I'm new to AutoPano Pro, so forgive me if this is a silly question. Most of my stitches have gone well. This one is strange. Quite good RMS value, but all wrong. How would I fix this?

Hi!

Set the centerpoint to the spot the camera pointed to. Usually it´s a point in the height of the camera´s horizontal looking position. After doing so use "automatic horizont", in harder cases the "vertical lines" tool. With that you can streighten every pano vertically.

best, Klaus

Use the Yaw/Pitch/Roll button and enter a Pitch value of 90 or -90, then click on the tick symbol.

If it ends up upside down use the 180 button.

Then use the Automatic horizon button to level it up.

If vertical lines are still not vertical use the Vrtical lines button button and draw vertical lines on the pano.

Here's the video tutorial:

Looks like the nadir is centered.

Imagine you took a laser pointer and laid it on the tripod pointing the same way the lens points. Those are the places you can put a centerpoint. Pick one that is directly above or below the center point of your pano. If you pick a point left or right of the centerpoint (where the sky meets the ground), you'll have to rotate the pano 90 degrees, but I sometimes use these points because they're easier to find.

Also, try turning on the CP editor before you do this. If you shot two or more rows, the links will make circles around the vertex and nadir. Try centering the pano with the centerpoint tool to a spot to the right and notice the pattern then. Then rotate 90 degrees, and see what the links look like.
