If I take zenith/nadir, which I only do if there's a lot of detail on the ground or
foliage above, I usually just put them into the project along with the rest. Sometimes I
need to give them individual shift parameters, which seems to help if it doesn't stitch
right away. Sometimes I even have to stitch the 4 around first, uncheck all settings for
them (as well as lens settings) and then sitch only nadir/zenith. It also helps to move
them to the top of the list, so that they get behind the others when blended. Sometimes
it's ncessary to output as blended + layers, and sometimes there no way around doing som
ehand editing afterwards.
