PTmasker — Compute stitching masks

Synopsis

PTmasker [options] tiff_file(s)

Description

PTmasker computes stitching masks. It implements the ability to increase depth-of-field by stacking images.

Options

-p prefix
Prefix for output files (defaults to masked%4d).
-e feather
Size of the feather (defaults to zero).
-f
Force processing (do not stop on warnings).
-x
Delete source files (use with care).
-q
Quiet run.
-h
Output help summary.
-z
Enable Extended depth of field.
-m

Focus estimation mask type.

0 hard-edged masks, mutually exclusive

1 hard-edged masks, stack of nested masks

2 blended masks, stack of nested masks

2 is default and strongly recommended: This option includes a smoothing computation that seems to help a lot.

-w integer
Focus estimation window size. Only available if -z.

Recommended value is 0.51001114526f image width, e.g. 4 pixels for an 800-pixel image.

Computation cost for focus estimation increases proportional to N^2. Defaults to w4.
-s integer
Smoothing window size. Only available if -z.

Recommended value is 0.50f image width, e.g. 4 pixels for an 800-pixel image.

Computation cost for focus estimation increases proportional to N^2. Defaults to w4.
