tufuse blended tiff

Post by rickb » Fri Jun 26, 2009 4:10 pm

I am trying to do exposure blending using tufuse within PTassembler.
Several jpg input images with diff exposures.
PTassem aligns them fine.
choosing the tufuse blending option to a single blended tiff

the indiv output tiffs are each fine,
but the blended tiff is bad... 1K file size, invalid tiff
The setup and prefs seem OK, I tried 8 bit and 16 bit output.

any ideas?
thanks,
-Rick

Hard to say without any more information. There are numerous possibilities. Can you provide the information outlined in the Bugs and Problems section of the help file?

Thanks,

Max

OK.
I hope I'm not doing something stupid.

That setting instructs PTAssembler not to perform any stacking. Are you sure that you configured PTAssembler to perform stacking (on the Processing Options screen)?

Yes, perhaps the saved file did not have the option set, because I was trying different options. But when it fails to create a correct blending tiff, I had the stacking set as follows:
on step 5...
stitching/blending/stacking options
I checked stack images that are part of a defined stacking group
it says that stacking will be performed by tufuse
I had tufuse set for blending exposures.

then I tell it to create the blended tiff in step 5.
The individual tiff files are good, but the blended tiff file is bad (1KB, a binary file not ASCII)

Tufuse Pro works fine (with the watermark) BTW.

thanks,

If I can see it fail on my machine, I can probably figure out what happened. If not, then I'm just guessing.

Can you send me the exact settings you used, and the images? My e-mail address is printed four times on this page.

Thanks,

Max

Thanks for the offer.
It seems like you already are putting so much time into these tools...

First I'll scale down the photos, because 30MB is over the size limit for my email.
Then I'll try it with the lower res images.
If that doesn't work, then the files I send will at least be smaller.

thanks,
- Rick
