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.
