Autopano - Common cases that don't stitch automatically
In some cases, Autopano fails to stitch some images sets, this is generally due to either the shooting or the subject shot. Then stitching may require more time to obtain a satisfying result: It is sometimes necessary to modify the detection and/or optimization settings, remove bad links and/or add new control points, re-optimize the panorama or recheck the links, etc. This tutorial shows several and different difficult common cases where such adjustments are required:
Type of issues
|Result after the detection using default settings||Example result (click images to zoom)||Why?||Solution|
|All the images are stitched or included to the panorama, but the result looks strange and messy.||This is due to repetitive patterns / similarities on the source images.||Tutorials here|
|The number of images included in the panorama is not the same as the amount of input images and/or it creates several panoramas.||This happens when source images are images of blue sky or white walls, any homogenic surfaces or details.||Tutorials here|
- Lens type issue: this could happen with a few lenses with which the focal length is too close from the switching value between Standard and Fisheye lenses, ie 15mm.
- Moving objects: typically, images of sea, waves or clouds when shooting under a windy weather.
