This doesn't have any "ends". The four images all overlap with their
two neighbours to give four overlap areas and there should be control
points assigned in all four of these areas. This will ensure that
the images can be aligned with each other by the optimizer.
When you generate the 360x180 equirectangular image, there will then
be two "ends" at the left and right hand edges. If the blender does
its job properly, these two edges should produce an invisible join
when butted together. Exactly where this invisible seam occurs in
the panorama can be changed before stitching by rotating the whole
composite panorama image in PTGui using the numerical transform tool
to adjust the yaw.
From what you say, it may be that you have overlaps between images 0-
1, 1-2, 2-3 but not 3-0. If there are no matching features between 3-
0 (and the area is not actually featureless) then you have presumably
not taken the shots at the right angles of yaw. Is this happening on
just this one set of images or on different panoramas?
