Typo in the manual apparently. Protune is what gives you manual white balance.

Cons: cant get info which gopro was used for the skiing demo video. this shows clear permanent stitching errors on the cables of the skilift. and skiing downhill you see the different auto WB values are visible in different toned snow. (Is the Gopro3 Black not advertised to allow manual WB settings...

360 video is going to be huge in 2013 I reckon.

A lot of different companies are announcing/releasing hardware. I'm looking forward to having fun with 6x GoPro Hero 3 Blacks :)

Actually, I have an even better set-up than that. Can't share it yet though. You'll have to wait until the end of the month.

Worked a treat. Thanks so much Andrew.

Any thoughts on this workflow for zenith/nadir fixing? Are there better approaches?

Kind regards,

There surely has to be some kind of mosaicing software that can do this?

Can Panotour recreate the equirectangular from cube faces?

Usual apologies if it's a dumb question that has already been answered somewhere... Perhaps this workflow is daft, but I brought an equirect into Panotour, then exported cube faces, touched them up a bit (very useful for zenith) then re-imported to create the website. Is there a way to create a new ...

Oh. Hold on.

It looks like the only option here is for them to run everything. Not interested in that.

Cheers.

Blimey. What a website. And you have to register in order to find out anything whatsoever about the software.

And then wait for someone to manually approve the registration?

Insanity.

This had better be good :)

Controlling the pano viewer with Kinect

Hi all - I'd like to demo a 360 full spherical pano to someone using a Kinect for input. I'm aware of the Open Exhibits option, but not whether it will work with spherical panos (I'm travelling at the moment and can't check it out as I only have a MBP with me). Does anyone know if this works yet, or...

Hi Georg - Thanks for the reply. Personally I wouldn't agree with you on customers caring about what tools get used. And it most definitely is not a quality seal, because it makes no statement whatsoever about the quality of what is produced. It's always seemed odd to me that after forking out a con...

Sorry for the potentially dumb question, but are there any terms for this licence?

Unlimited use across any site?

What would stop someone from purchasing this licence and then offering an un-branding service?

"Flat" panos - minimum zoom

Hiya -

Is there any way to allow a full zoom out of a flat pano so that you can see the full image?

Maybe I'm missing something simple, but it's a bit annoying that the minimum zoom seems to be that at which the panorama fills the width of the screen.

TIA,

Gerald.

Thanks Henrik - I guess the problem I have is that for the size of pano I'm considering, the cost of solid state storage is prohibitive. I understand from Alexandre that with 256GB of RAM, panos up to around the 20GP size will render completely in RAM, which will be nice. I was wondering - if I can'...

In panos such as this one though, despite the fact that the root cause of the problem is a "poor" stitch, and there are no ghosts as such, there are some instances where it would be much simpler to clean things up with a mask, than worry about manually setting control points. For example. Imagine a ...

Most stitching errors cleaned up. I know about the tall crane. What's weird is that the rendering preview showed it to be fine, but it's come out broken in the full render! Let me know if you spot any more - it's all good practice cleaning this one up for future endeavours :) http://08.ae/panos/Alpa...

APG 3.0 A3 - Masking. How to use the targets effectively

Hi - I seem to be having mixed success on using the masking, and I think it's because maybe I don't fully understand exactly how I should be using the targets. The video example shows just a single click being necessary for masking out the guy on the bike, but I've had a lot of difficulty trying to ...

Thanks Henrik - Lots for me to consider there. Much appreciate it. In terms of taking advantage of 64 cores and 256GB of RAM, I'm only really concerned about two programs. APG, and Gigapan's Time Machine creation software, with the emphasis very much on the former. I like the idea of starting off wi...
