Re: Back focus pano stacking on custom medium format system.

Haven't looked in here for a long time, but just happened upon your post. I do some focus stacking and some panorama stuff, but haven't attempted a combination of both, so take my comments with a grain of salt. With regards to workflow, I would definitely first do the focus stacking and then the sti...

No-Parallax-Point and 10-24mm lens

In the past, I just shot mostly hand-held panoramas. Just recently, I started trying to find the no-parallax-point (NPP) of my Fuji XF 10-24mm zoom lens, using an indexing rotator and an arca rail. I did this only at the 10mm end of the lens so far (this is on an APS-C sensor, so not fish-eye territ...

Discrepancy between editor and preview/render

I made simple panorama a while ago (four shots in one row, hand-held), and it looks perfectly fine, when opened in the editor. If the preview is activated and also in he final render, however, the stitching in the foreground where the water meets the beach is messed up. Here's the pano in the editor...

Samyang 8mm plus 14mm vs. 10-24 zoom?

A while ago I got a Fuji X-E1 with kit lens (18-55 zoom, great combo) and a bit later the Samyang 8mm fisheye. The Samyang is a fun lens and it's nice to have around. The idea behind getting it was also to try my hand at some full spherical panoramas, but so far, I only did a few test panos, which c...

Thanks, very informative.
Upon further reading on the DxO website, I found out out that they don't support the X-Trans sensor in my Fujis, though.

Autopano vs DxO ViewPoint

Just stumbled upon DxO ViewPoint on another forum ( http://www.dxo.com/intl/photography/dxo-viewpoint ), which seems to be tailored towards lens and perspective corrections. Made me wonder, how AP compares to DxO in this regard? Have never tried this, but could you perform the corrections that DxO d...

I'm not an expert in Autopano, but I have some experience with microscopic images (although not so much with stitching them). I assume, you don't have a motorized stage. These usually have nanometer precision, which allows you to just assemble a montage from individual images (no stitching needed). ...

Hmm, that might work on a Mac (?), but certainly not on a Windows machine.

<quote>What 'portable feature' is that?</quote> 'portable feature' is maybe not the best way to put it, but as mentioned further up, it's simply the possibility to run APP in a portable mode (e.g. from a USB stick, having all settings in an ini or xml file (instead of the registry) and allowing for ...

I just upgraded to the new AP 2.0.1 (quite an exercise, as I was confronted solely with websites in French to buy the new license) and - as far as I can tell - it seems like the portable feature didn't make it into the new version. A bit disappointing, as this was one of the major reasons for me to ...

A portable version should be easy to write... That sounds promising. Would be nice to see that in one of the upcoming versions A personal feeling : I never found U3 system or such portable stuff a great thing to use. But I'm not a moving guy so perhaps I never faced the need. Is this really useful ...

Running Ubuntu would be a bit overkill. I'm aware of MojoPac, but dislike the concept, as you need admin rights to run it on the host machine (or you have to install Usher). There are many ways to make applications portable with a) NSIS wrappers (requires programming experience I don't have), b) Thi...

Portable version of APP...

Would be nice to be able to carry APP around on my USB stick.

It doesn't seem to write that much stuff into the registry and I'd love to see a portable version where you could re-direct settings, registration info etc. into an ini file.

Portable version of AutoPano possible?

I'm switching computers fairly often or re-install my OSes on a regular basis. Thus, I really like programs, that don't require an installer and give you the option to write settings into an ini file instead of the registry. That also makes it possible to run these programs e.g. from a USB stick or ...
