Re: timelapse again

Ah, Klauss, always having to be an ***.

Not bad, but the cheesy music caused me to shut it off.

For digital printing since 2001 or so I used Bowhaus' InkJet Control RIP. Now that they've ditched Epson for Canon, they have a new RIP called True Black And White. I have a 24" wide Canon 6300 running that. http://www.bowhaus.com/index.php4 There isn't any use sending DPIs that high, Epson resample...

Hi Destiny! Yes, I sharpened it. Just a quick initial pass. But it does look like it could use a bit more. I pay an extraordinary amount of attention to sharpening as I usually am sharpening for print. So, I sharpened up the .tif a bit. I tend to be on the conservative side, I would always prefer sl...

Finally got a chance to dig into color anchors. Very nice feature if not completely documented well. I'm getting used to that... :D

Improved this image from above considerably.

Thanks,

Hi Marzipano, Yes, I really like the Lightroom Enfuse plug-in. I've tried Photomatix in the past, maybe I'll take a look again. Ah, I think you may be right. Could be I messed something up. I've read through the wiki, but I'm sure I'm missing the understanding of some things. It's in Fran-glish, so ...

Fusion Workflow

I shot a four image pano, each RAW image bracketed -/0/+. Used JPGs in the interest of saving time. Then: Import RAW to Lightroom, Stack, Run LR/Enfuse plug-in, Export JPG to APG, Stitch, Render. Import RAW to Lightroom, Export JPG, Import to EnfuseGUI, Enfuse, Import to APG, Stitch, Render. Import ...

Thanks Jon, over here we say "When things don't work the way they should, get things done the way they can" sometimes we add "......said the farmer and he placed his wife in front of the plough"........ :) Let's hope a version of APG will have your suggestion built into it in the near future...

What APG should add is an option to change the order in which things are processed. Now first everything is detected and at rendering time the fusion is done. The new option should be to first fuse a stack and then start detection and then later rendering. Like an air conditioner/heater that works ...

It's a nobrainer, anyone who has not tried it, should not complain ;-) I've tried it. I was under the impression that was why the "Fusion" functionality was incorporated into APG. If it doesn't work, why write the code? Instead, spend time coding a plug-in for EnfuseGUI? I guess when I buy a new ca...

That's distressing to hear... I noticed the same thing. I upgraded from APP to APG for a number of reasons, but the exposure fusion feature was a main one. I also shot a test pano some time ago and ran into the same problems with ghosting between bracketed shots of leaves... I was wondering if blend...

RSS Rotator or Advanced Rotator RD16-II... or?

Hi, Very glad to be shooting stitched panoramas after a twelve year hiatus. Specifics: I shoot to print. I typically stick to three formats: 1:2, 2.40, and 3:1. All shot in portrait orientation. I am currently shooting single row panoramas. That may change in the future. Gear I use: Canon 5D MKII Ca...

Hi Lumelix, No, what it is (besides a bit of mental slipping!!) is that I have a successful gallery show coming down this Sunday (100+ attendees; sold 8 pieces!!), and another being hung on Monday (two pieces with committed buyers before the show is even installed!). Two construction projects at hom...

Hi Klaus! I understand the multi row process. I wasn't sure if you were reading all of my posts thoroughly. I've shot multi-row panoramas, object rotations, etc. Multi-pass panoscan shots also. I did the camera placement math and layout for an object rotation of a 40'/12m NYC Firetruck in the Americ...

Klaus,

Third sentence of my first post:

>These days, I only print panoramas in three formats.

Fifth paragraph, first post:

>I'm back shooting panos and now I have the same tools: I have three viewing masks for my favorite formats: 2:1, 2.4:1, 3:1.

:)

Hello Lumelix, I'm sorry I made you write all that. I actually have the table already for my RRS head. Do you see the numbers listed in my post above: 2.40:1 24mm lens, portrait, 5 frames, 17.5 deg. rot., starts at 325 deg. So, with the 5DMKII in portrait orientation, Canon 24mm T/S lens mounted, on...

I guess how I got thinking about this was the fact that all the online pano calculators work on FOV. But when I'm out looking at scenes, I don't think about FOV--I think about format . When I would get in the subway train in NYC with my Leica, I didn't think "Oh, I want to shoot a frame with a HFOV ...

Hi Klaus, Sorry, I just like math... :rolleyes: I know I can do it manually--I figured that out in 1999 with my first manual head! :) I'm interested in the field of view of each shot and percentage of overlap as an equation. So, for a 2.40:1 pano and a 24mm lens in portrait orientation (53.1 FOV), h...

Hey Klaus! Thank you, but I'm not really wanting to add anymore gear to the setup I have above. I'm going trekking in SE Asia and my kit is too heavy and too dependent on recharging batteries already! :) Yes, as I mentioned I have three viewing masks which work well. Any idea on doing the math? Jon
