I'm using a gigapan to capture large images. When I do, I often end up with large featureless sections of the sky. The documentation for APG seems to indicate that it should be able to form artificial links between featureless images based on the overlap percentage. For example, in the wiki on the gigapan import wizard, they include this screen shot:http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/images- ... _links.jpg
where the whole sky is just linked based on the overlap (I assume since there is exactly 1 link between each image). This is *exactly* what I want to do. However, when I use the gigapan import wizard (APG is version 3.08), I get:

Clearly, I could just go manually arrange all the sky images into columns, but given that the picture is bracketed and I have a number of these to stitch, that'd be rather time consuming.
I believe I've tried toggling all the obvious settings - I've set it to force a 360 pano in the wizard, I've tweaked the overlap % in the wizard, and I even went through and cropped the images from 3:2 to 4:3 so that the overlap % was the same horizontal and vertical, all to no avail. Any thoughts? I'm contemplating writing a .xml file and importing the pano as a "VR Drive 2" or something, but that sound like a world of hurt. It wouldn't bug me so much if it didn't look like the APG gigapan import was designed to do exactly this thing. Thanks for any help,
