I have been shooting panoramas for quite a few years with my Canon R5 on a stable tripod with a levelling head and ensuring the lens focal entrance pupil is centered over the center of the tripod and saving in CR3 format.
When I take the 9 CR3 files, load them in ON1 2023, develop and sync them, then open them in the Pano tool to stitch them together, it complains only 2 of the 9 could be stitched. However, if I save them as TIFF files and then stitch the TIFFs in ON1, it is fine.
I normally use PTGUI to stitch the CR3s and output a TIFF file as it is much quicker than ON1 in the execution. However, I cannot adjust that TIFF in ON1 to the same extent I can the CR3s (i.e. white balance in Kelvin, Camera Profile, etc), although I guess I could stitch the TIFFs in PTGUI and then use ON1 for further editing.
I would really like to have my pano workflow complete in ON1 but its inability to consistently stitch the RAW files is a nuisance. Suggestions?
