Re: [PanoToolsNG] Announcement: PTStitcherNG0.4b
- Thank you, Helmut, and also a happy new 2010 to you and all readers of
Stitcher works fine in compabitility mode on Win7. I was able to run the
stitcher without compability mode once but subsequent calls crashed the
application again (i noticed that with the first version but this time i
was able to replay the behavior).
PTGui integration is now possible, that's very nice! However, i still
think that the TIFF_m paramter is differently interpreted as in other
panotools(-compatible) versions: AFAIK all stitchers produce multiple
TIFF files while StitcherNG writes a single multipage file.
Speed is blazingly fast. I think i can observe a significant speed
increase from the -d parameter. The timings for a test panorama (8x12MP
images, 12000x6000 output) are:
- 427 sec for PTGui stitcher
- 77,6 sec for StitcherNG_cpu (Win95 compatible, 1 core)
- 17,6 sec for StitcherNG_cuda (24 times faster than PTGui, tried it
several times as i couldn't believe)
- I am a new Hugin User and I have encountered a vexing problem.
I have a six sequence set of long distance pictures taken in Alaska of the Wrangel-St Elias National Park. When I use CS3 to stitch the result is fairly pleasing (color and exposure wise).
However, when I used Hugin and select optimize "Exposure", the "Blend" across the sequence is weird. The anchor pic (pic 1) is VERY much lighter than the other five and there is a obvious blend seam. The exposure for pictures 2 thru 6 are uniform (somewhat dark, but uniform). The exposure for pic 1 is pleasing but is much brighter than the other five.
