Re: World's first stitched panorama of vortex star trails!

That one with trail effect its same as the other without effect, you forgot to put the effect on the reflex in the water, just aply same effect or copy the sky to fix this issue then will almost be perfect! It wasn't an oversite. I only shot the upper hemisphere to capture the star trails. I couldn...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

I should add... Lightroom has a nice HDR type feature with 16-bit DNGs. It's not the same dynamic range as using Photomatix, SNS-HDR, etc. but it does have a very clean, natural look to them. I REALLY wish it had batching however. [PLEASE listen to us Adobe! Timelapse and panoramic photographers NEE...

Re: BUG!... ?? [SOLVED]

Hey folks! It’s been a while since I’ve logged in here or posted. Been a real busy summer! I skimmed the 7 pages of this thread, and it’s drifted quite a bit over a variety of topics. I thought I’d share a few thoughts to confuse things even further… LOL! I shoot with a Nikon D810, several lens, Pro...

Re: World's first stitched panorama of vortex star trails!

I think the APP/APG Gigapan Import wizard assumes that images are in landscape orientation because that's the only orientation supported by Gigapan robotic heads. Interesting. I used to shoot in portrait orientation when I had a Gigapan as I had the Really Right Stuff plate for it and used a lens c...

Re: World's first stitched panorama of vortex star trails!

Where can I read about the grid method? I was referring to the "align to grid" feature of PTGui Pro. You can also do something similar with AutoPano Giga's Gigapan import wizard. Either method will let you pre-arrange the photos to a pattern if you shot them accurately every x degrees and...

Re: World's first stitched panorama of vortex star trails!

Yeah, that's not much to go on without knowing more about your equipment and subject. It depends greatly on the camera and ISO sensitivity of your sensor, the aperture of the lens, the depth of field you need, the ambient light. Stitching a night photo is not much different from a day time one if yo...

World's first stitched panorama of vortex star trails!

To my knowledge, this is the world’s first stitched spherical panorama of star trails in a vortex!!! It has taken several months and many attempts to come up with a method of shooting and stitching it, and I’ve discovered a few things that I can improve on my next attempt. I won’t give away all my s...

The first one i mean is a bit too bright in the mid-tones. Looks a bit un-weighted (don´t know whethetr that´s the right word). A tiny bit darker Gamma will do fine i think. Yeah, you are probably right. It's in the can now though so to speak. I spent so much time on the second panorama that I ne...

Amazing scenary Aaron and superbly blended together. Both tours look great on this 24" panel! Second one also gets my vote The nav bar and buttons, I'm assuming those are custom and not "out of the box" from PTP2.0?

The second one of sunrise is my favorite too. I spent a lot of time and effort on that one trying to get the colors and white balance very natural. The first one I had fun with HDR. Neither of them are sharpened on export from Lightroom. The quality is medium on export from PTP 2.0. The slight flick...

My first PTP 2.0 tour: Mt. Katahdin reflecting in Sunday Pond, Maine

This is my first virtual tour with Panotour Pro 2.0. The second panorama of the sunrise is my largest spherical panorama to date, 1.5 gigapixels, and my first spherical panorama stitched with AutoPano Giga. I put more information such as camera settings, brackets, number of photos, editing workflow,...

The example I posted above was only a 2 second clip at 24fps, or 4 seconds at 12fps. It didn't look very good when I looped it. But I'll give it another whirl soon! I've been working on a different project for the past several weeks that is still uploading at the moment.

Photoshop supports up to 300,000 by 300,000 pixel images in a PSB format. I'm guessing your project has more than 30 tiles though? I know people have built tools to assemble large PSB files into a larger file for 45+ gigapixel images, probably some sort of .KRO or .RAW file. Not sure if any of them ...

I really wish BigTiff would get Adobe's full support. We desperately need it!

APG would probably do this to .PSB format, have you got a way to convert that to BigTiff?

If you pre-process the bracketed exposures before stitching as Klaus suggests then the tool should work to reduce co-ordinate records to one per shooting position in your XML - although I don't know if it works with XML files created by the Panoneed head: http://www.anderson-mark.com/paxw/ Could yo...
