I often create panoramas using Autopano and it has a feature to render an HDR panorama. The merged panorama should be exported in a format that can store the HDR image (like .HDR format). It is also possible to export it in other formats (I normally use TIFF), either the full panorama or the subframes (one for each exposure).
As HDR format cannot be imported in Aurora, I tried to:
- generate a single HDR file that I saved as 16 bit TIFF, but when I open it in Aurora it looks weird.
- generate a set of 3 sub-panoramas, one for each exposure, but this results in 3 files with different size, that Aurora won't accept.
I think it would be nice and useful to add the feature to import files in typical HDR format (like the aforementioned .HDR).
But the question is: how can I tone map with Aurora the panoramas I photographed? What is the recommended procedure?
