Re: "Fog" on Stacked panos

You didn't say what product you used to fuse the bracketed images I use Photomatix and I have also noted these foggy patches in bright areas The way I minimise this is: 1. Use the lowest EV (-2EV for me) as the base 2. Use the lowest setting possible for deghosting whilst still removing ghosts prope...

Re: Poor quality image... [SOLVED]

take a look at this earlier thread and the link inside it for likely causes and resolutions for non 360x180 panos

Re: No EXIF data for Facebook?

It doesn't have to be a 360 x 180 panorama but I think it has to use the "Spherical" not the "Cylindrical" projection in APG Also, the exif data that Facebook uses (in the XMP section) can be overwritten, deleted or corrupted by some 3rd party editing software if you have done an...

Re: Stitching all blurry

This is how I did it Open APG and using Settings | Images to set 13mm Fisheye as default lens type then save and close APG img1.jpg Shift click on the list of 7 images to select them all then with the CTRL PTS tab open shift click on the list of Control Points to select them all then right click on ...

Re: Stitching all blurry

Hi Caleb None of your images had and lens focal length data in the exif data so no surprise there were stitching and rendering issues Your 8mm Fisheye should be set up as a lens to use if no exif data found as 13mm effective focal length (35mm) In addition you had much too much overlap between the i...

Re: Not recognizing 360° Panos correctly after editing

When a jpg is stitched by APG it uses the panorama's EXIF data to store several data items relevant to Panotour in the USER_COMMENT part of the EXIF layout Sadly all 3rd party editing programs which are used to edit stitching errors or alter the colour, contrast, saturation etc corrupt or remove thi...

Re: Gigapixel sharpness in Panotour [SOLVED]

If the image is not spherical (equirectangular, 360x180) then newer versions of PTP will use the later versions of krpano which do not use Adobe Flashplayer for high resolution You will only get html5 graphics at the resolution of the cube faces which is noticeably lower than Flash There are workaro...

Re: Overexposed render

I agree Photomatix is a better option but from the way you described your process it didn't sound as though you actually invoked APG Fusion at all You have to click on the Fusion option on the ring menu (2 overlapping squares just right of colour/gamma control) then enable Fusion on the sub screen w...

Re: GoPro FUSION 360 :)

For those with access to the BBC programme CLICK, they were looking at and evaluating two 360 cameras (in video mode) - namely the offerings from Nikon and Kodak

Re: Preview Shows Perfect Stitch?

I seem to recall a lengthy discussion on this very topic with Kolor a few years ago As I recall the preview you get whist in the editor and checking for errors, masking, blending etc. is a cut down version of the final render. This is usually because the preview is only processing the data visible i...

Re: Proper HDR workflow

I went through all the presets some time ago and also tried some of my own concoctions. I was trying to keep away from the exaggerated effects that you can get with some of these options that make them look a bit "cartoonish" I may revisit though as I haven't done this since v4 and they ar...

Re: Proper HDR workflow

Here's a comparison using another image (I deleted the first one) where you can see the difference between "Natural" and a preset using "Contrast Optimizer" This time, I didn't apply any chromatic aberration removal in Lightroom. Only slight removal in DXO which doesn't make any...

Re: Proper HDR workflow

The reason why you have a hard time seeing the difference is because I've done my best to remove the chromatic aberration in the affected imagers (without using the brush tool). Which is pretty stupid if I want to prove a point :) But you know what, I just made another discovery. I was about to sho...

Re: Proper HDR workflow

However, I find it interesting that you recommend the "Natural" preset. The result is very close to what I achieve with the HDR fusion in APG and both of them have one BIG flaw. They both add virtual achromatic aberration. Sometimes so severe that you need really aggressive setting to rem...

Re: Proper HDR workflow

I wanted to see if I too can improve my workflow and found this thread. I see most of you use photomatix. I've tried to use both photomatix and easyhdr to fuse the stacks on multiple occasions but I've never seen any major improvement over fusing the images directly in APG. Most of my experience wi...

Re: How to avoid FLASH ?

Dear Martin, thanks ! My panos indeed meet the 360x180-criteria to the fullest so I do not need to resize or use any workaround.

Re: Cropping in PTP to reduce 360x180 image

I was interested in trying out the registry hack (after backing uo !) but it looks as though the content of the "general" subfolder has been redefined without the parameter being defined any more (I tried PTP 2.5.0 and 2.5.8) I have an old version of PT (2.1) still set up and I found it in...
