The stitcher component enables the loading and parsing of
PTGui Pro project files (.pts).
Files saved from the trial version of PTGui will not work as they are encrypted.
PTGui Pro is a panoramic image stitching software which can be
tried and purchased here: https://www.ptgui.com/
The stitcher component will parse a PTGui Pro project file and
create the necessary amount of inputs to its component to read
in all involved shots and output the full panoramic texture.
An example project and images are available on PTGui's website
This can be used for real-time video stitching. Use a snapshot of the inputs from all the cameras, send it through PTGui to create a .pts file and then load the .pts file. You can now feed the same cameras into the component and a live-stitch will be performed.
Right now it only accepts inputs from fisheye lens, and outputs equirectangular projection.
