APG 3.5 beta 3 - Papywizard and VRDrive2 Import wizards ...

APG 3.5 beta 3 introduces improvements to the Papywizard and VRDrive 2 Import wizards.

But....

Both the VRDrive2 and Papywizard Import wizards allow the user to specify various options for handling Stacks.

However I don't see where/how one can set the Reference level.

A related issue is that there appears to be no way to set stacks manually for those cases where there may be no EXIF data or where for some other reason bracketing was not/defined set in the XML file.

No, that feature seems to be missing.. I made a point of reference on this in another post.. Where the Roundshot wizard provide a different index reference to that of Papy Wizard.. You can see that in the loaded images groups. Perhaps it does it automatically..

Workaround: in Import wizzard disable Option "Detection Option"-> Auto Detection.
than Import the Images... than you manually can select all stacks -> right mouse klick -> Use the "Create Stack by N..." to refine your referecne Image...
... than manually start detection...

Does detection still use the XML positioning data when you do this?

Yes it does, this is the right way for changing the reference level.

It may be one way to change the reference level but it sems very clumsy to me.

Why can we not have a way to do it from within the Import wizard?

Yes I completely agree that it would be logical since there exists this "Stack" tab in Papywizard import but not all the possible settings can be duplicated in each import plugin.
Actually I think the option "Auto Detection" should be unchecked by default and the import plugins should contain only specific settings.
All non-specific settings can be set the way explained by gkaefer.

I don´t know how other manufacturers handle this item - i asked Josef to implement both options for choosing:

1) record in the xml ONE shot per position - as usual.
2) record in the xml xxx shots per position.

This way it´s guaranteed that even 7 or 9 brackted shots in a stack get placed precisely at the very same position.

Several Panoneed-users here in the forum appreciate this option. Do they, folks!? :cool:

panoneeds handcontroller does record BOTH Versions of XML files at once so you later can decide which one to use (stacking externaly or using apg for that....). never ever I wanna miss this Feature =D
