       align_image_stack - Align overlapping images for HDR or focus stack creation


       align_image_stack [options] input files


       align_image_stack is used for the alignment of slightly misaligned images or for the
       registration of a stereo images pair.  When several differently exposed images are taken
       in the process of creating a High Dynamic Range image, the images are not perfectly
       aligned, and the quality of the HDR image created will suffer from this.
       align_image_stack uses the tools available to hugin to optimize the roll, pitch and yaw,
       as well as some parameters of the lens geometry, to align the images.


       Modes of operation:

       -p file
           Output .pto file (useful for debugging, or further refinement)

       -a prefix
           Output aligned images as prefix_xxxx.tif

       -o output
           Align images and merge them to HDR, generate output.hdr


       -v  Verbose, print progress messages. Repeat for higher verbosity

       -e  Assume input images are full frame fish eye (default: rectilinear)

       -t num
           Remove all control points with an error higher than num pixels (default: 3)

           Correlation threshold for identifying control points (default: 0.9)

       -f HFOV
           Approximate horizontal field of view of input images, use if EXIF info not complete

       -m  Optimize field of view for all images, except for first. Useful for aligning focus
           stacks with slightly different magnification.

       -d  Optimize radial distortion for all images, except for first.

       -i  Optimize image center shift for all images, except for first.

       -x  Optimize X coordinate of camera position

       -y  Optimize Y coordinate of camera position

       -z  Optimize Z coordinate of camera position

       -S  Assume stereo images - allow horizontal shift of control points.

       -A  Align stereo window - assumes -S

       -P  Align stereo window with pop-out effect - assumes -S

       -C  Auto crop the image to the area covered by all images

       -c num
           Number of control points (per grid) to create between adjacent images (default: 8)

       -l  Assume linear input files

       -s scale
           Scale down image by 2^scale (default: 1 [2x down-sampling])

       -g gsize
           Break image into a rectangular grid (gsize x gsize) and attempt to find num control
           points in each section (default: 5 [5x5 grid])

           Try to load distortion information from lens database

           Use NUM threads

           Use GPU for remapping

       -h  Display help summary.
