felt like crying first time I used this
whoa, cool. i don’t have windows to try it, but that looks mighty promising judging by their gallery!
I am definitely trying this after my trip to Crater Lake.
Very cool, but I don’t think a demo version counts as freeware.
I think it’s a demo because they aren’t done yet. AFAIK, since I couldn’t find a full version or any mention of it on their site.
Autostitch is nice.
But nothing comes close to the power of Autopano-Sift, Panoramatools, Hugin and Enblend!
Plus this is available for windows, Linux and mac OSX!
At the bottom of the page there is a FAQ, where they mention that there is no commercial product yet.
It looks promising, I’ll also look into Hugin, try them out both!
What I’d need is a complete 360 degree, up and down as well, pano stitcher. The one bundled with my camera does a very good job at putting together one strip of images, but nothing more.
there’s a good one called ‘photofit feel’ but it only does color to a certain pixel limit, then it goes grayscale outside of the border unless you buy the full version.
This one has absolutely no limitations, and is stable. (It’s made by University of British Columbia…they are’nt doing it for the money.)
When I was researching for Panoramic tools, I found most of these apps, and decided to test out Hugin. I was completely lost as how to use it, so i just stuck with Photoshop’s Photomerge. Much easier.
You really should try and get to know Hugin. It is a LOT more powerful than photomerge / autostitch, it seems to be able to handly more akward stitching.
Granted, it is more difficult than “drop all images onto a gui and press Stitch!”, but you get a lot more control over the final image.
