The Nikon has different resolution modes.  I was using FULL  Normal which produces a 2048  x 1536 pixel dimensioned 72 ppi image  in Normal jpeg compression.  This is typical for normal content used on our website. 

[printing is another topic not considered but here I would probably use 2048 x 1536 FULL FINE which I think creates a 300ppi image or maybe thats FULL Hi]

Anyway..  you may see the results of using 712 for x, y and radius at our R&D page:

The other day you did find a couple small stitch errors in this one.. I would consider it almost reasonable work.

I don't crop my raw images, I used to for Panotools.

To get back to the original thread, I've just done some 3FE which have worked out fine and required no touching up of seams, mismatch factors 0.47 - 0.56. The same images taken with 2FE had around 0.04mismatch and would require some touching up of seams. Hopefully I'll post one of these 2fe v 3fe images on the web when I get time.

I agree this topic is a bit of a puzzel.  So I asked Seaman what the Mismatch Factor really means. I trust this helps us all understand the issue.

Here is his reply:

Dear Dave,

Mismatch factor is used to evaluate on what extent the images are stitched together. The smaller the mismatch factor value, the better. It is nothing to do with color and brightness blending. Generally the value for stitching 3 fisheye images will be higher than stitching 2 images since there are more stitching lines in stitching 3 fisheye images.

Best regards,Easypano Seaman

Thanks for sharing Dave. I guess I was right, my mismatch factor was smaller than yours b/c I was doing 2 images.

Seaman,

Can you give us a step-to-step breakdown on how we go about getting the best stitching results? From tripod and camera set up to stiching them with PW3.0

Thanks in advanced.
