Can I pick more experienced brains here - I'm having problems with stitching and LCC:
I thought when an LCC is applied, the color shift and light fall-off in panels of, e.g. a simple 2 way stitch will even out any color imbalances, but it doesn't 100% fix it, and I'm still having to go into C1's Color balance and visually fine-tune each section so they are closer at the point where the images will meet. Is this how it is, or am I missing a trick?
My workflow: make an LCC for each shot as its taken, same aperture, process it as an LCC in C1, (tried both Technical Wide Angle setting on and off) and then apply it to its relevant shot. It sure helps get you in the ballpark, but its not a home run - the left and right half are still slightly different, and need a bit of careful color tweaking to come closer. I do color balance the LCCs to neutral grey in the middle - should I be doing it at the overlap/common edge, or is this immaterial?
