I'm just getting started with PF, and wanted to find out how to fill-in the empty, white spaces that get generated around the top and bottom edges. For example, I have some white space in the sky of one of my panoramas. It's very easy to fill this in using a Clone tool in image editing software if I'm just outputing to a still image, but not sure how to do this with a QuickTime movie.
Thanks in advance for the help.

If you use Manual or Semi-automatic stitching (in V4), the automatic cropping should be perfect, removing all white space from the top and bottom.
If you use Fully automatic stitching, the automatic cropping assumes that the pictures are in a straight line, as they would be if you used a tripod. If some pictures have been shifted up or down to achieve proper alignment, the automatic cropping may leave some white areas.
If the default crop leaves white areas, you can manually adjust the crop rectangle that the Wizard created.
To adjust the crop rectangle, exit the Wizard and right-click the "cropped" thumbnail. Select the "Show source" command from the context menu. Move the mouse over the top or bottom edge of the crop rectangle and click-and-drag it up or down. When you are satisfied with the crop rectangle, click the Approve button.
See Using the cropping rectangle for more information on how you can edit the cropping rectangle.
