This tool creates photoscenery BGLs from Imagery, which has been downloaded with Ortho4XP for P3D.
The tool creates the blend- and watermask, based on shapefiles and resamples.
Furthermore, it is able to create 5 seasons (winter, hardwinter (snow), spring, summer and fall) and can change/enhance the colors of the Ortho4XP imagery.
To avoid loading problems when creating huge areas, this tool merges around 50-100 single images into one bgl.

Illustrated manual and sample run

Important:
You need a working ArcGIS Desktop installation!
For personal use ESRI charges 100 $/year:
ArcGIS Desktop already comes with Python2.7 and the ArcPy interface.

Changelog:

2020-05-21 Fixed an error that incorrectly creates the resample.inf when using seasons and Path error of ImageMagick fixed
