Re: [PanoToolsNG] Re: PTGui Speedtest for Fisheye Images
- Thanks to all for sending me so many results on- and offlist! This is a
good base for me to estimate a better "standard" and provide some basic
tipps based on the result. I'll put something online in a few days.
It's a little surprise for me that - despite the clever memory
management of PTGui - 8GB are still not enough to stay mostly in
memory. Everyone who is near or above 1 hour for the stitch doesn't
have necessarily a slow machine but did hit the memory ceiling and
started swapping to disk.
Regarding the workflow: For panoramas that have very distinguishable
areas of different brightness (like the sample panorma with the door
opening in the background) - for those who don't feel very compfort with
HDR tone mapping, the layer painting method is a good alternative.
There as a very old tutorial which would urgently need a brush up, but
the method is still valid:
