Main changes

This new stable release is about Autopano Engine v3.6. It includes some new features and fixes.

Compared to Autopano Engine v3.5, here are the new features:

NCTech iStar plugin

We introduced a new plugin in Autopano Giga to be able to quickly stitch images produced by the NCTech iStar camera. This high end camera is mainly used for photogrametry and forensic. With this plugin, you can have a fully automatic workflow with this camera. It supports batch stitching, as well as bracketing.

You first need to develop iStar Raw format with software provided with the camera and then, you can use this plugin to get a nearly perfect stitch in any case.

Miscellanous improvements

  • Maximum size: With video stitching, it can happen that the maximum size of panorama is nearly 4K, but not really 4K just because of some pixels. Many users expressed the need to be able to render a bit over the maximum size allowed by the input source files. We unlocked that limit to be able to do so.
  • OpenEXR: For VFX industry, it is really important to have a real 32bits workflow. We had that already but not for the EXR format which was 16bits float (commonly named half-float) and not 32bits float. We rewrote the EXR file format support to allow true 32bits export. We used that revamp to add support of the latest compression algorithms allowed by EXR. They can all be used now in the software.
