  1. Stitching software

    #1

    Here's another question we get asked - what software do people use. This is an important question that is based on many factors like price, type of panoramas, output etc. So I thought I would simply ask the public at large what they use for "stitching" software. We'll let this poll run for awhile and see how it pans out (no pun intended)
    Thanks for taking part.

    I really thought Autopan would get more hits.

    Hi Dennis, I personally have not used Autopan, guess I should give it a go. We have heard a few folks (through our customer inquiry form) say they do use this software more so than what the current stats reflect.
    It will be good to see how the poll pans out long term - no pun intended
    cheers Bill

    I use PTAssembler, and have it call AutoPano to generate control points. Then I use Enblend or Smartblend to handle seams. The new version of PTA will even "stack" for exposure (a la HDR) and/or focus (a la Helicon Focus or CombineZM). Since the poll was limited to two choices, I went with PTA and "Other". I'm surprised PTGui has so many more than PTA.

    I use PTAssembler But I think PTGui is more popular because of the greater ease that it handles 360x180.
    the preview feature in PTAssembler is a very nice and useful touch , for visually levelling and setting the vertical. as well as
    for quickly showing other projections.

    I believe Autopano in the poll list should really be Autopano Pro - the stitcher. The earlier Autopano is merely a control point generator.

    I'm very new to the panorama genre and I started with Panorama Factory until I selected it in this poll and found I was all on my own lol. I've been trialling PTGui for the last couple of sequences I've done and it is so more accurate stitching the images. Plus it handles HDR bracketed images sets which I almost always use. Thank you for the poll it's made a huge difference

    Bill, you should add also Autopano Pro to the vote. Works like a charm!!!

    I answered PTGui as well as Autopano Pro. PTGui being a thing of the past. A couple of months ago I tried Autopano Pro for the first time and now I have to admit I can't afford not to use it anymore. It brings the fun back to panorama making since it detects control points so much better, it directly reads raw camera files and it makes tedious tasks like straightening vertical lines and deleting the feet of the photographer from the nadir so much easier

    As I am just getting started with panorama photography, I did some research and picked Autopano Pro. I liked that fact that I could use the Raw NEF's straight from my Nikon D300. It just works with very little learning curve. The company is promising a free upgrade to the next major version 2.0 due out this fall which will include HDR capabilities.
