Re: Improvement tips

After reviewing fancy sharping programs, HDR combiners, shooting more photos, shooting multiple times at the same spot, various settings in Lightroom, and Photoshop, and much more, it became clear that I was trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Now, I'm glad I did that. I learned a great ...

Re: Improvement tips

My mistake - When I stated EasyPano and meant EasyHDR. EasyHDR appears to be a good program. I wouldn't knock anyone for using it. It has some nice settings for noise reduction and color. It's just with my workflow going from PTgui 16bit TIFF to Photoshop, it doesn't add anything. I purchased the On...

Re: Improvement tips

Moving out of the HDR mode and into single-shot manual mode, setting the ISO to 100 and bracket using the f-stop helps. Still noisy, and you have to guess at which F-stops to use. The app only will display certain levels. Above that, it displays the slowest f-stop it can. For inside work that is sti...

Re: Improvement tips

Hmmm lots of noise . Noise is usually created when ISO is not properly set. ISO 100 gives a soft image <-> ISO 3200 gives a lot of noise Higher the ISO more noise in the image That is correct. Unfortunately, neither can be set when you are in HDR mode for the One R. The only options are the number ...

Re: Improvement tips

I think there is a lot more difference between the One R and the One X than either the marketing or the specs imply. For one, there is no calibration in the app. I did what you said, with the 3 photos, 3 exposures, combining and putting into EasyHDR. The results just were not good. There is just too...

Re: is there a recommended browser for Pano2VR?

There are alot of new browsers that works so that leaves WHICH version of the browser works best with Pano2vr. Pano2vr uses openGL so look for browser version that are GREEN Boxes in this list of browsers https://caniuse.com/#search=opengl I don't think that is correct. It indicates that pano2Vr do...

Re: Improvement tips

@Branigan Can you post an example of your results? I would like to see what you are getting with your method. When you say 12 photos, are you taking 3 360 degree shots, each with 3 exposures? Merging each shot to get 3 HDR images, and then feeding all 12 into EasyHDR? The only calibration I am seein...

Re: is there a recommended browser for Pano2VR?

I have tried it in Edge, Chrome, and Firefox and didn't see any real difference.

Re: Improvement tips

I did some playing around with the suggestions. Reducing the field of view, switching to diagonal mode appears to help. I also tried 9 exposures covering a range of +/- 4. That made the noise go from terrible to simply bad. EasyHDR doesn't appear to do any better or worse than PTgui for creating HDR...

Re: Improvement tips

I think I am going to stick with using the canon. Using the PTgui batch sticker, it doesn't take much longer to stitch 4 HDR sets vs the 2 from the Insta360.

Re: Improvement tips

That appears to be the One X. They are both supposed to have resolutions of 6080 x 3040.

Re: Improvement tips

They were all taken with the same camera.

I was using the HDR mode +/- 0.6 with I think 3 images. So -0.6, 0.0 and +0.6.
In HDR there is not priority, F-stop or Aperture settings.

Which Insta360 One do you have?

Re: Improvement tips

I wish I could take credit for the skin. I purchased a template and then modified it. Changed the floor plan, some things with the icons, a little this and a little that. I also expected better quality from this camera. It produces a 3040 x 6080 DNG file and also a insp file. The insp file can only ...
