Enblend Project Page

overlays TIFF images so as to make the seam invisible. Works with 8, 16 or 32 bit (HDR floating point) per channel images.

Works as a plug-in for PTGui, hugin, PTMac or PTAssembler. Works also standalone.

For Windows and Linux. Mac OSX version (xblend) is available from Kevin Kratzke

If you are working with multi-row panoramics, (for example three rows of eight pictures each), you can greatly speed up the processing by manually feeding the first row of images (with the -a parameter which assembles non-adjacent images first), then the second row of images, and finally the third row of images. Next, feed these three assembled rows into Enblend again using the -a parameter and you will have a fully blended pano in a fraction of the time.

I have written batch files for the Windows platform that do this automatically. Feel free to email me at markdfink_AT_northernlight_DOT_net if you are interested.

Also, other parameters worth noting are:

  • -w to wrap the blending process around the 360 degree boundary so you don't end up with a harsh transition at the +180 and -180 degree seam.
  • -o to force Enblend to use an output filename of your choice
  • -v to see the details of what is happening rather than staring at a blank screen

Enblend supports cropped TIFF input files.
