Photo Merge feature in LrC gives distorted results even when its shot on a Tilt Shift lens.

Am using the Apple Mac Studio - Monterey 12.3.1 version

Adobe needs to fix this on Priority & war footing.

Never had any issues so far, even with regular lens shots.

Which version of LrC exactly?

Camera type? RAW?

How much do you overlap?

Can you share a sample?

.. needs to fix this ... does not help. You need to elaborate much more.

Which projection did you use? If you created shifted images, then merge them using perspective, not one of the other two options.

I would expect a difficult pano merge especially when a tilt-shift lens has been used. Such shots will not analyse and therefore process conventionally so far as their perspective (the lens axis / subject convergence centre being moved, in effect, off-centre within the captured frame).

 

Do you get results you like better, from completely standard photos (shot nodally coincident if possible)?

 

Also, can you please show an example: what particular form of "distorted results" are you noticing, and what would you want to see instead?

 

Tilt-shift and also pano merging: all arguably a distortion, or (expressed more neutrally) involving "transforms" relative to a natural capture. And those "transforms" happen in pursuit of some goal: it would be helpful to understand what goal that is, for you. After all, some people find converging verticals 'disturbing' in a photo - while for other people, it is the outcome from keystoning correction / lens shift movement that they would experience as 'unnatural'.
