Autiostitch has great results, but i wonder if anyone here has used any of the commercial versions autopano or the other one (forgot the name right now). I used to use panavue image assembler but have been having pretty good results with hugin. when the images are scatterred sometimes you need more control.

Autopano Pro is available for free trial and is much less resricted than Autostitch. For example, you can select different output projections and file formats (including layered PSD), and perform levelling and cropping operations. Itgives similar quality results to Autostitch but lacks the full versatility of Panorama Tools (with Hugin, PTGui etc). Being essentially an automatic stitcher, it still gets things wrong on occasion and it may not be easy to put things right. It's still early days and I'm surethere will be significant enhancements in the not too distant future.

Have you tried Panorama Factory or Panorama Maker?

Muso, I cannot agree with you. Unfortunately the Panorama Factory can't be considered to be the best or evena good program. I know what I am talking about for I used it for 2 years. I started with 3.0, then 3.5 and 4.0 versions. (and I have lots of panos at a Gallery of Panorama Factory site). Now I have Autopano Pro 1.3 CR3 and PTGui 6.0.1.



The PF is not good because –

1. It is only one row stitching program

2. It is RAM dependent, so we are limited with number of frames to be stitched. I managed to merge 68 images with PF and I was glad. With Autopano I easily stitches 125 images.

3. It deals very badly with moving people, vehicles, tree branches.

4. It has lots of ghosts

5. It stitches blue sky with rude bands,

6. The batching is out of question. It has so many restrictions!

7. It hasn't moved from 4.4 version for about a year now. So it is history

I tend to agree with you. I have been using both Panorama Factory and Panorama Maker and have come across many cases where the more versatile P-Factory just cannot do a satisfactory job anda more basic P-maker does a much better job.

I have used Canon Photostitch, PanoTools, Autopano and Panorama Maker 3.

The second is the best, but a long expense of time.
Currently use PM3 with 99,9% of my panos, and they come generally fine, although the prog has scarce control and limited images possibilities.
But for what I want to do (hardly more than 16 images) it's faster than PT.

I've used autopano pro, the full version, for some time.
it has more render options, easy interface. and gives nice full quality pictures.
