1 Hi Dale,
3 Hugin has a USE-flag for SIFT which pulls autopano-sift-C as a
4 dependency: sift? ( media-gfx/autopano-sift-C ). The SIFT algorithm used
5 to be patented [1] which could be a possible reason why the dependency
6 was not enabled by default, though you might have to ask the maintainer
7 for that. The patent is expired as of this year, so there is probably
8 little reason to not enable the USE flag for you. "autopano-noop" is an
9 obsolete wrapper [2] for autopano-sift-C which might be an artifact from
10 an earlier hugin version upgrade.
11 Anyway, good that you got it to work.
13 Sincerely,
14 Meik
