you post 2 images from final pano shown in a tour, one with black nadir, on with streched pano so it does have 360"x180".
and you post 2 images from autopano showing the pano does have 15242 x 6724 (360" x 158.83").
If you take this image and load it into panotour, you can decide to stretch the pano or to use the original values and have a black nadir in consequence... (panotour: Project Properties -> Projection -> input field of view)... if your image does have 158.83" and you set the Vertical value instead to 180, than you have the same result than in your sreenshot above (stretched to fill the black hole)
BUT you're also in correct forum here... see following thread - I jump directly to the posting showing the settings that affect your question: http://www.kolor.com/forum/p107684-2012 … 56#p107684 you can set the default crop to "maximimum projection range" and to "Clamp to panorama content"... so second one should give a non stretched result...
The problem is that I was looking for these settings AFTER import images ... and not before explaining how this forum, mediavets had already sent me this link but not found even why he was looking in the wrong place.
Many thanks mediavets and gkaefer !
Seizing the opportunity, also seen places here in the forum who took the tripod img cutting in photoshop and saving to TIFF with transparency, but when I import the imgs, transparent spaces ... turn white when rendering, missing some setting so that it is transparent?
If the 'pinched nadir' problem is displayed after you load the image into Panotour Pro and build a tour then it's because you have lost the custom Kolor EXIF tag - which provides pano FOV data to Panotour pro while post-processing the pano image before loading it into Panotour Pro.
The simplest way of avoiding this problem is to force the pano FOV to 360x180 while stitching in Autopano Pro/Giga (as I descrinbed inm my earlier post); then even if post-processing removes the custom Kolor EXIF tag the pano FOV will be correct in Panotour Pro based on the 2:1 aspect ratio of the pano image. If you haven't already patched the nadir then there wil be a 'hole' at the nadir. You can apply a nadir patch image (in Panotour pro) or use the (virtual) Crop tool in Panotour pro to restitc the VFOV so that people viewing the tour cannot see the nadir 'hole'.
If this doesn't resolve your problem may I suggest you make a sample 7-image set available for download so that we can test stitch and try to understand what you are talking about.
