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: Ghost Images - Grass

Using your method I have the problem of a dark spot around the sun. Do you have any suggestions how to solve that? I couldn't see any dark spots when I tried it. I had a look at using each of the 3 exposures as the photomatix base and tried the slider all the way from 0-100% I used the "Natura...

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...

Cropping in PTP to reduce 360x180 image

I read the posting by Leifs about the discontinuation of Adobe Flash in 2020 in this Forum and have been doing some preliminary tests as to which alternative approach to use to retain full multi-resolution on NON 360x180 panoramas (of which I have hundreds to address) The current situation is that t...

Re: Adobe will finally kill Flash in 2020

It is a shame Flash has become persona non grata with so many of the browsers I'm still hanging in there with Firefox but the days are now numbered from what I have read in here The big snag for me (and this is not a Kolor problem really) is that I don't generally make equirectangular (360x180) pano...

Re: Ghost Images - Grass

I downloaded your 21 images and did the pano using my method (merged using Photomatix 1st then created the panoramas using the 7 merged in=mages using APG) I got no ghosting at all and I am 99% sure that the problem is that you didn't actually have de-ghosting switched on I tried it at 0% and got so...

You would be better served uploading jpg versions of the 21 images to a dropbox link so others can experiment on your behalf

Re: Ghost Images - Grass

I know you can do this either way round but I would create 7 separate HDR images first (I use Photomatix) and then use Autopano Giga to stitch the 7 HDR images to generate 1 HDR panorama

I would be interested to see if the results you got were better using this method !

Re: Why the zoom level doesn't work? [SOLVED]

If the pano is not full equirectangular (360 x 180) and if you are using a recent version of PTP, then the display uses html5 graphics by default (and not Adobe Flashplayer) and gives a lower resolution

There are workarounds if this is the case and discussions on this forum

Re: Spherical Panos

Your pano does work fine for me both in "desktop" and "VR" mode, using PTP 2.5.7 on Linux. Just guessing here, but the image metadata contains some crop-info, maybe that gets taken into account somehow: $ exiftool 2-Entry.jpg|grep -i pixel Cropped Area Image Width Pixels : 7088 ...

There's definitely a bug in AutoPano 4.4.1 (both Windows and Linux) because I'm not getting the correct metadata added to the panorama.
