Automatic detection of focal length
sometimes produces strange results
This problem occurs sometimes when you select Automatically detect
focal length with fully automatic stitching. The stitched images
are severely warped. Examining the focal length with the Camera
properties dialog box or by rerunning the Wizard shows a very
small value for focal length (for example, 1mm, 5mm, etc.).
This problem apparently occurs because the focal length detection is
affected by the results of prior Wizard stitches.
If you encounter this error, you may be
able to work around it by following this procedure.
- If you have exited the Wizard, use the Restart the Wizard
command to restart the Wizard on the bad panorama at the Describe
your camera Wizard step. If you are still in the Wizard, use
the Back button to return to the Describe
your camera Wizard step
- Remove the checkmark from the
Automatically detect focal length checkbox.
- Enter 999 for the focal length.
- Select the Automatically
detect focal length checkbox.
- Advance through the Wizard to restitch your panorama.
Corrected in V4.1. Automatic focal length detection is no longer affected by the results of prior Wizard stitches.
