Klaus... You keep mentioning "Aline" images as a cause.. Yet I have stated many times I do not do this..
I thought about that as a POSSIBLE reason. I didnÂ´t realize you NEVER used it.
Somebody nevertheless mentioned to use it with handheld-shots. DonÂ´t remember who it was - thought it was you, sorry.
Thinking about and analyzing possible reasons is the only thing which can take things further.
I have shown a screen shot with this turn OFF in Photomatix, yet you suggest that this would be a cause if I used it.. Well, I don't use it and I have never used it..
That wasnÂ´t definitely clear so far.
PTGui will not accept the images..
What do you mean?? Do you mean that PTGui didnÂ´t take your images? Which particular images?
How I am getting a focal length difference with the Prime Fisheye Lens cannot be right either.. It is something else.. I have tried to use AlexJ work round, but it did not work for me..
Well - that tells us: what?
"ItÂ´s something else" . . . right, must be. But what? I doubt itÂ´s something in the app - other users would have the same issues. Do they?
To my knowledge they usually do not.
IÂ´m quite sure it would be a big deal in the Photomatix-community - is it? Not to my knowledge.
Even though, I had a RMS of 3.86 with Quick Optimise and a 3.66 with Full Optimise stating its was Very Good, however the final stitch was NOT Very Good...
No surprise: 3.66 is far from being "very good". "Very good" is around RMS 1 or 1.5 - at least with higher resolution than an average fisheye pano.
Having RMS 1 or 1.2 i canÂ´t find errors at all - having RMS2 i find errors on the spot.
So thatÂ´s a bit hard to estimate what RMS is "very good" and what not. ItÂ´s less critical using fisheyes - here you simply donÂ´t realize erros
as fast as with a 35mm @100% for example.
But using a D800 with a 16mm FE viewed @100% RMS2 it might also show errors viewed @100%. DidnÂ´t try it so far.
I strongly suggest to ckeck over again very carefully whether the crop-mode of the D800 combined with the 10,5mm FE might cause the bigest issue - which takes influence on Photomatix also.
I suggest to send the *RAW* files to Kolor as well as to Photomatix for examination. Shot in DX mode and in FX mode using different lenses.
Having RMS2 with 35mm you definitely have errors in the stitch which you need to correct in Photoshop.
ThatÂ´s why iÂ´m after as much precision as possible . . . it takes hours and hours in a 700mpx or 4GPx pano chasing stitch-erors with indoor-shots.
I have also eliminated RAM as the cause, since I did a test on Hans APG 3 PC, and it was the same...
RAM decides whether you can do it or not depending on the number of shots/resolution. IF it runs after all it needs to be good.
Conclusion: i have not the remotest idea what might cause the issue - YOUR issue. I know for sure that neither i nor other photographers i know have this issue.
Pity i couldnÂ´t examine your shots.
