Image Quality/Distortion -Omni Autopano(Stitching issue)

by jameskim » Mon Dec 18, 2017 1:58 am

There is a problem when I try to stitch a video.
A part of the video is distorted during playback by using Autopano Video.
By the way, there is no distortion at all when I use Autopano Giga.
It looks just normal so that the customer can't edit the distortion part when I use Autopano Giga.
I have updated both program as the latest version.

- On my first attached photo, it shows the distorted, wave photo and when I try to edit it , it is seen as normal (as attached on the third photo).

Following is the CX's specification:

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017)
Processor 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 32GB 2400 MHz DDR4
Macintosh HD
Graphic Card Radeon Pro 570 4096MB
Fusion Drive: 1.03TB (Can use 264.61GB)

Also I am having an issue with the import issue, when I try to import the file, the program stops.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U22VG6FIiK4 (It does not do anything when I press import and 3rd file gives a program error when it is just on a preview mode.)


Please advise me how to fix this problem ASAP, because I am running project which will be due soon...
Thank you very much guys.

Helo,

it seems that you are using a RC version and not the stable one? Can you confirm?
Also, are you using 2 different operating systems Windows and OSX? If so, do you have the same issue on both systems?
I'm a bit confused as you have a video that you stitch using Autopano Video withe the GoPro preset and another one you stitch using Omni Importer. Can you explain.
Finally, do you compute a D.WARP?

Best regards,
Olivier

Yes, Autopano is RC version. It is the file that we received when we first bought GoPro Omni.. It was not the finalized version. Would you be able to give me a link for the final, stabilized version?

Additionally, I was not trying to do stitching from the importer, but importer was used to import files from GoPro Omni and it did not import successfully. That's the reason why I have shared the video footage with you for this part.
Also, I made an additional inquiry about this because from the last importing video, it gives error when just looking as a preview.

I will be waiting for your prompt reply as it is almost our deadline of our project..
Thank you so much!

Hello,

You can download the stable version from http://www.kolor.com/download/
Remove all Alpha, Beta or RC version of AV3 before you install the final version. Then, make a new try and let me know.

Kind regards,
Olivier

Thanks. I have done everything you told me to do.

Now I have an issue with the video quality as the issue seems as if it is delayed for one frame/sec.

I have included 2 screen shots with the issue that I am having and plus the YouTube URL link below.

Please, reply back as soon as possible.
Thank you guys for your help as always.

Hello,

Can you use GoPro VR Player to be sure you haven't any issue with the quality of the video? http://www.kolor.com/gopro-vr-player/download/
A lot of 4K videos on Youtube look like a bad FHD.
What are the render settings used?

Best,
Olivier

No.. It is not a matter of YouTube.
I have tried playing it on GoPro VR player but it still does the same thing.

I have uploaded the video on Google Drive to provide how the video looks (without the effect of the YouTube playback issue).

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Uydvg ... 5KxKTGRV0N

The attached google drive file is setting done during the export and processed in dwarp.

I would be waiting for your prompt reply.

Thank you.

Hello,

Can you share or send the original footages without any post-processing?
D.WARP computation can create some issues

Cheers,
Olivier

Hello and happy new year!

There are some things you can manage in a better way to avoid that kind of problem.
First, people are too close from the RIG which means you cannot avoid parallax issues.
Second, you can easily manage the seams between cameras by putting the RIG at 45°. 4 cameras placed horizontally and the 2 others facing nadir and zenith. That way people or objects are not displayed on 3 cameras but 2.
D.WARP cannot manage all parallax issues especially with that complex case.
What you can do here is to use mask tool available on Autopano Giga. Each section of the timeline where you have someone on a seam must be edited into Autopano Giga to move the seams.
Here are some useful links:

Hope this can help.

Best regards,
Olivier
