Topic: Upload / Tiled images for large uploads

I don’t think you are going to have any joy there.

When you use Stitch to “stitch plus upload” it generates multiple views of the image (you’ve probably seen that GigaPan refers to a “tree structure”).

Maybe someone else can confirm or reject, but it seems logical that the Uploader on it’s own also creates the same multiple tiles and the multi-level tree images. This would be consistent in that this process remains on your PC and the server is only hosting the image. If that’s the case then you wouldn’t be able to load as separate sections of your image as the multiple images in the tree structure would need all your image available at the same time and Uploader could only be used in a single pass for one panorama.

The reason I have some doubt though is while Stitch definitely creates all the tree structure as it leaves it all behind on your PC, I’ve never seen anything left behind from Uploader. I’ve always assumed though that it just tidied up afterwards.

I think you’re really just best to stitch your tiles together first and then just allow Uploader to run with the single file.

If you’re asking as your favourite software doesn’t do this, I have used the freely available ImageMagick to stick uniform sized tiles together (and it can be done by a simple batch file). I think my biggest file so far would be about 1.6 gigapixel this way. Down side is I’ve found that you will be larger than a standard TIF file for the images you are talking about, and ImageMagick kept creating PSB and PSD files that the current version of Photoshop wouldn’t read. Saving as a PNG file worked though (and then you could run that through Photoshop or something else if needed to save in whatever format). Then just allow Uploader to do the job it was designed to do. Just be careful with PNG though as Windows enjoys reading the whole file just to create a thumbnail – and that is very, very slow indeed with gigapixel images!

Has anyone figured out a way to upload really large images (5+ gigapixels) that are sliced into tiles?

If the release is the same as used on the NX20, and based on the first schematic here, you may need a 68K resistor between pins 4 and 5 of the micro USB.

Id like to use my NX1 on the epic, but no cabeling, ive tried with a converter plug to get the two right usb plugs, but no go. THe trigger is just a short on a usb plug, so should be simple to make one i guess, would be nice to know what pins do what on the epic though. Nayone got any ideas?

Topic: Upload / Can't find software download or contact support

I’m able to log in on the site, but can’t seem to through the uploader, and therefore can’t upload. The support link doesn’t work, and I’s guessed that since there are no new posts here, this wouldn’t work either.
But it did.
Can someone help me troubleshoot my inability to log in with the uploader?

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / Epic Pro with Panasonic GH4 or GH3

Does the remote port on the Panasonic look like a mini stereo plug (like a set of earbuds)?

If so, I don’t believe that Gigapan makes the correct cable for that camera. It would have 4 contacts on it (not 3). If I’m right the Canon cable that comes with the EPIC pro would fit the remote port but wouldn’t work correctly.

Topic: Upload / 360pano

How do I upload a 360 degree pano? The ration is 2:1 and works on other sites and when I add to panotour pro to host on my website. However, when I upload to gigapan it keeps the photo flat and does not wrap the image into a full sphere like the TIME magazine pano on the home page.

I would first check settings to make sure MIRROR LOCK UP is OFF. Alternatively, try using SHUTTER TEACH to set up the unit.

I have the same problem. All the links on the terrible convoluted website are for “learning how to upload” or to buy Gigapan products. The link posted above is for Gigapan Stitch and it looks like you need to own the hardware to register it. Does Gigapan no longer offer free services?

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / Nikon D5300 double shot

Hi guys
I own a Epic Pro and use it with my Nikon D5300.
The problem i have is, that the system shot two pictures at the same position. If i use the Live view there will be only one Picture.
Is there any issues with the settings or any other problem?

Thanks for help and i am sorry for my english

I also want a cord for a7r2,
I get by at the moment using a wired remote and press the button when the pro stops moving before it moves to the next image place.

No need to hack anything. you can plug in your battery charger cable directly to the pro. Look under the the display on the right hand side of the panel, right above the Epic Pro decal.

Topic: Upload / Power cable for continuous gigapanning

Hi, is there a cable you can use to power the Epic Pro continuously without having to change the battery? Would find that very useful. Would hacking the using power cable to fit the battery hole work? Thanks, James PS would have put the question in the hardware section but it seemed to have a technical issue.

It is literally impossible for me to find the Uploader software link… I remember it always being hard to find, but now it is nowhere to be found. Not a single link for contacting support works either. Extremely annoying

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / gigapan pro with sony A-7

with a bit of basic electronics knowledge and the info here:

http://www.doc-diy.net/photo/remote_pinout/#sony

it should be possible to buy a cheap wired release on ebay (for the multiconnector) and make a pigtail to convert one of the existing EPIC Pro cables to Sony.
