  1. hi all,

    we're writing some helper python and realised that in a RAW workflow the original-captures would contain the raw originals.

    But then we'd like to convert them to 16 bit Tiff before processing. Current practice would have those in the jpeg-exports dir which is slightly misleading but we could stick to that to avoid having yet another dir if raws are involved.

    So my questions are:

    1) would you like original-captures to contact the captured images with their original name? (eg ND?_xxxx.NEF)

    2) for raw images are you happy to have tiffs in jpeg-exports ? (actually they can be deleted after processing to save space but...)

    3) if you choose a crop before processing - where is a standard place to store the x,y,w,h for that?

    4) Some people will use image sets of targets like grey cards for corrections - we should probably have a standard calib_images dir for those!



  2. We have a binary version of our rewritten ptmfitter (by John Cupitt) here for Windows (Mac one coming soon!) find it in:




    it still prints the same things - and has the same parameters - to maintain compatibility with the ancient ptmfitter ;-) But it copes with the large iomages we now use.


    for reference it builds a 128 36Mpix image set in 39s on my PC. We also have a friendly Windows helper if you use it on windows a lot - see RTI Processor.




    ps I know this looks like a very old thread but it has the right name!

  3. to avoid starting a new thread I'll reply to my post ;-)


    We just installed two new systems in Arras, France - and CNRS Paris - both for Archaeology finds.




    both running on Canon SLRs.

    If you use Windows (rare I know!) we have a card importer that makes all the right sub-folders for you, see https://custom-imaging.co.uk/software/

    Also a Windows-helper to run ptmfit.

  4. Hi all,

    we just completed over a year of development on a geodesic dome system and installed the first on in the University of York. We're still writing up the details but there are some images etc on our website. Headlines are:

    • 65 1300 lumen LEDs
    • relatively portable - as it unbolts into a box of struts and some aluminium poles
    • quite fast - about 65s per capture
    • takes different cameras as long as they have an external wired shutter release
    • doesn't need a laptop to drive it - as long as you can focus and set camera exposure its standalone
