Autopano Video - Blending preset

When creating 360° with the standard workflow using cameras rigs, gopro rigs, you have parallax. This is inevitable.

Blending presets

Autopano Video proposes 2 blending presets allowing different results in the blending zones:

Smooth preset Sharp preset

The transitions are smooth, because both images are used and displayed, there is a smooth transition based on weighted pixels. It gives the typical ghosting effect. The transitions are sharp. A hard mask is used to make quick transitions on short distance. It looks like more natural than ghosts on parallax but still isn't perfect.
