Hi Kap Friends,
I know stitching software has been discussed several times, so if I'm boring you: feel free to ignore me.
I really want make good KAP panos. My chalenge is handling the small jumps caused by deplacement of the camera...
Personal experience and opinions: I've played quite a bit with Hugin (good at projections and alignment, but not really great at smart merging) and Photoshop CS5 (Very smart merging, but poor projection control).
I'm hoping to get better results with Panotools Giga or PTGui Pro. I chose these two because they are able to optimize for small differences in camera viewpoint (PTGui (not Pto) and Panotools (not Giga) are not). I've downloaded both trial versions and I'm not able to decide.
Here comes my humble request: has any of you experience with recent versions of both softwares? I'd really appreciate to hear your opinions in order make a good decision...
Any other tips from experienced panoramists is very welcome too! So are experiences relative to the CS5 stitcher.
