Hi,

Today, we released a new version of Autopano Pro / Giga.
It's mainly fixed but not only ( new light grey theme is available ).

You can download it through our website : http://www.kolor.com

Changelog :

Code:
Main changes

NEW: A new theme for the interface has been developed. It's now light grey based for more visual confort
compared to black grey theme. It's availabled in the general setting tab, You don't need to restart the software
to use it. It's real time theme switching system.
NEW: Italian translation was integrated.
FIX: On the layer editor, a fix to prevent to scroll down again has been added. It's more easy to use
now, when enabling / disabling an image or layer.

Fixes :
- 0000674: [Unclassified] mauvais lien dans le message d'update - resolved.
- 0000668: [Import plugins] haze blocking the application - resolved.
- 0000676: [UI behavior] Integration Italien - resolved.
- 0000338: [Editor] A second Skin less dark - resolved.
- 0000482: [Editor] Layer edition refresh => you need to scroll down again - resolved.
- 0000656: [Image I/O] Haze and profil - resolved.
- 0000615: [Cortex ( rendu )] number postfix issue in the rendering name - resolved.
- 0000658: [Editor] Crash when opening editor in GPU mode - resolved.
- 0000652: [Cortex ( rendu )] Datetime exif injected into rendered panorama should be based on first image - resolved.
- 0000657: [Editor] Manual control point not saved in history - closed.

We are now concentrated on integrating all different studies made into 2.6 version.
The big feature will be external software integration ( Adobe Lightroom, Apple Aperture, Google Picassa and Adobe Bridge ).
We are also proposing a new lens distortion improvement to be able to stitch better short focal length rectilinear lenses.

Have a good week-end,

Alexandre

Prior to developping a new version (2.6), you should really spend time in developping a comprehensive documentation for 2.5. As already mentioned in other posts, the central part of 2.5 documentation is the description of the different workflows. Unfortunately, this description is far from being complete.

Furthermore, multiple viewpoint should be documented (I know from the forum that it works together with homography; should be in the doc).


The fact that LDR does not use the exposure values of the EXIF should also be mentioned.


And lot of other things.... I guess.

Documentation is important for the users !!!!

The documentation is complete, but for the moment it's only a reference documentation. You have also access to the complete PDF.
http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/Technical_Support

Now, what many people really want is task oriented documentation : I have to do "something", how will I use the software.
We are under writing of such task oriented documentation too. The first example of such documentation was :
- HDR, how it works : http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Autopano_Giga_2.5_-_LDR_/_HDR_:_How_it_works
- Using Stacks : http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Autopano_Giga_2.5_-_Bracket_:_Using_Stacks
There's 5 new tutorials on the way ( French done, English quite finished too ).
And during summer, we'll have a video trainer whose job is dedicated to do a lot of video tutorials.

So, yes, we know, it's still our weakness, but it won't stay that way for really long.
You can already see the reference documentation, which is up to date and complete.

If you need test shots from a Sigma 12-24 on an EOS 5D, please let me know what to shoot (FL, focus distance, aperture, etc)

OK, I think that has 12mm and 24mm images, does the focus point and aperture matter?

Yes, the focus point in fact matter to get a perfect stitch. That's something I'll show in a tutorial.
