    Re: Stack your photos with MacroFusion

    Thank you dhor, it works now.

    I used MacroFusion for stacking focus (deeper DOF) but the result is quite blurry, I am not too sure what parameters, what options and how to configure the software to get sharp result.

    I did try ALE, same result, ALE just take much longer time.

    Re: Stack your photos with MacroFusion

    Hello,

    I'm getting this when trying to load 16bit tiff's (which I use for Luminance):

    Will use all the powers of your CPU!
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/macrofusion", line 406, in ajout
    FenOuv=Fenetre_Ouvrir(self.liststoreimport,1)
    File "/usr/bin/macrofusion", line 686, in __init__
    Gui.put_files_to_the_list(self.fichiers)
    File "/usr/bin/macrofusion", line 627, in put_files_to_the_list
    im = Image.open(fichier)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PIL/Image.py", line 1980, in open
    raise IOError("cannot identify image file")
    IOError: cannot identify image file


    This may be a PIL problem? I'm new to Python errors, but googling doesn't return any clues.

    That said, I'm still new to HDR's but I loaded some jpg's in to Macrofusion and the default output was by far better than what I could get out of Luminance! Excellent work!

    Thanks all for tests and opinions.

    I've uploaded to PPA new version 0.7.3. Well, it's rather cosmetic changes, but it seems, that finally Macrofusion is able to open 8/16bit TIFF. I hope, it'll work

    Re: Stack your photos with MacroFusion

    Coming back to an old thread here.

    I've switched to 12.04 beta, and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this combination. For focus stacking I'd need Hugin for alignment, Enfuse for stacking and then Macrofusion to get a gui, am I right? It seems I can get them all from Software center, without adding other repositories or anything. Will it work? Or should I just try and see? I'm asking beforehand, because I already ended up reinstalling once

    edit - apparently Macrofusion can do alignment, as well. What else did I get wrong?

    Re: Stack your photos with MacroFusion

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and did all this:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install macrofusion
    and got this message:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package macrofusion
    What did I do wrong?

    UPDATE: I found a .DEB file here, which works fine: http://sourceforge.net/projects/macr...ofusion-0.7.3/

    Re: Stack your photos with MacroFusion

    Yes "it just works" for hdr stacking, but now I'm trying to make a focus stack... I have ten pictures taken at about 4x magnification so depth of field is rather shallow, and the result is an evenly blurry picture that isn't remotely sharp at any point even as the individual pictures have good sharpness at the focus point. It's as if the pictures were fused entirely, and not using only the focused parts, which is the intended outcome. Can you offer any advice on this?

    Re: Stack your photos with MacroFusion

    Checking the force hard mask option seems to help with the blurryness (judging by the preview), but either the computation time goes up like crazy or it hangs, I'm not sure - but after 18+ hours it seemed to be still working which seems a bit excessive?

    Anyone here uses this for focus stacks? What's your experience and what settings do you use?

    18 hours is not right definitely. Your method is OK (hardmask, align, autocrop), but I've check what's wrong with hardmask.
