Batch Stitcher is a component of hugin that provides functionality to stitch multiple projects in a batch queue. Its goal is to make stitching of multiple projects faster. The process of stitching multiple projects is simplified using a queue of projects. User can add/edit/delete projects in the queue.

Hugin Batch Stitcher consists of a list of projects. Projects in the list are ordered in sequential order. By default, the list is reinstated every time you open the application. What is more, entire queue of projects can be saved and reopened later using buttons Clear Batch, Open Batch, Save Batch.

Flag options

Batch process is also influenced by the following check boxes:

  • parallel execution: Execute stitching of projects in the list parallel rather than in sequential order. Check this only if you are certain your computer is up for the task of stitching multiple projects at the same time.
  • delete .pto files: After stitching of each projects ends, Batch Stitcher will delete the project file of the currently processed project. Be careful, deleted files are lost!
  • overwrite always: Always(for each project) overwrite output filename if it exists. Otherwise, you will get a dialog box whether you want to overwrite files or not.
  • Shutdown when done: Turn off computer when batch process ends.
