AW: [PanoToolsNG] Re: Panotools vs Autopano
I know a verly lot of useres in the German Panorama Community that uses Autopano very succesfully.
You have to consider your means: if movements etc are to be expected - there is no way than a fisheye with
4 shots ( - or even less). Autopano does not support theses lenses by now.
Multi-Rows result in sharper image but wind, people, animals - what else can pass by - are really hard if not sometimes impossible
Architecture etc. are no doubt.
I personally take a 8mm & a 10.5 - not as good as a 15mm but the results are very good and can be printed without any

There is a lot of overlap, and *roughly* they do the same thing. PTGui offers more control
over the fine-tuning of the matching points etc, and supports more lenses such as fisheye.
On the other hand, Autopano Pro has built-in HDR functions.

They both have demo versions, and the differences are often down to personal preference,
so your best bet is to download them both and see how you get on, not forgetting to come
back and ask more questions as needed! Autopano Pro has a slight edge for the beginner,
