What’s new?

D.WARP for 6 and 7 camera rigs

The D.WARP technology is now compatible with 6 and 7 camera configurations. We have tested and approved it on select RIGs, and welcome you to try it with your own RIG.

D.WARP presets

You can now choose between two D.WARP presets, prioritize space and prioritize time. See changelog for full details.

Improved batch renderer

We’ve worked on improving the batch renderer, you can now reorganize the rendering list and more importantly adjust the render settings of a project directly from the rendered window, without having to reopen the project.

Compatibility

Autopano Video 3.0 requires at least Windows 7 or Mac OS X 10.10.

Roadmap to final release

We decided to go with a very incremental update policy for the Alpha – Beta period. We will release new updates as often as possible until we have a release candidate. A lot of cool stuff is coming!
We hope to get plenty of feedback on this new version, it is important for users to post their feedback, comments and bug reports in the right forum.

Main changes

This is the second Alpha version of Autopano Video 3.0. We worked hard to make D.WARP feature compatible with 6 and 7 cameras rigs. We chose to expose to presets for the D.WARP feature: prioritize time or space. We also worked on the batch renderer to make it more efficient and more convenient to use.

Even if this is a 3.0 version, you have to register this version with a v2 key, which will be accepted all throughout the alpha-testing phase. This means that this version is time-locked, and will lock itself (removing the registration) around the time a new alpha, beta or the final release comes. When the final version is released, you will need an upgraded version 3 key to use the software. If you've lost your license key, you can retrieve it at any time from your user account.


D.WARP for 6 and 7 cameras rigs

The D.WARP technology is now compatible with 6 and 7 camera configurations. We tested and approved it on Freedom360 Classic Mount, 360RIZE H3PRO6 and 360 RIZE H3PRO7. Even if it has been approved on this three rigs only, you can try it on any 6 or 7 cameras.


D.WARP presets

You can now choose between two D.WARP presets:

  • Prioritize space: the default preset, already used in Alpha 1. "Try to correct as much parallax artifact as possible: correction can be very different from one frame to another." You should use it when everything is moving in your scene, and when you have fast space or subject changes.
  • Prioritize time (slower): "Try to correct parallax artifact with greater respect to temporal coherency: moving objects can be less corrected but your background won't be moving." You should use it for a static camera scene.

Improved batch renderer

We worked a lot on the new batch renderer. You are now able to change the settings of a project directly into the batch render list without opening it, you can open the directory or the file rendered with a right-click and and you are also able to reorganize your rendering list.
