I'd like to request a change in the way Autopano Giga recognizes file locations, at least for the OS X version.
I often move my work from a laptop to a desktop, and with every move, I have to tell APG where the files are located, even though the locations are still the same (relatively) as the .pano files.
For example, I use a folder structure like this:
November Panos (home folder containing the below folders and files) pano 1 (folder containing Group 1's JPGs) Group 1.pano pano 2 (folder containing Group 2's JPGs) Group 2.pano pano 3 (folder containing Group 3's JPGs) Group 3.pano
and so one for each panoramic image for that particular month.
When I move the entire November Panos folder to another computer, I have to relink each set of images to each .pano file.
I'd love to see a different way for APG to handle files when moved to another computer, basically using relative locations instead of absolute locations.
Probably the best thing to do, from a users perspective, would be to store both the full path and a relative path. Then, when reopening the pano, if the images are not present at the full path, try the relative path.
As an alternative to storing a relative path to each image, the pano file could store a full path to itself, and use that to calculate the relative paths of the images if it's moved.
