Set the initial or starting angle for any panorama. This will configure the starting angle for the first pano on iGUIDE load as well as any other panorama when it’s corresponding position is clicked on the iGUIDE. The icon for this feature represents a scan centre as viewed in Stitch when fully zoomed in. The darkened segment of the circle represents the initial angle. The default angle is still the same: the centre of the first fisheye image.
To use this feature in Stitch:
- Select a pano in Stitch by clicking on it’s folder in the project tree
- Click on the Set initial pano button (see Figure 2).
- Move your mouse from left to right to choose a suitable angle. The initial angle is represented by the visuals displayed within the white box.
- Click anywhere on the preview image or the laser measurement data when you have chosen your preferred view. A blue/orange box will remain to show you what you have selected.
You can use the box as a guide or use the scan centre.
Differently from previous Stitch versions, this option will not set/change initial panorama anymore. In order to do that, right click over the desired pano folder and select Set as initial pano. An orange dot will appear over the pano folder and the initial pano angle box will turn orange.

The option to set the initial pano on exporting is still available and its behaviour didn’t change in this release. It means that it will set both the initial pano angle and the initial pano.
