RE: [PanoToolsNG] PTStitcherNG new feature: editing seams
- This seems good for automated setups where you don't need a hand patched in
The content aware seam, seems to be just fine as well.
I'm a little curious as to how it is handling areas with head artifacts. I
haven't seen any issues.
Before I would ensure any head piece was alpha masked.
For non-completely automated stitches, using an input mask doesn't seem to
be as good a work flow as the content aware mode.
Would it be any help to specify per-image masks in conjunction with the
content aware mode or does this mode handle such issues with no problems?
It's a little tough to understand how to set the right seam using your
noblend version overlayed with the indexed mask.. perhaps a better method in
the tutorial would be to use a layered output and go old school with
Then it becomes crystal clear how each seam works with each image since you
can see the result or maybe it leads to further confusion since the masks
aren't a precise analog since they overlap.

Subject: [PanoToolsNG] PTStitcherNG new feature: editing seams
Besides the usual alpha channel methods, PTStitcherNG
offers yet another mode for editing seams. The main advantages are
(a) Seam placement masks may be saved and reused for repeated stitching or
for other projects.
(b) Seams are edited in an intuitive way using almost any graphics editor.
