Description

Add the possibility to correct slight misalignment between pictures when creating an HDR

I second this feature request, would be very nice to be able to manually compensate for small misalignment of photographs

#3 Updated by Victor Lamoine about 3 years ago

+1 for this feature

It prevents images that are not perfectly aligned from being processed as HDR with dartkable (without using third-party software like Hugin/Luminance HDR).
Even a manual alignment would already be a great improvement :)

#4 Updated by Cherrot Luo almost 3 years ago

+1. Is there a dev plan for this feature?

#5 Updated by Millicent Billette de Villemeur about 2 years ago

I've just test darktable HDR based on a 7 raw bracketing taken without tripod, and the hdr result is unusable.

I hope darktable will include ideally an automatic alignment algorithm in hdr processing, or at least a manual way to do it.

Whatever, thanks for the great already done work. Darktable is awesome !

I really think this feature should have some priority as it would make the HDR function 100 times more useful. My HDRs from Darktable often look strange because in the most cases I don't have a tripod with me and I don't want to invest in expensive software like photomatix :(

It's not even just without a tripod. I shoot with a tripod, but my camera's bracketing doesn't extend beyond ±1 stop. By manually adjusting the knobs for further exposure, my lightweight tripod usually moves just a tad. After using darktable for several years, I've never been able to use the HDR feature because at least one of my photos was misaligned by a little.
