Long Term Sliders

Offline
#1 Graphections
Can someone please explain the Long Term Filter SLiders to me?
I seem to doing a lot of guessing with them as I'm trying to remove night time shots from a series of 3 month timelapses.
Screen shots of your sliders would be awesome as well.
Id like to be able to get one of mine to work and use that screen shot as a guide for the remaining of the series - 6 years of 3 month time-lapses in total.

If I new which way to drag to get rid of dark shots it would be a great help.

There are 15,000 shots in total - per 3 month stretch 1 shot every 5 minutes 24/7.
The number of images at the bottom right 1234/15,000 << is the number on the left (1234) the number of shots that are being removed OR kept of the total (15,000)?

Thanks

Hi yes I did, the difference between hi and low and the relationship between sliders is a bit vague.
What would you say is the best position of them to remove night time shots only?

There is no absolute positions that I can tell you, it really depends on your sequence. Normally as you drag the "low" slider from one parameter to the right, the "high" slider will automatically come to the left. This will narrow the bandwdith in which the remaining images will be, eliminating the peaks.
If you unlink the sliders for Luminance (by removing the tick on the infinity sign) and only drag the "low" slider to the right, you will eliminate dark images only. Observe the blue curve, the more you drag the "low" slider to the right, the more "dark" peaks will be eliminated.
Basically this is the idea. It works similar with contrast an hue. But if you only want to eliminate dark images, the luminance filter is the one to go for.
