Decimate — Low-pass filtering during alignment and image resizing. Sorry, these times are not accumulated separately.
Align — Panoramic alignment – low resolution.
Final align — Panoramic alignment – high resolution.
Fine tune — Image fine tuning (de-ghosting).
Render — Drawing warped images into the panoramic image.
Render blend — Drawing overlap regions into the panoramic image.
Refine focal length — Automatic detection or refinement of the focal length value.
Refine barrel correction — Automatic detection or refinement of the barrel correction value.
Refine falloff correction — Automatic detection or refinement of the falloff correction value.
Enhance — Image enhancement.
Improve quality — Improve quality (Q+).
