Now all the shots are where they should be. Any suggestions on how to proceed from here to finish it up? (photo below)
Can you show us a screenshot of the Control Points editor view showing the links.
Is it just a question of adding more control points? Or do I need to also look more closely at some of the red control points in the shots that were placed correctly next to each other, which might need deleting (So far I have only deleted entire groups of control points that were placing non adjacent shots next to each other)[/quote]
If you delete the links that will remove all related control points - in other words you don't need to find the CPs to delete.
I did notice after my hour of deleting, that 2 adjacent shots no longer had any control points. I added 3 just so they had more than zero - but how many control points is ideal? Is it a case of the more the better? Is there a minimum number?
Don't add individual CPs use the 'drag areas' method and let the program detect the CPs.
Try to have CPs only on major features like door and window frames and bathroom fixtures and fitting and as few as possible on that patterned wall covering.
Re: A fisheye lens. I did buy a week ago a Rokinon 8mm, but I had poor results from it. The tops and bottoms were a jumbled up when the pano was rendered.....But I'll go back now and take a look at the control points in those to see if that was my problem.
That lens is a fully manual lens and provides no data to the camera and EXIF so you may have to tell APG that it is a fisheye lens and check the crop circle in Image properties.
I guess you did that?
If you want to ZIP a sample image set from the 8mm fisheye and make it available to download I'll be happy to take a look and see why you may have had problems.
Perhaps you were not using the optimal shooting pattern again?
Likewise with that bathroom image set; that is probably one of the most challenging scenes you could possibly have chosen to shoot with a 14mm lens. It could be fun for me to see if I can stitch it.
