    I'm using the P2V+ for making pictures. I try to stitch them with Autopano Pro Giga.
    But I see mistakes in the panorama.
    Can anybody help with the settings of the images in Autopano Pro?
    Thanks!

    If you are using a Gopro camera it wont make any difference which stitching software you use. Due to the fisheye effect from the Gopro the stitching programs cannot accurately decipher the irregular pixels. If not using a Gopro try Microsoft ICE (free download)
    If you are using a Gopro, use a program like de-fisher first on your photos to mostly get rid of the fisheye effect and then try running them through your stitching program again.

    Cheers

    Yes... you must de-fish the images first.

    If you're using the DJI camera on your Plus and saving your images as RAW (new firmware option), you can use the new DJI lens profiles in Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop to automatically take the fisheye distortion out.

    I bet there's a lens profile for the GoPro, too, by now... I just don't know for sure since that's not what I use.

    But, yeah, until you take out the distortion, there ain't no way it's ever going to stitch together right.
