Hey all,

Ok, from what I've read, the Hugin-software is supposed to be able to take exposure-bracketed, overlapping bits of a single scene, recognize which are which, and then blend & stitch (or stitch & blend) everything in one single go, into a full panorama with extended dynamic range.

However, when I try to load all images with a single import, and proceed to the control point search and image alignment, I get the following error message in the aligning phase: "Couldn't execute command: C:\Program Files\Hugin\bin\autopa​no-sift-c.exe --maxmatches 10
D:\Docume~1\User\Local​s~1\Temp\ap_C4.tmp"
, then followed by a list of the filenames and full path information of all imported images.

If I've understood correctly, there's no need to separately blend the bracketed shots before stitching them, or the other way around, when using this software. So what's the problem? Perhaps I'm supposed to somehow tell the program which of the shots are bracketed, and which are overlapping... if so, no problem, but how to do it exactly? So far, I haven't found any options related to that.

Any thoughts/advice?

You must install enblend (external link). Did you?

I think so, since I downloaded and installed a package which includes it - and "enblend" is also selectable in the processing-section of the last tab (in Hugin-GUI).

Not sure if the following has anything to do with it, but in "preferences" -> "enblend", the "use alternative Enblend program"-option is currently unticked. I figured it should be changed only if I wanted to use some other blender, is that correct?

EDIT:

You know what... I'm not entirely sure yet, but the error message could actually be caused by insufficient free space on the drive containing the swap file Hugin is using. I'll have to check that out next, and move it into different drive if necessary.
