Fixed a bug that caused files such as ‘panorama.psd.psd.psd’ to be saved instead. This version will fix any problems you had with PTGui when large images were being saved.
Ptgui Pro 10
You can download PTGui 10 to test the new features. The version history contains a complete list of changes and new features. Check out our video tutorials to learn how to properly take panorama images and how to stitch them using PTGui.
They can process data very quickly if they are programmed correctly. However, the software must be rewritten in order to make that possible. Although the trial version is fully functional and there is no time limit, stitched panoramas will have visible watermarks. Interactive panorama viewers are available in PTGui for both local viewing on your computer and embedding into a webpage. PTGui allows you complete control over the final result. This means you can create stunning panoramas of even difficult scenes where other stitchers fall short.
The Panorama Editor has a mode called “Show Seams” that displays the location of seams in the blended panorama. Flash is not required for viewing panoramas in Safari browser, Chrome 9 browser, and the upcoming Firefox 4 browser. PowerPC macs will no longer be supported starting with this version. In the near future, OS X 10.4 support will also be discontinued. Paste Mask merges the pasted mask and the existing mask. Pasting was used to replace the original mask.
The 32-bit HDR source images are compatible with the control point generator. PTGui 10 often required the manual addition of control points. You can set the output size of your panorama to a specific percentage of the optimal size or a number of megapixels.
If an interpolator has negative coefficients, it can cause halos to appear in HDR source images. If this happens, a warning message will be displayed. The 64-bit version of PTGui Standard is now also available. All Windows versions can now be installed in one installer. This allows you to choose the 32- or 64-bit version automatically upon installation.
What’s new in Ptgui 10
PTGui 11 does not save thumbnails larger than the actual size but will load full-size images as needed. There is less distortion due to the improved default lens parameters for Ricoh Theta Z1 or Xiaomi Mi Sphere 360. Even though this is a significant improvement, you still need to create a template for the camera. Images will display properly on the screen if they are identified by color profiles in source images. PTGui has the ability to transform between color spaces. The Create Panorama tab allows you to select the desired target profile. Panoramas created from RAW images are now possible. If enabled, transparent areas of the panorama will be filled in with a smooth gradient that matches the surrounding areas.
The Feather slider can be used to control the PTGui Blender’s feathering. This is available in the Advanced section, Create Panorama. If the slider is set to sharp, it creates a hard transition between images. However, setting it to soft will produce a gradual transition. The previous versions behave as the middle of the slider. One version is available for Intel 32-64 bit support on all OS versions. PTGui now includes a standalone viewer that can be used to view equirectangular panoramics. You can launch the viewer via Tools – PTGui Viewer or through View / Preview in PTGui.
It changes the brightness of the Panorama Editor, but not the stitched panorama. This caused confusion. The Panorama Editor now has a new Post Processing sidebar that allows you to adjust the saturation, white balance, and toning curve. This is especially useful when working with RAW images. The Exposure/HDR tab now has the exposure adjustment sliders. When panoramas are taken automatically in exposure mode, the tone mapper can also be used. To compensate for exposure differences, PTGui can enable Exposure Compensation. This allows for a greater dynamic range in stitched panoramas. It basically results in HDR without bracketing.
This is currently supported for Ricoh Theta Z1 NNG files, Xiaomi Mi Sphere 360 images, and images from DJI drones. Automatically, Mi Sphere and Z1 images are leveled. When you start a new project, a set of images taken by DJI drones will automatically be aligned. You can disable this in Project Settings – Miscellaneous. When the project is loaded again, the preview exposure will be reset to 0.
Support was available for NVIDIA cards with more than 2GB. The metadata dialog box’s contents have been moved to the new Metadata tab of the main window. Fujifilm cameras can record a focal length up to 50mm in EXIF data if a manual lens was used.
This allows you to use a template from a non-HDR project as a basis for an HDR project using bracketed images. The PTGui standalone panorama viewer now uses Lanczos pixel Interpolation. This results in a sharper image. PTGui reads embedded thumbnails from images before opening a project.
