This is about two thirds of a 1900 shot panorama of Mount St. Helens and Spirit Lake that I shot last summer. Unfortunately, even with the new Stitch 1.0 and my 32-bit Windows XP machine maxed out on RAM, I still managed to crash the program with an "Out of RAM" error when trying to stitch the full panorama. Since I don't forsee being able to stitch the whole thing anytime soon I've decided to break it up into two GigaPans - this one of Mt. St. Helens and another to follow of Spirit Lake.

This GigaPan was shot early in the morning from the Windy Ridge viewpoint in the eastern portion of Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument.

    Nope. I haven't tried because I don't own any Autopano software. Do you think Photoshop could stitch the two halves together?

    Have you tried stitching your capture in several pieces with a certian number of redundant columns? You could use the Autopano Gigatiler to slice up each section and then put the tiles together omitting the redundant tiles. The current version of the Gigatiler can only tile images and cannot put them back together. Kolor plans on releasing the newer version that they used for retouching the Paris 26 gigapixel pano to the public. The new version would allow you to assemble your entire panorama despite Gigapan stitches memory limit due to being a 32 bit application.
