| I've compiled clens on OSX, got that working with nona instead of
| PTstitcher and wrote a script to get it all working nicely so I can
| just right click an image and defish my fisheye pictures and end up
| with a rectilinear image. However, clens doesn't seem to take any
| other image format aside from jpeg. Does anyone know if there is a
| reason why clens doesn't handle TIFF's? Its been a while since I've
| programmer in C (read: high school 7 years ago), but I see the file
| format input check in main.c, just not sure if there's a reason that
| it can't handle TIFF's.
I just checked the source code. It is a "feature" that it only
supports JPEgs. it actually checks if the input file is a jpeg, but
there is no reason why it would not work for TIFFs. It probably needs
5-10 lines of code.
BUt I remember correctly clens has been superseded by another tool,
but I just can't remember what its name is. Can anybody help me here?
| (If there is an open source alternative to clens that can handle TIFF
| for input, I'd be open to using that, I prefer a CLI program.)
