I'd love you to show me that I do. I get one folder for each pano with one copy of each file in it.

What you are seeing is that I had to crop the arm of the NN5 quite drastically out of the image due to shooting at -15 degrees and as such lost the bottom part of the image circle. There is no image information for the middle part of the tripod head so PTGUI has to stretch the image to make the full...

Klaus, these were sharpened in post, I shoot in RAW, I redid the file with zero post process sharpening and 70% of the problem went away but the file still looked very sharp, too sharp in fact, I'll bet the flash downrezzing alogorithm adds its own sharpening which was causing the problem. In any ca...

The pano wasn't done with APG, it's from PTGui, am I allowed to say that here? :-)

Tried it in the beta with the 'distortion' control, if anything worse. The shimmering seems to be moire, it's only along high frequency edges. PT is only outputting one set of files per pano, there doesn't seem to be any multi resolution output. I've tried to reduce the moire with non sharpened file...

OK I've uploaded that first pano for you to play with. Many thanks! Shot with the Siggy 8mm f3.5, 4 shots at -15 degree and a zenith at 90 degrees on an NN5.

Been through, it's only one image which is not a perfect 2:1 ratio. That first image with the worst shimmering is 5868x2934. I don't have the beta I'm afraid, bit wary of ever putting beta software on my computer.

Photoshop is automatically mapping it as a 2:1 ratio eventhough as you say 5898/2 is not 2948 so it can't be exactly 2:1

I'm going to set it to exact 2:1 ratio and see if it changes anything. As always thanks for your help, advice and time!

I'll report back soon...

Not according to photoshop, they're spot on for a 360X180 ratio at the pixel level. What am I doing wrong?

Check the unembedded output and you will see.

I checked the unembedded output, just one picture per panel, no multi res versions. Sorry.

The stitches are perfect. I can upload one if you want to have a look, no ghosting at all. I have a problem with the zenith I admit and am trying to fix but the rest of the image is stitched perfectly. The NPP is perfect to within 3 pixels and I can't get better than that in the field.

Shimmering

Hi, Here is a VT I made this week. http://www.studio-beni.net/Town.html There is a very bad shimmering happening albeit better at full screen. I'm informed this is due to the flash downsizing of the panels and saving the VT with multi resolution panels would solve the problem however Panotour Pro do...

Help and colour

Hi,

Having the help splash screen is great but it takes on the colour of the buttons and makes it practically unreadable. Any ideas?

Looking forward! It would be nice to have the ease and automation of APP for this work rather than the more powerful but certainly more manual workflow of PTgui.

Nope, coverted from RAW in ACR with lens corrections turned off.

On the rooftop you have both the parapet/wall showing at the edges and the scene below, that's where the problem crops up.

More resolution, A finished pano from my Siggy 8mm is only 18 megapixels in total for the full 360X180 degrees. The main reason is for when I'm doing half a room and some specific locations where I'm shooting down from a rooftop where the fisheye's image once cropped just doesn't have enough detail....

By default I'm actually getting far lower RMS, close to 2.2! I'm still getting major alignment issues with the upper cupboards near the light bulb as well as with the beam at the top.
