Cross-platform library behind Panorama Tools and other photo stitchers
This is the pano13 library, part of the Panorama Tools by Helmut Dersch of the University of Applied Sciences Furtwangen.
Also included with the library are
- PTOptimizer, a command-line tool for optimizing control points.
- panoinfo, a command-line tool for querying the library version.
The panorama tools are mainly used to build panoramic images from a set of overlapping images. The usability extends beyond “just” building panoramas by far though. You can, for instance, use them to render an average of multiple images to broaden the dynamic range of the images or average out noise. You can also build object movies with them, morph between images and much more.
