Hi.. Its fairly easy to fix the nadir in most cases using Photoshop..

Here is a Video Tutorial on this... http://www.destinyvirtualtours.com/Fixi ... print.html

Nadirs with repetitive pattern carpets can be easily edited.. But if the pattern is not repetitive, it can be hard.. In that case, you will be better off capturing random images, then processing only the nadir images in APG, which will flatten the images into one flat image so you can use it to patch the nadir.. You can do a patch the nadir in APG but I find Photoshop is a better option.. Work with TIFs until the end..

Here are a few examples of a fixed nadir, using the same process as the video..

kolor also presents a method to handle nadir patching:

I usually do following....
place a coin exact on bottom under your tripod pole.
take the pano as normal.
than moving the tripod away, making a handheld image from about the height of the pano setup to make the bottom image with the coin in center. in most cases I can use this handheld image (I often do erase most outer part of this images (except of the center part with the nadir & coin area... ersaing & replacing with transparent layer)

Hi fellow,
I use to do something different, after follow those previously tips, of course, because I use to shoot my pictures with an circle fisheye without nadir correction hardware.
1. I use to shoot the images with the tripod legs almost closed, to see nothing of them.
2.I Choose put my gear in a place that the floor is too easy to clone.
3. I stitch my panoramas without concern about the nadir.
4. I use the panotour to open the panorama and than export faces cubes.
5. I use the floor cub to clone the image.
6. Use the panotour to import the cubes, and finally export the entire and corrected panorama.
