Re: Stitching two 360deg images -> possible? how?

I have a few questions on this topic too: ⋅ • What lens setting should we use with a 360ºx180º equirectangular image as an input to APG? ⋅ • Is it possible to "lock" one 360º image and use APG to warp other images to match it as exactly as possible? The goal would be to...

Re: Oculus Error on GoPro VR Player

we are having this exact issue on all machines with more than one GPU. The single GPU machines work as expected. Vive works better than Oculus, but we still do not see video in the headset, just the default Vive 3D empty grid that you get when an app is loading.

.pano files not associated w/APG?

I just had to reset the association of .pano files and APG, I'm suspecting a Windows update or something on the Windows side, but I'm reporting it here just in case it is something you guys did. It was trying to open them in the Photos app.

Shared Memory pipe to GoPRoVR Player unreliable

I find that I need to turn this button on and off constantly in AVP to get the image to refresh in GoPro VR Player. Also, the setting to use shared memory was off and hidden in the GoPro VR Player settings, I would recommend a more clear instruction to the user on where that setting is and how to se...

Re: h264 files not working Windows 10: [SOLVED]

Hey Martin, as an update to this, it looks like a recent Windows update did 2 things: 1) broke Quicktime playback of h264's from AVP 2) added the ability to play 360 videos with GoPro VR player-like pan and scan rectilinear perspective So it works, but not the way it used to, perhaps in a better way...

Cineform and Uncompressed renders broken:

Uncompressed renders are coming out 320x160, regardless of the resolution in the render settings, Cineform AVI renders crash instantly on render, and Cineform .mov files will not play in VLC w/Cineform codec installed but they will play in Adobe products. The Cineform .mov files also crash Resolve.

Re: Render to layered exr or individual cams?

one more thing - when using the current "turn all the cameras but one off in APG and render in AVP", we get an image with no alpha, it is comped over black. And there is no blending applied, so it will never match 1:1 with what the stitched full render from AVP looks like.

bypass color for export:

One of the main reasons that high-end projects lean away from AVP towards CaraVR is color science - it is very difficult to control AVP, and while the image processing tends to do a good job of automatically balancing things, it does not offer the fine control that Nuke offers. I'd love to see highe...

Render to layered exr or individual cams?

The option in APG to render a panorama to a layered .psd is incredibly useful in cleanup, you need to include an option like that in AVP!! While there is currently a crazy inefficient and error-prone) way of doing it by turning cameras on and off in APG and re-rendering in AVP, we really need this t...

render to image sequence: still unusable - too slow!

This has long been an issue in AVP but it appears to still be a problem in AVP 3: rendering to a video file I get 10fps, rendering to jpg, tiff, or png I get 0.01fps. I would understand an i/o hit of a certain percentage, but this is orders of magnitude different, and just utterly un-usable. Is ther...

Batch Render Option:

There needs to be an "add the current open project to render queue" option, either in the render dialog or in the Batch window. Also, I thought the Batch was going to be made available as a standalone and/or accessible as a commandline executable, I can't find info on this if it is indeed ...

Timecode feedback:

Thank you guys so, so much for finally including timecode in AVP!!

I prefer to make the visible TC larger an...

h264 files not working Windows 10: [SOLVED]

I am trying to render to h264 and the resulting videos generate the error in the attached screenshot. It might have something to do with Directshow vs Media Foundation, as changing that backend setting in GoPro VR player got the video to play for a moment before crashing too.

AVP hangs while rendering preview (OSX and Win10) [SOLVED]

The new 2.6 gets stuck trying to render the preview, tried windows 10 and OSX, same result in both. I can hit the "edit" button to open it in APG and the images come in correctly so it's at least calculating the stitch properly. It's rendering the AVP preview that appears broken. I've turn...

stereo 360 stitching questions:

APG 3.0 - problem getting an HDR result

We just updated to APG 3 and everything is much better than previous versions, we love using it. But then it comes time to render, and it is proving frustratingly difficult to get the same types of results we got in 2.x We have spherical panoramas shot in bracketed exposure stacks, and want a single...

I hope that I can clarify the discussion. The TC uses a maximum down angle of 75 degree, as the footprint of the Orion/Merlin head has this size. For all lenses and camera combinations the TC calculates down angles, only for Fisheye in portrait mode I put 0 degree in as the calculations showed, tha...

We use HDR spheres for all kinds of CG lighting needs, not everything needs a nadir but occasionally we do. I'll take a look into renting a 15mm to give it a try and see if it does a better job than the 8mm without adding too much time to acquisition, that's a good suggestion. The Promote works well...

It's 42seconds of just exposures, so the head move + settle time is in addition to that. While the NN solution is working for us, we've been looking for a solution that is ideally completely automated so we can set it up and let it run while we take other measurements and reference images with anoth...
