I am trying to stack several pictures -of the same place, from the same spot- with different subjects that are present only during a short period of time. Hugin allows me to stack a very limited number of images and because of this the subjects appear transparent.
This is an example of what is happening. Three subjects (let’s say the lenses are people) at the same place (let’s say the table is a park).
I am assuming this is because each subject (lens) is 1/3 of the resulting picture and my uneducated guess tells me I have to use several images of the same subject at the same place, but I can only fit 1,2 or 3 pictures of each (3,6 or 9 pictures in total) in the black area. If I use more than 9 images I can’t see them and the result is garbage.
I am doing the following:
*Click on Load Images (that are then shown in the black area)
*Select Lens Type (Equirectangular seems the logical choice)
*Click on Align (wait for the assistant to run)
*Click on Create Panorama
*Select the Exposure Fused From Stacks box
*Switch to .jpeg
*Wait while it stitches
Should I be using more than four images of each subject?
How can I work with 20 or 30 images if they are crammed in the black area and are indistinguishable?
How can I make the subject appear solid and not like ghosts?
I am willing to try doing this on rawtherapee, darktable, digikam or other software. Hugin has been what I use for this because I accidentally found this feature while trying to stitch a panorama.
