Adding .fit format to future ICE release RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to suggest adding the .fit format to the photo files supported by ICE. It is a common format used in astrophotography.

  • Thanks for the suggestion.  Though you have made a perfectly reasonable request, we (the developers of ICE) don't really work on image file formats -- we rely on the Windows Imaging Component (WIC) to read image files.  It's an extensible system, and therefore ICE will happily read a .FIT file if you can find or develop a WIC-compatible codec for the FITS file format.  Please see this page for more information about the WIC codecs that ICE uses: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/ice/codecs.htm

    Sorry I don't have a more helpful answer!
