WinSeis Turbo 1.5/WinSeis Lite Frequently Asked Questions

1) What is the difference between WinSeis Lite and WinSeis Turbo?

WinSeis Lite is a "lite" version of WinSeis Turbo. See table below for a comparison of features.

2) What are the data input limits for WinSeis Lite?

Number of traces per shot record = 24.
Number of samples per trace = 4096.

3) SORT worked with my test data, now I can't get it to work with my regular data.

The SORT command works, but only with very small data sets. To fix the problem will require major reprogramming of WinSeis, so that change will be made before we release WinSeis 2. To deal with the problem now we provide WSORT, a separate module, to finish the sorting.

Build your sort deck using WINSORT. Include only the commands necessary for sorting. When you have done that you then have the DEK file in the Command Editor window. Pull down the File... menu. One of the options is "Run WSORT." When you select this option, the sort is executed according to the parameters you have set.

4) I just installed WinSeis Turbo (or WinSeis Lite) from the CD and tried to run it. I get the message "Your license has expired. Do you want to register?" What do I do now?

Feature Comparison

WinSeis Lite is a compact version of WinSeis Turbo. It is designed specifically for those who need only basic tools in processing shallow seismic data and do not need any advanced and more involved handling of data. In comparison to the Turbo version, it is light in both price and number of processing modules available. It is, however, heavy enough to crunch your seismic data for what you want to see in most circumstances. The following compares the modules available in WinSeis Lite and WinSeis Turbo.
