I'm pretty sure the raws are not perfect. But your raw converter removes
the hot pixels during conversion, and while displaying the preview.
PTGui's raw conversion is just basic and it doesn't remove hot pixels.
Indeed the solution is to convert your raw files to 16 bit tiff in a
good raw converter and stitch the tiffs.
