autopano-complete - Generate panorama project file from images.
autopano-complete.sh [options] -o output.pto image1 image2 [image3
Generate panorama project from image files. First, generate temporary
keypoint files for each of the image files given on the command line.
Then match the image files to identify the same features in two or more
images. Generate a PTO panorama project file from the matching results.
(Programs such as hugin can read it.)
image The image files to read in. They can be in any common format,
including JPEG, PNG and TIFF.
Set PTO panorama output file (mandatory).
Set downscale resolution. If any of the image dimensions exceed
this side, the image is resized so the longer side of the images
will be this size. This is a preprocessing step and no file on
disc will be changed. Use this when memory is rare.
The maximum number of control points to generate per image pair.
When more than the given number of pairs are found, only the
best are kept.
Do not use the RANSAC algorithm (RANdom Sample Consensus), which
does use geometric correllation to remove unwanted matches. Use
this when uncommon lens geometries are used, such as fisheye
In any case, wipe the table - the previously generated keypoint
files - and then generate the keypoint files from the images and
match. If no clean is used, then previous image keypoint files
are also used for matching.
Output a concise usage help.
No bugs known, if you find any, please send a bug report to me. I will
try to fix it. An old, obselete version of this script exists with
similar functionality, see autopano-complete.old
