Reinventing ourselves since 2001


Silymarin 70mg Pills $195.00

August 4, 05

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Hugin iconHugin is a cross-platform GUI that allows the user to “assemble a mosiac of photographs into a complete immersive panorama, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 stitch any series of overlapping pictures and much more.” Having long wanted to create panoramas but lacking the skills and time to make one that looks good, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Hugin seemed like the perfect tool for me.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I went to the Hugin for OSX port page, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 navigated to the download section, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and grabbed a copy. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 After downloading, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I quickly realized that like most open source programs, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 the documentation on how to use Hugin was sorely lacking. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I eventually learned how to do what I wanted to do through trial and error as well as reading numerous tutorials scattered around the web.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 My first headache was getting Autopano to work, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 which is arguably the most important tool that Hugin can use. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 When it works, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Autopano scans through the images you add to Hugin, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 finds where they overlap, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and figures out the best way to stitch the images together. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 The version of Autopano linked within Hugin’s tools folder requires that the Mono environment be installed on your computer to work, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 so pick that up first.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 After installing Mono, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I noticed the following line in Hugin’s explanation on how to get Autopano working:

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 There are two ways of using Autopano-SIFT from HuginOSX. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 One is very easy, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 but does not always work, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and hence not supported. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 The other should work as long as you set up autopano-sift correctly, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 but it involves editing shell script.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 As usually happens, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 the very easy way did not work for me, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 so I had to do some minor shell script editing. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 After following the instructions and properly setting up the AUTOPANO_PATH variable and changing every instance of “generatekeys.exe” to “generatekeys-sd.exe” in the autopano-complete.sh file, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I thought I was ready to rock.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 However, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Hugin quickly let me know that my rocking was yet to happen. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Instead, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 it gave me this error:

Error message from HuginOSX

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I double, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 triple, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and quadruple checked my changes to the shell script, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and I couldn’t find what I’d done wrong. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I completely removed Autopano from my computer and downloaded a new copy to insure I hadn’t inadvertently changed something else.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Eventually, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I realized that Autopano does not like it when the images you’ve added to Hugin have spaces in their path or filename. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 So after changing the folder and file names (in the example case seen in the error message above from “folder with spaces” to “folder”), silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 my images were analyzed and properly linked.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I’m not going to go into the finer points of optimizing the panorama by adding vertical and horizontal lines or any other such thing - I do not have the experience or knowledge of Hugin to be considered a source on such things. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 But with the little experience that I do have, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I was able to successfully turn thirteen separate images into this:

Pano after Hugin and Autopano stiched it up

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 If you click on the image to see a larger version, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 you’ll see that the stitching areas between images are very visible, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and very ugly. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 This is where Enblend comes in. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Although Enblend can be run from within Hugin by selecting the “into a high quality TIFF file” option in Quick Stitcher, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I recommend against it. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Instead, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 export everything as multiple TIFF files.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Once this is complete, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 you can run the images through Enblend via the command line in Terminal. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 An example command would be:

/Applications/HuginOSX/tools/enblend/enblend -v -o \\
/Path/To/Save/Final/Pano/Image.tiff \\
/Path/To/Image/1.tiff \\
/Path/To/Image/2.tiff \\
/And/So/On.tiff

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Enblend takes quite a while (can be many hours depending on image size, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 number of images, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and processor speed) to do it’s stuff, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and I prefer running it through the terminal so I can free up system resources by closing Hugin. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 There isn’t any sort of progress indicator or time remaining information in enblend, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 so I run it with the -v flag (verbose) to keep me from thinking my computer froze.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Enblend looks at the various parts of the TIFF files that overlap, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and figures out how to blend them. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 It will blend images over a wide area in parts of the images where there is little variation in the surrounding area - like in skies and clouds - and will blend images in a very small area where people won’t notice a harsh transition - like in rocky areas or in tree trunks.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 If you compare the image below to the image above, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 you’ll see how great a job enblend does:

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 For the next step, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I played around with enblend’s exported TIFF image in Photoshop. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I used the Stamp tool and Gaussian blur filter almost exclusively, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 and am pretty happy with the results. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 There are some areas I could spend more time in, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 like making the sky areas that I added look more uniform, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 but overall I think it looks pretty good for a first try.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 My biggest gripe with the Hugin is its lack of documentation. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 There are numerous options and optimization modes that are not referenced anywhere in the help. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Sure, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 I can look around online for most of the information, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 but it would save every new user a half-day’s worth of time if all of that information was put in the one place it should be - Hugin’s help file.

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 That’s not to say Hugin and its associated tools are bad, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 because they aren’t - they just lack the information necessary for new users to get up to speed in a short amount of time. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Some statistics from the project:

  • Total pictures stitched: 13
  • Final resolution of panorama: 17964 x 2529 pixels.
  • Total time necessary for me to be at computer: ~30 mins.
  • Total time my computer spent on processing the images: ~6 hours

Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 In case you’re curious, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 the panorama shows what you can see from the top of Mt. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 Rose, silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 the third highest peak in the Lake Tahoe Sierra. Silymarin 70mg pills $195.00 You can see some other pictures from the hike here.

    I was having the same problem with spaces and couldn’t figure out what was going wrong. Thanks for clearing it up!

    You really could have just used photostitch 3.1. It came in the box with your camera and requires about 3 clicks and a hair under 6 hours to stitch pictures.
