I have a set of 8 pictures taken with PEN2 camera and Panasonic 8mm fisheye : 6 pictures horisontal 1 up 1 down In apg 2.0 everything is OK In apg 2.5 there is a large knifelike artifact in the rendered picture. It is not in the CP-editor. It is independent of rendering method. The phenomen is in all sets shot this way.
first pic : apg 2.0 second pic : apg 2.5 b2 third pic: CP editor apg 2.5 b2
I downloaded the pictures, found that the TIFF nadir had no EXIF and that the crop circle was misplaced on every image ...but stitched image did not include any black area neither before nor after I corrected the crop circle. I suspect this could be related with the Remove ghosts option, but ?
Here's my attempt using APG 2.5 beta 2 on WinXP/32. Which OS are you using?
Like GURL I see no black lenticular artificact in the Panorama Editor nor in the rendered pano.
What render settings are you using?

When a fisheye is used the crop circle always exists. In this case "crop" circles must go through the 4 corners of the rectangular images and should crop nothing. In my first attempt yesterday they were wrong but in a new attempt today they were OK: ! I always verify crop circles because on my computers and with my cameras they are sometimes wrong (new versions don't change that...)
The following screen capture show clearly that the black hole is related with image boundaries:
The shape of the artifact is always vertical on the left side and circular on the right side. I will check later, but I believe it is always in the middle of the rendered picture. As shown in the above CP-editor screenshot there is no gap in the shots.

funny things are going on here ;-) I downloaded the set of images. (APG 2.5b2 on Win732bit using)
First I see that the nadir tif image is not automatically recognized as fisheye. after manually changing that detection worked. fisheye crop circle was perfect nothing to adjust...
second I disabled the image (1) (see screenshot 2) and this is looking similar to initial leifs posting... so I suspected perhaps the image was dsabled before rendering and in final pano blacked.... but I did render it the first time after disabling the image (1) and the resulting pano did contain also image 1 and the pano is complete... (screenshot 1)
Liebe Gruesse, Georg
