I have been looking for some support for an image stitcher that will take many digital pictures taken one after another in rows and columns and stitch them together to make a very large seamless picture much like how photoshop cs4’s photomerge does, or autopano or ptgui. however these are all processor bound and while they do utilize multiple cores it takes a whole day to compile and blend a gigapixel image together; and as my photos become larger and larger it just takes too much time. I feel this would be a GREAT example to show the power of CUDA and gpu processors.
Does anybody know of an application that would take advantage of my GPU or a TESLA processor to stitch photos together in a reasonable amount of time? photoshop cs4 does a great job with stitching and blending a seemless picture automatically, is there a way to add support for tesla to this application? or maybe to one of the others i mentioned.
Thank You very much for any help or comments.
