Can the PS file output from Panoweaver be manually blended with enblend?

Thanks

hey gen,

i know ur into the workflow to price ratio.

consider photomatix if you have not

shoot the same pano at 3 ev settings.

stitch them (you'll end up with 3 panos)

photomatix /blend all 3 panos together.

done.

VT360,
Using photomatix will not correct the issue in which we are talking about.  Enblend is used to correct (blend) the stitching seems.

Gen.
As far as Enblend; it will (with what I have read thus far) open multi layer TIFF.  I have not yet seen support for .psd.  Another issue with Enblend will be it's DOS like program for those not familiar with any coding (much less DOS atmoshere) will be a tough go.

PTGui or PT Assembler (with what I have read) will launch Enblend for you once the TIFF files have been stitched. 

Still lot's to read on the subject  I will see what you fella's come up with when I return from the Blue Ridge Parkway, for a much needed 4 day weekend. 

Also, hope to return with some nice panos too!  Leaf color is peak this weekend.

Thanks,
Pixel

Thanks Pixelator,

I was thinking enblend was available as a plugin for photoshop. I guess you could take the PSD file and resave it as a layered TIFF then go to Enblend. But I would like to avoid command line tools if possible. It just complicates the work flow.

Anybody know if there are any "blending" programs that are available as a plugin to photoshop?

VT360 - yes, I use photomatrix on nearly all jobs. Thanks for the help though.

Just for the record the reason this would good is to help with exposure problems and to deal with moving objects, especially people.

Thanks

General Lee

theres a gui  user interface for emblend that might help out.

http://digitalretrograde.com/Projects/EnblendGUI/

as for photoshop plugin for emblend or similiar, i  havent found.

that gui above seems to work with smartblend as well. smartblend seems powerful for moviing objects - which is something of a concern to u

chekc out the smart blend example links
