After solving quite a bunch of issues on how to stitch this panorama (I have published a first version in September).
Here is the final version of this panorama of Rouen.

325 pictures stitched together in Autopano.
The shots were done with a Canon 5D, 28-300mm lens and a Nodal Ninja 5 panoramic head.
The parameters used are :
- focal length 300mm,
- 100 ISO,
- 1/15 at f/16,
- camera in vertical position.

Nice and very good result for your first gigapan :001_smile:

Two things I would notice:

why did you use gigapan player ? instead of KRPano (more powerful and easy to use for navigation in my idea) ?
Better weather for next shooting session :biggrin:

Wow, that was very nice. I love it.

It would have been nice if the weather was better, but that is one thing nobody can control.

Great job.

This is a huge panorama - I don't believe people realize the amount of work that goes into making a panorama of this size.
well done YvesG

Amazing pano but I really don't like the gigapano interface. The dragging motion is irritating and weird.

To be clear, I used Autopano giga to stitch the pictures.
Inside Autopano you have the possibility to import picture by saying that you shot with a gigapan robot (which is not my case, I did all pictures manually with my Nodal Ninja 5 head. One picture every 2,5¬? horizontally and a line every 5¬?).
I noticed that by using that trick the assembly proposed by Autopano had a better result.
Of course, this is only a trick to improve the beginning of the stitching process.
Then you have to analyze every link that is having a bad mark.

Concerning gigapan viewer and krpano.
The choice is so simple, till now, I did not understand how to use krpano.
If someone can support me on this subject, I will be glad to learn.

As you use AutoPano Giga, it means you have AutoPano Tour included with it (download latest beta from Kolor website) and it allows you to publish your panoramas directly in krpano format without hassles to understand all details :wink: You should give it a try :biggrin:

Thank you Vincen for your answer.
I thought Autopano tour was limited in terms of number of pixels to present a panorama.
I have used Autopano tour to present virtual tour, but the aspect is quite poor.

Poor quality you get is due to the fact you don't have a KRPano licence. When you use AutoPano Tour with a valid KRPano licence, you get full resolution when you produce your virtual visit :001_smile:

That means that if I get the KRPano license, I will be able to publish a gigapixels panorama with it ?
No size limitation ?

Right :001_smile: KRpano is able to publish gigapixel panoramas without problems :001_smile: An example of a virtual tour made with AutoPano Tour (it's not Gigapixel but pretty good quality I think :wink:

Now I understand.
I had seen this virtual tour on facebook, where you had put a link.
I loved it, but didn't understand that you had done it with a KRPano license.
I will go to autopano website and krpano to see how to purchase it and implement it.

The last point I have to clarify will the way the store the panoramas.
When going to gigapan, I do not take care of the output size, which are often close to 5 or 10 Gb.
I guess that if I create my own tour, I will have to store them somewhere else.
For the time being I do not have my own website (just a blog limited to 4Gb).

Don't forget if you bought your Nodal Ninja head in my store that you got a voucher with it that grants you a rebate on KRPano licence :biggrin:

For info my virtual visit of 7 Laux that you have seen is 650Mo of files on my webserver. If you are looking for hosting, I can help you :001_smile: Special promotion for Christmas, you get double of time for offer you select :biggrin: (http://magasin.skivr.com/hosting/hosting.html)

Thank you Vincen.
Yes, I have bought my Nodal Ninja 5 on SkiVR and I am satisfied.
I am going to have a look at your offer.
Thank's again.

How do I say this without being insulting? Loose the snow. Keep the pano from rotating on it's own. Take out those huge polygon things. You've done too good a job....

Snow is something visitors appreciate during winter on mountains panoramas :001_smile: For rotation, customers preferred it that way :biggrin: for polygons, I'm going to add an option to see or not at wish legends with polygons :wink: For that last point, Autopano Tour needs enhancements to allow more nice legends possibilities !

Well, I quite agree with DemonDuck.
I am not fan of the auto-rotation option, even if we can stop it.
And I like the snow. :wink:
