Exactly as the title says, what is your preferred photo stitching software for Macs?
Trying out Hugin at the moment, not having the best luck with it...

Bumping the thread. Would like to hear any and all input. Man I wish Aperture 3 had a plug in...

I just use CS5, but I am very careful to use a tripod and level the head so the pan is horizontal and I do not tip the camera.
If I can, I use the viewfinder grid lines to get a constant overlap. I also rotate about the lens node and avoid lens with significant distortion.

It is all in taking the pano and not expecting software to fix your mistakes.

I like results from my 28 or 35 shift lenses best. Three shots, full left, center , and full right, keeping the lens centered in all. A micro photo focusing rail is used sideways to keep the lens centered. This procedure keeps building lines straight and natural and you do not get a cigar shape from parallel horizontal lines like you get from rotation or a swing lens camera.

A 28 used this way covers 90 deg horizontally, about the same as a 15 mm lens
