360 panorama stitching

by LBernos » Wed Sep 21, 2016 12:33 pm

Hello!

Apologies for asking about this, i know there is a big chance this question is on the forums, but I have spent time looking for it but I cannot find any threads regarding on this.

I have 360 Panorama project and I am wondering if I can edit a 360 pano on a APG or any kolor software? I do the 360 pano stitch on GigaPan stitch software, but you cant do so much in it..

thank you guys!

Hi, I think the APG software is a lot more intuïtive and gives you more possibillities. For example, if the stitch is not good, you can always improve the control points (RMS >3 is good) or just choose the overlap from a different camera. If these things don't work you have a couple of extra possibillities. And worst case scenario (if I completely fucked up) I use after effects after the stitch (or photoshop).

But APG is a standard stitching program for our company

Thank you for your reply!

Actually I was trying all day to do a 360 panorama via APG, but it seems I cant do it. DO you know any links of tutorials regarding the process of stitching 360 panoramas?

Thank you

Thank you! sorry I am on the road so I cannot view the whole video. thanks for your help :)

One more thing.. while shooting a 360 panorama, how do you deal with the nadir? I mean do you take a separate photo of the floor then patch it later?

In panotour you can cover the nadir hole by uploading a .png file. just as easy as that (you can make it bigger or smaller later on). Also you can use different patches/panorama. was convenient for me to cover multiple stores.

Hello!

Could that .png file the same as the flooring where my tripod stood? I mean, need to make it blend so like the camera was just floating there. sorry, my words are a little confusing but I am sure you know what I mean. :)

How do you suggest I do that?

Thanks man... youre a big help

you mentioned gigapan in above posting. you can use the gigapan importer in APG so the correct alignment supports the stitching process...
