Sorry for the 911, what do you guys use for stitching? I heard of Hugin recently, free software, anyone use it?

Some where in Natal I think, can't remember . 180 so it must be about 7-8 photos.


Overlooking Robertson valley, Van Loveren in the left of the pic. Again 180 so it must be about 7-8 photos.


On a farm in the Swellendam district. Again 180 so it must be about 7-8 photos.


Natal, Inanda dam from the mountain directly north.  Again 180 so it must be about 7-8 photos.


MMC 2008 360 inside the worlds biggest tent.   Lots of photos with a 7MP mik&druk, must be about 16.


I mostly use PS3 with some manual fine tuning.

Some great ones there Lourens!!

I love the Inanda Dam shot!

With the MMC one, how do you get it to blend so nicely when the people in the shots had to be moving around ???

Some manual work was needed because the software made a mess.  It took some work but it came out nicely in the end.

Some I took on the Otter trail last year - using Autostitch to stitch them

These are obviously beofre I cropped them - gives you an idea of how many images were used.  Autostitch needs about a 30% overlap to work nicely though.

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.
