This window enables you to check all parameters of your images. You can also modify them if they are not accurate. This information comes from EXIF data saved by your camera in each image. If Autopano Pro does not recognize your camera model, please send us an e-mail at: support(at)autopano.net (replace (at) by @).
To modify a parameter for an individual image, double-click on the value you wish to change, e.g. Speed.
Note: changes made to the values at the head of the window, to do with focal length and lens type will be applied to all the images in the group. So, for example, if some of the images are fisheye and some standard you will need to make changes to the lens type values for each individual image.
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 (silver photography). The greater the focal length, the more the lens angle is reduced and the more the field of vision is restricted (see opposite figure).
The size of the sensor depends on you camera model. You can verify here if the software recognized your camera, and change the value of this parameter if it is incorrect. If your camera's model is not on the list, please send us an e-mail so that we can add it: support(at)autopano.net (replace (at) by @).
Additional optical equipment (like a wide converter lens) can be added to some compact digital cameras. If you use such an equipment, you should set its parameters in this field, because the camera does not recognize the data coming from this additional equipment, and therefore does not add information related to this equipment in the image-incorporated EXIF data.
Focal (35 mm eq.)
This field gives the focal length with an equivalence of a 35 mm lens.
You can verify here what lens type has been used: Standard or Fisheye. You can modify this parameter if the software does not recognize the lens type adequately.
When the group of images contains one or several Fisheye photos, a second tab appears, called "Fisheye crop". This tab enables you to set Fisheye parameters and define the image zone to crop to.
This window lets you define the Fisheye zone to be kept. You can act on the selection circle: move it, make it bigger or smaller. If you want the circle enlargement or narrowing to be focused on the circle center, press the Ctrl key while dragging the mouse (left click). You can see an example in the animation below.
