matchpoint - next generation control point generator
matchpoint [options] image1.jpg output.key
MatchPoint is a next generation CP generator. The result of a GSoC2007
project SoC2007_project_Feature_Descriptor. Currently it offers only
keypoint detection but not matching (matching was part of other GSoC 07
project that was not carried out) and can currently be used only as a
replacement for generatekeys from autopano-sift or autopano-sift-C.
A current version of matchpoint can be obtained via the hugin project.
Goal of this MatchPoint is to create a complete control point suite
that will be used by hugin as a replacement(or at least an alternative)
to existing autopano suites.
If you want to use MatchPoint in the process of creating panoramic
images now (when not all features are implemented) you will have to use
// first extract features from the first image and output them to the
MatchPoint image1.jpg image1.key
// for second image:
MatchPoint image2.jpg image2.key
// match features from the two generated files using autopano:
autopano project.pto image1.key image2.key
// open the project file in hugin:
-v verbose output
-t generate keypoint file for matlab test suite(file name is
generated using formula: image1.jpg.key)
