Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Just noticed I missed a page of more comments and Klaus already mentioned that. Late to the party! ;-)

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

For really tricky deghosting you might have to use manual selections with Lightroom and Photomatix.

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I have used macros in Photoshop for thousands of images for many of my stacked star trails, etc. It never skips an image. This one in particular was 86,400 images that required recording a macro and batching it out. http://galleries.aaronpriestphoto.com/photos/i-jGXvQQ9/0/XL/i-jGXvQQ9-XL.jpg Regardi...

I really like APG's color correction, it's very good.

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Well, I'm not going to get into a debate, LOL! I'm simply stating that for MY work, the sky is very much a major part of the image, being mostly nature / scenic, and everything but Photoshop's blending fails miserably at it. I've used every version of APG from 1.x to 4.2 RC3. PTGui is not much bette...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Yup, that worked! That's a prime example of the banding and uneven sky I'm referring to. The rest of the pano is great though!

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Hehe, lots of comments to reply to. I'll attempt it with a single long comment. ;-) At 24mm, shooting on a manual head, I use 3 rows of 12 photos, turning every 30° horizontally, and +55°, 0°, -55° for vertical. This has a lot of horizontal overlap at 43% for deghosting / moving objects, and 25% ver...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Lightroom REALLY needs a batch feature for HDR. I just spent an hour or two today with several HDR programs and Lightroom's deghosting was miles ahead of all the rest. I was very impressed. Sadly, I'm frustrated at how inconsistent it has become at applying equal edits to all images for timelapse an...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I blend with Photoshop more than anything else these days. Nothing else comes close in quality, though it does take a lot of resources and time. I just posted this pano last night, click the image to zoom in and pan around, shooting and stitching details under the photo... http://galleries.aaronprie...

+/-45° is about a 13% vertical overlap at 14mm in portrait orientation.

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

+/-39° gives a 25% vertical overlap. You can use +/-40° too of course, then it is 23-24%. +/-45° is only 13% though. For most of what I shoot, lots of critical things happen on the horizon. Having more overlap in that area gives me more cloning options.

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

As I said many comments ago, I go +/-39° x 6 when shooting on my manual panning head. Stitches well. You could try that too on the robotic head if you want.

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I go back and forth on lens correction and vignetting with Lightroom. For AutoPano Giga I usually use it. For PTGui Pro I don't always (since it has a good vignetting analyzer). For either program, you have to make sure it doesn't tag it as a fisheye, because it often will assume that for focal leng...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

The fact that the 14-24mm is more like a huge fisheye rather than a normal lens might be part of the issue.. The front lens element might be bulbous, but Nikon's 14-24mm f/2.8 is one of the most rectilinear wide angle lenses there is. As is Canon's new 11-24mm f/4. Both have very little distortion....

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Are you certain there are no alignment issues between the exposure layers? If you bring that bracketed set into Photomatix without alignment, does it blend right?

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I'm not sure on that. I'm under the gun on some really big projects for the next two weeks, and the camera gear is all packed up, so it will be a while before I can play with stuff like that. Sorry! ;-)

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I think I found it was 10.5mm difference between 14mm and 24mm, but I don't recall for certain offhand. I measure through the lens with a laser and trace it out on paper, then translate that to my nodal slide and go from there. In the end, it's whatever produces the best stitching pattern (without c...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Every camera is going to have a different measurement though, my D700 and D810 for example have different sizes from the tripod socket. Better to measure from the lens flange which doesn't change or the CCD itself, which is more difficult. I think it's easier to just pan left and right looking at tw...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I don't know, I've never measured it that way. All that matters to me is spinning on the correct spot in the field, for the slides, plates, etc. that I'm using. So the numbers don't help others that don't have the exact same equipment. Translating the numbers to some sort of universal database has a...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

For interiors, I still use HDR. Less complicated and faster shooting than lighting a full room for a virtual tour. I don't do many of them anymore, I'm mostly nature and scenic work outside now. Here's an old one from a couple years ago, shot at 14mm on the Panoneed: http://www.aaronpriestphoto.com/...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Can you please ask Aaron what his setting are. What shooting pattern is he using.. Does he use the 14mm focal. I use 14mm a lot for my night sky spherical panos. When shooting on a manual panning head I use 2 rows of 6 photos, rotating every 60°horizontally and +/-39° vertically. The Panoneed has i...
