Re: Correcting Light Falloff in C1 Panorama Stitching

I made some images on my Fuji GFX100S + GF 80 F/1.7 this morning, and stitched them together as a panorama in C1. It didn't turn out too well.

I shot wide-open (f/1.7), and the light falloff / vignetting was enough to ruin the panorama:

C1 light falloff = 0

I did some further research, and apparently C1 doesn't correct for vignetting in the lens profile. But it does allow to compensate for light falloff in its lens correction tool. I applied up to the maximum value to each image before stitching, but found that it didn't completely fix the problem:

C1 light falloff = 120

I think ultimately, the solution is to not shoot panoramas wide open. But here we are. I could probably clean up the second panorama in photoshop, but that's kind of a pain. Any other suggestions/ideas?
