25 nov 2008 Sneak preview V5 -ALIGNMENT

Setting Multi-Align points (update 17 december)

Although V4 had a system to automatically estimate alignpoints in V5 we have improved this tool considerably. The screen below shows the result of pressing "estimate alignpoints" with variable Alignboxes. The user can specify the minimum distance between alignpoints. Alternatively a user can also set a matrix-style grid of alignpoints. The "master" alignpoint (#1) will be set by the user if he wishes. All the other locations are estimated by RegiStax. The size of the boxes  aims at filling the most interesting image-space with alignboxes that are often rather small in feature-rich areas and larger outside.
