This is what the machine tells me it has inside:
Model Identifier: MacBookPro7,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
Total Number of Cores: 2
Memory: 4 GB
2.6.4 works well on the default settings even 30-40 frames. 3.0.5 simply doesn't work properly. Some panoramas come up in the editor as very distorted, often a tiny thin vertical crescent of an image bearing no relationship I can see to the intended picture. More often than not the stitch looks OK in the editor but the whole system grinds to a halt in either the detection or stitching modes. I can see some reports of 3.0.5 using lots of memory and being slow but on my system (which I'll admit isn't a hugely powerful machine) it in effect hangs the machine. I am seeing similar on an AMD machine (roughly similar power and memory) - 2.6.4 runs and 3.0.5 doesn't. I'm seeing the odd detections as well. I cannot find anything in the fora (apologies if it is there) but I'd really like to use 3.0.5 which currently is of no use to me at all. 2.4.6 is back on both my machines.
I am not a techie and I'd value any advice about how to proceed. Is it the large number of pixels in each frame?
Thanks in advance.

Curiously if you change the projection in "edit" to anything but the default you get a recognisable scene in two halves with the blank check pattern separating them. When I've got a bit of time I'll get screen shots and work out how to post them. And work out how to do screenshots in OS-X. I'll also look out some big D200 panos and see if smaller JPGs make a difference.

If it is true then 3.0.5 is a downgrade. 2.4.6 tells me the links are good and high quality. Are your files from a big sensor? I've still not had chance to experiment with old D200 10meg files as opposed to 36meg D800 files.
