  • Autopano Video 2 Render Executable: The path to the Autopano Video 2 executable used for rendering. Enter alternative paths on separate lines. Note, during testing, we found the 64bit version of this application to be considerably more stable than the 32bit version on Windows OS.

FAQ

What versions of Autopano Video are supported?

Deadline supports version 2.6 and upwards.

Can I submit and process on different platforms?

Yes. We support path mapping of the input *.kava file and all input/output external file path references in the Autopano Video file are stored relative to the *.kava file, so no path mapping of the assets are required within the *.kava file. Ensure you configure Path Mapping in the Repository configuration.
