nona is a drop-in replacement for PTStitcher and is part of Hugin. There is a nona_gui version that provides the same dialog boxes as the Windows/Mac versions of PTStitcher.

Advantages

  • Unlike PTStitcher, nona has full source-code availability, this means that it can be used on many more platforms such as OS X, Linux x86_64, linux powerpc, Solaris and IRIX.
  • nona doesn't perform expensive transformation calculations for unused areas of output images. For panoramas consisting of many source photos this can speed things up greatly.
  • nona implements vignetting correction at the stitching stage.
  • Nona supports HDR images

Disadvantages

(Note: this is the situation as of January 2006, please correct this page if you know this has changed)

  • Automatic color/brightness correction isn't supported, though using PTblender and enblend in the toolchain now solves this problem with superior results.
  • Morph to fit control points are not supported.
