Panorama Stitcher ‘Hugin’ 2018.0 Beta 1 Released

December 10, 2017

The 2018.0 release of the open-source Hugin Panorama photo stitcher reached the first beta release a day ago.

Changes in Hugin 2018.0 include:

  • Several improvements for optimizer tabs (mark deselected images, allow changing optimizer variables for all selected images at once, option to ignore line cp)
  • hugin_stacker: New tool to stack overlapping images.
  • Hugin: Added option to disable auto-rotation of images in control point and mask editor.
  • Nona, verdandi and hugin_stacker can now write BigTIFF images (for files >4 GB).
  • Added expression parser to GUI: This allows to manipulate several image variables at once. (This is the same as running pto_var –set from the command line.)
  • Add user-defined assistant and expose it in the GUI. It allows to set up different assistant stategies without the need to recompiling. Provide also some examples (scanned images, multi-row panoramas with orphaned images, single-shot panorama
    cameras).
