Topic: Web Site and Forum / Spaces between paragraphs

When I edit my descriptions I put a line space between paragraphs, but when viewing the gigapan the spaces are removed. Is there a trick to getting the spaces to stay in?

Topic: Photo Editors / Best editing software

The 30,000 pixel limit is not a photoshop limit, but a limit of the TIFF format. PhotoShop also has the .PSB format which has no such limitation.

Topic: General Gigapanning / In what format to save the Image plus 65535 × 65535

Stitch provides the ability to save as RAW for just that reason. After editing, the image can be saved as RAW again or as Photoshop PSB.

Topic: General Gigapanning / Strange stitching result...

Hi Mosley,
Unfortunately the Tiffs in 8 bits do not deliver a better result, the final image still in spherical mode and unreadable !
Any idea or suggestion, is this a faulty manipulation on my side or is it an issue due to the D800/D800E new fie type ?
Thanks for your help and advices
Pol

Topic: Photo Editors / Best editing software

I am new to editing Gigapan shots and see from a previous discussion there is a file size limit in Photoshop that my files are going to exceed (>30,000 pixels wide). I see Corel Paint is one option from that discussion but are there any other recommendations? Thanks

Thks Mosley !
I’m now trying the 8bits TIFF but I’m almost sure it will work without problem…
Nikon D800E has a new format of raw files, could the into TIFF format conversions have an influence on the software behaviour ?
I shall post the results here later today.

Luca:

I notice that the sky around the tops of the buildings looks different too. You may need to turn off the Auto Lighting Optimizer in your camera settings – it’s related to the DIGIC processor in your camera. Look at this old thread (if clicking on the link doesn’t work, copy and paste it into a browser) http://forum.gigapan.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=736

By the way, I love Venice – what’s the Italian word for ’Jealous"?

Topic: General Gigapanning / Strange stitching result...

Your matrix looks fine – unless there’s something odd about the files themselves, there’s no logical reason for TIFF and JPEG files with the same content to stitch differently.

Looking at your filenames – did you try to stitch 16-bit tiff files? The first thing I would try is to resave those as 8-bit and try stitching them again. Although Stitch technically supports 16-bit tiff files, there may be something in the file format that’s confusing the software.

As for the stitchefx question, here’s a quote from the technical manual:

For the first 14 days after the initial run, Stitch runs in “Efx mode” (meaning the features of Efx are enabled), always, whether the user has entered no license key, has entered a Stitch Basic license key, or a Stitch.Efx license key. After that trial period expires, the software functions in the mode dictated by its license key.

All of the imagers come with two Stitch Basic licenses, if I’m not mistaken, so after 14 days you should just have a running version of Stitch Basic.

Thank you, you are right I don’t give enough info, sorry…
Here are the links showing what I mean.
In the “options” nothing was selected for both stitchings.

If you can upload the result to Gigapan.com and provide a screenshot of the Choose Images screen, I’m sure someone can help. Without a look at the results, any feedback or suggestions would be guesses.

Nobody to help ?
As additional information, if the same images (in Jpeg instead of Tiff) are processed the same way with the same parameters the result is quite good…

Topic: General Gigapanning / Strange stitching result...

Hi,
I’m quite new here with a Gigapan Epic Pro…
Just learning how to use this “beast” in order to process my new panos.
I am surprised with my first trials (4columns and 3rows), the final image comes out spherical with no recognizable element of what I have on the original pics !
What did I miss or did faulty ?
I have Vers. 2.1.0161 and Stitch.Efx is in trial period !!!), I do not understand very well why I only have a “trial” for the “Stitch.Efx” just after I spent 1k€ for this equipment !!!
Please can somebody help me in understanding how to get a “normal” pano from this software ?
Thanks a lot in advance, Pol

Topic: General Gigapanning / 500 Internal server error

Hi Peter,

Seems they have fixed this, the links now go to the Gallery page instead of the Gigapan page, which seems odd, but works. Same fix seems to be related to another 500 server from Gigapan Thumbnails reported in the forums.

Angelko,

Thanks! Works much better now. Curiously, the thumbnail images from my 2 galleries disappeared. I uploaded new ones, so all is good.

Topic: Gigapan Mechanism / EPIC Pro Camera Mount Vice/Clamp and Foot

Last monday i did get a EPIC Pro Camera Mount Vice/Clamp and Foot.
But it is not possible to use it with a Canon EOS 1D MkIII and Canon EF 100-400mm. It is not possible to get the camera in landscape position! The Camera grip will bump to the tightening knob.
Does any one have a solution?
The Canon EF100-400mm Lens i use for 99,9% when i make panorama’s. But it will be the same with amy EF 70-200MM Lens.

Angelko,

Will this fix be deployed soon? I keep getting complaints from people that they are having problems with the links in my Galapagos galleries. I’m trying to show how GigaPan is a useful technique for environmental monitoring in Galapagos.

Thanks!
