Sorry, but when you import a bracketed stack into photoshop you end up with a 32 bit file. I've always used either Tiff or PSD files for saving these raw images, and thought that since APG read them it might read them properly. The HDR functionality in photoshop is adaquate for my needs, and the ad...

All that said - would you all have processed into 8bit standard tiff files? Depends on what you need them for. If you need an equirectangular image for IBL: use .hdr or .exr both are 32bit/ch FP data. If you need them for usual photographic work use 8 bit/TIFF If you want to intensively retouch or ...

APG does a terrible job of displaying the 32 bit TIFF files... what setting changes this?

Thanks very much, I'll be grateful whenever it's done - I'm trying the pre-processing too so will have a few things to compare when they're all done!

Thanks Hans, I've just sent you a folder with everything via dropbox. Let me know if I've saved the .pano file with some wrong settings, I've never shared one before.

It's no more steps, but with a machine as slow as this one I like things that I can set going and leave for a few hours. Each HDR is easy enough to make, but needs me to be back at the computer fiddling with it very often! I'm grateful for the help though, this way I can render my picture at all! Ha...

Well the settings all correspond to the memory and folders that I have, and have set up. I only have 8GB, but I was hoping the software would have a more intelligent approach to using it... each layer won't have a massive number of overlaps, so I was hoping that rendering one layer at a time would ...

Why?

best, Klaus

I was standing under a waterfall, on slippery rocks, getting soaked wet. I took the photos very quickly and preferred to get too much overlap than too little.

Not Enough Memory for Antighost - layer at a time

Morning all, I've got a lot of overlap in one of my panoramas, and multiple exposures too. A normal render fails with not enough memory, so I thought to myself "why not export one layer at a time, that way there will be much much less overlap..." Is there still too much overlap, or does exporting on...

as the computed focal value is not what it should be with the default settings, you have to remove that links to avoid focal divergence. Are there any guides anywhere that would help me understand what you mean there Thomas? I'm actually quite interested in the algorithms that you use and things as...

Why could you not use hard links within stacks? When I'm using my larger lenses, and particularly in high winds, there tends to be small motions between brackets that cause minute but noticable mis-alignments between images. It won't happen every time, and if I'm going to have to use hard links bet...

Sorry Thomas,
What if I can't use hard links between bracket layers? Does control points in stacks break the above?

Hello Martin, We give a look at your images. We study the case with 3 brackets because of missing images, but that does not change anything. To have a nice result, we did the gigapan import with 3 images per bracket, using hard links for stacks. We also set the skip optimization to have just have i...

Ah, so what focal length do you plan to use? Probably either 50mm or 135mm depending on the amount of detail I'd like to capture. For some scenes I use a 200mm lens, but they wouldn't be 360 stitches, and probably wouldn't have as large a VFOV either. While APP/APG can accept RAW files and brackete...

Nikon D2 isn't full frame, and I wouldn't usually shoot at 18mm. This was a test 360 panoramas, and of shooting all the way up to vertical... I didn't want to complicate it by using a longer lens that would make it taxing for my computer, take longer to shoot and generally more of an issue at each s...

Are these panos destined for online display or for print? They're mostly going to be for online, but in a couple of instances I would consider printing them. In those though I'd probably look at some of the quirkier projections that you had, and in some ways the quality of the stitch seems to becom...

Well I do and I don't. This was a trial run before I head on holiday, and I was hoping to make sure that I was able to shoot and process similar but more interesting image sets.
Doing so with more images and more brackets in gigapan stitch would be a massive pain in the backside.

GigaPan Stitch works fine, and creates a good hemisphere as I've tried to show with the below rotations, and final exported projection.
