Stitching Panoramas

Software for Stitching Panoramas- 360 Panorama Stitching Software

STITCHING PANORAMAS AUTOMATICALLY To begin stitching panoramas in Panavue Image Assembler you will need to create a stitching panoramas project and configure the project for your camera. This manual will walk you through the steps to create and configure your stitch project, as well as how to stitch your pictures together. It will be important to save your stitch project once you have created and configured it so that you don’t have to go through the configuration process again. It is a good idea to save your configured stitch project some place that you can easily find it like your computer’s desktop for example.
