I am saving the Pano Pics as RAW files and working them in Lightroom.  Can anyone suggest a good program to stitch those files together to form the Pano in the format and aspect ratio that DJI requires for the 360 effect?

Thanks

Microsoft ICE is the best one I could find. Auto Pano giga did not work for me. After the stitching you have to make it a 2:1 size and add a sky

Just uploaded to Skypixel.

Used ICE to stitch, but at first Skypixel would not accept it because it wasn't a 2 to 1 ratio and was more then a  50mb file.

I edited in GIMP to get the ratio and size.

Is there a way to change the ratio in ICE..... anyone?

Answered my own question about resizing in ICE. First time I tried changing ratio size I must of hit something by mistake. Just tried it and it and it resized the Pano for me.

Try as I might, I could not make the Pano the required 2:1 ratio using ICE.  I am using the pictures saved by the Mavic Air, but it is a bigger ratio in ICE.  Any suggestions on how to get the 2:1 ratio in ICE?

I ended up using GIMP 2 (free download)

Just dragged and dropped a 360 Pano into it. Clicked on image and resized it to 9000 to 4500 pix.
The ratio is now 2 to 1

Just FYI, ms-ice doesn't support dng file format, so you will either have to convert them or use the  .jpg files.

Thanks you for the input. I knew that ICE wanted JPeg.  I adjusted the DNG files in Adobe Lightroom and then exported them as JPegs.  ICE stitches it just fine, but it is not in the 2:1 ratio that Pano 360 requires.

I can't quite understand how the Pano picture from DJI capture fits them all in the 2:1 ratio and ICE cannot.  I can crop it in ICE but to do that I have to cut out some of the picture making it NOT a continuous scene.

Thank you again for your response.  I will keep at it.

Just add the missing top part in the export from ICE. I use photoshop and then fill the top by strechting the top row of pixels. Dont resize the image, you will disform it. Resize the canvas instead.

So i've been struggling with this a little bit too. When the Mavic Air does the stitching, i notice that in some places it doesn't quite line up, like there's a little bit of double-vision ghosting going on. Microsoft ICE is a lot better, but doesn't seem to let you resize to 2:1. I spent a fair bit of time messing with GIMP 2 yesterday, trying to figure out how to make it 2:1 and then paint in the extra sky - the 2:1 thing was fine (changing canvas size to 8000 x 4000 and setting the offset so that the additional "white space" was at the top), but it seems my painting skills were lacking; just could not get it looking natural, ended up with obvious solid lines between different shades of blue in the sky.


Ended up using Paint 3D in Windows 10 to select a small sliver of sky, and then stretching it up to the top of the 'canvas'. Below is the end result. Looks quite good, but i'm not sure it will work particularly well on cloudy days where there's lots going on up there. Any other better suggestions as to how "painting in the sky" is done?

That looks good.  Thanks everyone. I will try to stretch the sky.

Used Lightroom to process the DNG Files, ICE to stitch the Jpegs and Phototshop to get the 2:1, add sky and smudge the sky.  Thanks for the help
