Gentlemen,

Looks like you have a good product here. Here are two samples, one done by a competitor, the other with your demo version downloaded a few minutes ago. Both are from the same 4 images.

The competitor image has been post processed using LAB, sharpening and elimination of the ghosts on the ice (which I have not removed from your demo version). FYI, this stitch did have ghosting at the top of the mountain on the left side of the image until manual control points were entered, and the prominent mound on the right as well.

Your application rendered this image in less than a minute, and quite frankly, I'm impressed (although it needs some work).

To be fair, I read none of your instructions and stumbled through command sequences to create the image using your software in a few minutes, so information on how to really fine tune it will be welcome.

You might also wish to follow this thread http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1007&message=16245161 or this one http://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=57648

It looks like you have a potential winner here.

Regards,

Mark

Thanks for the comment. I read both thread and seems promising.
I also noticed a small ghost on the top the mountain and for people moving. You could also activate the color correction to equalize color and exposure.
Anyway, for 1.1 or 1.2 we'll propose a new algorithm for automatic ghost removal. The algorithm is already working in our labs but we still have to include it in the software. So stay tunned. Before that, we'll finish a first version 1.0 for release so that we can open the buy part of the website (for the 16 december). After that, version 1.1 for end january (Mac and Linux included), we'll add fisheye support. That's approximately our schedule.
