How to use live stitching function of ToupView Software

 

Live stitching function allows real time stitching in video mode. Users could get an overview of the stitching area and the stitching results could be updated immediately when frames in video mode is updating. Automatic alignment and blend is applied during operation to achieve the best performance.

1

Click the camera name in the camera list to get the video.

2

Click the stitching button in the tool bar to open the live stitching window.

The area marked with green rectangle shows the real time video and the other area is the stitching results. Please pay attention to the rectangle. When the rectangle is green, the stitching function is working as expected and users could move the slides. If the rectangle’s color is red or yellow, users should stop moving slides. If the color is still red or yellow, users should move the slides back a little bit to the area where the rectangle turns into green. After the rectangle is green, users could continue the operation.

6

Click the stitching button again to stop the live stitching function. The stitching results will be cropped from the background and the result image will be generated automatically.

Note:

1

A camera with global shutter sensor is preferred to get the best performance. The distortion of the image taken with rolling shutter may results in failure or unsatisfying results.

2

It is strongly recommended that the auto exposure function is closed during the stitching operation to guarantee the unique lightness.

3

High speed camera is preferred to achieve the best experience. Shorten the exposure time to guarantee the high frame rate if the illumination is strong enough.

4

Users should move the slides in proper speed and guarantee that the camera is in focus. When the rectangle in the stitching window is getting red or yellow, users should stop or move back a little bit until the rectangle is green. The red or yellow rectangle during stitching operation means failure or warning on the stitching or alignment. The reasons may results from the fact that the slides is moving too fast, in which case the computer is not quick enough to finish the calculating, or the details of the content is not very clear for alignment.

5

Stop the stitching window first before closing it.
