bug or just bad handling of UserInteface...
imporing a non 360x180 spherical pano to ptp 1.5b1 leads to following anormal complicated working process:
1. adding the non 360x180 pano
2. default spherical is used and in consequence ! giving hint that this does not fit together
3. changing to planar project does not solve this
3. so using spherical projection you have to change fov value + or - one degree - up to you which one you choose
4. after this the ! on fov properites disappears. the ! on left added pano is still there.
5. to get original values you now change the altered fov value back to original value. The ! on the added pano now alos disappears
6. now finally you can change to planar projection ...
cant this be solved in less steps?
You've lost me somewhere in this list of steps.
As I understand it:
1. If the partial (less than 360x180) pano to be added to APT/PTP was created using APP/APG, and has not been further processed before being used in APT/PTP, then the custom Kolor User Comment tag data in the EXIF (for formats supporting EXIF) will be used to set the Panorama properties/data field of view values automatically.
2. Adrien described what happens if the custom Kolor User Comment tag does not exist (for whatver reason) as follows: the yellow triangle alert is shown on the added pano image; the Panorama properties/Data field of view vertical value is set to 180 and the Horizontal value is calculated based on the aspect ratio of the pano image. So that if the pano image is equirectangular the horizontal value will be set to 360.
Does this match your experience?
its clear that if I load panos less than 360x180 to APT or now to PTP that this is shown on two places marked as "!" (on the loaded pano on bottom right corner) and on panorama properties at the input field of view. because default projection of APT and PTP is spherical and I loaded an planar image not covering 360x180.
the point is how to solve this at this point.
it should be solved by changing from spherical to planar projection.
but this does not solve it the "!" are still showing it...
to get rid of this you have to change manually the field or view value lets say 1 degree. But this still does not solve it the "!" is still there. Only if you than change the field of view value back to original value after loading the pano, than the "!" dissapeared.
solution: the "!" should dissapear if user is changing from default spherical to planar projection.
