What is Hugin for Mac

Hugin is an open-source panorama photo creation tool. It can put multiple photos together very easily and the end result is smooth and stunning!

Hugin uses the same open source library used by many other software including shareware like PTMac from Kekus Digital. Hugin is, however, free and you can start making panoramic photos without buying any expensive software or equipment. Unlike many similar software, Hugin considers the shapes of the lens and can adapt to the particular distortion profile of your camera.

For advanced users, hugin also has many features for making panoramas with special equipment, including two types of fisheye lenses and more.

What's new in Hugin

Version 2019.2.0:
  • Fixes raw import on Mac OS, bugs in verdandi/internal blender, several small bugs
  • Scripting interface needs now Python3
  • Improvements for high dpi displays (Windows, GTK+3)

This app works! Use a wizard to help with simpler overlaps, and for more complicated panoramas or multi-part scans, you can add overlapping control points. I tried a few other programs, and a few work okay. But Hugin really works! The expert mode does take a little learning, but is perfect for multi-page scans of a large document.

MacUpdate hasn't updated the version in a long, long, time. The current version is 2017.0.0. There have also been updates in 2015 and 2016 that MacUpdate has apparently missed, The developers site gives the following:

This is great software, and free! I used Hugin previously several years ago, and that wasn't very simple, but at least as of the 2014 release, it's very straightforward: Press button 1 to load your pictures, press button 2 to have Hugin automatically detect how they overlap, and press button 3 to have it export the resulting panorama. I got a few warning messages, but just pressed cancel to ignore them and it worked perfectly.

I realize that this is open source software, but I have to be honest. This is the kind of app that makes you work for the software instead of the other way around. I was unable to get this to work properly at all, and there are a number of alternatives that do not cost a great deal of money.

Just ran into a weird issue with Hugin 2010.2. It turns out if you're loading images that have a single quote anywhere in their path, control point detection will always fail, no matter which detector or what settings. Something is not being escaped properly. E.g., if you're loading images stored in: /Users/you/Desktop/Friend's Birthday/… When you click (Align), you'll get errors in the little console window that pops up while control point detection is happening. Unhelpfully, this window appears and disappears so quickly, you can't even read the details. It would be nice if those errors could be written to a log file or something. Very frustrating having the console window immediately vanish when you're trying to see WHAT the damn problem is. Anyway, just make sure you don't have any single quotes in the path of any images you're loading.

To repeat some good advice given in the release notes, if you've upgraded from a previous version of Hugin and anything isn't working, try clicking the (Load Defaults) button in the preferences window. This resets all settings to the defaults *for the current version*.

A few things before you give up on this application, as I almost did: This is work in project. That said, you shouldn't expect everything to work as it should. There is a learning curve for this app, but once you've mastered even a small (say, around 25%) percentage of the app, then you'll come to realize that this is a professional project after all. A couple of things to get you started: You'll have to download a couple of external libraries to make control point detection work, read the manual for more information on the matter. Even mid-way on the process of stitching, you'll have to make sure all control points are detected correctly, even manually add a few on your own; I had a couple of control points that were detected wrongly in the first place and I was wondering what was wrong for a couple of hours... Although Hugin gets the work done, it still needs to be greatly updated. The workflow is a bit strange, especially when the images are difficult for the CP detectors and you have to do manual corrections.

The last two public versions of Hugin I've tried (2009.2 and 2009.4) are broken and completely unusable. They both crash immediately after clicking "Align Images" (the 2nd step after loading images), 100% of the time. Still sticking with Hugin 0.8.0, the last working version. If anyone has managed to get the newer versions to work at all, please share what you did to get it working.

Takes a bit of time to figure it out, but once you've got it down, Hugin is a powerful front-end for some of the best image alignment/blending tools around. There are much easier and quicker ways to stitch or blend photos, but the results are usually not as good. For the most part, you can let Hugin figure things out for you. I usually check all the control points between each pair of images, and add a few more if there are any large overlapping sections of image that don't have any (as these areas will tend to have alignment problems). A tripod is ideal, but not necessary, and whatever you do, don't use a *cheap* tripod. Having owned a couple cheap ones myself, I find they don't sit perfectly level, so you end up with an arc after the images are are all blended, and then you have to crop a lot of it out (or distort the image -- usually not desirable). Use exposure lock if your camera has it. Hugin can blend different exposures (and does a pretty good job of it, usually), but it's better if it doesn't need to. I just did this panorama with Hugin this morning: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stormchild/3697663473/

The tip provided below by PLANET is tedious and not necessary any more. 1. Create a folder and name it Hugin in /Library/Application Support 2. Create a folder and name it Autopano inside the above folder 3. Copy the file "Autopano-SIFT-C 2.5.huginAutoCP" (provided in the download) into that Autopano folder 4. Launch the application and go to Preferences>Autopano and ... A. Under "Select Autopano" choose "Autopano-SIFT (by S. Nowozin)" B. Ensure the checkbox in front of "Use alternative Autopano-SIFT program" is NOT ticked Autopano-SIFT is now set up - enjoy using Hugin!!!

This is the best piece of open source software I've ever used altough the provided "put autopano sift to hugin" script always failed and the developers made a big secret how to use autopano sift with Hugin. After using the "sift helper" programm for one year I found a workaround: How to set up autopano sift with HUGIN: 1. Right click on Hugin.app : show folder content. 2. Navigate to the folder Hugin/contents/resources/ 3. in the folder "resources" create a new folder: autopano-sift 4. the following files must be copied into the new "autopano-sift" folder: - autopano - autopano-complete-mac.sh - autopano-complete.old.sh - autopano-complete.sh - autopano-win32 - autopano.exe - autopanog - generatekeys - generatekeys-sd - generatekeys-sd.exe - ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll - libsift.dll - showone - showtwo 5. now autopano sift works fine. One of the best kept secrets solved.

This software makes great panoramas, but it's a bit confusing to setup use, even with the new "Panorama Helper" thing, and the UI is also a bit confusing. The price can't be beat, however.

A VERY USEFUL APPLICATION BUT CAN'T CALL AUTOPANO-SIFT. I have installed mono framework and autopano-sift onto my Intel iMac (running OS 10.4.8) and HuginOSX works perfectly. I have chosen "use alternative autopano-sift programme" from the preferences of Hugin OSX and directed it to autopano-sift-2.4/bin/autopano-complete.sh. When I click on "create ctrl points" in Hugin I get a panel headed "running autopano" which says "please wait while autopano searches control points ..." After a short while I then get an error message headed "autopano failure -Could not open autopano_results_tempfile.pto for reading. This is an indicator that the autopano call failed, or wrong command line parameter have been used." I ran the script autopano-complete.sh independently via ScriptGUI and it returned the result: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable csh: No more processes. I have been trying this for the last month to no avail and have emailed the autopano-sift developer but haven't received a reply.

Universal Binary in all its glory- bravo! In a few hours use on one panorama, it has yet to crash on a MBP. It looks like all the kinks in the old unoffical 0.5 binary build are gone. Many thanks to those who made the UB possible- hopefully the build dependencies have been straightened out as well so that the average unix sysadmin can compile it!

Given that intel macs have been out for over 6 months, and the heavy CPU requirements of processing large panoramas...it'd be really nice if Hugin developers produced an intel-native build and made it available for download. It's clear it is possible- numerous people on the mailing list have done so. I've tried, but the documentation on how to do so is an utter mess of out-of-date kludgery.

Altough the automatic control point generation still doesn't work and some bugs still are existing, Hugin 0.5 is my one and only reason to start this bloated, moronic MAC OS 10.39. If you need automatic control point generation search the web for Sift-Helper. (At macupdate you wont find it) Drag the folder with your images that you want to stitch onto Sift-Helpers window and it generates a shell script. (.sh) Then you drag the images on an terminal window hit enter, drag the shell script on the same window, hit enter again. If Mono framework is present, after a while a a hugin project file with the corresponding points is generated. Start Hugin, load the images and save the project as a second project file. Quit Hugin. Open both project files in an text editor like BBEdit lite and copy the part with the control points in the project file Hugin saved. Save. Now you can open the file in Hugin and have your control points. Sounds complicated but works. I hope I have not betrayed one of the best kepts secrets of Hugin.

I really respect the people that gang together and make this kind of open source software so the masses get the benefits. As with previous release of HuginOSX 0.5 I have found that the 'optmise' process consistently causes the application to crash, even though the release notes state that this bug had been fixed. I have tried re-installs and deleting preferences but can make the application reliably 'optimise'. If this bug could be fixed it would be an outstanding piece of software.
