@mediavets: It's a HP z210 Workstation with i7-2600 @ 3.40GHz, 16GB RAM, OCZ RevoDrive3x2, 2x Velociraptor - largest Picture I stitched with this Machine and APG 2.6 was about 88 Gigapixel
@klausesser: will have a look into that :)

ok:
1) set the projection to spherical.
2) use the vert. line-tool in the way that the yellow dotted lines follow your bent horizon and hit enter.
3) set the projection back to cylindrical.

Done.

Hi Klaus
The vertical-line-tool work well for non 360º-panos, but not very well for real 360º-cylinders.
It will be nice if APG give us an automated tool to maximize the usable pano size like in the example below.

The two images below shows first the wavy look in APG and then the image transformed in PS.

With sperical panos you can straighten the horizon and you don't lose areas of the 2:1 field (because you have a full sphere). But with cylindrical 360º-panos this wouldn't work.
The two images below shows first the wavy look in APG and then the image transformed in PS.

For this type of pano, I couldn't find a solution to avoid this wavy look.
I have done a transformation in PS, but you can forget this with bigger panos ;)
So, we are at the point discuss last week, we need a real horizontal-line-tool!

This tool should be able to straighten such a wavy pano to maximize the usable pano size.

Hi Martin!

As you can see in my screenshots i worked on a cylindrical and not on a spherical pano.
The point is to change the projection from cylindrical to spherical, straighten the horizon and change the projection back to cylindrical.

As you also can see: it works! :cool:

The source images are four shots from a GoPro - that means: one row of shots, no Nadir, no Zenith = "real" 360°-cylinder.

best, Klaus

P.S.: would be of great interest if someone from Kolor could find a minute to adress this point . . .

Hi Klaus
You are to fast ;) I was still hanging on the first page of the post ...
I try out your suggestion with the spherical mode. It's ok but the result isn't optimal.

I like to have an automated "maximize-pano-size-tool" ;)
But it's only for suboptimal shots, eg. handheld panos

Hi Andreas,

I missed that point.... There might an issue regarding the overlap computation. To check that, I would like to give a look at the .pano file. Could you send me this one please ?

Regards,
Thomas

Hi Klaus
I use the vertical-lines horizontal along the wavy image borders and the tool straighten the pano not bad.
But if I use to much lines, eg. for every image one, then the tool makes nonsens.

Hi Martin!

The use is to align the yellow dotted lines along your HORIZON - not along the borders of the image! ;):cool:
You most unlikely need to use more than 3 or 4 lines. Pull the vertical (blue) lines up or down on their upper or lower handles to make the yellow lines longer.
