Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

The Fusion shoots RAW images.. sure. Fusion Studio doesn't see them - and on the Mac they dont show in Finder - you can ONLY get them by pulling out the cards into a reader. 

 

So, you have your GPR RAW files. Now what? I open them in Photoshop or Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw.. then what?

 

How do we stitch them? Try Fusion Studio. Nope. That doesn't work.

 

So.. make some adjustments and save them as JPEGS THEN bring into Studio to stitch. Nope. That doesn't work either. 

 

So.. can someone tell me what the heck I can do with the RAW files?

 

In my stupidity I assumed the studio app would stitch the GPR files to one GPR or DNG file, then we'd be able to edit it in whatever app we like. GoPro clearly have either not thought of this - or we're Beta testers. 

I really need this answering or the camera is useless to me.

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

Are you trying to stitch files after you edit them?  If so, I'd be interested in knowing how to do that as well.  If not, you should be able to copy the raw files to a folder, choose add media in Fusion Studio, browse to the folder, and stitch them from there.

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

Ideally - you'd stitch them as RAW files. Then edit them - otherwise it's going to be very hard to get the colours to match etc. 

Either way Fusion Studio will NOT take the GPR files and nor will it take exported JPEG files that have been messed with in Pshop/Lightroom etc. 

 

The only option is to wait!

 

Apparently GoPro are 'aware' of this issue ..

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

Nothing to give but a  "me too" ... Opened the GPRs in the RAW-Converter - konverted them to TIF (or JPG), threw them into Autopano Pro, but the stitching was weird. - So I wonder about this collaboration between Kolor and GoPro and then the latest version of Autopano doesn't recognize the Fusion GPR-Files .... YES, we need a method, the single RAWs will be merged to one single GPR or DNG. If Fusion Studio is able to do the stiitching with jpgs it should not be a problem to do this with RAW-files.

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

I called GoPro and all they tell me was that they are 'aware' of this issue - however it's begining to look like a glaring omission to me. 

 

If they want this for Pro users - the features need to match. We dont all work off our iphone screens.

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

Very disappointed as I bought the fusion because it is supposed to do RAW images. After testing indoors and out the basic images at 18mp are not as good as my Theta S. I am now testing protune but results are very mixed and grainy

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

An update was released yesterday which addressed some issues with importing media, especially when coming directly from the camera. I would suggest that everyone goes back to the Fusion page on gopro.com, download and install this update. I can confirm that I just imported 3 RAW images into Fusion Studio with no problem whatsoever.

Re: Stitching Fusion RAW image files - HOW?

Yes, you can stitch it to a tif-format (as in previous versions before), but the goal is to get a RAW-360 as output. For me it would be OK if studio could be feeded manually with developed RAWs (or generated tifs) just for the stitching process. But any - and I mean ANY - changes to the original pics (for example: if you load a gopro .jpg in Photoshop and save it instantly) have the result Fusion studio will not recognize these pics as gopro-footage anymore.
