To use Enblend, choose 'Blend using: Enblend plugin' on the Create Panorama tab in PTGui.
Smartblend is also a blending application, similar to Enblend and the PTGui Blender.
But Smartblend is different in that it tries to place the seams such that they are least noticeable.
This gives better results for panoramas suffering from parallax problems.
Smartblend is written by Michael Norel and can be downloaded

and the accompanying .dll files into a folder of your choice on your computer.

box and point it to the smartblend.exe executable.

All plugins are written by third party developers, therefore we cannot provide any support.
If you experience any problems we can only recommend to use the functionality built into PTGui instead.
