I have a two-photo panorama, exposed to -2, 0 and +2EV (hence 2x3=6 files). I tried to use autopano in conjunction with photomatix pro but the two solutions taken from Ferrell McCollough's book do not work:
(1) solution "merge > stitch"
-- I build two .hdr images from the three EV settings with photomatix -- but I cannot open these two .hdr images with autopano pro : when I click "Add images" and I select the two .hdr files, nothing happens.
(2) solution "stitch > merge"
-- I open the six images with autopano pro, I click "HDR color correction", I group them per EV and I render them (bicubic smarter + multiband) in order to obtain 3 layers (-2, 0 et 2) in three different .hdr files (I select "HDR radiance")
-- in photomatix I click "generate HDR image", I open the three .hdr files, I set manually the 3 EVs (0, 2 and 4), then photomatix crashes (an error occured while generating the HDR image).
(of course I have both software up to date)
Someone knows how to use autopano pro and photomatix pro ? reading Ferrell McCollough's book, I guessed that it is routine work...
