Does anyone have any advice for proper HDR probe rendering?
I've tried pretty much everything. By default, the Antighost with level -2 create halos around the edges of the objects, and also alter completely the brightness of some pixels, making in it not correct for HDR. Antighost with level-8 doesn't have the same issues, but you can notice color differences between the images, even with them having the same white balance and exposure settings.
The Simple mode with Diamond is the one that seems to keep the correct colors all the way, it makes the image a bit blurry (I can live with that), but it also leaves some nasty ghosts (not between the HDR brackets, but between the different photos). I guess I need to upgrade to Giga to be able to give priority to an image with the masks?

Destiny wrote:You missed the point AGAIN klaus.. The POINT I was making was the fact that you do NOT set APG to Anti-Ghost when using bracketed shots and rendering to HDR.. You have to set it to Exposer Fusion or HDR.. That why, after the pano is rendered you have access to the HDR Editing where you can then edit the HDR settings then render again to HDR.....

I already had to calibrate my raw files in ACR to get proper white balance, save them to TIFFs, then merge them to EXRs, and then finally stitch them. That takes a lot of diskspace.
You instead also can use stacks in APG - without merging them. What i do is stitching the stacks - but NOT merging or fusioning them!!
I render a single layer from each stack. It´s most important to NOT fusioning or merging them or treating them otherwise . . with color-correction ir whatever.
Having finished the rendering as layers i export the single layers as TIFFs and process them to HDR in Photomatix - then save them as .exr/.hdr.
