PyMovie Resources

PyMovie is a stellar occultation aperture photometry program. PyOTE is a simpler version of ROTE programmed in Python.  Both programs were designed to work together and were developed by Bob Anderson.

Install instructions:



  • “gzip was not found on your system” error when starting PyMovie in Windows. On some installations of PyMovie in Windows, this error message appears when starting PyMovie. You can safely ignore this error – it will not cause problems with PyMovie. However, if you want to eliminate this error, you must find the directory where gzip.exe is installed (possibly under the Anaconda directory), then add this gzip directory to the Path environment variable. WARNING: Changing the path variable can affect other programs in Windows, so you should only make this change if you are confident in your ability to make this change.
