[font color=\'#000000\']Nowadays when I try posting on this site, I usually get excommunicated (banned from accessing the site). I'm beginning to feel like a dissident Chinese person in China.
I have to say, I'm in complete agreement with Didger on this stitching issue. In general, it's a big time-waster, suitable mainly for hobbyists and people with time to burn.
However, I think it's probably true that PC users have more options than Mac users with regard to stitching programs.
As a PC owner, I recommend Panavue's Image Assembler. It's got its limitations, which are almost exclusively related to perspective control/adjustment of close subject matter. It can't handle that. For such scenes I use my Tilt & shift lenses.
But it can handle reasonably distant scenes with great aplomb and efficiency. My advice is, know your program; what it can handle easily and efficiently; what it can handle with difficulty and great 'stuffing around' and what it can't handle at all.
Geez! Didger, I hope my agreeing with you has not jeopardized you're future on this site. Maybe you now need to denounce me
