  • Procedures/RCDPhotoProcessing

    v28 v29  
    33The RCD produces raw files that need to be processed in order to create TIFF files.  The processing basically uses a gain and offset scaling and (probably) corrects for lens distortion.  See the [wiki:Sensors/RCD_CH39 RCD page] for more details, including filename convention.
     5Note this is currently not working under wine so all photo processing needs to be done on the windows box.

    710 1. Load the Leica photo processing software
    811    * Under Windows, select start->programs->leica->calibration->Calibration Post Processing
    9     * If using wine, run "leica_photo_processing"
     12    * If using wine, run "leica_photo_processing" -
    1013 1. Select the appropriate camera config (Parameters)
    1114    * As of late 2009, this is CH39_021_060

    1316 1. Select the input files
    14     * Typically this will be something like ~airborne/workspace/IPY09_11-2009_219_Helheim/leica/RCD/images
     17    * Typically this will be something like ~airborne/workspace/IPY09_11-2009_219_Helheim/leica/rcd/images
    1518    * You can click and shift-click to select a list from the open file dialog, but be aware that it appears to take about 5 seconds per file under wine, so expect a long wait while it's thinking (it hasn't crashed!)

    1922 1. Select 16 bit TIFF output ('''this is important! ''')
    2023 1. Hit the start button and go for coffee (allow about 20-30secs per file)
