Usually (as a beginner) one pays far too much attention to the NPP
and less or none to other causes of stitching errors. The NPP plays a
role *only* if there are subjects at different distances in the
overlap region, and they probably are evident only if the distance
between near and far subjects is relatively large.
The usual causes of stitching errors are:
- not allowed to optimze all necessary parameters for a task.
- wrongly or not calibrated lens
- too few control points for the amount of parameters to optimize
- sideways or up-down displacement of the rotation axis.
