enfuse is a command-line program used to merge different exposures of the same scene to produce an image that looks very much like a tonemapped image (without the halos) but requires no creation of an HDR image. Therefore it is much simpler to use and allows the creation of very large multiple exposure panoramas.

enfuse is based on a paper by Tom Mertens, Jan Kautz and Frank Van Reeth. The implementationwas done by Andrew Mihal (developer of enblend) - http://research.edm.uhasselt.be/~tmertens/exposure_fusion/

enfuse is currently in beta and available with the development version of enblend.


Usage: enfuse [options] -o OUTPUT INPUTS

Common options:
 -h                Print this help message
 -l number         Number of levels to use (1 to 29)
 -o filename       Write output to file
 -v                Verbose
 -w                Blend across -180/+180 boundary
 --compression=COMP Set compression of the output image.
                   Valid values for compression are:
                   For TIFF files: LZW, DEFLATE
                   For JPEG files: 0-100

Extended options:
 -b kilobytes      Image cache block size (default=2MiB)
 -c                Use CIECAM02 to blend colors
 -g                Associated alpha hack for Gimp (ver. < 2) and
 -f WIDTHxHEIGHT+x0+y0   Manually set the size and position of the
                         output image.
                         Useful for cropped and shifted input TIFF
                         images, such as those produced by Nona.

 -m megabytes      Use this much memory before going to disk

Fusion options:
 --wExposure       Weight given to well-exposed pixels.
 --wContrast       Weight given to high-contrast pixels
 --wSaturation     Weight given to highly-saturated pixels
