CP detector quality
The default value is inherited from the value used for the initial detection of the panorama.
- Detection Quality:
- Low is a good compromise between control points quality and detection speed.
- Standard (default) increases control points density but slows down detection speed. In the case of a set of images presenting a small overlapping ratio this option can enhance the detection quality on the overall panorama. It is also used with panoramas presenting a lot a bracketing.
- High very slow, mostly reserved to desperate cases (… worth a try before giving up).
- Control Points / Image Pair : This is the number of control points used per image pair. Influences the number of control points exported to PanoTools as well as the overall detection quality.
This tool performs a geometrical analysis and tries to find similarities between the source images overlapping inside the panorama. This analysis can be performed in three different ways:
- We only want to find new control points for overlapping images that do not share any control points.
- We want to find new control points for all overlapping image pairs and add them the already existing control points.
- We want to find new control points for all overlapping image pairs and replace the existing control point by the new ones.
Bad control point cleaner
- Keep only control points below this error (RMS): Useful when only quality matters.
- Keep only the N best control points: Useful when only the number of control points per image matters.
- Remove links over this error (RMS): Useful when only links quality matters.
