You're using the wrong tool to get what you want. The distortion settings in Lightroom are assuming you're using a physical lens, not a virtual one, like you do when shooting a panorama. You've basically blown past the limits of that that setting is meant to do. What you need is a more sophisticated panorama stitching program that allows for different ...


Photoshop's Photomerge is relatively limited as panorama stitching packages go. And most auto stitching programs require enough overlap and significant enough features to be able to match the images together. Shots where there may not be enough distinguishing detail in the overlap areas to anchor accurately can be problematic. In your scene, the ocean and ...


I am not sure if you can rescue the panorama above in Photoshop; manual work is problematic since Photoshop transforms the images to fit a chosen "layout". (An aside - it seems your horizon is not level, and normally this is crucial for these types of panos; your stand and head must be properly leveled. If you try to correct this in Photoshop the height of ...


Is there a way to take a same set of images for a panaroma twice Yes. Simply do it a second time. You can be more consistent by using reference markings. For the tripod, that could be the join of tiles on the floor for example, a natural landmark like big stone that your tripod legs are touching, etc. You could also try marking the position the legs ...


Ouch. I would say the main purpose of a motorized head is to have accurate turns and angles. This is a partial answer. But I hope it helps. My approach would be typing (or modifying) the numeric values of the pan of the images. On advanced view on Photos tab, double click on an image and edit the values. I would start with a Pre-template, with only the ...


You have to cover the top and bottom of the sphere in your panorama. With this specific panorama, you can't do anything about the black voids, because you started with a 2.5:1 360 cylindrical panorama. So you're missing the top and bottom of the sphere, which it's filling in with black. To make an equirectangular (and cube faces/QTVR Cubic) you need to ...


The Autopano FAQ mentions a similar case and the solution: in your case, it should be enough to tick the option force every image to be in one panorama.


Your first mistake was shooting without enough overlap. The program needs distinct features it can match between the two frames. In the case of the roof: you don't have the point of the roof in both images. Ideally, you should be overlapping frames by about ⅓ of the frame. The less overlap you have, the less information a stitching program has to ...
