Need assistance with a pano

by bigalpha » Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:52 am

Hi! :D

I have a series of pictures that I'm trying to stick together in a pano but am having some trouble with ghosting. I tried using a combination of different settings but couldn't get the pano to come out just right.

I have done a number of panos before, with great success, but cannot get this one just right. I uploaded a few pictures in my dropbox account if anyone would like to try. My original goal was to stitch together a number of them to get a lot of detail but no dice yet.

TIA!

Bigalpha,

I took a look and the skyline in frames 2, 3 and 4 looks like it has been edited. Are these images as taken.

What mode were these images shot in?

Where you moving while taking the images?

Regards,

Niall

Hi bigalpha
Could it be that these clouds are the problem?
When the move across the sky they change the position.
But with this high contrast, APG take them for control points.
In this case, delete all CPs on the clouds in the CP-editor.
Regards
Martin

Yes, the clouds are partially the problem. I will try deleting all the CPs in the clouds. However, I also get some ghosting in the landscape portion too.

There was no movement during picture taking AFAIK. Stood in one place and just pivoted to get all the pics. May try it again to be doubly sure there was no change of viewpoint.
The images have not been edited either. The pictures were taken in 'Auto' mode on the camera.

"Stood in one place and just pivoted to get all the pics"

Did that with my very first pano and got an area which would just not stitch.

The problem is that the camera posotion moves between shots, you rally need to totate yourself about the camera, not the camera about you.

A monopod helps because it keeps the camera in one position.
A sophistical rhetorician, inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity, and gifted with an egotistical imagination that can at all times command an interminable and inconsistent series of arguments to malign an opponent and to glorify himself.

Ah. I was stitching the pictures together for my wife. I think we'll go back out and retry it making the camera the pivot point, and not her feet. We don't own a monopod, but we should be able to use our tripod.

Thanks for the assistance.

looks fine to me.
What/where's the problem exactly?

Here's pano file, just redirect it to your own local folder

There are two major areas that have really bad ghosting. One is more to the left side, and one is more to the right side.

We are going to go back and re-take the pictures.

oh you're welcome.
'to the left and to the right'- not really particularily helpful, for trying to diagnose the problem
I suspect it may be something to do with your render settings

After fooling around with it, I thought the same thing, so I created another panorama with pictures that I had taken and it came out almost perfect. So, I'm certain that the problem is the method in which the pictures were taken.
