Extraction of a video frame
The easiest way to extract a frame from your video is to use VLC Media Player.
Open your video, go to «Video > Take Snapshot». A snapshot of that frame will be created, usually placed on your Desktop or our Documents.
Creating the panorama
Click on "Detect", and that's it.
In automatic mode, Autopano will likely create 2 optimization groups: one for the video frame and one for the pictures.
Each group is calibrated separately by the optimizer as the video will very often have different properties than the pictures (e.g. a smaller FOV).
Save the .pano file, then in the layer editor un-tick the frame so that you can render the equirectangular panorama (360°x180°) without the frame showing.
Once this is done, refer to the Importing a Livepano documentation to import your Livepano in Panotour.
