Decapod 0.5

Decapod 0.5 Release Dates

tbd

UI Development:

Server:

Design:

  • Generate Stereo Calibration wireframes if necessary (check with progress / velocity of 3D stereoi dewarp at this time).

All Issues for Release 0.5

"0.6 Release" - Automatic Post-Capture Processing and Performance

  • Speed up capture time
    • Measure capture and stitching performance.
    • Should we process large resolution images post capture or on export (and use scaled versions post-capture?).
  • Early 3D dewarping
  • Better font generation
  • More usable PDFs

All Issues for Release 0.6

"1.0 Release"

Numbers in brackets indicate priority. (1) = highest. (3) = lowest.

Book management

See Decapod Dashboard Wireframe.

(warning) Related to mock server "session" management?

  • begin a book (1) (Unscheduled, related to mock server sessions?)
  • list of all books (2) (Unscheduled)
  • resume a book (probably the default action) (2) (Unscheduled)
  • inport Decapod book from disk
  • book-specific operations:
    • delete, (3) (Unscheduled)
    • export, (3) (Unscheduled)
    • editing metadata, (3) (Unscheduled)
    • general information (size, location) (3) (Unscheduled)

Calibration

Early Wireframe

booklib-style (1) (Release 0.5)

  • camera rotation: test pictures with both cameras, may need to reorient pages (via software transform)
  • identifying left page-right page cameras
  • book positioning, s.t. individual pages are fully captured (may involve repositioning book and/or cameras)
  • possibly doable in one-step

stereo (1) (Release 0.5 or Release 0.6)

  • camera position information: multiple surface pictures (live preview likely not available)
  • ensuring book spread is in complete view for both cameras (each camera has to capture both pages fully)
    general
  • camera connections & support

Capture/editing/page-level management

  • manual capture: (1)
    • keyboard (Release 0.5)
    • mouse (Release 0.3)
    • pedal input (Unscheduled)
  • delete pages (1) (Release 0.3, 0.4)
  • reorder pages:
    • near-reorder (Release 0.3) (1)
  • recalibration (1) (Release 0.5)
  • progress indication (possibly; unless we backload all the heavy processing and deal with downscaled images during user workflow)/feedback (1)
  • Stereo dewarp (1) (Release 0.6)
  • Post-capture Quality control: automatic binarizing, book frame, content bounding, deskewing automatically (1)
  • auto-capture (time interval) (2) (unscheduled)
  • live preview, if supported (2) (unscheduled)
  • document metadata (2) (unscheduled)
  • undo delete/reorder (2) (unscheduled)
  • Post-capture Quality control: manual interaction (hence UIs) may be needed if results are poor.* insertion* (2) (unscheduled)
  • zoom/loupe/100% crop (3) (unscheduled)
  • recapture* (3) (unscheduled)
  • draggable Capture insert position
  • grid and list views
  • recapture
  • Thumbnails: Post Capture Processing indicators
    • Image in Queue
    • Image being processed
    • Image processed
  • Page Preview:
    • "Click anywhere to capture" control
    • Display "raw" left and right images if not processed.
    • Display processed images if processed

*Bounding boxes:

    • Left and right bounding boxes
    • Single bounding box
    • Apply-left bounding box to subsequent left pages.
    • Apply-right bounding box to subsequent right pages.
    • Collision detection and error message.

Export (could happen at book management or capture stage)

  • Export to PDF:
    • pdf-image (1) (Release 0.3)
    • pdf with images and ocr (1) (Release 0.6)
    • pdf with generated fonts*(1)* (Release 0.6)
    • pdf with generated fonts and OCR.
    • See Decapod 0.3 Design - Export (1)
  • Export to Binary Formats:
    • unprocessed multipage TIFF (1) (unscheduled)
    • processed PNGs
    • Dewarped TIFFs (no other processing).
  • Export to Decapod formats:
    • Full Decapod package
    • Basic Decapod package (only what is needed to generate PDFs)
  • preview before export? (3)
  • possible link to the file afterward so they can open it (3)

End User Deliverable and Packaging

  • Easy installation
    • Double-click install
    • Live CD install
  • System support matrix.
    • Cameras. See gphoto2 testing
    • Library versions for camera support
    • Minimum system req's (related to benchmarking?)
