APP/APG v2.0 Image Settings
This window will allow you to verify your image's parameters. You can modify the parameters if they are wrong. The information comes from the EXIF data saved along with each image by your digital camera. If Autopano Pro does not support your camera model, please send us an email at the following address: support(at)autopano.net (please replace (at) with @).
The focal length is the distance between the optical center of the lens and the light sensitive surface of the sensor (digital photography) or the film (film photography). As the focal length gets bigger the lens’s angle diminishes as well as the filed of view (see diagram).
Camera Sensor Scaling
The size of the digital sensor varies with the camera type and model. You can verify here if the software recognizes your camera, and modify the parameter if it is incorrect. If the make and/or model of your camera is not listed, please contact us so we can add it to the list: support(at)autopano.net (please replace (at) with @).
Additional optical equipment (like a wide converter lens) can be added to some compact digital cameras. If you use such an optical device, you should set its parameters in this field as the camera does not recognize the data coming from this additional equipment and therefore does not add information related to this equipment to the image-incorporated EXIF data.
Focal (35 mm eq.)
This field displays the focal length in 35mm equivalent.
Here you can verify what type of lens was used for the capture; Standard or Fisheye. You can modify this parameter if the software did not recognize the right type of lens.
When your image group contains one or several images taken with a Fisheye type lens, a second tab, called "Fisheye crop" appears in the dialog. This tab will allow you to set your Fisheye parameters and define the cropping area.
This window lets you define how to crop the image to retain the area of the image you wish to keep. You can interact with the selection circle by moving it around or making it larger or smaller. If you wish to enlarge or shrink the circle from its center, press the keyboard CTRL key then click left and move the mouse while keeping the CTRL key down. The following animation illustrates the principle.
