Stitching raw files from Z1

Hi all,

I was unaware when purchasing my Theta Z1 that it was basically tied to a lightroom subscription to edit and stitching raw files, I refuse to use lightroom or any adobe subscription software but do still use my standalone light room 6.xx.

My question is, is there a stand-alone version of theta stitcher for the pc? If not why not?


Clever people from the community figured out how to use the standalone stitcher from a Mac and Windows.


Scroll down for the Windows tip.

Got it with adding

to the top of the ini file

Hi, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it to work. Is there another solution that you could pass on?


You can use a program called ptgui this does stitching and realignment also

There’s additional information on PTGui here:

If you don’t want to use Lightroom, you can use GIMP and darktable with PTGui.

PTGui is commercial software, but you can test it with the trial. The trial has watermarks, but it is good enough to test it.
