I think this is a very important feature to have in a photo stitching program. I've searched other programs and most of them do not have this feature. It would be a very big plus if Panorama Factory has this feature. Have you ever thought about it or plan to add it?

I agree that this would be a great feature for The Panorama Factory. As a matter of fact, it is on the short list for the V4.0 release!
Unfortunately, I do not have a projected release date for V4.0. There will be at least one or two more update releases (V3.3, V3.4) before V4.0 can be released.

John, how about stitching tilted images? Is it planned for v4? Layers and tilting are two first positions on my short PF wish list :-)

Tilted images and multi-row stitching would require a major overhaul of the stitching engine. These features are probably farther in the future than V4, sorry.

I am reassured to know that "export to photoshop with layers" and "multi-row stitching" are at least a twinkle in the PF eye, and it might persuade me to invest in (i.e. buy!) PF now with the prospect of these features later.
I had a quick go with the trial version and was very very impressed with the results, with no manual intervention whatsoever, where other stitching programs gave inferior results even with significant time and manual input.
However, there was evidence of some ghosting, which perhaps could have been improved with some manual work in PF (when I get the chance to investigate this), but which could also have been easily sorted out with Photoshop layers and the powerful editing tools available there. So I'm definitely interested in having this feature in PF.
And I'm also very interested in using multi-line stitching capabilities, and perhaps would be tempted away from PF for the moment because it cannot do that (at least, not easily -- I have seen the workaround posted in the FAQ).
But if I know these features are at least possibilities in the future, perhaps I will settle on PF now.

What is the recommended workflow starting with raw images in photoshop using Panorama Factory to stitch the images and modifying them in photoshop after stitching?

Here's one sequence you might follow to start with raw images and modify the stitched image in Photoshop.
NOTE: If you wish to convert the final image to a VR format (e.g. QuickTime, IVR or PTViewer), you should follow the instructions given on the web page How to modify the final image in photoshop when you reach step 3 given above.
- Convert the raw images.
Note: You must start by converting the images to one of the image formats that The Panorama Factory accepts (it does not currently accept raw images).
- You may be able to perform this conversion in Photoshop or you may need to use a special program supplied with your digital camera (e.g. Canon's Raw Image Converter.
- We recommend using a lossless format such as BMP, TIFF or PNG.
- You may save your images with 24 bits per pixel (8 bits per channel) or 48 bits per pixel (16 bits per channel). The Panorama Factory accepts both formats.
- Save each image in a different file, numbering the images from left to right, e.g. image_1.tiff, image_2.tiff, ....
- Run The Panorama Factory to stitch the images.
- You may stitch with either the Wizard or the Classic Interface.
- Save the final image using the Save current image as.... command.
- We recommend you save the image in the same format as you chose in step 1.
- If you are using 48 bits per pixel (16 bits per channel), be sure to select Save 48-bit pixels (16 bits per channel) on the TIFF settings dialog box or the PNG settings dialog box.
- Open the final image in Photoshop for post processing.

The ability to export to photoshop with layers would be great!
Awaiting release 4.0 eagerly.
