Advanced 360 Video Processing - Autopano Video

So this tutorial on advanced processing has this discussion on how to do foreground and background outputs but it's really not obvious how to bring the different pano reference files into autopano video.... or if it's still a feature.

Is it best to have 2 separate APV files for foreground and background edits or a step further... every crossing foreground parallax element.

As far as i can see it, they import both files into Adobe After Effects and then mask the helmet from the video which has the helmet stitching and put that on the video which has the background stitching.

I'm curious about the "reference pano" thing that happens when they edit 2 different panos and import them both into autopano video. That doesn't seem to be possible anymore.

So, it mainly looks like you just edit 2 projects or make a locked background and then work on a composite fix file.

Maybe it doesn't change things much.

So, stupid question. How do you make a second stitch that is just focused on a specific element? The helmet edit in the tutorial appears to be only made with one panorama edit and isn't done with the timeline. Does it require lots of manual automation on the stitch track?

We have an object that goes back and forth through multiple cameras with some pretty extreme parallax artifacts and I'm trying to figure out the best way to fix it.

The stitch timeline is exactly about that. It allows to change the template used for stitching along time.
So if you need one object to be good stitch, cut a little before, a little after and on that state, create a template that is solving for that object. The software will then interpolate from the previous template to the one just for that object and back to the old ( or next one ).

So, I was trying out making a regular kava file for the majority of the edit and making a secondary one that edits the specific problematic object.

This template concept only works for a state stitch? Our problem object is always in frame so I want to edit through the whole timeline and export both edits and layer them in after effects.

So far, my experience experimenting with that solution is that the new template section throws the background stitching waaaayyyy off. It does solve the foreground stitching though.

Maybe I missed something. I made the two cuts on the stitch timeline and selected the new section for realignment in APG.
I also tried re-rendering that section. I'm not sure what you mean by 'template'.

Hey,

If you want to do a second stitching focused on another subject (closer or further) you need to go into APG (edit in AVP) and use the control point editor (http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/vie ... nts_Editor) to delete the links on the non concerned objects and add some control points on the new focusing parts.

Cheers,

Martin
