Read Me

PTmender
--------

This is a rewrite of PTStitcher. It has most of its functionality (see
below) and it should be (for most people) a drop in replacement for
PTstitcher. 


----------------------------------------------------------------------
HOW TO HELP.

* Man pages for PTmender and PTblender.

* Create test cases.  We need to create some test cases that we can
   use to verify if PTmender works _exactly_ as PTStitcher. This will
   require some panorama scripts and the images, and some scripts to
   verify the results.

* See TODO list and WHAT IS NOT GOING TO BE SUPPORTED for more ideas.


----------------------------------------------------------------------

TODO:

* Testing. I am sure there are defects in the implementation that need
  to be spotted and then removed.

* Fully support 16 bit images. I don't quite remember what is done so
  far, but I am planning to support 16 bit images in all the stages of
  PTmender and PTblender.

* Improving seam computation. The current algorithm is very poor.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT IS NOT GOING TO BE SUPPORTED

These are features present in PTstitcher that I am not interesting in
adding to PTmender. But I'll be happy to accept patches for them:

* The following output formats:

  WTVR
  IVR_java
  VRML
  IVR
  PAN
  

* 16bit Multi-layer PSD output. We do not know the format of these
  types of PSD files. Either use 8 bit images, or generate TIFFs and
  read them into photoshop.
  

----------------------------------------------------------------------

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

-s     Sort image files. I assume that the processing of the files
       (by default) is in the command line order. This overrides it.

-q     Quiet execution. Do not display progress messages during
       execution.

-o     Specify the name of the result panorama file.

-f     Specify the name of the script file.

The program assumes that the last file specified in the command line
with a .txt extension is the script (even if the -f option is
specified). This means that if the script has no .txt extension it is
treated as an image (in that case use -f option).

If a command line argument is a directory, any files in it are
processed (non-recursively) as if they were all specified in the
command line.

Any other command line argument that is a file is treated as an image.


If the command line does not have any image in it, then the script is
processed and any references to images in it are processed.

If the command line does not have a script file, then the user is
asked for it.
