I am really curious- if each camera does 4K for it's 180 degree side of the world, shouldn't your final output reach 7-8k? Has anyone done this? The examples I see on Youtube are 4K and the sharpness does not impress me.

Same here, would appreciate a template for the 4K version of Kodak very much. Have tried the regular SP360 template but did not work.

Hi guys,

I made the effort to create a template/preset for the Kodak PixPro SP360 4K to use with AutoPano Video.
Preset was created in Autopano Pro with two reference photos and successfully used by me on a video (different scenery) taken with good results. Hope this helps you.

Code: Select all
<camera name="Kodak SP360 4K (JamesSon)">
    <parameters>
        <lens type="fisheye"/>
        <focal value="7.916" optimize="yes" scope="image"/>
        <disto optimize="no" scope="pano" level="3">
            <k1 value="0.591"/>
            <k2 value="-0.313"/>
            <k3 value="-0.017"/>
        </disto>
        <offset optimize="yes" scope="image"/>
    </parameters>
</camera>

You are right, theoretically you could render a higher outpout of 5000somethingx3000something pixels by joining the two single 4K outputs (which are 2880 times 2880 squared fisheye). However, according to 4K specs the maximum would be 3840x1920 and to be honest that's pretty much the highest you could use on any supported channels (YouTube, Facebook, 4k screen) at this point of time imo.

I assume the medicore sharpness on YouTube as of now is a result of the rather low quality Kodak stitch software and YouTube itself. Even the official Dubai "8K" timelapse 360 vids do not look pretty boom on YouTube.

Hello !
Can you tell me how I can import your script as a panorama template ?
Just to save as text file and change the extension to .pano does not work.

Fritz, you have to paste into a .XML file and put it in the "users" presets folder of Autopano Video (c:\users\....\AppData\... etc.)

Let me know how the preset works for you.
Plus check out the latest BETA1.0.2.0 from KODAK Asia website ( http://kodakpixpro.com/AsiaOceania/jp/s ... nloads.php ) which is a massive improvement over standard version. For me makes AutoPano Video obsolete.

JamesSon - well actually you can upload 8K to Youtube now, and it would be better to render as high as possible in Cineform and then sharpen and downres in your editing program. I'm really trying to maximize sharpness and quality. Hence I'm so curious to see a real example of the pixpros stitched to their highest output. Because what I have seen so far, doesn't really impress me.

Hi guys,
I'm happy to have found some colleagues working on the same issues. Any idea how I can import an XML template preset on a mac? Is it possible to get a completely seamless stitch with the Kodak sp360 4k? I've been testing for a few days now with both Kodak's own stitching software and Autopano... I'm very close, but there's always some artefacts left...
Thanks!

I assume there will always be some ghosting and artefacts, especially when you are not using a fixed position (read: tripod) to film. Autopano Video - as I understood - even has RMS curves for this case where you would dynamically balance the stitching throughout the movie to cater for these.

Interesting. I shot a short doc everything on a tripod, but when people move across 'stitch lines' there's definitely some ghosting and similar artefacts unfortunately. I'm going to keep digging though, there has to be a way!

Can you be more explicit about exactly the path to the Autopano presents folder on a Mac?
