This video shows a sneak preview of Hugin’s newest feature – a fast panorama preview window.
It is the result of James Legg three months Google Summer of Code 2008 project, mentored by Pablo d’Angelo.
I’ve documented the changes necessary to the Hugin SDK to build with fast preview.
It requires a GPU works very well with the low end GPUs that have been integrated in chipsets for a few years now, including Intel’s GMA950 that is on my new Atom motherboard (not that I will use such a low powered CPU as a stitching engine).
My apology for the bad quality screencast. Edit: the quality of my first screencast has been improved with the help of other Google Summer of Code mentors from organizations that are professionals of encoding and playing video. I also moved from Google Video to Video which at this time is much better.
