Title: BarracudaGUI for cr2hdr dual iso raw post-processing (Windows XP/7/8)
Post by: sepa on October 30, 2013, 07:06:13 PM
Hi there,

i take many dual iso raw files with my 700d, and so i developed an "easy to use" Windows front end for the cr2hdr post-processor.
This software is written in C#, .NET Framework 4. Windows 7/8/8.1 users can use it out-of-the-box.  XP users may install the latest .NET Framework 4.

The front end automatically determined the number of simultaneous threads of our cpu.
You can add CR2 files by the "Add CR2 files" button or simply by drag&drop CR2 files directly into the file list.

I hope it's useful  :)

Screenshot version 0.3.5.0

13-11-05 Fixed: Improve CR2 ListView handling (remove selected items by pressing delete key, double click items to open the standard application)

How to use:

Requirements:
BarracudeGUI requires the following files to run correctly.

BarracudaGUI.exe (program itself)
BarracudaGUI.ini (will be create automatic after first start)
Microsoft.WindowsAPICodePack.dll (in the same folder as BarracudaGUI.exe)
Microsoft.WindowsAPICodePack.Shell.dll (in the same folder as BarracudaGUI.exe)
A path to exiftool.exe (included in the cr2hdr.zip (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.0))
A suitable postprocessing program like cr2hdr.exe (requires itself dcraw.exe and exiftool.exe)

1. Download / unpack cr2hdr.zip (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.0)
2. Download and unpack the BarracudaGUI zip file.
3. Start BarracudaGUI, choose the path of postprocessing program (e.g. cr2hdr.exe), exiftool.exe and select the folder for dng output.
4. Add/drag any dual iso raw files into the queue list an press "Start postprocessing".
5. After finishing postprocessing take a look to the dng output folder

That's it.

Looks hot, better than having to run it from the command w/msys.

Also, can it support the 2x2 AMAZE options, etc.

This looks fantastic. I would add it to my workflow if I could give it a command line parameter pointing it to a folder to process, and if there were an option not to rename the files that way. A destination folder command line option would be a plus too.

How does it determine how many threads? By the number of cores? I find that my machine seems to go fastest with as many as ten threads running at once.

Maybe you could just pass through all command line parameters for cr2hdr.

Yeah, sounds interesting.
Maybe?: barracudagui.exe --source <folderpath> --export <folderpath> and automatic start of postprocessing

What do you mean with "A destination folder command line option would be a plus too."?

How does it determine how many threads? By the number of cores? I find that my machine seems to go fastest with as many as ten threads running at once.

By ThreadPool.GetMinThreads Method. I've tested with more than the maximum simultan threads of my cpu (Core i5 3570K, 4 cores / 4 threads) and there was no performance benefit.

Maybe you could just pass through all command line parameters for cr2hdr.

Next version contain a "commandline parameters" setting for the post processor application.

The ability to specify where the processed files end up. I guess that's what the --export option you have there would be.

I have the same processor and I've experienced better speeds with more processes. I tested this with Enfuse though.

Ok, I just ran some tests with cr2hdr (in the order listed). Interesting results:

6 at once = 42.8 seconds
6 at once = 41.3 seconds
4 at once = 38.3 seconds
4 at once = 37.2 seconds
8 at once = 36.3 seconds
8 at once = 36.9 seconds
2 at once = 61.1 seconds

Yea, missing is:

1. Option editor, especially path where to put DNG files, its always the same or you have to edit the .ini
2. Command line option like you said... ie cr2hdr--denoice -denoise/etc


Another option maybe:

some pics aren't dual iso and may have the prefix anyway. Would be nice for it to move non dual photos to another folder or subfolder. It gets really messy to check whats dual and what is not by hand on like 200+ photos.

05.11.13 Added: Normal CR2 raw files will be copy to the export folder. No moving.

This is good but why not move them?

For me it works like this:

Process folder
leave dual iso cr2 in one folder (in case cr2hdr is broken or improvements come)
import dng + non dual files into light-room.

In this case I still have to hunt down the non dual pics, a bit easier since you get a list but still not ideal :)

I won't deleting the orignal cr2 files by default. (in case BarracudaGUI is broken or something ;)) Maybe i make a new option in the next release.

Rename in place?

I get a general protection fault now after it tries to copy 1 file. Ok, seems on another folder it dies after first 4 threads finish. The files never get copied.

So I guess by command line support you mean just for cr2hdr and not source and destination parameters for barracudagui.exe?

Yes. See last line at http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9102.msg86105#msg86105 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9102.msg86105#msg86105).
You can also set an import folder for cr2 files. This folder will be load on startup.

--import, --export, --start options were logged as having been set, but the program didn't start processing.

Started manually. I should have left it open so I can read the log, but there were errors reading exif info/iso.

Didn't produce any .dng files.

Moved .cr2 files to export folder, which seemed odd. I would think it's supposed to move the .dng files.

I must be doing something stupid, but I'm not going to mess with it right now.

First attempt: Postprocessing by manual clicking

Folder: c:\tmp\hdrexport\ for dng/cr2 export, set in BarracudaGUI settings

Start manually by clicking "Start postprocessing"

After postprocessing the folder c:\tmp\hdrexport\ contains

Works correct.

Second attempt - Start BarracudaGUI.exe with commandline parameters:

c:\tools\BarracudaGUI\BarracudaGUI.exe --import:c:\tmp\cr2import --export:c:\tmp\hdrexport --start:true

Starts postprocessing automatically

After postprocessing the folder c:\tmp\hdrexport\ contains

Works correct.

Have been trying to get the BarracudaGUI program to recognize my Dual ISO CR2 files form a Canon 7D and also a Dual ISO CR2 file posted form Alex on his thread. Keep getting the following errors:

Error: Could not get Exif value (ISO)
Error: Could not get Exif value (CreateDate)

All files can be converted directly with the cr2hdr.exe program, just not through the BarracudaGUI. Looks like a great little program that I would use on a regular basis if I could get it to convert files on my system. Have tried program in Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and also Windows 8.1 64bit with the same results. Help on this would be greatly appreciated!!

Here are my BarracudaGUI.ini setting:

[BarracudaGUI]
PathCR2HDRInput=D:\Canon Tools\Dual_ISO Raw
PathDNGHDROutput=D:\Canon Tools\CR2HDR DNG
PathPostprocessor=D:\Canon Tools\CR2HDR\cr2hdr-hot.exe

Hey Sepa

Thanks for the reply and here are a couple of files to work with. I do have all three application located in the same folder with the following details:

cr2hdr-hot.exe   Date: 01/26/2014    324 kb
exiftool.exe        Date: 07/13/2013  4993 kb
dcraw.exe          Date: 08/01/2013    536 kb

Dual2419.cr2  is a photo that I took with my Canon 7D http://sdrv.ms/1bwLUt9 (http://sdrv.ms/1bwLUt9)
0R0A0640.cr2 is an image taken with a Canon 5D used by a1ex on his thread to illustrate Dual_ISO http://sdrv.ms/1bwMjvz (http://sdrv.ms/1bwMjvz)

Both CR2 images can be converted to DNG with just the cr2hdr-hot.exe application located in the same folder as the above mentioned files. Converting both files with BarracudaGUI, gives me the errors as mentioned before and then copies them into the export folder as CR2 files after conversion process has failed.

Title: Re: BarracudaGUI for cr2hdr dual iso raw post-processing (Windows XP/7/8)
Post by: beachman on January 29, 2014, 06:40:14 AM
Yes I have also tried it with the latest cr2hdr.exe Dated: 01/23/2014 Size: 326 kb and get the same result running the conversion through BarracudaGUI. I'm guessing it could be two possible problems:

1. I have a version of exiftools.exe that cannot read the proper information.
2. The required EXIF information is not within the raw CR2 files.

This is just my educated guess and could be something totally different. If someone else can successfully convert the files I have posted through there install of BarracuadGUI, I would then be able to eliminate some possible scenarios. Thanks in advance!!

Below is a link to a screen shot showing the run-time process of BarracudaGUI, hope it helps to solve this problem:

Hey Spider

Tried processing your file and get the same errors that I have been getting with DualISO photos taken on my Canon 7D. Do you get the same run time error as indicated in my earlier post? I hope Sepa can get this resolved as it looks like a great application and I would like to incorporate this GUI in my post processing workflow.

Which means the command "dcraw"(exiftool) is wrong written or could not be found.
dcraw.exe, exiftool.exe and cr2hdr-hot.exe are located in the same folder.

When I try to process a picture which is located on the HDD I get an error and the picture is just copied.
But if the picture is located on the SD card the processing works fine.

You have space character in folder name - "Meine Bilder". Change it with underscore "Meine_Bilder" and the problem will go away.

Post by: Audionut on March 17, 2014, 09:05:31 AM
No useful debugging info.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34113196/gui.PNG

It crashes as soon as the DNG's are created in the source folder.  As you can see in the screenshot, even just processing 3 files made it crash.  With export folder = import folder, it still crashes.  I tried running with admin privileges, didn't make a difference.

Do you have a debug build?

edit:  With export folder as a different folder to the input, I get the 3 files in the export folder, and I had 2 DNG's left in the input folder.  It would appear that the crash is related to moving files.

Hey Sepa

This is what I tried:

1. I had a space in my output destination folder PathDNGHDROutput=D:\CanonTools\CR2HDR DNG and get the following result:

(http://i.imgur.com/0H3AAbw.jpg)

Both images are converted but only 1 of the images was moved to the output path before program crashes (Note: this works fine in Barracuda 0.3.1)

2. Removed space in my output destination folder PathDNGHDROutput=D:\CanonTools\CR2HDR_DNG and get the following result:

(http://i.imgur.com/WbyMfoN.jpg)

Both files or converted and copied to output destination path before crashing program.

3. Tried 4 images with no spaces in any of the path names, all images are converted but only 2 of the images are moved to the output path before Barracuda program stop working.

Hope this help as this going to be a great little program when all the bugs get worked out!!

Hello sepa

Tried your 0.3.3 test version with some interesting results. The program still fails but all raw file are converted and only one is moved to the output destination directory. Would it be possible that BarracudaGUI is trying to move files that have not been written to the hard drive completely or the conversion process is still being implemented. I have include the text from the xml crash dump, if you want the other two dump files, let me know as I have them as well. Good luck and let me know if I can help some more!!

The cpu usage has remained steady at 40% roughly and its still going.

Has it hanged or does it really take this absurd amount of time per image?! lol

Still getting a crash here.

It processes 8 files (determined by processing settings), but then crashes after moving the second DNG file.  This is even when the output directory is the same as the input directory.

I actually get the 8 DNG files output, but something is going on with the file management.

Feature requests:
cr2hdr now contains a command option that matches the white level for all images processed, in a single command line.  --same-levels
Is it possible to provide an option, whereby, all selected images are parsed to the same command line?  Actually, will this already work with multithreaded set to 1, or do you spawn a new command for each file?

What about making some of the command parameters, nice looking toggle buttons, or drop down boxes?

A suggestion that I made in the LR plugin thread, but could be useful here too:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11056.msg111410#msg111410

Since some command-line options change fairly often, it may be a good idea to parse the help text (when you run cr2hdr without any arguments) and generate the GUI widgets (checkboxes) according to it. Or, if this is too difficult to program, just display the help in a message box.

# optimized parsing of commandline parameters

Any additional suggestions?

This might require some significant refactoring of your app.  If so, it might actually be better to do this directly via exiftool somehow.

Hi,

On my W8 pc running v0.3.5.0 of BarracudaGUI, the application hangs (no error messages).

Original content of this post deleted as I found out what the problem was. i.e.: the input file path cannot have spaces or the exiftools background processes hang.

Can the script be changed to pass the file paths wrapped in quotes?  This should eliminate the problem.

On my Windows7 pc running v0.3.5.0 of BarracudaGUI when I use  "--compress" or "--compress-lossy" option I got an error message, (DNG not found!) and the CR2 files are copied into the destination folder without converting them to DNG.

Without the compress options everything works well, and after this I can manually compress the DNGs with
Adobe DNG Converter.exe - only the automatic setting is not working.

after processing "Img_0330.cr2" returned only "IMG_0330.ppm" .... processing didnt start

- Win7
- Baracuda extracted from zip
- no BarracudaGUI.ini
- cr2hdr.exe drag&drop conversion is working

(also it is hard to find settings. File>Settings is not obvious)

How do you get the BarracudaGUI settings dioalogue box to appear as in the first post or has it been done away with?

Sorry, found it.

Simple and complete.

Could you do the same for mlv_dump?

Cheers

Hi.

The is a extremely strange issue. My barracuda gui installation just disappered. When I try to download barracudagui 0.3.5.0 setup.exe, it's automaticly deleted?! I deactivated my anti virus, but I still can't use it. wtf? :(

Edit: Blame norton. It says the exe is not safe and deleted it. (but said nothing about that!)

Hi, I was using Barracuda GUI and I was having issues when using amaze-edge and cs5x5. As it turns out, it looks like it's having issues with the latest version of exiftool since it gets stuck on that step. If I turn of all options it exports just fine.

I had to dig out an old version of exif tool from 2013 and it works perfectly.

Does this software convert dual iso DNG that have been converted from MLV to cDNG by raw2cdng for instance. I am looking for a solution for video not images in win 7.

first of all thank you sepa for your work. It's amazing :)

I got the latest version of BarracudaGUI 0.3.5.0 and it turns on Wine under Ubuntu Studio 16.04 64 bits and using dual_ISO files from a 5dm2.

I made two installations on my two pc's with two erreurs that I would like to repair.

1. path to .exe program
2. path to the destination folder

First I wanted to ininstall and reinstall to make a fresh .ini that didn't work.
Can you please tell me how to change these paths or make a fresh install.

Thanks.

Hey guys!

Dont want to feel like im bringing up old news.... but I was wondering if someone can help me... I'm on a 5D Miii. Latest nightly build.

I'm Using Dual ISO with Raw video. This is what happens when I dump in DNG files I get using MLRawViewer 1.3.3 to preview and extract the files. Is there a better way of doing it?

(http://i64.tinypic.com/xc1yip.png)

It's showing errors, but it's doing the job.....however the ISO values it is using are incorrect from the looks of those lines (800/200).

The ISO I use was 800 and the recovery ISO I used was 3200.
