I have been using APG for a while to create standard <180 FOV stitched panoramics and am now turning my attention to learing APT that I purchased alongside APG when it upgraded to v2 those many months ago
I've looked through the documentation and the past posts but cannot see an answer to my question, possibly the first of many by the way!
So, question #1 - when I created the stitched panoramic in APG that is intended for a 360 (4 x FE, 1Z and 1N), for the render settings is there an optimum size for the resulting JPG to be output as so that APT will accept it?
No, assuming you have an unlimired domains license for krpano then use any size you like - within reason. APT cannot yet handle gigapixel images., but nothing you shoot with a FE is going to be a problem.
If you don't have an unlimited domains license for krpano then APT offers only restricted functionality.
I have read about it using only images of 2:1 ratio, hence the question as to what the best dimensions would be or does it not matter what the size is and just ingest the 100% full fat, full sized APG completed rendered image?
See above - but in fact it's not true that APT requires equirectangluar input images. It can handle partial panos. But it does need input images to have a spherical projection.
