Paul,

All the parameters are used in the calculation. Then input values and the calculated values are displayed in the tooltip.

Indeed I have another script to do the 360X180 which initially I thought may not be useful for others. Let me post it here that one as well.

[Papywizard] Multi format preset generator

Here is a preset generator for the PW that generates presets for a target format. Some of you may have used other formats like 6X6, 6X17, 4X5 medium, larger or ultra large format. If you want to do those different format with the digital, then you are at the right place. This script is for you. 1. W...

Jean-Pierre,

Thanks for putting it on your site.

Frederic,
You may want to hold putting it in the papywizard site. I have two more scripts like that I want to share with the others. I'll put them here in the thread and once it is finalized then you can put it on your site.

You can put the script tag anywhere within the html before the end tag of html. Most mordern browsers will recognize the external script and load it.

It is possible to separate the javascript and html into two different files. Then the external js can be linked as One more thing. The Generate should be of type button instead of submit. If it is of submit, then it will look for the server side code. Also regarding the xml output itself, it needs a...

Georg, The preset assumes the starting of the pano whether it is a partial pano (mosaic) or a 360 degree that top-left is set to 0 yaw and 0 pitch. By this, when you do the 360 pano (like the one you generated the preset), then the head needs to be physically in the zenith position - that is camera ...

bigwade, If you mean the resultant FOV of the pano, then it is in the tooltip comment line. The "Target:" section shows this as <tooltip> Source: Format: 35mm (1.6 Crop, 3:2 Aspect Ratio, Portrait orientation) Focal Length: 100mm lens, overlap: 25%, Horizontal FOV: 6.4, Vertical FOV: 10.7 Rows: 3, C...

Frederic, Yes. I tried it from 7 degrees to 13 degrees when I did my initial analysis. In my head with wired setup, it always moves faster at 10 degrees. That is why I chose the 10 degrees. If you want to do more experiments, you can change the value in the javascript variable OPTIMUM_DEGREES to des...

[Papywizard] High resolution preset generator

Here is a preset generator for the PW. It is mentioned here http://www.autopano.net/forum/p44380-2009-05-04-00-11-14#p44380 . If you read that thread you find that moving the Merlin head around 10 degrees interval on both yaw axis and pitch axis is faster. You will benefit from this when you are doi...

Hello Matze, 1. The current EOS plugin works only in Windows. The reason is that it is using a keyboard macro program called AutoHotKey which is available only in Windows. I never used a Mac before and I am not sure you can run the Windows program there (or using wine etc). The thread here http://ww...

I figured out when you mentioned aobut the 5DII as your camera of choice in the initial post that you are not only after the quantity but also quality. I put the numbers there so that even an entry level camera can be used to do such a huge gigapixels if used properly. It is unbelievable to think ab...

Julian, I suggest you try the Merlin/Papywizard combination to automate as much as possible. When you consider using the Merlin/PW, you have to consider the whole system not just the mount but camera, lens etc to reach your target goal. I am going to put some numbers below.

You want to verify the "Shoot Pictures" check box is checked. Otherwise it will simply change the shutter speed and come back. After opening the EOS Utility, leave it as it is. Also when Papywizard calls the EOSBracket to do the bracketing you don't want to move the mouse or touch the keyboard to do...

I think the python wrapper may not be possible directly from the SDK. I have not downloaded it so it is my guess. From PW point of view, it is better to write an abstraction layer in between PW and the SDK something like PW | Abstract DLL (generic functions for exposure/focus/white balance etc brack...

Hi Chris, Yes. Once I reach the shutter time value more than 30 sec, I will end up in the bulb mode. In EOS Utility you have to press space bar to open the shutter in the bulb mode, wait for the exposure time and press the space bar again to close the shutter. The current keyboard macro works only w...

Chris, I think what you are seeing is the boundary condition problem. I use Rebel XSI as well. The shutter speed range is 30 secs to 1/4000 secs. It sounds like when you change to 1 2/3 steps, it goes beyond 30 secs that is ending up in the BULB mode. The current keyboard macro works only when your ...

Hi Chris, As Frederic mentioned, there is no need to have shoot.py. The plugin replaces that. I did a small test 2 images mosaic with each image exposed 3 times with 1 stop apart. It worked fine when the "Shoot" box is checked and unchecked. I am guessing that you have a connection to your EOS camer...

If it is possible to load the entire generated XML to memory that is fine as well. The .bat and .sh I mentioned above were to rename the individual pictures lik...
