Meshroom 2020 now has an HD/R stitching option, and it is free.

You might like to try PtGui, the trial version. It’s not free and not necessarily better but you might find it easier and better behaved.

Thanks for allowing me in. A little about myself. I've been doing astrophotography for many years and occasionally want to image an object that is larger than the field of view of my equipment. The obvious way of doing that is to image the object in sections
and then stitch them together to form one complete image. In the past I have been using photoshop to manually match the segments and back grounds. A difficult problem at times. An acquaintance put me on to Hugin so I loaded up version 2012 and gave it a try
on the, Pleiades. To my pleasant surprise it did a very good job of combining the 2x3 image grid into a single picture.
Later When I tried to open Hugin again, it requested the lens info twice and then quit. I tried it several more time even after rebooting the PC but still no luck. I decided to un install2012 and get the latest from the website 2019.2 for 64bit WIndows10
When I first started the new version it complained about open GL not available. After rerunning it I got no more errors and loaded my 8 images 2x4 grid mosaic. Each image is 3020x1985 with an overlap of about 10%. I selected the points automatically but noticed
there were no points is some of the images on the top and bottom edge so I added them.
Finally when I click the STITCH button it fails.
The log is attached.
Any help would be appreciated. If I'm using the wrong program to stitch these mosaics together perhaps someone can recommend one that would work better.
