       vig_optimize - Optimise photometric parameters


       vig_optimize [options] -o output.pto input.pto


       Photometric calculation can be performed on the command-line with the vig_optimize tool.
       This functionally is configured via 'v' variable lines in the .pto project file in a
       similar way to the autooptimiser tool:

       The camera response curve is simplified using the EMoR sensor model which reduces the
       variation to five numbers, these are the Ra, Rb, Rc, Rd & Re image (i) parameters (the
       default values of 0.0 are equivalent to an 'average' generic sensor).

       The vignetting model is represented by a polynomial with four parameters: Va (this is
       always 1.0 and doesn't need to be optimised) and Vb, Vc & Vd (which default to 0.0 -
       equivalent to no vignetting). The vignetting centre can also be different from the
       geometrical centre, this is specified by Vx & Vy (both default to 0.0).

       Exposure (EV) is represented by a single value Ev (defaults 0.0, equivalent to no-change).

       The white balance is represented by multipliers for the red and blue channels Er and Eb
       (the defaults of 1.0 are equivalent to no-change).

       A typical 'v' variable line configuration would look like this, i.e. optimise camera
       response curve and vignetting for image 0 and exposure for images 1, 2, 3 and 4:

         v Ra0 Rb0 Rc0 Rd0 Re0 Vb0 Vc0 Vd0
         v Ev1 Ev2 Ev3 Ev4

       (vignetting centre and white balance are left unchanged)


       General options:

       -o file
           Write results to output project

       -v  Verbose, print progress messages

       -p n
           Number of points to extract

       -r  Extract random point (faster, but less accurate)

       -s level
           Work on downscaled images, every step halves width and height

       -h  Display help summary.

       Expert and debugging options:

       -i file
           Read corresponding points from file

       -w file
           Dump corresponding points to file
