Sorry - i cannot agree. All my tests with SeitzVR2, Rodeon and Panoneed (which i have in constant use) proved they are able to re-shoot a panorama
multiple times and provide perfectly overlaying equis - as long as you don´t change anything on the head in between of course.
Using the Panoneed (max. offset: 0,036°/10000steps) i often do a shooting just before, during and shortly after sunset from the same POV for composing them. Sometimes i shoot 5 spheres from the same point by just starting the head five times for overlaying the equis in Photoshop and editing them individually for composing them to one image.
Each time the head starts again from the *very same* position as before. Using the template from ONE of them (in PTGui) all three resp. 5 stitches provide pefectly lay-overs without needing to find and set CPs for the other shoots.
David uses a Seitz. This one is also very precise. The Rodeon definitely is - without any doubt.
I understood David wants to shoot a pano multiple times with different lighting each time in a room using one identical head/camera setup.

Our process is as follows:
Take a complete spherical panorama and have autopano giga stitch and build the photo.
Then another spherical panorama will be taken with strobe lights in a new position.
We want this image to render with the same settings as the previous panorama so the photos can be layered and masked in photoshop. - will your software do this? If so how?
Is this considered a use for the template and if so please explain the use of making and applying a template thoroughly as we tried to use the brief explanation above, but with no luck in applying the template.

Hope this will help.
How specifically do you "Using the template from ONE of them (in PTGui) all three resp. 5 stitches provide pefectly lay-overs without needing to find and set CPs for the other shoots." - I find the instructions for making and applying the template unclear.
Thank you for your time!
