How to create aligned JPEGs rather than TIFFs?

Asked by Nigel

I'm creating a time-lapse video from 100s of still images. These first need to be aligned and I'm using Hugin to do that.

When I test align 50 .jpg files the output of stitcher is then 50 .tiff files. All 8-10 times bigger than the original.

I've set the Preferences for Stitcher output to be jpeg, but that's never what I get.

How do I produce .jpg output?

This can't be done in the GUI, because the intermediate images needs to care information about the mask. This is not possible in JPEG images.
But this can be achieved on the command line with:
nona -m JPEG_m -o prefix file.pto
