I think that there is a problem with rendering panorama which uses fisheye photos.
Set: - Samyang 8mm x crop 1,59 - 6 Photos in row (3bkt in stacks) + 1 zenith
result ~ 360x175 deg
Color corrections - none or ldr (no difference)
Render settings: - Antighost, save as tiff uncompressed, panorama + layers
100% output is about 12500 x 6100px
When rendering, usually in some between warping and antighost phase apg crashes - closing without any message. This situation is for 90% renderings. Sometimes it is possible to have succesfull render when set dimensions to about 3000x1400px.
The same settings on panorama which uses rectlinear wide angle (canon 10-22, 13mm set) and everything is ok.
At the moment "fisheye" set is completely unusuable.
Two platforms: Win7 64bit, 8gb & 4gb, both core2duo
If somebody can download it and check render process i'll be thankful.
Was this the image set you were working with?
1. Why try and do exposure bracketing with this sort of scene which has people moving? It's not going to work when you try and 'merge' the exposures and in any case in this scene it seems to me it was quite unnecessary.
With a scene like this I think you'd do better to raise the ISO, and shoot with a larger aperture, and shoot FAST, to avoid/minimise ghosting due to people moving.
2. I just took the 'middle' exposure set and it stitched easily to a 360x180.
3. If your source images are JPEGS why did you choose to try and render as a uncompressed TIFF layers.
I tried to reproduce this crash and was not able to make it crash. The bug involved in probably already solved for next beta. So, I won't close this issue yet, it has to be confirmed with next release.
I've loaded my pano set which likes to crash on Antighost phase. Then, I've removed some images from panorama in Editor (1 or 2 images). In this case rendering is successfull (more images deleted = more chance for successfull render). Ofcourse the final render has black gaps, but it is possible to render again with another images removed, so I can merge this to files to one full pano in photoshop .
Ofcourse this should not be typical workflow, it's quite 'crazy' .
I stitched your sources images and rendered the pano with antighost: no problem. I loaded your project file, launched rendering: it crashed. As your project includes many unlinked source images (see screen capture) I placed hard links on these images: no more crash.
Suggestion : antighost crashes when encountering unlinked images ?
