AutoMate 1.0 from The Gadget W...


This nearly 2 gigapixel panorana was created from 549 individual photographs that were taken over a period of 51 minutes with a Canon 20D and a 400 mm 5.6 lens atop of AutoMate, a motorized pano head from The Gadget Works. It was stitched with AutoPano Pro 64-bit version. The photographs were taken near Sunset Point on the rim of Bryce Canyon. There were very few people in the canyon on November 12, when this pano was taken, but there are a few visible on the rim. You can also see many of the trails that wend throgh the canyon.

    Are you able to add your file to the Google Earth 4.2 version. You can do it from Gigapan.

    Yes, I had to reduce the image about 65% to make it small enough to upload with Gigapan's uploader.

    Well, it seems like you're doing everything right, so I'm at a loss to explain the failure. I've only used the GigaPan Stitcher for my own GigaPans, so I can't really compare it to AutoPano Pro (though I'm eager to try their GigaAutoPano Pro product when it's ready for prime time). I'd recommend giving the GigaPan Stitcher a try. You may need to rename your input images in order to get them to align nicely in GigaPan Stitcher since I'm pretty sure the AutoMate robot shoots in a different sequence than the GigaPan robot. You want the files to be numbered consecutively starting at the top left, increasing as you move down the first column, and then working down each successive column moving to the right. I suspect if you can get over having to rename the original images you'll enjoy GigaPan Stitcher's ability to deal with large stretches of blue sky - I notice the image above is rather truncated at the horizon, presumably because AutoPano Pro has troubles where it lacks control points.

    Assuming your image is saved as RGB, 8 bits per channel, interleaved, which version of the Gigapan Uploader are you using? Also, have you tried stitching your image with the GigaPan Stitcher?

    I think I can solve your problem. To upload a GigaPan in Photoshop RAW format you need to append the file dimensions in the title. So if your file was 'bryce.raw' with a width of 100000 pixels and a height of 20000 pixels you'd want to rename it 'bryce_100000x20000.raw'. There's a more thorough discussion of the Photoshop RAW upload requirements here: forum.gigapan.org/viewtopic.php?f=1 1&t=187&p=1006&hilit=raw#p1006

    Seems your pixel count doesn't agree with the website's. Did you upload the full panorama? By the way, it's a great image. Very sharp, even when zoomed fully in - just like you'd expect from a DSLR.
