Recommended Workflow

by alexojeda » Wed May 20, 2015 5:51 am

Hi, what would be the recommended workflow with images for a 360 Panotour? I shoot RAW, and use Lightroom and Photoshop for my non-panoramic images. Should I import the RAW's into Lightroom, tweak and retouch them, export and JPEGS or TIFFS, and stitch with Autopano Giga? Or do not tweak and retouch out of Lightroom and do it after I exported out of Autopano? Other way? Which would be the best way to do it and avoid artifacts, lines or different colors between stitching, etc?

Many thanks!

It's best to do your editing before stitching, unless the content that needs editing can be limited to a cube face (example: nadir) otherwise there is a big risk that you will end up with colour differences between the two ends of the panorama, forming visible lines or artefacts when it's projected in Panotour.

Hi, Annis, many thanks for your response. I appreciate your help.

So basically I import the RAW, tweak, color correct and retouch in Lightroom/photoshop (dust spots, color, neutral hazer, etc.), sharpen and export. Then stitch in Autopano. Is there any settings in the color correction/retouching that I shoudlnt mess with or be lighthanded about? Besides for example, vigentting, lens profile autocorrection? Midttone contrast? To get the best possible images to Autopano. Many thanks, again!

I shoot raw, develop in DXO pulling shadows caring for the highlights correcting optical flaws vignetting reducing haze etc, stitching in APG, making cube-faces using krpano, fixing the nadir in Photoshop, making sphere from cube-faces using krpano. final touch in Photoshop before PTP.

This workflow suits me, mostly doing outdoor spheres.
