Hi all, I'm sure this has been asked before, but can somebody tell me in simple terms what Giga does over Pro before I purchase? To me, little difference which might be the answer (in other words, I'm not using any of the Giga features). The Lightroom plugin seems handy but not essential. What does the "HDR: customizable fusion" and "Export of image stacks for processing in third-party software (plug-in)" features do? Are there any extra killer features which are essential and worth the extra money?

No, if you want to work with stacks you better process them into single images using photomatix before loading them into autopano.

some people really want to use specialised tools to change the HDR-effect afterwards. In general not needed.

I do have GIGA running on my machines but never really needed the extra features.

I have to admit, without these my work would be a lot more difficult

a list of Features:
http://www.kolor.com/autopano-pro-giga-comparison.html

The "Export of image stacks for processing in third-party software (plug-in)" you mention is used to Export Image stack on the fly to external stacker (zerene stacker is supported) so you can also do Focus stacking without preprocessing the Images first...

I use zerene stacker... but I do use it preprocessing the Images... personal workflow Preference.
more important Feature of the giga Version is the Feature to save the Workspace, the Multiple viewpoints Support and the masking tool . These 3 Features for me are worth the giga
