I was trying to stitch 8 images and got the following picture:

I.e., AutoPano decided picutres are not connected.

How do I force AutoPano to connect them?


I have found the following setting:

After which I got the following picture:

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 work with to line up and connect the images.

Kolar has a page of common stitching errors and how to fix them. Like most panorama stitching programs, you can manually position the problematic member image. Or, you can manually define control points, the points at which the images join.

  • So, how to manually move the second group of images, relative to first one? This is the question.

  • Start over with a new project would be my guess. I'm not an Autopano user--I use PTGui, so I can't give you steps.

  • How to do this in PTGui? I remember I had similar problems with it.

  • @Dims If you have a separate question, ask it as a separate question. but honestly, the Autostitch step-by-step how-tos are in the links in my answer, which is why I put them there.
