360° Video edit in APG

Hi,

is it possible to edit later Sequences of the Video in APG? (not the first syncronized Frame of the Videos)
Because later I got some better Views for alignment of the Videos ...

Thank you
Andreas Schnederle-Wagner

Hi Andreas,
If you use the time line marker, and slide it to where you think is a more representative frame, and click on "stitch as gopro" you get what you want.

Hi Joergen,
thank you for your fast answer - will try it immediately! ;-)

would it also be possible to use the same reference panorama with pictures from anothr time position? As I already got a good reference Pano - but still would need to set a few CPs on other pictures ...?!

If you rename the images from the new frame set, to the images from your good, existing template, it would update them in APG (sorry, it's manual labor)

alright - at least there is a chance of doing so! ;-) Thank you!
Biggest Problem is when distances to the Cameras differ .... like when I go inside a House ... before there are large distances between cam and objects - afterwards there is only a small distance left - so the stitchting TPL won't work correct ... would need to set different stitching TPLs for different timeframes ... but I guess there is no such functionality! :-/

Andreas,
Not sure which rig you are using, but it helps to have the smallest possible lens-lens distance to at least minimize the parallax errors. I would also avoid situations where distances vary greatly (i.e. a tour through a house, going from a wide open space to a closed in space or similar). If you can't avoid it, edit your video, and cut it up into scenes that are meaningful: that way you can optimize each segment to minimize the parallax.

Right now we are using the H3PRO7 - guess this one should have the smallest lens-lens distance? Also tried to incline it 30° to have the 5 Main-Cameras aligned to the horizon.
No chance to stitch a good looking walkthrough of our Bureau! :-/

Andreas,
almost anything is stitchable, at least towards a result that is 'good enough' (since 'perfect' is not achievable), but I can't speak about the rig you are using. The design philosophy of our rig is using the smallest amount of cameras possible. I would say: keep trying, and modify your shooting style until it comes together.
