The review of today wants to be a rather severe criticism to the plug-in in object. Let us first see what it is.
… the official site
Pandora is one script for Gimp that helps to glue together multiple images to create a panorama.
Pandora can not find the common points to pictures automatically, but automates the most tedious part of the creation of the panorama: create an image sufficiently large in which load different images in separate layers, with initial space and Layer Masks.
And it is on this point that we must put emphasis. Pandora does not find the control points within an image. To create a panorama that can be defined as such you must first find the common points per photo, and Pandora It does not provide un'automatismo even coarse alignment. Among other things, I think this plug-in useless because it does not foresee a minimum of perspective distortion, create a panorama does not mean put photos side by side, involves placing meticulously the various photo points in common, distort the perspective in a way that does not seem to separate photos and “write” l’output finale in un file.
All these operations are still alien to Pandora, and since it is developed by 2003, I would have hoped for something more mature.
For those wanting a true software to create panoramic photos are pleased to advise Hugin, and the program (referred we have already discussed) that unlike Pandora has all the numbers for the creating panoramas.
For the record, I post below the result of merging multiple images into one using Pandora. Observe the cypress and its outline to approximately one third of the image width, the red car duplicated in the second third of the image, not counting the horizon of the coast and the various shades of blue as far as the sky. The picture speaks for itself.
