Download What’s New in StarLog 8.8

At WellSight we are continually adding new features and enhancements to our products. Version 8 represents a substantial improvement in usability and modernization of our products, without changing their familiar, easy to use interfaces.

StarLog (StripLog, MudLog, and HorizontalLog)

New Features
    • Formation Top Layer: In StarLog, Formation Tops are automatically added to new default logs and can be added to existing logs in Layout Designer.
      •  Tops may be imported to the layers from Excel, ODS spreadsheets, or delimited ASCII files.
    • Lithology Boundary Fill: In HorizontalLog, Lithology can easily be drawn and edited by filling the area between boundary lines.
      • Select Multiple Vertices and perform certain actions (delete, add segments, drag, align depths, align segment dip angles and extend) them all at once.
    • Text Formatting Properties allow you to change Text Font, Style, Size and Color in Geological Descriptions and other text layers and Depth, Image and Survey Layers.
    • Fill Data Curves: Data curves can be filled cumulatively or using threshold values or curve data cross-overs for any two curves.
    • Gas Ratio Curves: for Character, Wetness & Balance.
    • View Track Headings: Track Headings can now be displayed on the screen while viewing and editing our logs.
    • A log file can now have multiple Core Header sections which can be exported and printed.
    • New Image Layer allows you to quickly add images by drag and drop.
    • Images can now be imported from jpg, gif, bmp, tif and png files.
    • Depth Tracks can now show MD, TVD and SS depths.
    • Higher Depth Scales include 1:240 and up to 1:12,000
    • Export Color Fill and Floating Symbol Layers as data curves.
    • Errors in LAS data files are now handled better when importing curve and survey data:
      • Minor formatting problems are fixed automatically.
      • Errors that cannot be fixed are listed for the entire file so that they can all be fixed at once.
    • Updated Help System and Tutorial.

User Interface Improvements

  • StarLog’s appearance has been modernized to use the style of the Windows version on which it is running.
