Discussion:
GUI overhaul

Hi group,

I overhauled the GUI of Hugin. I've taken some ideas from some
discussions on the list and also some own ideas. The main goal was to
reduce the complexity for beginners, but keep the full flexibility for
advanced users. For beginners only a reduce set of features is shown.
But the advanced user can activate it when needed.
Also the lens tab was removed. The functions moved to the images tab.
The images tab is now the main tab. The optimizer master switches has
also been moved to the images tab. When optimizer master switches are
selected, the optimizer and photometric optimizer tab are hidden. This
result in a cleaner interface (when using the master switches the
listboxes below had no function, there occupied only a lot of space).
And most of the work can done on the images tab. (Input + Optimisation
on images tab; output on stitcher tab).

When needing the advanced optimizer then set the optimizer to custom,
then the optimizer tab is shown. Also the optimizer tabs have been
extended. Beside customizing the optimize vector you can also change
image variables directly on these tabs (no need to switch to images/
lenses tab any more ;-) ).

I committed the code to an own branch gui_overhaul (not yet to the
default branch). I did some testing and hope that it works. But there
can be some bugs left. Please test and give feedback. Maybe we can
improve it further.
If there are no objection, then it could go into default branch.

Thomas

Good. This distinction has always seemed gratuitous.

I see the same error on fedora f16, this is with gcc-4.6.3.

I am using #! 10 64bit BPO (debian squeeze+backports) and gcc-4.6.3.
I just built the latest default branch to check if some change there
was causing the error and it built with no problems.

Thats strange. I tested on f15, there it works. Now I installed f16,
and also here it works.

Nevertheless I modified the code and committed (works here on Windows
and f16). I hope, it compiles now also for you.

Thanks, the build now works for f16 and f17. I'll try running it later if
my children let me get anywhere near a computer.

Ok, fedora packages seem to be ok now, I'm putting them here if
anyone wants to try:

http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/bpostle/panorama/

(this is also the new location for my repository of fedora snapshots
of panorama related software)

I need to try some real projects with this new GUI, but I'm glad to
see that output stacks and layers are finally visible in Hugin
before stitching!

These are my first thoughts: the beginner/advanced/expert switch
shouldn't be hidden in the Settings menu, maybe this could go in the
button bar?

The 'Display' options in the Images tab for showing different
columns in the table are quite fundamental, how can these be made
more obvious? In the old GUI there was a second level of tabs in
the Camera and Lens tab, this could work for the new Images tab.

I think the Images tab can be renamed 'Photos'.

I took advantage of a "bug" in the Ubuntu PPA nightly builder (should build
the latest trunk, instead it build the latest updated branch at the time of
pulling, which ends up being quite random) to try the overhauled GUI. I
had a couple of images to defish, no fancy projects.

First impression: well done, good job, it is an improvement.

the beginner/advanced/expert switch shouldn't be hidden in the Settings menu


Agree. Also: I have not understood the difference between advanced and
expert. At least it was not immediately apparent to me. Are three level
of usage necessary, or would two be enough?


> , maybe this could go in the button bar?


It has to be very visible -- not just the switch, also the level of the
current interface being used. How about changing the background colour,
e.g. using a light blue for the advanced and a light yellow for the expert,
with the same luminance as the grey used for the beginner/default?

I would prefer more clarity to the used mode as well but I don't like
fiddling with background colors. Some interfaces are really terrible color
wise and I prefer the grey backgrounds of many programs: It's the easiest
and most comfortable for the eye. (I'm not a big fan of "skinning" either
for that matter). Next to that: It might influence color schemes/themes
within all kind of OSes. That's not nice behavior.
My preference would be to have a bold text (label) in the top right (or top
left) saying: *"mode: Beginner"* or whatever mode you are working in. This
text could also appear in the button bar (so much for "button" bar) if you
want to keep the screen as clean as possible.

Like you I am not a big fan of "skinning" and did not consider the
influence on existing colour schemes. You are right, I take back the
suggestion of changing colour background.

I wanted to get back into the new GUI and try to imagine this, but too
late: the nightly repo has been updated and this time the most recent
change was in the default branch, so I am back to trunk (or stable
release). I need to set up a development environment on this PC, but there
are other things on my priorities list for the coming weeks. I also need to
either change my subscription to email again, or get used to Google's new
web based interface (my apology if it sends out HTML mail to subscribers, I
just found that there is one button on the editor bar to remove formatting,
but it is not good and mangles up quoting.

I don't see a point on adding extra buttons for this to the toolbar.
IMHO only function which are needed every day should be appear in the
toolbar. But in the daily work I don't think that someone is change
this level. A casual user should set the level to his needs and then
leave it. (Only when special features are necessary for a particular
project, then the level needs to be updated; but not every day.) So
for me the menu item is sufficient.

Then I will solve the riddle:
In beginner only the basic function are shown (also the stitcher tab
shows only a reduced option set).
In advanced support for stacks and HDR is possible.
And in expert finally the translation parameters are shown and can be
optimized. Also the output layer/stacks are only shown in expert mode.
Because when this groups are shown the GUI can become slow responding.

I implemented this label in changeset 7f384d763667.

I agree, but maybe the label should not be "Settings", but something like
"user mode" or maybe better: "gui mode". The term settings is too general
and seems more like a general settings option panel for the entire
application, and that's Preferences already.

And now after building I think the best label in the screen and in the menu
is "Gui mode".
In the screen it is immediately clear what is meant with it and it
automatically explains the the menu label as well.

(And for the insiders we create an extra label: "Gui tmodes")


(Away for the rest of the evening).

Hi Harry,

thanks for the propose. I changed the label.

@Bruno
I changed the display wxChoice to wxRadioBox. So I hope it is more
obvious. Using tabs would take some more space and it would be not so
nice for smaller screens (at least on GTK, on Windows it is not so
critical, not sure for OS X)

This is clearer, do you have any plans for what comes next? Can the
Crop and Mask tabs be merged with the Photos tab? Can the Assistant
be moved to the preview so the 'normal' Gui disappears altogether in
'beginner' mode? There is a lot of rarely used stuff in the preview
that must be very confusing for 'beginners'.

Hello Thomas,
I have just built the gui_overhaul branch (5783:67b229d0cf3a).
I found a problem with the Fast Preview Window. When in layout mode,
selecting one of the links between images opens up the Stitcher tab
instead of the Control points tab.
This behaviour is in all Gui modes.

Cheers,
Terry

Probably just me being weird, but I suspect a lot of beginners just
follow the buttons on the Assistant tab: Load Images. Align. Create
panorama.

Starting to sound like someone's applying the de facto Gnome environment
design philosophy: "What functionality can we take away from the user
next?" Or a relative of it: "What else can we hide from users now?"

I like the idea of the Beginner/Expert UI toggle. I use ZynAddSubFx and
Yoshimi for music work. Both have a Beginner and an Expert UI mode. I
think the present Hugin UI is great for an Expert UI. I think the
Assistant tab could be turned into the Beginners UI.

I do wonder all this effort to merge tabs together (I don't happen to
agree with that, since some of the merges that have already been
mentioned have apparently made it harder to use!) when the logical UI
element for working on a panorama already exists in Hugin: the Panorama
Preview.

By the way, when I see a UI design in which the designer has to *explain
in a text email* how to do something in the new UI, the design has some
fundamental issues it needs to address.

In the existing GUI there is the Images tab and there is the Camera
and Lens tab, which is actually another two tabs. They each show a
different set of image parameters, but some image parameters are not
shown at all, the 'filename' appears in both tabs, but not in the
Crop or Mask tab - This is all pretty random and shows the
incremental way it was built.

These tabs are each in the form of a list/table, but if I select a
photo or photos in the Images tab, then switch to the Camera and
Lens tab, different photos are selected. This makes it hard to add
a feature like 'click on a photo in the preview and select it in the
Images tab', or 'select two photos in the Camera and Lens tab and
show the same two photos in the Control Points tab'.

>when the logical UI element for working on a panorama already

Yes, this is something often discussed, there is the potential to
turn Hugin inside-out - Make the Preview window the main window, with
the existing main window something you can close if you don't need
it. To do this the Assistant needs to move to the Preview.

I often wondered if all of this couldn't be placed in one window. How?
By displaying it in a fashion which is often used for tabular data
displays: You start out with a standard set of columns, and by right-
clicking on the row with the column headers you get a context window
allowing you to add/remove columns. Augment that with left-clicking on
column headers to sort by this column, and you have a standard
interface many computer-literate people would feel instantly at home
with. This would leave it to the user to choose what they want to see/
can accomodate on their screen. I wouldn't even be surprised if the
appropriate widget type existed already in wxwidgets.

I think user would get overwhelmed with columns and sideways scrolling
... prefer having separate tabs with focused functionality.

What about something in between: a column for image names, and at it's
right the tabs. Maybe the user could even create his own user tab where he
would put whatever column combination suits his needs. I don't know if such
a design is easily implementable with the design tools used for Hugin,
though.

Well, if it makes sense to have image names on a tab, putting them in a
column would be fine. I like the tabs across the top, personally, not
down the side. Of course, that could a user configurable option.

First, what I am thinking may be completely wrong, I am on Windows, so I
did not see the new GUI.

Sorry, I was not clear, I did not mean tabs down the side (I think you
meant something like vertical :-/ ) I meant tabs within tabs. In the images
tab, on the left a single column list of image names, and in the right part
of the images tab add a sub-tab which would allow to choose the set of
colums. Either Camera and Lens sub-tabs or Camera, Lens and User (the user
could decide his columns in this last tab) When the user selects one (or
several) image name(s), the row(s) would be select in all the sub-tabs.
This way, the user could select on scroll to any image and easily switch
the different column sets.

I hope I am making myself clearer. If I don't, I'll try to draw a mock-up.

OTOH, a tab within a tab may be not quite user-friendly. For example, which
tab set should the Ctrl+Tab shortcut control?

This is more-or-less how the current version of the gui_overhaul
looks, though rather than a secondary set of tabs there are 'radio
button widgets' for the various 'views' of columns.

I'm working currently on the merging of mask and crop tab. But it will
not go into the photo tab, there is not enough space.

Concerning the fast preview: I thought also on this, but I'm not sure.
There is still the issue with the crashing preview. I fixed some time
ago a further issue, but until now no feedback if it is really fixed.
In the fast preview I started to hide controls in the beginner mode:
currently only the mosaic drag controls are hidden for beginner. Which
control do you think can be confusing for beginner? These can also be
hidden in beginner mode.

Maybe after the merging I will have a look on the assistant in the
preview.

@Terry
I will fix this point when the above mentioned merge is done. It's on
my to do list.

In the Windows 2011.4.0 version, the fast preview crash still occurs,
although much much less frequently. For me, the current frequency of crash
is quite acceptable, but others may disagree. And it seems some others have
it at much higher rates than me.

I don't think there is any hurry, I'd like to hear what other people
think.

I'm in two minds about the beginner/advanced toggle, but I agree
that the mosaic mode should be invisible to new users. Looking at
the preview, maybe everything else is actually useful to beginners.

The Overview, Layout tab, and old preview are all supplementary
alternative views of the entire project, but they exist at totally
different levels. This is very confusing.

Would the Overview be more stable if it lost the whole docking thing
and became a 'normal' modeless window? The Layout tab could get the
same treatment, then if the old preview lost the duplicated widgets,
there would be three optional floating windows with complementary
but secondary functionality - Leaving a much less cluttered preview
window.

I'm just sounding out ideas here, clearly there are things that
could be better, but the solutions are not always obvious.

I believe "simple is a better term than beginner".

Beginner mode, is using wizards that do everything for you. The Assistant tab.
Simple mode, is using a cleaner interface that hides all the advanced features
that are hardly used.
Advanced mode, is having every possible control available.

We just need to define what a simple stitch is and what is not necessary to
accomplish it.

How about "standard" and "advanced" modes?

Looking forward to see and try out a build with this interface overhaul.

What about "easy", "medium", "hard"?
Now we still have to find a way to implement "fatality" ;-)

Without kidding: I think "guided", "standard" and "expert mode" are pretty
nice. Guided being assistant only, basically (except maybe from some basic
viewpoint selection using the preview window).

One more bug: Good to see the g & t shear parameters in the GUI, but
they are filled with the same values as the d & e parameters.

Linux Hugin 2011.4.0.cf9be9344356 32-bit here running on boring old
Intel 855GM video hardware under Debian Sid crashes any time I try fast
preview. Have tried the various "fixes", even renaming the hidden
".hugin" file, with no change.

Same Hugin version works fine on Sid (64-bit) on my desktop PC with
NVidia graphics.

Did anyone look into the OpenGL versions and requirements for this fast
preview? Which OpenGL calls are used, and as of which versions are these
function calls valid, and which versions of OpenGL are installed on the
various OSes?
Especially in combination with wxwindows and opengl.
We did all kind of version checks when "we" as various testers/builders
first worked on this fast preview window during GSOC 2009 when James Legg
was working on this.
Am I seeing ghosts and is the fast peview now OpenGL version independent,
or could it be related to versions? And if so: Do our developers have
up-to-date verions when compiling as they try to be up-to-date (at least I
try) and have the users outdated versions?
Even with the automatic software updates on the linuxes this could be an
issue when running on older distributions which no longer update libraries
but only do security/bug fixes.

just my 2cents.

Sorry, this is getting off-topic. It seems my Windows Vista has an emulated
OpenGL 1.4 API but I use the standard NVIDIA driver which contains OpenGL
2.1.

I think this is much better, but I'm concerned the acronym GUI can't
make much sense to most people - How does it translate into other
languages? Hugin has lots of photography jargon, but this is
inevitable, there has to be a better word than GUI.

GUI is a piece of programmer/UXD computer jargon that makes ordinary
people go "Huh?" Plus using "GUI" would imply (to more knowledgable
computer folker) that the alternative is a "TUI" (TEXT user interface),
not just a simplified GUI.

I vote for "Beginner Mode" and "Expert Mode". Makes sense in ZynAddSubFx
and Yoshimi!

I agree, that's better.

And by the way: not only the photos tab needs this label, also the Stitcher
tab.

If a label, e.g. next to a checkbox, is needed, what about cutting down the
acronym and let it say "user interface mode" or maybe just "interface
mode"? Or even "user mode"?

Is the word interface easily understandable in English by someone who
doesn't have any technical knowledge about computer programs?

I don't know this since English is not my first language, but in the Danish
translation, GUI would probably just remain GUI (which would be confusing)
since we, to my knowledge, don't have an acronym for that. So I also vote
to avoid the word GUI.

I agree too: interface is better than GUI -- especially for beginners :)

I hope I could compile and test the overhauled GUI Hugin this weekend.

Thanks it builds now though it crashes if you change the user
experience level without any images loaded.

hugin: /media/Linux_Data/Programs_CB10/Hugin/src/hugin/
hugin_gui_overhaul/src/hugin_base/panodata/Panorama.h:211: virtual
const HuginBase::SrcPanoImage& HuginBase::Panorama::getImage(size_t)
const: Assertion `nr < state.images.size()' failed.
Aborted

There also appears to be no difference between the beginner, advanced,
and expert settings except on the optimizer tab which shows the X, Y,
and Z columns under advanced and expert but not beginner.
The optimizer and exposure tabs are not hidden in beginner, advanced,
or expert mode.
The optimizer tab is much harder to use now since there is no way to
activate an entire column with one click, same for the exposure tab.
The user must click the box for every image in a column they want to
activate or deactivate, there was a button to do this before.
You moved to optimizer master switches to the images tab but they are
nearly unusable there since the user can not see what effect the
different settings have without changing to the optimizer tab.
You moved to exposure master switches to the images tab but they are
nearly unusable there since the user can not see what effect the
different settings have without changing to the exposure tab.
If you want to put the the master switches on the images tab please
leave them on the other tabs, your layout is much more compact than
the old one, they do not take up much room, and you only want advanced
users to see these tabs anyway.
When you removed the lenses tab you did not move all of its
functionality to the images tab as you said.

Also the lens tab was removed. The functions moved to the images
tab.

There is no way there to set the lens parameters that were previously
found on the lens tab on the images tab.
I found this was actually moved to the optimizer tab but the columns
are only labeled with a single letter and not the actual variable
names as they were before.

Fixed now.

Thats wrong. The possible selections in the drop down boxes on the
images tab show also different values depending on the GuiLevel.

> The optimizer and exposure tabs are not hidden in beginner, advanced,

The are hidden depending on the master optimizer switches and not on
the GuiLevel.

This can be done now with the context menu.

The master switch say what will be optimized. So I don't need the long
lists to see it again. Also the lists are read only and will confuse a
new user.
If the master switch is doubled on the optimizer tab, we can't hide
the optimizer tabs any more.

Again, use the context menu.

Where?
I could not find a way to toggle a whole column on or off in the right
click menu.

But then a new user will be unable to see what selections each of the
optimizer settings makes to compare them, they are not self
explanatory.
Why can you not hide the optimizer tab if it also has the switch on
it?

Hiding everything under the Edit right click entry is not user
friendly.
This is because you have Position, Lens, Photometrics, and Camera
Response all under the edit entry but nowhere do you tell the user
what "Edit" allows you to edit.
If an experienced user could not find these settings how confusing do
you think this will be for a new user who needs to change these
settings?
You have a Lens entry in the right click menu I would expect to find a
"edit lens parameters" entry there even if it just opens your edit
window to the Lens tab.

Same problem for me when changing user experience level:
hugin:
/home/cristian/unstable/hugin/src/hugin/hugin.hg/src/hugin_base/panodata/Panorama.h:211:
virtual const HuginBase::SrcPanoImage&
HuginBase::Panorama::getImage(std::size_t) const: Assertion `nr <
state.images.size()' failed.
Annullato

I'm on ubuntu 11.10 64bit.

Builds OK here on Fedora 16 x86_64. It does seem to take a lot longer
to build, but that may be a wrong impression, as I didn't time it.
I am still finding my way around it, so will need to work with it a
bit more before expressing a view on whether it is all OK.
I guess having become familiar with the default gui I don't have too
many problems with it.
It will be interesting to see what new users think of it.
Thanks for your efforts Thomas.

Cheers,
Terry

It now builds fine on OSX as well.

I will do further tests slightly later this week.
And need to do some minor changes to do to the calibrate_lens_gui and
ptbatchergui bundle w.r.t. lensfun changes before I can release a bundle.

We have the same error in the nightly build for all AMD64 builds.
Further information can be found at
https://launchpad.net/~hugin/+archive/nightly/+packages

This indicates that some changes in trunk are the cause for this error.

If by trunk you mean the default branch it builds fine for me.

Hello List,

I've tried out the latest (5786:fd5019496dd1) version of hugin with the
new GUI. Here some feedback:


- I have two Optimizer tabs, only the on can be clicked.
- There is no Stitch tab, and I haven't figured out how to stitch from
the GUI
- In the Old GUI, I liked the drop down in the Optimizer menu, that
gave the different stitching options.
This allows to play around without understanding in detail what's
happening.


I've used a self-compiled version on a Fedora 16 x86-64 system. And I'm
happy to try out further version. Thanks for the great work.

Serge

These still exist, but they are now on the Photos tab. I agree that
this is non-optimal, but also agree that they shouldn't be
duplicated.

Maybe the Optimiser and Exposure tabs don't need to disappear in
'beginner' mode, or maybe these drop-down presets should be part of
the 'advanced' mode.

What do people see as necessary beginner/advanced/expert
functionality?

Personally I think of the Assistant as 'beginner', and anything to
do with bracketing or XYZ mosaics as 'expert', i.e. things that
should be well hidden unless you go looking for them. Everything
else in the GUI is relevant to tweaking stuff that happens behind
the scenes of the Assistant.

As a relative beginner (and I haven't been able to compile older versions
of hugin on my system (Suse 11.4) so wait for someone more experienced), I
do bracketing and XYZ mosaics and did those nearly from day one of using
hugin so I don't think that they should disappear to be dragged from the
depths when required. It took me ages to realise that an XYZ mosaic wasn't
a pano in strict terms.

The transition from Beginner to Advance of Hugin will be much faster for someone
that is already an Advanced user of computers. Most Linux users especially
anyone that is compiling or attempting to compile applications on their system
is an Advanced computer user.

As an Expert in shooting and stitching panoramas I would prefer to see a simple
GUI unless I want to use some of advanced technique.

This was why I suggested the name Simple instead of Beginner. The idea is to
show as few controls that are necessary to do the most common simple stitching.

If a user wants to use an advanced shooting technique, like not keep the camera
rotated around the NPP then they will need the Advanced mode to stitch those
images together.

Great!

Has anyone built a windows test version of this that could be shared for

I agree with both Margaret and Jim. The current terminology reflects an
inward view that has nothing to do with the level of proficiency of the
user -- neither in terms of computing nor in terms of photography. It
draws an arbitrary line in the sand. Why should XYZ be considered more
advanced than bracketing? only because it requires more parameters? was
added later? Added technological complexity?

The current UI simplification is great from an expert perspective and I
fully agree with Jim's view and support his terminology. The
beginner/advanced/expert terminology is misleading. A real beginner is
somebody who does not know the strict terms (to paraphrase Margaret) yet.
For a beginner it does not matter whether the stitch was achieved with
ypr/XYZ/morph-to-fit (BTW, good stuff, Bruno!) and whether visual
uniformity was achieved with bracketing/exposure correction/blending.
Without detracting from the current UI, which I find is a significant
improvement, the terminology is not very helpful for beginners.

What would help beginners are assistants; e.g. code that detects bracketed
shooting and asks the user if they want to switch those features of the UI
on (and even offers some guidance, maybe even automation); or code that
detects bad geometrical alignment which could be improved with XYZ and asks
the user if they want to activate that feature of the UI. The manual
switch implemented now is good for experts.

I repeat: the new GUI is good progress, but don't raise expectations it
can't meet by giving the impression that the simple UI is for beginners.
Even if the new GUI is an improvement for (almost) everybody, it adds more
to experts than to beginners.

XYZ is in a universal language, that of experts, of mathematicians. It is the language of XYZ that allows us to situate ourselves in a spatial 3d world.

XYZ is still very unstable, most of the time it goes and does
something weird. If you are careful you can get very good results,
but this does make it 'expert' functionality.

Thank you for giving me the rationale for the three levels. Based on your
feedback above, I now understand why there are three (and not two) levels
and I suggest that the three GUI level be called *simple* (S), *full* (F),
*experimental* (E). The stability or not of XYZ has nothing to do with the
user's proficiency (beginner/expert/advanced) but with the software
complexity (S vs F) and maturity (F vs E). Eventually E features will
mature and migrate to F (in most cases).

Just compiled the 5806:49acc6d432c6 version.

I do like the combined assistant/preview mode. However, after cpfind has
finished and the images are laid out in the preview, the view is always too
small. I always have to zoom out, using the slider, to make the entire pano
fit in the preview.
Is this on purpose or a small glitch or an OSX glitch/feature?

And..

the menu doesn't function correctly anymore. In the menu I have from left
to right: Hugin, File, Edit, etc.
Below hugin was always the "Stop Hugin" option/action. It's still there but
it doesn't function anymore.
Suddenly below File there is also a "Stop" option/action. That one works.

The rest functions as it should.

Thomas,

Just compiled 2011.5.0.8bf549feffa8 on windows and note following:

- opens in 'beginner' mode and cannot see anyway of changing

- an assertion error
(src\hugin1\hugin\HFODialog.cpp:58)HFOVDialog"HFOVDialog():():m_cropText)
occurs when loading photos unless I first open preferences and hit apply

- images must be in correct order before cpfind generates points (could be
true of older versions not checked)

- the general panini projection slides extend off side of my 1024 laptop
screen - this is an old problem but the work around was to use the slow
preview screen

- with an earlier version of revised gui could not see how to unlink lenses
etc and presume same with this one

Keep up the good work

I can only answer this first point as I ran into it as well yesterday. In
the "File" menu you have the "Edit Panorama" option. This will switch to
the " old" gui where you also have the menu option with the Simple,
Advanced, Expert option.

The 'inverse' of this is if you have the 'Expert' option set , when
you start Hugin, you don't have access to the 'Assistant' until you
add images. Probably not a serious issue, but the "Assistant' is
always available in the default branch (old) gui.
I like to use the 'Assistant' mode, and then fall back to the more
advanced capabilities if necessary, and would probably prefer not to
have to be changing my mode selection back and forth to do this...ie.
always in 'Expert' mode but be able to use the 'Assistant' immediately
I start Hugin.
One other thing that caught me out, is that if you start in the
'Simple' mode, and then open the old gui via 'file > edit Panorama',
closing the Fast Preview Window kills everything. Using the 'old'
Hugin, I tend to open and close the FPW as needed. I guess this is a
familiarity thing, and really only applies if your startup mode is
'Simple'.

Cheers,
Terry

I've never needed to put images in any "correct" order before cpfind
generates points. I just tried with some images: loaded them, then used
Move Up and Move Down to put them in arbitrary order. cpfind about
control points. But that's using the release version.

I can confirm this but it has nothing to do with cpfind. It has to do with
the photometric optimization.
If you run everything manual from the edit panorama->photos tab like add
images (in random order), run cpfind, do the optimization and then the
photometric optimization you get an error that it can't find overlapping
points.

In the automatic assistant mode you don't get any results at all which
makes it look like as if cpfind didn't work.

Thomas,

great work!

On the Optimizer Tab, the 'Image Orientation' and 'Lens Parameters' frames
are fixed size ca. 2:1.
I often have lots of data in the small 'Lens Parameters' frame and would
like to make it bigger for easy access.
Can we have a handle to resize?

Thanks,
Jan

Thanks for pointing this out. That's fine with me. But I would then
completely remove the Optimizer Tab. Right now it seems to pop on and
off in my installation.

Also, there should be a preselection in the GUI, so I can just click
"Calculate".

We can never come up with a GUI that suites everybody. For GUI's it's
important that they remain stable, so people can stay in their workflow.
So we should create a useful GUI and then stick to it.

I'm all in favour of simple/advanced: Normaly I i want to get things
done quickly, and they work. In some occasions a Pano is difficult to
assemble, and then I need all the extra tweaking.

Cheers
Serge

Hi,

I do get a compilation error in the latest 5804 version when compiling
AssistantPanel.cpp
/Users/Shared/development/hugin_related/gui_overhaul/mac/../src/hugin1/hugin/AssistantPanel.cpp:420:
error: 'HUGIN_ASS_PREVIEW' was not declared in this scope

The 5799 version compiled correctly.

I removed the now obsolete AssistantPanel.h/.cpp files from the CMake
build. I forgot to remove the files (fixed in changeset 49acc6d432c6).
You need probably to remove the files from your XCode project.

I'm using 5795:efecb20de05a gui_overhaul branch and get a segfault
in the Crop tab, either by clicking on the photo or trying to edit
the values manually.

This is both with existing projects that already have crop settings
and projects that don't. The Mask part seems to be ok.

Here, using 5797:e50102732dad gui_overhaul branch, I can click on
photo OK, but if I select 'reset' Hugin disappears.

This all seems to be working OK now with 5799:686e0c2aaa3e.

I can't find how to add local lens data or lensfun data in the new
gui.
Am I suffering from a form of 'domestic blindness' or is that function
not yet implemented?

hi,

1) agree with jim. replace "beginner" with "simple". and probably
"advanced" for the second mode, and don't have 3 modes.

2) the one most annoying thing about Hugin is still there: when I
automatically align the images, it also does photometric correction, and
then I don't know how to turn it off. With this new design i *really* don't
know how to turn it off - beginner or advanced, whatever.

Hi all,

There is one thing that always annoys me when I use Hugin, and it's this:

http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/9391/stitcher.png

On the stitcher tab, which panorama output option should I tick if I want a
blended, *not* exposure corrected, low dynamic range panorama?

In fact I think many of these options are pretty confusing, especially to a
beginner. I usually end up just using the "No exposure correction" for
remapped images and blending them on the command line.

At the moment you need to reset all photometric parameters in the
Images tab, then stitch as normal.

What is your objection to the exposure correction? You don't want
any exposure correction, even from the EXIF data? or you don't like
the values that the photometric optimisation comes up with?
Sometimes the photometric optimiser doesn't work so well, especially
if the geometric alignment hasn't found a good alignment first - but
this could be fixed with an extra rule in the assistant.

I shoot on manual and trust my blender to correct any other exposure
difference (which should be very little), and I think having to reset all
parameters to 0 to turn it "off" (when in fact it's still *on*, just at 0
strength, as it were) is pretty convoluted.

A "no exposure correction" option seems very sensible to me - is this
really something no-one else ever wanted? :S

You don't have to set the Eev to 0, you can set it to 1 or 1000, so
long as it is the same for all photos. Eev is a log scale so '0'
doesn't really mean 'off'.

What would be wrong with setting them to the EXIF exposure values
rather than calculating them through optimisation?

I would imagine a number of checkbox switches, one for exposure correction,
one for stacks, one for HDR, etc., instead of the current checkboxes under
"Panorama Outputs" and "Remapped Images" in the Stitcher tab (current
layout; haven't seen the GUI overhaul) to be more intuitive. Just a thought.

One situation where I find I have to work without exposure correction
(beyond merely reading the EXIF data) is when I do takes outdoors with
swiftly moving clouds. They can result in the photometric optimization
going wrong, because the assumption that the same spot in different
images is equally bright doesn't hold anymore. The blender will still
make a good panorama in the end, but with photometric optimization I
sometimes get overexposed bits with weird colours.

it sometimes gives bad results. e.g. one of the images for the sky come out
grey, and it would have been better without any optimization.

Hello,

two issues here:

1) in version (5806:49acc6d432c6)

I get an crash if I want do delete more than one image from a project.

I do the following: Open project -> Go to Photos Tab
select two or more images at the *end* of the list. Right click "remove
selected image(s)'.

So some solutions could be:

Using celeste to prevent the photometric optimiser from sampling
areas with clouds, presumably this would get better results.

Backing out and reverting to just EXIF Eev if the optimiser finds
unlikely photometric values. Similar to how the Assistant currently
operates with geometric parameters.

A switch in the preferences to never do photometric optimisation,
just always use EXIF Eev. You might want this in huge projects
anyway.

After sticking to an old Hugin version for years ("if it ain't broken,
don't fix it"), I finally created a project which made the old cpfind crash
(500 images gigapixel), so I reminded myself that new is not necessarily
bad, took the plunge and upgraded to Hugin 2015.0.0.

Wow what a change! And not just for the better. I used to be a Hugin power
user. Now I feel like an amateur again. There are some frustrating nags.
Here are the most important ones:

1. Hiding the Optimizer and Exposure windows is confusing. I want
everything! I am using the Expert interface and still Hugin hides things
from me.

Why are automatic optimizations moved to the Photos tab while custom
optimizations remain on the Optimizer tab? Confusing. I also miss the
connection between exactly what parameters are marked when selecting a
predefined optimization. I want to see what is what. I often select one of
the predefined optimizations as a quick way of mass-ticking parameters as a
basis and then elaborating on them manually before actually optimizing
"custom parameters". Thankfully this still works but doing it in separate
tabs is tedious and confusing.

2. Thanks to #1, it took me a while before I found how to change / delete a
lens. Why are there no buttons? "Every" function should exist as a button,
not just in the right-click menu.

3. Underlining & bolding the parameters selected for optimization makes
them hard to distinguish. Please go back to checkboxes, which makes it
possible using Tab and Space to mark the boxes. Ctrl-clicking is tedious.

4. Resetting ALL exposure correction (incl EV) should be more obvious. I
mix images created in Enfuse with straight-from-camera images with images
that have been manipulated with ancient tools and a tool I've developed
myself (PicStack) that do not retain any EXIF data. I know what I'm doing
and adjust every image by hand before touching Hugin. I never want Hugin to
know anything about exposure. I had a hard time figuring out how to get rid
of the EV values for EXIF-containing images. Why are these not reset by
"Reset lens parameters" and I have to instead "Reset user defined..."?

Any hopes of getting these nags rectified?

Best regards
John Eklund, Sweden

Made a typo. Last sentence of #4 should obviously be:

Why are these not reset by "Reset photometric parameters" and I have to
instead "Reset user defined..."?

I initially wasn't going to respond as I didn't think I had very much that
was helpful to say on this, but finally reneged as I didn't want to see
the post go unanswered.
The new interface, introduced in Hugin-2013.0.0, is different, and as is
often the case with new things they seem 'wrong', simply because of lack
of familiarity.
I guess everyone has their preferences as to how things should look and
feel, but there haven't been a lot of grumbles (there have been some)
about the new interface since it's introduction. I don't see any of the
points you raise as being issues that cause me any concern.
I guess the hope of getting these nags rectified may increase if other
users express similar concerns/frustration.
I would suggest that building up more familiarity with the new interface
may be the best approach.

Cheers,

If I might, I'd suggest that, at least IMO, a lot of the responses to the
grumbling were fairly final sounding and even a bit harsh. A look back at
the responses when the new UI was being shown shows complaints about a
number of things.

Fair enough. I didn't look back on the record of proceedings, just relied

As a non-programmer (know enough to be dangerous, but only in very limited
circumstances :-) ), I very much appreciate the comments of Yuv and Bruno.

My own sense is similar to Bruno's: simple stuff often works great, but
when there's a problem, it can be really hard to figure out why.

I've learned a lot from the tutorials (even updated a couple) and think
that a real manual would go a long way. Not just a manual that outlined the
basics, but one that gets under the hood a bit. Often when I read a good
answer to a problem posed in this group, it explains what's happening in a
way that I could never have figured out by myself and that explanation of
what's going on inside Hugin is revealing and useful beyond the immediate
case. (Bruno's responses are often good examples of this.) Some of the
tutorials are great in this way.

So that's a plug for a more in-depth user manual.

In terms of the GUI, I find myself with at least two major problems:

1. I have to bounce around the various tabs and screens a lot. This is
especially true for the advanced mode with its own window. An interface
that reflected the usual workflow better would be great. (The separate
window for Advanced mode got a lot of criticism, IIRC.)

2. A lot of the interfaces seem not well laid out (and I think I've
commented on a few of these things in various threads). For example, there
are radio buttons where you might expect checkboxes, or a control under one
heading is actual globally valid.

So without going into details, those are the big-picture items that occur
to me.

I appreciate greatly the work that's been done to bring Hugin where it is
now.

Yes, I had a few complaints about the redesign. None of my complaints were
given any response beyond the above, 'Your issue doesn't cause me any
concern' and boiled down to 'you'll get used to it.'

While I've gotten 'used to it', that doesn't mean they're not issues. I
also find the way of configuring/setting custom exposure adjustments hard
to use. I sincerely hope the present UI is only something 'in progress' to
the real UI.

That's a good point, but I think it is unlikely that the developer(s)
would have ended up implementing a design that caused themselves concerns.
I am not one of the developers and wasn't involved in the new interface
development so I can only guess about that. I have simply commented on how
it affects me.
If there is a reasonable number of users who are dissatisfied with the new
interface, hopefully they will express their views and prompt some more
discussion.

You mean it is unlikely that the developer would have ended up
implementing a design that caused him concerns, or more generally that
designs that caused concerns would not have been implemented by the
developer?

I was one of the developers until about five years ago life happened and
I moved on. Now I am developing the tech team for a Toronto startup, I
am developing my practice of law, and in January I will be joining the
team that is developing an innovative stock exchange. Development runs
in my blood.

There are different software development models, and what I observe with
Hugin these days compared with Hugin five years ago is that it has
evolved from being the work of a team to become the work of an
individual developer.

I am not judging the developer, just stating a fact.

It is a fact that without this one developer, Hugin would have staled.
The effort is humongous and the reward minimal. The developer deserves
the credit for keeping Hugin alive and he has every right to make every
decision he has made. From what I observe he has attracted a sufficient
number of followers to ensure continued distribution and he has
sacrificed countless hours. Compare with RAWstudio, another piece of
software that has, over the same time, gone from a team effort to a lone
maintainer model.

There will always be some users expressing "dissatisfaction." So what?
Discussion is just noise. Who is to decide what is a "reasonable
number?" Who is to evaluate whether it is really a concern and not just
a case of "who moved my cheese?" There are millions of users out there
that are still stuck with Windows XP and still whining about who moved
their cheese, while other users have used the choices available to them
and either moved on to Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 or MacOSX or Linux or
Android.

Tying it back to the development model, Hugin was and reamins Open
Source. In an Open Source context, users always have more choices. Or
stating it bluntly: "fork me!" That choice is more real than ever,
because of the tech tools that have matured (GitHub!) and because a team
will inevitably be able to put in more time collectively, than a single
developer. Unless that time is wasted discussing, in which case the
single developer model is more efficient.

I am not judging the users in this thread. They have expressed their
views rationally and respectfully and have shared with the developers
and other users at large how they deal with the changes.

How persuasive their views are depends not only on whether they are a
concern to them and to other users, even to the majority of users. It
depends on the context and how much they can influence. The best advice
I can give to them is to pull the source code (instructions are on the
wiki), go look at the user interface design (which if my memory does not
betray me is in /src/hugin1/hugin/xrc), read it, with the help of the
wxWidgets documentation that can be found online) and start moving
things around. Their view will receive much more support if indeed they
make a small change (such as moving a button from one xrc file to
another or changing a widgets from a text to a checkbox) rather than
suggesting it. Theoretically they may even try to hire a developer to
do that, with a bounty or something.

Until it stays just a discussion, it won't be helpful, because the
individual developer has a limited amount of time and no incentive to
spend it reading discussions.

my 2 cents.

Yuv

I meant your first case...that it was unlikely that the developer would

I don't see any problem with discussion about issues that concern people.
It may just result in some getting involved and contributing patches.

Agree that specific points of concern would be very helpful.
Especially coming from a long time user that is new to the new
interface.

I have got used to using the new approach, and are probably better of
for it. There are some tasks, however, that was easier in the old
interface.

This was my feeling as well. At the moment I use a hybrid model, where
I fall back to the older version to get some things done.

The new UI was a response to Hugin's main usability problem - which was that hundreds of thousands of people would install it and completely fail to get anything to work - it required that users understood all sorts of obscure concepts before even starting.

This problem is mostly solved - someone who just wants to stitch together a few photos taken on holiday has a good chance that this will just work.

Now the situation is that you need to understand lots of obscure concepts to do advanced things, but this is a much better problem to have.

One thing we see regularly is people trying to do advanced stuff entirely using the wizard in the preview window, these people need to be gently directed to advanced features. The bits we find annoying, such as when optimisation controls are hidden until enabled, are like this so Hugin doesn't scare users who are on this learning gradient.

Obviously there are lots of things that could be improved: there is a control on the Photos tab that is incredibly useful for changing settings on the Optimiser tab, and I also find that switching backwards and forwards between the two tabs slows me down. Combining the two would mean that the Optimiser tab is always visible, do we want this?

Hello all, hello John,
you expressed a couple of problems that I experience, too. It took me
quite some time to get used to it.

1. "Hiding the Optimizer and Exposure windows is confusing." I guess you
meant the tabs. These are displayed as soon as you choose a setting like
"custom parameters" for geometric or photometric optimisation. So they
are not displayed as long as there are not settings to change. Quite
useful I find - but see issue 4.

2. Why is there no delete button? I wonder too! That's what GUIs are
for. They should present the possible commands and not make you search
for them. (Anyway, you can just hit the delete key!)

3. This new underlining & bolding UI is not only less ergonomic to read
and to use, I must admit I have never understood how to use it properly.
I can "select all" or "unselect all" images to be optimized for a
specific parameter.
Thank you John! You mentioned Ctrl-clicking and I tried and only now
found out how to optimise a parameter for only one image (or a
selection, but not all). I really think there should be a more obvious
way to do this.
Or have I been living under a rock and this is something a computer user
usually knows?
This is why I have not uninstalled the last hugin version with the old
UI and although I know now how to use it I would still be grateful if it
could be reverted to checkboxes.

4. Yes, the sub menu structure of these menus doesn't make it clear
where to find that. When you have the Exposure tab displayed (see
above!) it's easier or more obvious: When you hit the "Reset" button,
you get a similar dialogue to that "reset custom ..." one and here it's
in the first option. I think, too, this should be easier to find.
Although this is probably a very special use case.


Best regards
Joachim Schneider
