Be sure to convert all source images in a panorama using the same settings, otherwise color or brightness differences may remain visible in the panorama. Can PTGui work with 16-bit images from start to finish (ie, no 8-bit conversion)? If you need more control, use a dedicated RAW converter instead and save the converted RAW files as 16 bit TIFF images. This preserves the image quality and full dynamic range of the source images.
Does PTGui run on my version of Windows / OS X2.22. After optimizing, PTGui shows me the average control point distance. PTGui continuously locks up for a few seconds and then becomes responsive again.3.9. I'm getting Out of Memory errors while running PTGui3.20. Since cropping does not alter the field of view of the visible part of the image, the cropped portion of the image will take the same space in the panorama as would the uncropped image. This may include modifying the field of view / focal length of the lens (if selected for optimization). The optimizer adjusts your project in such a way that the lowest control point distance is obtained. What kind of computer hardware do you recommend for use with PTGui? PTGui doesn't seem to use all available memory on my computer. My computer crashes occasionally while PTGui is running3.12. This only happens in the Batch Builder; the panorama is perfect if I use the same template in the GUI.3.24. Some control points in my project have a relatively high control point distance. How do I get straight lines to remain straight in the panorama? How do I use the Horizontal line and Vertical line control points? Generally, all images in a project should have the same crop size, unless individual lens parameters are used for the cropped image(s). I'm having trouble stitching images taken with the Nikon 16mm fisheye lens3.11. My panoramas stitched using a template in the Batch Builder have misalignments. Now there's a lot of unnecessary black space above/below the panorama, increasing the size of the output. The Crop Tab is intended to be used for lenses that use only part of the film/ccd plane, or for scanned images, where the scanned area is larger than the actual image.
