When I render a Panorama with Rendersize 100% it is about 200% big. See picture.
The panorama is 360° with 39 pictures (4.416 x 3.312 pixel, Horizontal format) per row and 18 columns with 36% overlapping.
Finalsize with 100% is 177.740 x 58.656 pixel. I think the panorama should be about 50.000 Pixel wide in 100%.

Also every Panorama has a differned size from 140.000 to 200.000 Pixel at 100%, but they are always made with the same Camera+lens and settings with a Gigapan head . Only on different places.

Picture show panorama against Input Image.

Canon G10 at 30,5mm this is about 140mm for 35mm Film

I think the focal lengths specified on compact digital cameras such as the Canon G10 are already the 35mm film equivalent?

................

Anyway using your figure for focal length of 140mm for focal length here is Papywizard's (Papywizard is the software used to control the Merlin robotic panohead) estimate of stitched pano size with Canon G10 with a 39x18 matrix/mosaic of images in horizontal orientation with 36% overlaps.

What projection type are you using when rendering?

Spherical, cylindrical, planar?

Spherical, You are right with about 100.000 Pixel. I have wrong counted. But this is about 175 % smaller, against what I get out. So the file size about 3 Time bigger, without a quality improvement.

file size ( in MB ) needs to be calculated with a square.
if new width = 2 old width ( means that new height = 2 old height ), then the file size = 4 x old file size.

Understand I properly. The single pictures do not become only consumes and positioned but also added more sharpens by putting the information together. This also happens with the "against Ghost Blending " setting.
In the middle of pictures where no other picture overlapped, becomes not more sharp. Where pictures overlap it becomes more sharp, presumed they well lie on top of each other. This is the reason of different sizes of panoramas at 100%, although always with the same settings taken.

Do you know where I can find more Information about this?

I thought he was talking about resolution not file size?

On idea of explanation :

The maximum size of a panorama is calculated by using the longest focal length image. For this image, we'll say at 1:1 ratio ( one pixel in input gives one pixel in output ).
So, if you are mixing several focal length, this can explains some issue ( Also because the rendering engine is not able to give priority on the pixels coming for long focal length compared to the one from short focal length. So anti-ghost may decide to remove totally pixels for the long focal if this image is totally in-crusted but still the size calculation of the panorama could be based on it ).

Thank you, now I understand.
Because I have differnt focal length. 140mm everywhere on the ground. And differnt focal length in the sky up to 210mm. What can I do against the big chance of focal length in the sky? I use Gigapan import. And some optimizing steps. Is there a way only to optimizing the ground. And left the sky untouched? Without to click on 500 pictures in the editor manuell.
