Using 16bit format allows fine tuning by using an image post-processor but Autopano Fusion adjustements (Exposure target, Dark enhancement, Light enhancement) and Levels tool (black point, white point, Gamma) should do the job in most cases.

Tone mapping - the hard part, actually - is to be done using an other application like PS or Photomatix. The content of the resulting *.hdr or *.exr file is not printable nor could be displayed on an ordinary computer screen.

You can choose which of the bracketed exposures in a stack is used to detect CPs and then force all the other bracketed images in the stack to use the same positioning.
