Query about the Mavic Air and the panorams and in particular the 360 ones.

At the moment, I'm getting the Air to save all images as RAW and JPG but it appears that the Air only uses the JPGs to create the panos. I say this, as the quality I get back from SkyPixel is pretty poor when you zoom in and scroll around. Or is that a SkyPixel issue whereby they are compressing everything?

So, anyway, I guess I'm asking, is there an easy way for me to recreate the panos using the RAW files so that I have a higher initial resolution? Or is there a setting I've missed somewhere that allows me to save / create them in RAW initially?

There should be a folder on your SD when you plug it into your PC called PANORAMA that will have folders for each Pano you took in raw form.

Thanks @SirPasta117 - I have the RAW files but the question I asked was, is there an easy way for me to re-create the panos using those?

Thanks - I have seen that video before and in fact a number of times and it doesn't help in my situation. All it does is tell me where to go in the App to take the panos initially.

What I was asking is how can I recreate the JPG pano that is created by default using the RAW files I have? My phone is running Android 7

Yes of course. If you have the RAW you need a PC software, to stitch them together.

My workflow is:

Take panorama with drone, while saving the unstitched pictures as RAW.
Edit the RAWs in Lightroom and either
- merge them together in Lightroom as a Panorama
or
- save the edited RAWs as JPG and stitch them together in Windows ICE, whichever of the two works best

My workflow is:

Ahh ha - so yes, it can be done and thanks.

I have also found a video that shows an over-complicated variant of another workflow and in it they are constantly in and out of Bridge, camera RAW, LR and Photoshop doing multiple saves... when I'm thinking:

- open and edit images in Camera RAW (or LR)
- create pano in Bridge and save it as a RAW
- open RAW in Photoshop, do whatever you need
- create 3D, save, etc and one 360 post in FB later.

This workflow suits whether I use my Mac or PC but will take a look at ICE - thanks again.

Any raw edits will need to be consistent across the images to avoid blending issues

PTGUI supports HDR stitching, so you could take each RAW create a +1 and -1 image and then stitch them to give you a better dynamic range.

e.g. take x images,
create -1 under exposed images,
create +1 over exposed images,
create HDR pano with 3x images
tone
export tiff
edit in LR/PS

I guess that's another option - thanks
