Features of Autopano Pro
Behind Autopano Pro's simplicity and ease of use lurks a stitching engine based on advanced algorithms. The image stitching technology (SIFT) included in Autopano Pro was developed as part of a research project at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver (Canada). It has been mathematically proven to be the best technology in the world at recognizing similarities between images.
Do you have a folder or a memory card full of photos? Launch detection on all images; Autopano Pro groups together only those images that make up panoramas and ignores all irrelevant images. No need to specify the order of images in each view: Autopano Pro will find them by itself. The detection power of Autopano Pro is much better than the human eye, so the software can find relationships that you might have missed visually.
During shooting, it often happens that people or objects move. In this case, a typical blend of images creates ghosting (transparent artifacts) in the overlap zone. Autopano Pro includes an anti-ghost blender applicable even on gigapixel images. A world first.
For difficult image stitchings, Autopano Pro previously offered a control points editor to force the software to add links in user-defined areas. Version 2.5 goes further by allowing point-by-point manual addition of links between adjacent images. There is no reason to miss a stitching, however complex.
Support of fisheye lenses
Autopano Pro can assemble images taken with a fisheye lens. You can create 360 x 180° panoramas with a minimum of images.
