Tell us about your pano. 1. are you using exposure bracketing? how may exposures per position (how deep is your stack)? 2. Did you take it on a tripod? with a pano-head? 3. MF or AF? Manual exposure or Auto Exposure (e.g. aperture priority)? 4. Are your CPs on moving objects: waves, clouds, wheat in...

Custom XML file

Saw the thread on turning hotspots on and off. This requires custom work in the mai XML file, but not too much work. I think that this file is generated by APT, and may be re-written every time you change the pano. But even if its not, I think it would be more elegant to have a custom file that the ...

Sorry Klaus, I hadn't seen the thread that was deleted. And there have been several controversial and heated threads in the past.none of those had been trolling.

Trolling is a fishing term meaning you put some bait out and let it drag through the water behind your boat, hoping a fish bites it. On line trolling is when someone puts out (flame)bait and hopes for a reaction. The rules here: http://www.af.mil/shared/media/document/AFD-091210-037.pdf are pretty g...

Hi Klaus, remember that rectilinear lenses distort the image by means of glass lenses in order to get straight lines in the real world straight on your images. I find lens distortion is very important with a Sigma 12-24 EX. Not as good a lens as what you have, but not an entry level model either. Fo...

Don't forget the weight on your panohead (and the shorter distance the 5DII/III gives compared to the 1D). A prime lens will always win over a zoom. Canon makes both 14mm rectilinear and 15mm fisheye. The fisheye may give you a better starting point because the rectilinear lens has built-in distorti...

Calculated hyperfocal distance is based on a certain print size. So it may not be best. I would calculate the hyperforcal distance based on the most important thing, the nearest thing, and a DOF caclulator. Sometimes I'll set focus on the most important thing if the nearest thing is still in focus. ...

RMS is an indication of quality of a stitch, but not an absolute valuation. For example, you could just have one CP per image pair and with that having RMS close to 0. Perfect in the sense of error reprojection ( RMS law ), but probably bad when you inspect visually the panorama. I know we need to ...

Are you going by the visual appearance or the RMS? Don't worry about the RMS, you can't compare PTGui and APG RMS, they are based on different points and possibly different numbers of points. But if you really want a good RMS, eliminate all points but the points under RMS 1.0 or eliminate all CPs ex...

[Beta 2.6 win 7 64 bit] stitching issues 2ith wide angle

I have found some issues with WA lenses where two pictures don't automatically stitch. I think its because one feature is in the center of one image and the edge of the other. Could be due to the fact that WA lenses distort the edges to get lines straight. Its worse in the corners. will upload files...

Destiny, what aperture do you shoot at? According to the hypoerfocal distance calculator, with a D300 and 10.5 mm lens, at f/11, you should set the focus distance to 1.64 feet, so everything from 0.82 feet to infinity is in focus. At f/16, the setting should be 1.17 feet so everything from 0.58 feet...

What you say here is quite important, and I hope it will be mentioned in the documentation. Why not letting the user make a choice between 'quick preview' (as now) , and 'complete but slow preview' (with anti-ghost applied,....) ?

Hankkarl I'm not clear what you meant by "HDR" in "as two separate HDRed images". If you really mean HDR, I have a problem with that, as I can't find a decent tonemapping program that works in Linux. I meant take the bracketed shots, and make one image that shows the interior exposed correctly. Thi...

Many white things are actually blue. Clothing that is washed with a detergent that claims to get your clothes "whiter than white" adds a bluing agent. This is because we tend to see a slight blue as being "whiter than white". White walls, doors and ceilings may actually be a bit warm (ie they have a...

I've always thought that we have to handle this case (bright daylight through the window) as two separate HDRed images: When I've tried it with PM, PM wants to keep the windows brighter than the interior (ie the area around the window.) 1. create an HDR for the interior, let the window get blown out...
