Hugin has released version 2019.0.0.
Added raw import: It converts the RAW images to TIFF using a raw converter. This can be done by dcraw (requires additional exiftool), RawTherapee or darktable. These programs needs to be installed externally.
I tried this new feature as follows:
Hugin opened the following form
I chose darktable
Darktable converted images to tif and they opened to Huginin
I used hugin as usual _MG_8061 - _MG_8069.pto (7.3 KB)
I adjust the resulting panorama in darktable _MG_8061 - _MG_8069.tif.xmp (4.7 KB)
The experiment was successful.
I missed to be able to adjust RAWs before they convert to tif.
I have in darktable plugin hugin.lua. When I first open RAW-files in darktable, I can adjust images before converting them to tif and sending to Hugin.
