APG (Mac) loses temp directory setting

Hi, from time to time, APG loses one of the registered temporary directories. I have two temp directories registered. 1st is on an external drive (Thunderbolt RAID system) and one is local. When I render a gigapixel panorama, sometimes after a few hours I get the warning from macOS, that local stora...

Re: Using AP(G) with manual pano head

Great idea. Thanks! Will try that as soon as I have the time. In case of issues, I'll get back here.

Thanks a lot!

Re: Using AP(G) with manual pano head

Thanks Olivier, will do once I have some footage. Export an xml file? You mean, I assemble one panorama manually in APG, then export an XML so I can use that XML for all future panoramas I create with the same layout/pattern? That should be doable. Then I should create the first panorama in a room w...

Re: Using AP(G) with manual pano head

I see - good to know! However, it seems this module can only deal with a layout where all rows / columns have the same number of exposures? I will mainly be shooting full-spherical panoramas manually, so I will have one Nadir and one Zenith image and the nearer I get to the equator, I'll have more a...

Using AP(G) with manual pano head

Hi all, so far I have only used a motorized head that writes an XML file (Seitz VR Drive 2) and then imported using the VR Drive wizard. Now I'll begin to also use a manual panorama head. I couldn't find advice on the workflow without an XML file in the Autopano documentation, though. Do I simply lo...

Transition templates with parametes adjustable in GUI?

Hi all, I'm using templates for transitions to make it possible to use "lookto()" transitions with different speed parameters. However, currently I create one new template for each speed parameter variant that I need. This is becoming clumsy with increasing number of very similar templates...

Re: Automatically fade out pano title [SOLVED]

Okay, thanks, this sounds great. Would you mind giving me a hint how / where I can enter that code? As far as I know (cannto test it at the moment) the Dayled Action plugin doesn't allow to directly enter some code, just pick an action from the action tree. Do I need the krpano code plugin for that?...

Hi all, I'm looking for a solution to make the title of each pano in my tour appear when the pano is loaded and disappear (preferably slowly fading-out) after a few seconds. There is the plugin "Title", which can show the title, but it shows it permanently. There is the plugin "CAOTE&...

Re: Lens correction in LR before stitching?

It's not about HDR at all, just about if applying lens correction before or while stitching leads to better stitch results.

Lens correction in LR before stitching?

Hi all, I've read contradicting recommendations about performing lens correction (distortion, vignetting) in Lightroom before importing images into Autopano (Giga). Some say, you *must not* do this before stitching, others say, you should do it. What is correct? What are the pros and cons of both me...

Re: Where to tonemap .hdr outpur files of APG?

okay.. both issues are solved by using another preset for batch processing. Instead of "soft2", which I thought would be a good basis to improve the overall image look on using Photoshop after stitching, I now used Fusion / Natural, and there I don't have those awful bright/dark block stuf...

Re: Where to tonemap .hdr outpur files of APG?

Okay, first pano done with that workflow. However, two things went wrong. First, it seems Photomatix does not treat every stack the same when doing batch processing. I batch-processed using settings as shown here: ishot-2018-01-20_20-46-301.png Output: 16bit Tiff. After stitching with AutoPano Giga ...

Re: Where to tonemap .hdr outpur files of APG?

Right. Will try it that way. The only drawback is that I cannot judge the HDR fusion / tone mapping result in the "big image", but have to judge it by the single images and guess if it will be good for the big image. But otherwise that workflow should be quite straight-forward and resource...

Re: Where to tonemap .hdr outpur files of APG?

So I take it you are using RAW, then add your 3 RAW images into Photomatix, and merge into a single 32 bit HDR image.. Then you take your HDR images and drop them into APG where you stitch the HDR images into one full image.. Is this right..?? Correct. If so, after stitching, you can save as a PSB ...

Hi Destny, Thanks for replying. Sorry, it seems I wasn't clear enough in my first post. Converting. Yes, that is exactly what I want to do but cannot. Before stitching, I convert 3 brackets to 1 32bit hdr. Then I stitch the hdrs to one big hdr. Then I want to convert the hdr to a tone-mapped PSB or ...

Where to tonemap .hdr outpur files of APG?

Hi all, so now I have, for the first time, used a HDR workflow that promised to be really good: - Exported 96 images (with bracketing of 3 images each position, so 32 positions) from LR - Batchprocessed in Photomatix Pro 6.0.3, so I have 32 files in 32bit .hdr format - Imported them into APG for sti...

Re: Focus Stacking Gigapixel Panoramas

Oh, this sounds really great. Thanks for asking.
I have also asked (via their website "chat" widget, which sends an email to the developers I guess), but never got a reply.
So, Arsenal could be a good tool for me. Will keep an eye on it!

Re: Tilted bracketing layers when stitching

One more data point, that might be of interest: The three bracket layers in the PSB do NOT show that blurryness. Only the fourth (fusion) layer does. However, the single bracketing layers are tilted against each other a bit. That means to me: It cannot be a stitching issue, as then it would be visib...

Tilted bracketing layers when stitching

It seems like a bug to me. Or is there a setting that I overlooked? I shot a spherical panorama with 32 positions and bracketing with 3 exposure variants, resulting in 96 images. I checked that the bracketing sequences are exactly aligned. Not a pixel difference. Perfectly aligned. See this screenca...

When will it be compatible with High Sierra (and also Panotour Pro)?
I may be forced to install a new system soon, and if possible I'd like to use the most recent macOS then.
