I often use an 8mm fisheye lens for landscape photos, using distortion correction in post to remove the distortion and thus avoid having to use panorama software to stitch together multiple photos. As a general rule this works well for me. Unfortunately L4 can not automatically correct this distortion and when I use the manual adjustments I end up with an image that lacks much of the information on both sides and is still distorted.
My backup choice has been to use the PTLens plugin which does a very good job of fixing this issue but when I attempt to call the PTLens plugin from L4 all I get is a white image in L4. PTLens never seems to actually start and the image in L4 goes from the fisheye image directly to a completely blank image. I was wondering if anyone knew of any other plugin that does fisheye distortion correction. Perhaps I can use that instead of PTLens.
I will report this issue to Skylum but I already have 2 open issues and want to wait until at least one of them is closed before I open another one.
Here is an image corrected using PTLens (called as a plugin from Photoshop).
Here is the image corrected by L4:
Here is L4 after a call to the PTLens plugin. PTLens never actually started
