Autopano Video - Timeline
The Autopano Video timeline will help you to temporally edit your stitching at two levels: geometry and colors. For example if you pass through a door from the indoor to the outside during your 360 video both color and geometry change, the timeline will give you the power to adjust your stitching in such conditions.
The timeline of Autopano Video is divided into several lines:
- the first one for the edition of the horizon (geometry)
- the second one for editing the stitching
- the third one to correct the colors
- the last one to edit your masks over the time.
A state is a period during which all the frames are stitched following the same reference. The reference is an editable panorama used as a model for the stitching of the input videos. To edit a state you just have to click on Edit under the preview of your 360 video. A state can be used as a keyframe if it last just for one frame (reduce the during of a state to his minimum size). Here is a detailed view of a "Keyframe":
A transition is the period between two states. During this period all the parameters are interpolated following a curve, linear by default. You can chose the type of interpolation by right clicking on a transition -> edit and chose the curve you want. All modifications made to the stitching won't be saved if your current time cursor is placed on a transition: this is a non-editable period.
