{PIC} Playing with Autopano and PTGui

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Father McKenzie, Mar 25, 2008.

  1. Got to the lake just as the sun was setting, this is an 8 picture pano
    using Autopano.
    I tried it with PTGui but couldn't get the opposite shoreline straight
    and PTG was putting a stright line through the rippled down the bottom
    below the buoy.

  2. Hey Fr - nice work, although I do think it wants a foreground
    element.. maybe a little row-boat..? Don't you keep one in your bag?

    I'm about to get into panoramas more over the next 6 months - i can
    feel it in my lenses.. And I really want to get the hang of them
    'stepped out' ones, just like the great man has demonstrated... (O:

    In PTGui, did you find the straightening thingies, (I think they are
    "T" control points..)? They have worked for me when things got a
    little bent, but it took me a while to work out how to use them. (Now
    that I know how to use them, I must have been pretty thick..)

    FWIW - I have found that the pandora plug-in for GIMP does a pretty good,
    automated job on panoramas.

    I have to say that I really like using Autopano--it's just so _easy_ to
    use! It is also nice being able to export a PtGUI file if any tweaks are

    Brilliant colours on the photo. I like the way the waves encircle the
    boat in the centre.

    Yes, but I find pandora much simpler.

    The extra control in Hugin comes in handy when you're pushing
    the envelope.

    Absolutely. I've only used pandora on fairly mundane projects.
