First i would just like to say i was not calling you personally naive.I'm just saying when in the history of any computer software has it ever worked pefectly,
As you say this forum is excellent for help and information and indeed the contributers here have helped me greatly. including yourself. But also shows that the software can through up unexpected problems. I am just saying i personally think it is a good thing to be able to manually overide things.
If as you say 'Panoweaver 4.0 allows for manual control points to be set by the user when and if required' then in essance it has a manual tweak.problem solved
Thanks to this forum i have been able to get the nodal point spot on and 9 times out of 10 things stitch perfectly but there is that odd occasion when they dont for what ever reason and thats when this option is worth its wait in gold.
As you have said to Brian 'Panoweaver 4.0 does not allow for top to bottom stitching, only side to side' but in early versions of panoweaver this was possible as was disscussed in another thread on this forum about aerial pano. this would have been another nice option to bring back.
The more flexable the software the better for us end user. The more options it allows us to offer our clients, the more business we get.The more we invest in software,the more money they have for R&D.The better there software gets.....so completes the circle
Regards & Thanks
