**Best of H.264: automatically selects the most appropriate profile from basic H.264 profiles (Baseline, Main or High) depending on the size of the final video.
 
**Best of BD H.264: automatically selects the most appropriate profile from basic BD H.264 profiles (Low res. or High res.) depending on the size of the final video.
 
**H.264 Baseline: appropriate for final videos with a maximum size of 320x240 pixels.

**Do not keep: uses the maximum size available without keeping the assembly proportions.

Preferences

The Preferences window is located in the Edit/Preferences/… menu in Windows and Linux. For Mac users, go to the Autopano/Preferences/… menu.

This window is divided into 4 tabs:

  • The General tab contains settings for Autopano’s use of system resources.
  • The Render tab contains encoding options for final videos.
  • The Preset tab includes settings for encoding options.
  • The Synchronization tab contains settings for synchronization.

Buttons at the bottom of the window appear in all tabs, but are only active for the current tab:

  • Restore default values: restores default settings of the application.
  • Cancel: cancels modifications and closes the output settings window.
  • OK: validation.
