There are many important options there including those to control the performance of Autopano and set defaults for rendering and saving completed panoramas.
Autopano Giga Preview Window – Scaled Down When Autopano starts, it presents a split window with one side for groups of files and the other for panoramas. From each group of files on the left, Autopano can detect any number of panoramas and add them to the right.
There, each panorama shows a rough preview and basic information: This information is there to assess if Autopano detected a panorama well. One key metric is the RMS value which measures how well images match in overlapping areas.
The lower the number, the better the match. High values usually appear either when a panorama is not taken properly or when photos are incorrectly identified as part of a panorama. This regularly happens multiple photos of the same subject are taken from different points-of-view. For a completely automatic workflow, Autopano only requires the user to press four buttons: Select Images, from the main toolbar, which puts a group of images on the left.
Detect, appearing above each group of images, to detect panoramas and make them appear on the right. Render, either for a particular panorama or for all of them, which makes the Render dialog appear. Render, again but from the Render dialog, to confirm quality and output options. Autopano Giga Panorama Editor – Scaled Down Should a panorama need modifications, a Panorama Editor window can be opened by clicking on the Edit button that appears above each detected panorama.
The Editor window presents a toolbar of icons to perform many automatic and manual tasks: Automatic tools like Straighten Panorama and Set Vanishing Point actually work extremely well with just one or two clicks. Other things, like Panorama Rotation which requires setting one angle-of-rotation of each of 3 axis without showing an interactive preview, are not very usable.
It is impossible to choose correct values to a sufficient degree of precision without interactivity. Some tools have been greatly improved though. Move Image now happens interactively with Autopano updating the warping of other images in real-time. Adjusting Exposure Fusion controls shows a preview window but it takes a long while to see each update.
While automation is Autopano Giga is extremely capable, it is sometimes necessary to tweak the stitching process.
An additional windows appear for editing control-points for each panorama. This can easily lead to dozens of windows open which becomes seriously confusing, so it is best to work on just a few panoramas at one time. A good stitch not only requires good control-points but also uniform blending of exposure and color.
This software copes very well with differences in exposure even when due to vignetting. The user can control which image is used to set exposure or color when rendering a panoramic image. Stitched panoramas preserve sharpness very well even across image boundaries. The blending algorithm leaves no visible seems, uniformly blending color and exposure. Overlap regions are rendered with the best pixels from each image and avoids blending-in lens artifacts such as chromatic aberrations.
Autopano remains the only software to render an aberration-free panorama from our test images so far. From the newly stitched panorama we can move on to make some edits — and this is where we see many of the interesting features of Autopano Giga 4.
The software automatically aligns the images in the sequence through ‘Control Points’. As you can see from our screen grab below, the control points from one image to the next are many — more than 70 in some cases. There is manual control over these control points too, though in our images we found little need to explore this comprehensive feature.
Control points For every sequence it is worth making changes to exposure, levels and colour. The end result is a pleasing, subtle HDR effect. These edits are quick and easy to make. Alternatively, Exposure Fusion allows you to weight the exposure for a preference to dark or light tones, while also enhancing these tones.
Autopano Giga comes with an automatic algorithm that corrects the ghosts coming from moving objects, and a new mask tool allowing you to choose what you want to keep or remove in overlapping areas. We have included these first efforts with Autopano Giga 4 and are very pleased with the results. It’s recommended to take some time to get familiar with the program’s design and number of tools available.
