a Pixel identical stitch for bracketed layers based on a identical CP Point-Matrix may work, but maybe not. if you in extremm use a -8EV layer many parts are dark I guess. when the CP-Point Matrix from the 0EV layer is applied, mybe it cant work, what should be stitched if nothing/no pattern can be seen anymore in the darkness...
Agree. YouÂ´d definitely need an xml. Many users are over-challenged to use the xml for only ONE layer . . .
Destinys idea would be cool. a dedicated HDR application from kolor which is spezialized in handling really big panofiles and giving the enduser HDR Settings Options like photomatix, oloeno and others...
Why not adding a movie-editor, a post-pro-editor, a special-effects-option, a DOF calculator, an astrological-application, an USB-Espresso-machine . .
Specialised tasks need specialized applications.
Handling "really big" HDR-pano is easy: use an HDR-app FIRST and THEN stitch the mapped images (iÂ´m suggesting that for years now . .
The time it takes a stitcher to stitch and to edit the stitch for correct CPs using 8 layers of bracketing takes much more effort than to HDR/tonemap the sets first and stitch them as usual.
Klaus, the status quo is well known.
I also do use the bracketing with external programms first and stitch than the one fused/tonemapped layer.
But. Kolor did decide to add the functionality of layers and the bracketing feature. So why not making existing options better?
And Destiny did not demand/suggest to add 500 new features into autopano. She did suggest to create a dedicated HDR application detached from autopano.
So when using existing photomatix, oloneo, enfuse is ok, than also asking for such a Software coming from kolor - maybe with more Focus on Panoramas...
