As a reminder: anyone can try Autopano 3.0 in the demo mode, and users having a legitimate registration key of version 2 can use it in the alpha and beta versions of Autopano 3.0.
This is the second beta version of Autopano Engine v3. We are in the
stage where we don’t add new features, we only corrects bugs.
We started this huge job with the new engine. You should have a quite
up to date English language as well as French with this release.
- Gigapan import plugin was broken. It works again.
- APG integration into Adobe Bridge CS6 under mac is fixed.
- Under some configurations, exifs metadata were not transfered from
input file to output panorama.
Using during beta stage
We believe in our community and in our customers that have been
supporting us for a long year on this version. The quality of a software
application doesn’t come only from the quality of the developer ( come on,
still a bit ), but from the quality of the communication between you
and us. So for the v3, we decided to do the following:
- You can try all alpha, beta of Autopano Pro/Giga for free during the
pre-release stage of the products. You can even remove the watermark as
soon as you have a legitimate v2 key.
- All betas are limited in time. This beta 2 version will expire end of
With this approach, you can already start to use v3 in production work (
at your own risk, of course ). I hope that you will enjoy the v3 and
report a lot of feedback on our forum about it.
Roadmap to the release
We are still in beta stage, so this mean bug only correction. With the
feedback from the forum, we still have some issues that seems important
for us: GPU support on latest NVidia drivers ( issue 1531 ), big panorama
rendering under linux ( issue 1499 ).
We are still aiming a final version for mid/end November.
