Hi Jason, following your workflow fro a 14 cam stereo rig I have setup, everythings working great frame by frame, but when I try to generate a new batch project in batch builder, instead of picking up each panorama ie cams 1-14 per frame. i'm getting panoramas of each individual camera, ie cam1_6543.jpg, cam2_6543.jpg...... up to 14, instead of cam1_6543.jpg + cam2_6543.jpg & so on... have you came across this problem? looks like a solution would be to put each panaorama in a separate folder? but want to get your opinion? Cheers & thanks for a fantastic site!

Hey Andrew! Sounds like the issue is with the file naming for your frames. You should download this bulk rename utility: http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Download.php Basically, your frames are currently Cam1_0001 ... Cam1_0999, through Cam14_001 ... Cam2_0999, correct? They need to be in the format Frame0001_01 ... Frame0001_14, through Frame_0999_01 ... Frame0999_14. In other words, the last number in your file name should be the CAMERA number, not the FRAME number. This way, in alphabetical order, your images will be grouped in sets of 14 per each frame of the video. Hope that makes sense! Sorry for the slow-as-hell reply! Cheers, Jason
