Photoshop: Support spherical 360° panorama

Lightroom outputs very strange results for 360° spherical panoramas.

When (!) it succeeds to generate a preview, it just looks like crap this:



It evens skips ons sixth of the images, in areas that are perfectly fine (no overlap issue).

This is what is to be expected with the exact same images:



Am I missing a setting or is there some bug?
Is there a way to change the center point of the projection?

Antoine,

I spoke to the Camera Raw team and got the word that we do not currently support the 360 degree panorama in our merge pipeline. I have converted this post to a feature request so that people can click the +1 button and gather votes.

AFAIK, Antoine, there isn't a way (in Lightroom) to reset the center point of a projection. 
Does Camera Raw also miss-stitch it?

You wouldn't be able to share a set of the errant images with me would you?

Thanks for your replay. I didn't try CR as it's not part of my workflow at all. I however suspect the same behavior as it's based on the same engine, right?

Here are the images, the first one is a pano stitched with another software.

Let me know if you've been able to download it.

Cheers!

I got the same results you did. I am forwarding to the ACR team for review. Thanks for the samples.

Looking at the original images, some of the clouds have hardly any fine detail to match on and would be a challenge for a completely non-tunable, automatic process like Adobe uses.  I use alternative software that can be manually guided to stitch difficult panoramas.

True, but that's life. But it even skipped areas on the ground, with plenty of details. With the correct sequence order of pictures and current technologies of automatic horizon correction and content aware fill, that shouldn't be a big issue. Especially knowing that other automatic stitching software manage to do it without any issue.

Are you sure that this is spherical panorama ?   Seems more like a cylindrical to me.

No, you see the "spherical" button is checked in the GUI
