As some of you may already know, I have developed a
faster version of pano12.dll. Speedup is usually at least 5x, but it will be
slower if using morphing: I am still working on it. You can find a test version
Since I prefer to mantain compatibility the new
version does not have any speedup by default. At the moment the speedup is
activated by an external text file that has to be present in the images folder.
I did so because I was not able to find a way to do it using the stitcher
Jim Watters has been so kind to explain me how to
do it, so now I want to modify the code so that it is possible to activate the
speedup in the PTStitcher script.
I think that there are two ways to do
- I can add a new letter, for example "f", to the
"m" line of the script. So "f0" could mean maximum speedup and "f1" could mean
lower speedup for morphed images.
- I can add an offset to the value if the "i" letter
in the "m" line. For example an offset of 30 might mean fast speedup and an
offset of 60 might mean slower speedup. So "i3" would mean sinc256 without
speedup, "i32" would mean spline36 with maximum speedup and "i60" would mean
poly3 with lower speedup.
I think that this will not have a great impact to
users, since both solutions can be easily implemented in the graphical
front-ends, but I would like to know which solution you prefer, so that I will
