  1. It is becoming quite important as CR3 and C-RAW were released on 26 February this year and we still haven't seen support on Windows. I know that we can use either TIFFs generated from DPP or DNGs generated by Adobe DNG converter but it is a tedious process with TIFF images, although good quality, take a while to produce and the DNG processing seems to flatten the shadows and also create a 6012 x 4008 image adding in the camera cropped pixels. Also hoping it will happen soon ...
  2. It seems that support for the Canon CR3 format is a long time coming as the first camera with native CR3 images was the EOS M50 and was released on 26 February ... As it is now September is there any likelihood we will see native RAW support for CR3 images soon? This is the new Canon format and will be in all new cameras.

    slow swicth to tone mapping persona

    I'm wondering if it could be the NVIDIA Drivers because I have a GTX 1050/4GB and it switches to the Tone Mapping Persona in 10 , sorry 20 seconds with a 6000 x 4000 px image. The Driver version I use is 399.07 (latest) and the PC has a i7 CPU with 16GB RAM and SSD's.
  4. I had a look at what you suggested but there is 76% overlap between 82/83/84 that rectifies the 11.5 pixel misalignment because of the horizon curve as can be seen in Alignment.jpg. Using Hugin I can get the misalignment down to about 3 pixels as you can see in Alignment Best.jpg. It seems as though Koler Autopano, CS6 and Hugin can handle the cylindrical alignment easily. Hopefully it will help to get AP to handle various difficult scenarios.
  5. I'm not sure that the 1 & 4 images are that similar as the 1 image has a shore background, anyway it is a opportunity for AP to improve as even Hugin, one of the better Panorama apps, does it easily. FootNote: Products that have AutoStitch (like AutoPano) stich it OK … I wonder if Serif PanoramaPlus will work?
  6. Hi, I have a set of images that should stitch to this panorama (CS6 Result) but it doesn't seem to pick up the last image as you can see in the screen shot of the Beta process. I am not sure if it is because of the contrast and/or small differences in the last two images as their are pylons sticking out of the water but they are against the water backdrop below the horizon. I have also attached a ZIP of the images for you to see. This happens both in the current Production & Beta. Regards, Don Pano_x_4.zip
  7. OK Chris, can understand if you say it is by design ...
  8. Personally I think it's a bug that's why I posted here ... but thanks for your input.
  9. Cropping in the Develop Persona is un-intuitive as, unlike the other Personas, there is no apply button so you need to press enter to apply the Crop ... but, to edit the Crop you first need to select another tool from the toolbar to get out of the Crop tool and select the Crop tool again. Is it possible to have this raised as a Feature Request in order to have the same behaviour across Personas?
  10. Along with basic selections in the Develop Assistant you can create your own presets from the setting you have applied ...

    Windows version very slow

    For me it is 8 secs for CR2 (50 megapixel) and 12 secs for RAF (16 megapixel)
  12. Hi Chris, This time I decided to use the NVIDIA, Tone Map with the Natural preset and adjust the black point, brightness and exposure and selected APPLY ... and got this where, for some reason the opacity was affected during the return to the Pixel Persona:
  13. I guess the biggest problem with warp is that it takes 7 minutes to get to the Tone Mapping from starting the HDR (my PC isn't slow either) and then if you press Cancel it goes through the process of 'Not Responding' for a while ... but ... it does not crash ... ?
  14. Yes using the latest which is 391.01
  15. It seems to be OK with the HD630 but then when I started up again after changing back to the NVIDIA and selected the files for the HDR merge i received this error displayed on the screenshot attahced. Then the last time the Cancel (from Tone Map) and New from Clipboard with the NVIDIA 1050 worked fine ... ??
