Equirectangular panorama

Hi,
I'm trying to upload one eguirectangular panorama 360x180 to APG. This panorama was already stitched in different program as eguirectangular panorama 360x180. Is it possible to do it? It seems to me I can't open the panorama editor with one picture only. Is that correct? Does APG recognize eguirectangular panorama 360x180? Thank you, katerina

Correct - you cannot open one image in the Panorama editor - because if there's only one input image there's nothing to stitch.

You could try duplicating your image and inputting both copies.

Hi, thanks for reply. That's what I was able to do. It works but APG does not recognize that is is eguirectangular panorama 360x180 and I can do the changes I want. I'm pretty new with this program so maybe I'm missing something. Can someone confirm or navigate me how to do it. I need to load it in APG and apply Yaw 180 and Roll 90 and keep it eguirectangular panorama. Thank you, Katerina

I don't think APG can do what you are doing with PTGui in this case.

There must be lots of other APP/APG users who also use Lightroom who haven't reported the problem you have.

Might they be doing something different?

One answer to your problem I suspect would be to do your exposure fusion of bracketed images BEFORE stitching with APP/APG.

This seems to be the most popular approach and the most popular program to do this with seems to be Photomatix.
