    Ups,

    In case you have some time left, could you send the different sets of pics for lower rail setting @ 54, 55 , 56, 57 to check them?

    Hi John,

    he is using different LRS between 54 and 56 using Smooth's method we recommend. Then he seem to shoot a normal pano and is dealing with stitching errors.

    By the way: since some days I tried to open your website like other users. It does not open. Not the site about epcalib.html. Not the home page of your site. It is linked to this: http://perfectoasis.com/showthread.php?sid=5110

    So long and kind regards,
    Heinz

    Heinz, I know about the problem on my web site. If you copy the required URL directly into your browser, it loads ok. Clicking the link in the post redirects you somewhere else. All of the html files on my site were hacked by the addition of two lines of code at the end, which came to light a few days ago. I have uploaded fresh copies of all these files but that doesn't seem to have cured the problem. How the files were corrupted I don't know. There's a Google Redirect virus, described here: http://www.2-viruses.com/how-to-fix-...-virus-problem . I installed a new Windows 7 on a spare disc today and before doing anything else, I tried clicking on links in my posts at the PTGui forum and that gave the same redirect action. I am now considering moving my web site to a new server in the UK (it's presently on a GoDaddy server, and I found reports of similar things happening to other users on their systems - but no solutions).

    John,

    I could solve the first problem by connecting to www.Johnhpanos.com instead of the epq..html and have set this to the forum for other users. But some time later I got the same redirection. What a pity.

    I will try to find out as well what happened.

    I found this on Google: http://www.google.com/search?client=...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    Cheers,
    Heinz

    Hi,

    instead of shooting 4, 8, 4 shots you could try to shoot 8 around @+/- 30º and an extra Zenith +90º and Nadir1 and Nadir2 @-90º. You could compare this version concerning CP. 8 shots @0º prevents from having overlap in horizon area on the other way.

    John,

    My web site was hacked several years ago. The hacker placed a folder with hundreds of links to porn sites. They also deleted every file called index.html. The problem was not with the provider, but with a very easy password I was using. Once I used a very strong password, hacking and virus infections went away. I am with Godaddy.com.

    The solution is to always keep a good backup of your web site and use a strong password.

    Dennis, Thanks for the advice. I maintain a mirror of the web site on my PC which is used for updating the site, so I automatically have a backup of it. Changing the password is a sensible precaution, but I expect to upload the files to a new server in the next few days anyway. I hope that will deal with the present access problems.

    Hello John, Heinz,
    i'm back,

    i'll try to restart some tests maybe next week, and upload the results of LRS 54 and 56mm ... and see if PTGUi can stitch better than APP.
    i delete all my last trials, but i want to try different settings in APP...
    I'll let you know anyway.
    I tried quickly yesterday a 360° pano i did in Monument valley, and no stitching problem (but there is no reasons of such issues in Landscape) i'll show you the result when editing ;)
    Have a great day !!

    Thx for response,

    Hope you had some great days. I already had a short visit to your great pano. It works for me in Safari. It takes some time, actually at first you get a white page.

    Success and fun with all your stitching.

    All Right, i'm Back !! (ok, i went to See Terminator 2, 3D in Universal studio ...)

    so with little time this morning i was able to try again my settings
    in the following link you can see the sawtooth method.

    With 54mm (this is LRS) we can see slightly movement, with 56mm this is perfect ...
    however as you can see from the pano @56mm there is way to more default in the ceiling ... This is driving me mad !!!
    i'm sure if John use PTGui he will have a perfect stitch.
    Btw, i DL a trial of PTGUI but i'm not able to get a good stitch, it always says that my control point are bad (even when set manually ...)
    i'll send the link to APP forum and to PhotoPano to see if ppl can help me with setting of APP....

    Thanks for your help ...

    [Edit]
    i forget to mention that in APP, i remove all automatic control point, and then add them all manually...

    Well, not quite perfect: equirectangular stitch is at http://ge.tt/1SsXUKN/v/0 (1.5MB)
    .
    You have images in different orientations - the zenith and two nadirs - and PTGui prefers them all in the same orientation. Turn off auto rotation in the camera to avoid these propblems. You have also used auto white balance. Set a fixed white balance so that you have consistent colour thoughout the shots. (If you shoot RAW, convert with a fixed white balance. Avoid all auto adjustments).

    i think i get it !!! :)
    I deactivate the Auto rotate, and start a new bunch of pictures, again @-30° and +30° +Z+N, add all control point manually, and i think thats all good ...
    this was 1 room, have 6 more to do, with uni color on the wall, that will be a hell of a work, but this will be 4 later, my head is started to ache ... ;)

    I'll try this weekend at a different place with these settings and let you know!!!
    you can have a look at the equi and the .swf files in the link below (Zip file).

    John Thank you so much for your time and patience, i owe you many beers !!! :p

    If you have 6 more to do - all the same shooting configuration - shoot them in exactly the same way and use a template to stitch them. PTGui's automatic control point generator will work better after the images are aligned with a template (a project file for a similar successful stitch is applied via File->Apply template).
    .
    BTW, I uploaded a revised gepetto3.jpg file in place of the original, as I was able to get a slightly better stitch after making a change to do with the two nadir images and their orientation.
