Software for yaw, pitch and roll
« on: October 15, 2014, 09:36:58 AM »

Can I ask arch shooters what software are people using for correcting yaw, pitch and roll? I have been using Photoshop but seem to remember someone mentioning that the specialist pano software is better. I have tried Hugin but it seems to want a second image to generate any changes but I only need to work on individual images. Thanks KP.

Hi KP,

AFAIK you can adjust the Yaw/Pitch/Roll of a single image in Hugin. Just load it and in the fast panorama preview (move/drag tab) select image '0' or 'All' and set the numerical values, and/or drag the image.

To adjust for keystoning in a single image, just add 'vertical' control point types with one end in the left-hand preview, and the second end on the right-hand preview of the same image (the control point type is shown as vert. Line). Add multiple (at least 2 control point pairs are needed for keystone correction, otherwise it just rotates to vertical) vertical control points for different positions/sides of the image, and do the same for horizontal control points.

Cheers,
Bart

You can do pretty much anything with Hugin. I think it makes coffee too. It's just not so easy to figure it out...

Realised just after i was typing. Was hoping it was a more intuitive version of Hugin! It doesn't seem straight forward at all. Is there nothing purpose built for adjusting distortion etc for arch images?

'dxo viewpoint', or simply your usual raw converter ?

DXO Viewpoint looks worth a try. Thanks.

Just downloading a trail version of Viewpoint, Frederic have you had much experience using it? The video looks promising for correcting misaligned images. Hopefully its better than Lightroom which I find fine for simple horizontal or vermeil distortion but limited if something needs more work.

Not much, but I did use it to correct the distortion and proportions of extreme wide angle shots (14-18mm).
Now for single pic I rely on Capture One tools, and when making panos with PTgui you are given control over yaw/pitch/roll too.

I don't do stitching, but for single shot images, the perspective correction tools in capture one pro works fine for me.

At a quick look DXO seems to only work on jpegs which is guess isn't ideal. Does Capture 1 give more than Lightroom in correction options?

Horizon and multi point key stoning.
Download a trial version and give it a shot. The tools are rather easy to use.

years ago I used panotools. One can do amazing point of view transforms with it. Defish etc.

Let's just say, ever since I started using C1P, I haven't processed a single image on LR.
