      Hi

      I like to automate my workflow to generate new panoramas. I found a lot of information how to automate on the wiki but they all have one big disadvantage for me: I have to collect all pictures out a a folder to stitch them together.

      I imagine that I just start a script in a folder which contains all of my pictures from a trip (lets say 1000 pictures in total. 500 Single shots and the other 500 are parts of maybe 40 different panoramas). Than it should detect automatically which picture is part of a panorama and stitch it together.

      Have any of you tried this once already, or has someone an idea which tools i should use?

      In worst case I could write a script which checks the orientation of the images and the recording time. All images which are part of the panorama should have the same orientation (in my case they are 99% portrait) and the time between to pictures must be short. But this is not so elegant. It would be much cooler if it detects the number of matching points on two pictures and if the number is high enough the picture is part of a panorama if not the actual panorama is finished and could be created.

      I hope it is clear about what I mean. Any input is welcome!

      Regards,
      Jonas

        If you check PTgui Batch builder you have all options to separate images.
        Unless you are taking each panorama with same time after each other as the single images in them.

          This won t help you now, but in the future, try creating a new folder on your camera for each pano. I do that with my Canon and it GREATLY simplifies sorting

                Hi Jonas,

                Hugin's batch processor does this: open PTBatcherGUI and from the menu
                choose File: Search directory for...: Images

                see also
                <http://wiki.panotools.org/PTBatcherGUI#Image_sets_.28create_project_files.29>

                The decision process is described here, the next step (searching for CPs
                etc.) can also be automated.

                Cheers,
                Carl

                it s a good idea, mark. I wonder how many people know you can create folders on your canon camera. it is a bit hacky to be sure, but it is very useful
