I upgraded to APG 3some days ago and i really like it, BUT i do have a problem.
at the moment i am stichting a 661 pic planar Panorma, shot with a 300mm fixed focal lens on APSC ( 450mm on 35mm Film).
Intel i7 2700k 3,4Ghz 16GB Ram nVidia Geforce 570
Yesterday i did a "partial" stitch with around 400 Pics and it worked very well (like almost always). I chose to render a 25% output and it was still a 900mb tiff file. I needed around 10-15minutes, maybe 1hour.
But today i finally tried to stich together the "final" result. At first i rendered a 10% output which is around 14000x 1500 pix. but it need very very long.
Then i tried a 25% output, which is still not ready and is at least rendering for 3-4h
Some pics now have an alternate Filename, like "Pic1312_corrected" an i dont know why not all pics have this corrected version of themselfs and why it is soo slow
PS: and autopano always resets the temp folder. i have a dedicated hard drive für thinks like that ( temp things, caches etc.) but almost everytime i restart autopano it is reseted to some ...Folder in C: AppData.
Hi Mehlsack, my old laptop (4gb ram, intel 4 core) takes more than a day for a 660 pic rendering at 100%. So be patient. 15 minutes for the 400 pics 25% is a great time.
You should have a look at the settings, cache division. Set it to a value so that the "pixel size" (in german: Ausgabeformat kann nicht größer als XXXX Pixel sein) is a little bit larger than the resulting x-axis of your pano. You see the pano size of your project in the main window. If there is really a resource problem on your pc, you should suspect the cache division first. After changing the value apg must be restarted.
The reset of the temp folder sounds like a problem with file access rights. Reinstall of apg?
