I downloaded an open-source HDR program, Luminance HDR (used to be Qtpfsgui, apparently) and didn't get very far with it. I was using 3 RAW photos, shot from a tripod, and in the image-aligning stage it took so long that I canceled it and decided to try with just 2 of the photos. Again it sat and sat and sat in the image-aligning stage and after 40 minutes I decided it just wasn't worth it. (Duh!)
I tried it again with 2 different images and it still just sat there, apparently trying to align them. (The "in-progress" indicator was going, so it wasn't just locked up.)
It's true my processor is just 2.2 ghz and I only have 3gb of RAM, but I'm inclined to think there's something else going on. Or does it really take a super-duper computer to do HDRs?
----------
Edit: Never mind! I was obviously using the wrong program. I just downloaded Picturenaut and it works fine. (Seems like I should be able to delete this thread...)
----------
Edit #2: Okay, I see why I couldn't delete this thread. It's so I can say, "If you think you just might want to play a little bit with HDR and see what you think, DO IT! IT'S COOL! And Picturenaut is free. (The documentation is imaginary, but...)

Try the Oloneo beta if you want to see fast processing :)

It appears to work with only one image at a time.

Yeah, I couldn't get the video to work but finally did just a couple minutes ago.
Thanks
