hi,

i am looking into buying this software. I currently use Autodesk Stitcher which has a 'stencil' tool, used for removing unwanted parts of the images.

does autopano giga hav a similar feature?

No not as of now,
but it does the same ghost removal job quite efficiently with its anti ghost feature while rendering.

You might refer to this thread about using an alpha channel mask with a TIFF image. The user selectively masked the panoramic head from the nadir region of a 360 panorama using Photoshop. The following thread reports a bug number 804 and bug 794 related to using an alpha channel mask. The alpha channel bug has been resolved.

Yes. Alpha channel ( also called transparency ) in input image is supported and the tripod will be removed.

Don't forget you have 2 versions : pro and giga. If you don't need multiple viewpoint, the pro version is already enough for many type of panorama and of course, really cheaper. If you need to upgrade, at any time, you can with no surprise, it will cost the difference of price.
