Редактирование надира сферической 3d панорамы Существуют два способа обработки надира сферической панорамы, зависящие от того, каким способом он был снят: 1. Вставка кадра надира на этапе склейки панорамы В случае если нодальная точка при съемке надира находилась точно в том же положении, что и при съемке остальных кадров, то в PTGui можно загрузить сразу все кадры и склеить их по схеме, описанной в предыдущей статье. Тогда в панораме следов от штатива не должно остаться.В случае если кадр надира снимался с рук, можно и его в PTGui попробовать связать с остальными. 2. Куда удобней и быстрей редактировать надир (и/или зенит) на панораме, переведенной в кубическую проекцию, используя нижнюю (верхнюю) грань куба. Самый старый, можно даже сказать устаревший, метод – в Pano2VR или Pano2QTVR перевести панораму в 6 сторон куба, отретушировав нужные стороны.

Creating Panoramas with PTGui and Panotools We will now create a panorama by using 5 photos, shot handheld in portrait mode. If you want to follow the tutorial by using my example pictures, you can download them here (1.8 MB) and extract them to a folder called "C:\tutorial". In comparison to the previous versions of PTGui, Ver. 5 has tons of new features - one of them is a very helpful Assistant which we will heavily use for creating our panorama. Posting 360° interactive panoramas to Facebook | Patrick Cheatham Getting your interactive Flash-based panoramas to display on Facebook is a bit laborious the first time around — but once you get it, you’ve got it. Unlike uploading photos/videos directly to your Facebook page or profile, you’ll want to add your 360° interactive panoramas as a link — or you’ll want other people to share your page, and have this 360° interactive panorama content show up in their Facebook feed. Take a peek at my Facebook Page to see some examples of 360° panoramas which I’ve shared. Note that this tutorial should apply to any Flash-based video or other content which you want to share (or which you want other people to share) on Facebook. NOTE: This page is no longer maintained. NOTE 2: I’ve moved on from 360° photography professionally — and am embarking on a new venture (bricks-and-mortar!)

Tips & Tricks FAQ What kind of camera will I need? A digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses is the ideal solution, but almost any camera will work if you can lock the aperture, lock the focus, and lock the white balance. Ultimately, you get what you pay for. Digital SLRs generally have more options for white balance, mirror lockup, etc… the more choices, the better! Back to top 4 Rules of shooting HDRs Lock f-stop (aperture – which controls your depth of field) Lock focus Lock white balance Turn off any in camera "automatic" image enhancing (i.e.: auto-contrast or auto-saturation, including sharpening) You will be bracketing the exposure time for your various exposures.

Wiki MALTAPANORAMAS.COM Product Review: DJI Phantom Quadcopter for GoPro by Jeff Foster Everyone is looking for that elusive aerial cam that's both affordable and easy to operate for the average videographer. I'm setting out to see if the DJI Phantom Quadcopter combined with a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition is the answer, in this two-part review and workflow study. Ever since I got my first GoPro Hero, I've longed to find a way to get it airborne remotely and even tried makeshift setups with DIY kites and researched helicopters and drones - but those were always way out of my budget - not to mention the steep learning curve in flying most of them (read: NOT CRASHING!!) So you could imagine my enthusiasm in learning about the release of the DJI Phantom for GoPro. An entry-level quadcopter/drone that a beginner can setup and fly right out of the box. And when it comes to motorized RC aircraft, I'm truly a beginner! Initial Assembly & Setup When DJI claims that the Phantom is ready to fly out of the box, it pretty much is. The kit comes complete and well-organized in the box.

Panorama Tutorials-Home The links to the left details my experience and methodology over the last ten years taking and creating interactive panoramic photographs. My camera and equipment has been changed during this period as digital SLR cameras have evolved. My current setup is here: The Manfrotto 055 Pro tripod with Leveling Centre Column 555B The 360precision panorama head Canon 5D - using manual white balance, manual exposure, and manual focus Canon 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens Canon remote release For each node, I photograph 6 around, 1 up and 2 down. The creation of the panoramas from each collection of 9 photographs is quickly performed by either Realviz Stiticher Unlimited (RVS U) 5.5 or by using PTGui 6.0.3, both these software packages are available for Apple Mac OS X or MS Windows XP. Additional post-processing is done by using actions in Adobe Photoshop CS2 and ClickHere's CubicConvertor.
