Geometric Analysis distance limiter

When using geometric analysis on a 360x180 pano, I got a lot of "long" links that may or may not be correct (areas of ceiling or carpet in particular). I'd like to see some sort of (optional or user selectable) limit placed on geometric analysis. Assuming a full spherical pano taken on a pano head w...

']hankkarl, I don't have RealViz, so I cannot confirm, but I was thinking something like a hybrid solution. Dragging an image to position and then, using similar to CP Editor interface, set "a zone" or "a point" where you want the images to match. In your example ( Chicago1Selection1 ), imagine usi...

More of a tip--you don't have to have the pano window open to render, and closing it saves some memory

Cool :) BTW : we did some optimization the whole friday to get the full panorama with autopano pro : 609 pictures, 7.5 Gigapixels size, 16h07 rendering time in debug mode. So this project and the colaboration with Igor gives us an idea about a clever optimization in the rendering engine. It will so...

HDR color space display

Saw a color space chart like one of the ones that shows how adobe colorspace differs from RGB colorspace, but this one showed (I think) the RGB line and also had black dots to show which values a given picture had. This was used in an article showing tone mapping gone wrong (everything compressed in...

FDR Tools

Has anyone used FDR Tools for HDR and tone mapping? How does it compare to Photomatrix?

I agree with ssprengel. I had pulled in all pictures from a directory and later decided to delete a few. It took a long time to recompute, then delete, then recompute.... My workflow is to get the CPs right, then worry about the color. So long as I can recognize a picture, and the color isn't grossl...

Save stack

In another post, Alexandre mentioned that the save stack grew and sucked up memory, and that it may have to be limited. Would it be possible to erase all intermittent steps when a snapshot is taken? That way, you can recurse to significant points and have a longer history of what the user did withou...

This info that Alexandre wrote in another thread should be in the documentation or FAQ: if you have an edge that is just a little misplaced : open the links between related picture having this issue and create more point along this edge than everywhere else. It will force the solver to solve more th...

I think for future version, some tool can be added to handle such case : - Manual location of a single picture : drag'n'drop of a single picture to an approximate location inside the panorama view => for sky hole. A full blue picture without anything in it. Just drag it approximately where a hole i...

Automatic tripod head removal

When taking a spherical pano or when using a very wide angle lens, the tripod head gets in some of the pictures. Sometimes APP picks up control points on the head or tripod legs. Is it possible for APP to identify that there are two groups of images, or rather, two groups of control points? One that...

Really ? That's a nice hint : running noiseninja or another noise remover tools before detection. It shows APP doesn't use the same criteria for a match that I do :-) And its probably a good thing to include in the FAQ. But would NoiseNinja hide details if you had a sharp photo so that you get a le...

']For example, a top row of a pano, consisting of uniform clear blue skies - you can tell which photo goes where according to filename or time of shoot (sequence), but APP cannot place them properly. Or the example JohnM gives. Maybe some kind of "hard link" could be helpful. Instructing APP "this ...

Yes, that's a case where the image are so blurry and noise full that we cannot really do it without the need of manual control point placement. Or using ssprengel tips of adding a letter to the picture so that autopano will find a match ... Thanks Alexandre, I learn something new about APP every da...

At first, APP didn't find any CP between the "left half" and the "right half" Using the CP editor, APP fouind some points between image 7 and 11. Note that the points probably not correct because the picture is "bent"

']hankkarl, try selecting smaller area in the CP Editor. I've found out that using smaller selection gives better results when trying to detect points on "difficult" material. Tried that.

APP needs a way to force the insertion of a point into a pair of pictures. When testing a set of snapshots from my cellphone camera, I've found a pair of pictures that have a slight overlap. I can identify this area by eye, but APP cannot find any points, even using the link editor. The pictures wer...

How do you make APP run faster?

(sorry, this is kind of dumb, but many people will forget to do it)

Turn off the run-time part of the Antivirus (in Grisoft AVG, its called the Resident module), etc for the directories that APP uses-- the picture source and the temp directory.
