Let me try again, and this time I'll try and keep my tetchiness out of it. I'm shooting 360 degree panoramas with a wide dynamic range, sunsets so I've got full sun at one end ranging through quite deep shadows where I'd like to keep shadow detail. The end result is a photograph (a rather sketchy ex...

It means that it's currently the best way for me to work. I'm not sure how that bears on the question either. It was a simple question and all I wanted was a simple confirmation, yes it works or no it doesn't. Instead I had one 'it does work' - it doesn't, one 'use another format' - without any indi...

It's the fastest and most convenient way to shoehorn it into my pipeline.

That much is obvious but I don't see how that solves the problem being discussed here.

OK, some thoughts. 1. it handles 16 bit images OK so obviously it can do some form of mapping. 2. The imported 32 bit images look nothing at all like I'd expect a 32 bit image to look, be it crushed, clamped or more carefully remapped. 3. Stitching fails miserably. So I'd say 32 bit tiff reads are b...

Possibly, but it deals better with 16 bit images. I'll run some tests and come back

To be honest I'm not that impressed with the way Autopano deals with HDR. It's a bit all over the place.

Thanks.

32 bit tiff read

I'm having trouble reading 32 bit floating point tiff files into Autopano Giga. The read but they're a flat grey with a slight ghost of the image showin. Should this be working?

(tiffs generated by Photomatix merge to 32 bit Lightroom plugin)

Klaus: I'm curious, why wouldn't it produce consistent results each time with the same set of input images? I don't see off the top of my head why there should be anything stochastic about such a process.

I'll work up some repro steps when I get a moment.

It's a test really, I need to do some work on the post, it's a bit overcooked for my taste. However ... I'm only stitching in APG. Maybe it's just me being unfamiliar with the process but I'm really not getting on with the HDR workflow in APG, there's something really not right about it and I'm not ...

glad I'm not the only one. I'm putting down to unfamiliarity, to a degree, but I'm usually pretty good at figuring stuff out and when a render looks vastly different to your preview or sliding sliders has no effect, you begin to wonder. I think it worked out OK in the end though: http://www.flickr.c...

Thanks but I'm having problems letting Autopano merge the exposures, Klaus. I can't get the same amount of highlight detail as I can with a PS merger and if I let APG deal with the HDR it becomes unpredictable.

Thanks for the help Martin, As it turns out the panoramas themselves don't quite match up either, there's a slightly different curve to the horizontals on each one so it's kind of academic anyway. In the end I hacked Photoshop Merge to HDR Pro script and built a batch tool to do the merging for me i...

Output render not the same as my preview

If I stitch a set, enable Fusion, make some adjustments then render the panorama, the rendered image is wildly different to the preview. The contrast and brightness go through the roof

Render sizes

I've a set of 57 images in 3 EV sets. I'm stitching each EV set into a panorama so I can merge the resulting 3 into a single HDR image. The requirement of the merge tool is that each panorama be identical in size. Despite the fact each set is identical, other than exposure (tripod shot) the final re...

Stitching multiple exposures, HDRI result

I'm stitching multiply exposed images into a panorama using Autopano Giga, outputting to EXR 32 bit and I'm having a great deal of trouble getting as much detail in highlights as I can by merging exposures to HDR using Photoshop CS6. This particular shot is a sunset and Autopano is clipping out the ...
