I guess maybe what I'm asking is what are you guys export settings on blending? And is the shoulder issue because I have the rig only a foot above my head and that's too close?
Do we get to see the image?

So the closer an object is to the camera rig (such as your shoulders) then the more noticeable the parallax error will be. As a general rule I try to keep the camera rig at least 10 feet away any close passes of objects.

Also, I think this video will help you understand how to best remove seams. I found it very helpful (although Step 3 is outdated, but below I share the updated solution.)

There is a trick to help reduce stitching errors and some parallax when shooting with a GoPro rig. When optimizing in the control point editor, there are some settings which can improve the overall stitching (see link below). Although this can be tricky because with these settings, you are allowing the footage pieces to be moved individually of each other according to the control points. So what looks like a perfect stitch in one frame, later on in the timeline might not be quite the same.
"The GoPro cameras seem identical but optically different. The sensor of the cameras is not perfectly aligned to the lens and therefore each camera has its own lens distortion model. That is why we need to change the lens distortion correction settings in Autopano."
