Hello @iomega15, and welcome to the forum!
Sorry that this post has been unanswered for a while. I just had a look at the tif files you linked, and it seems that when opened with Bio-Formats (which is what the stitching plugin uses internally as well), the stack opens as a 1-slice, 147-frames stack, so it is seen as a 2D time-lapse movie. This explains why you wouldn’t be able to apply a 3D translation model to the image.
Can you try re-saving your image with Plugins > Bio-Formats > Bio-Formats Exporter after correcting the dimensions in Image > Properties…?
Let us know if that helps solving your issue.
What software did you use to write those files? I wonder if the dimension metadata got lost at some point after acquisition during your pre-processing.
