows 10?
    A: Real time filters and highlight clipping. I spent months engineering a GPU pipeline on the old ProShot to get those to work at 60fps even on a $50 phone. On W10 something similar is kind-of possible, but it consumes a lot of power and only runs well on a 950.

    Q: What happens to ProShot for Windows Phone?
    A: It will remain on the store for those who cannot update to Windows 10, and it will be called ProShot Classic. ProShot Classic won't be receiving any new features, but it will receive critical updates.

    Q: What comes next?
    A: Just like I kept ProShot for Windows Phone updated for years, I plan on doing the same for W10. I am always listening to feedback, and have a huge list of things I want to add. I've built a really solid, future-proof framework on Windows 10, and I can't wait to see where the future takes us!

    Thanks for your awesome work! Do you know if your app will work on a Lumia 1020 with 14393.67?
