APG Bracketing orientation bug?

by Chani » Fri Sep 04, 2015 11:53 am

When using APG for stitching 360x180 equirectangular panoramas, there appears to be a detection bug when using anything above 3 brackets. The shots I do with 5 brackets (or more?) always detect the image upside down. Has anyone else noticed this?

Once we have seen that it is an issue that has not affected other in this forum, it is most likely that this is something in your images or your settings.
Does the problem happens in one set of images or several of them? (Perhaps all?)
Can You share a set of images in which this problem appears to reproduce this behavior and do some tests ?

I vaguely recall seing that happen once.

But if it did it would not have bothered me because it's so easy to re-orinetate the pano in the Panorama editor using the Yaw/Pitch/Roll tool.

This happens with all images I take with more than 3 brackets. I shoot 6 round and one up.

If I can get a chance to take some 'test' shots for upload I will.

Under those conditions, you are right, it would not bother me. The problem is have is my workflow. On most jobs, I can be shooting up to 100 panoramas each day. Sometimes, It is even more than this (nearer 200).

This means I have to use the batch stitch option which does not allow for rotating the panorama

I have switched back to PTGUI now because it handles large numbers of fairly large equirectangular panoramas much better than APG does. And the template stitching in PTGUI does exactly what I would expect. The one in APG does not do what you would expect a template to do.

It would be good that you make available a set of your images for test
