Hello, I´ve downloaded the GoPro Video-Samples of Freedom360 and tried stitching them with Autopano Video with "Stitch as GoPro". Then I edit the reference pano in Autopano Giga but the problem is, that I don´t have any control points. The 6 images are aligned quite good (not perfect of course) but without control points? I would like to optimize it, but isn´t possible without CP and the images aren´t linked together.
The trick is to start the video in a place where you have enough control point options. Unfortunately, the indoor sample from our website doesn't give many options for control points for the ceiling, because it was somewhat, hrm, "rushed". If you are facing a similar situation, it might help to place a couple of post-it notes and painters tape on the very empty areas of ceilings and walls, or put some stuff on the floor, start the video, remove the stuff, and continue with the shoot. or stop the video, remove the stuff, and start a new, clean take, using the previous "dirty" one as template. or buy yourself a laser pointer with pattern lens, and project a couple of seconds of random pattern onto the featureless areas. please be very careful to never point the laser into eyes, or the cameras. I'll work on new samples that have more opportunities for control points.
Hello Joergen, I´ve tried some different examples I´ve found from Freedom360 and Heros360 but none of them made control points. It´s quite annoying to set the CP manually You can see a screenshot of what AutoPano Giga gives me after pressing "Edit" in AV.

I just double-ckecked our outdoor video sample from our website... I took the 6 mp4 files, and dropped them into AVP. after a short and simply sync, it stitched right out of the box (RMS 3.2) and just needed some leveling and auto color correction. AVP and APG do a great job by default stitching the material from the Freedom360, even if the material is not perfect.
so strange - I took the same videos, the newest software (AV demo and APG) - audio-sync was good, then stitch as gopro and edit in APG and then I´m having a project without links between the 6 images. I´ve just reinstalled APG but without luck. I´m having no idea what the big problem may be??
