Image Stacking for Noise Reduction

I was so impressed with Holger’s LUA script I did this week’s episode on it. Not sure if Holger is part of this community, but I sure appreciate the effort.

Fantastic Harry!

In step 2 you say “exivtool” but I think you mean “exiftool.”

Ha… fixed :wink:

@harry_durgin is the script working for you everytime. Im getting errors on and off when using it for hdr. Cant seem to getbit to use 16bit tif. Have to use 8 bit but still get random failures

I haven’t tried all the options, but I have been using 16bit tif without issues. Could it be an issue with a package needing updating?

Here’s a better link to the author

I read about a 16th century cult which went around slapping people with a large trout whenever they wrote of some error without actually pasting the exact error message. Good thing we don’t live in the dark ages anymore!


I didnt ask for help here on the issue. I simply said I was having issues. If you read up further you will see I mentioned the errors I was getting and also that i was going to put up a error report in the correct location.

Resurrecting this as I just finished the first pass on a script to add HDRMerge as an option under “Selected Images” module in darktable’s lighttable. I’m working off windows, so right now that’s what it supports. I’ve asked the devs for support on the email list for some aid regarding a few things, but hopefully we’ll have something that can begin testing eventually.

(I’ve also hacked up Holger’s enfuse_pro in an attempt to get it running on windows. Which it now does do, but it isn’t pretty for the time being. Needs a lot more testing on the various features supported)
