Hey everyone!

Been a long time since I used Autopano. During this time I traveled and shot hundreds of panoramas, and now it's time to stitch!

I'd like to know what changed on the HDR front, and specifically, what is the recommended HDR workflow.
The possibilities are:
1- Bracketed TIFF > APG stitch > save layers separately to TIFF > HDR software > tone-map
2- Bracketed TIFF > APG stitch > save pano to HDR > HDR software > tone-map
3- Bracketed TIFF > APG stitch > APG exposure fusion
4- Bracketed TIFF > make HDR in HDR software > APG stitch > save HDR pano > HDR software > tone-map
5- Bracketed TIFF > make HDR in HDR software > APG stitch > APG exposure fusion
6- Bracketed TIFF > make HDR in HDR software > tone-map in HDR software > TIFF > APG stitch

Using APG 3.5 beta 2; try your option 3 and see if you like the results.
