Optimisation (APG 4.4)

I'm thinking of upgrading my machine for faster rendering and have been looking at the resources APG uses with Windows Task Manager/Resource Monitor. It seems that during the initial optimisation phase APG only uses the CPU and RAM (i.e. no disks). What puzzles me is why CPU utilisation is only arou...

Re: Is the AMD Ryzen a good choice for Autopano Giga?

FWIW I have come to the conclusion - or strong suspicion - that the answer to my question is "No, not yet". This is based on good evidence that Ryzens are not stable with 64GB RAM. Yes, there are people who have done this but the experience of a friend of a friend who builds machines to te...

Re: Is the AMD Ryzen a good choice for Autopano Giga?

Ah, all is now clear - thanks. Budget for barebones system mentioned above. Windows. The point you make about the Ryzen is a good one - thanks. It supports my gut feeling that right now I want an Intel CPU. I would like to support AMD because Ryzen is too new. The question now is how to split my mon...

Forum Email Address

I want to change the email address associated with my forum login. I assumed it would be somewhere under my profile, but I can't see it. Can somebody tell me where to look please? <whimper>

Re: Is the AMD Ryzen a good choice for Autopano Giga?

Thanks again. I don't know what you mean when you say "I don't know what kind of configuration you plan to buy." I am not sure what sorts of configurations there are to choose from. I want something that runs APG and Photoshop as fast as possible - period. Beyond that I program for fun, mo...

Re: Is the AMD Ryzen a good choice for Autopano Giga?

Thanks for the info about multi/singlethreading. It is difficult to make decisions about system architecture when most of the reviews etc are based on the assumption you want to play games rather than use APG. I am interested to know in what way the configuration depends on how long I intend to keep...

Is the AMD Ryzen a good choice for Autopano Giga?

I have a Core i7 CPU with 16GB RAM and a cheap 2GB graphics card. I want to make gigapixel panos (less than say 50Gpix), preferably using bracketing/HDR. I have been wanting to upgrade my system for some time and now we have the Ryzen ... A friend says that the Ryzen is good particularly good if the...

Re: Proper HDR workflow

My experience is that I need different workflows for different panos depending on (1) how well APG handles the set of images, (2) how big the resulting pano is and (3) the effect I want to achieve. This is quite a useful guide: http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/view/LDR_/_HDR_:_How_it_works althou...
