AutoPanna Giga Retouchers

by richard shirazian » Sat Feb 18, 2012 8:42 am

Dear Forum,

I have been commissioned to do a shoot for a client and there is one particular image that we need to capture of an interior circular space in a mall which requires a set of images to be shot not from the central point but on an perpendicular axis parallel to the outer circle straight on..with the camera moving on an circular arc..and then put together..my question is there any specialized re-touchers in this group that would want to take the challange on for a fee?

If so please let me know via the forum or reply to my email..i have a trial set of images that can be sent through, but would perhaps need to re-shoot as well.

Is any body up for a real challenge.

Richard

I do retouching, but I am unsure what you are having issues with, maybe if you can explain in more details what the problem is or if you want someone to stitch it together and make it "ready for delivery"

let me know a bit more you can contact me on tivedATiinetdotnetdotau

Kindest regards

I have done something like that before, moving circular 360 on a tower & shooting around from different point of view each shot, but it will depend a lot on how you shoot & how accurately can maintain the distance from the walls.

sorry for hijacking this thread ;-)
We are planing to shoot a gigapixel with this technique but as it's the first time we need to shoot from different viewpoints we are a bit unsure what we need to pay attention for ...
Maybe you got some proposals?

Thx

What is the compelling reason for shooting gigapixel by moving the camera along the circle rather than shooting from a fixed central point? If you can describe your scene bit more in detail then we can give you some more input.

We want to shoot a 360° Gigapixel from top of the "Kitzbüheler Horn" - but as there is a broadcast tower on the very top of the mountain we need to move aroud this tower to get the 360° done ... ;-)

yea that's it! ;-)
here is a profile of the Kitzbühler Horn: http://www.gpix.at/Gpix.at-Gigapixel_gpath,kitzbuehel,pid,9112,type,gpix.html?vath=-0.007325357883220371&vatv=-0.1074836345474659&vfov=0.007623584184286473
We need at least 2-3 shooting positions to get a fully 360° gigapixel.

Just looking at this quickly it seems reasonably straightforward. if you pick 3 shooting positions going around the mast, and then shoot 120 degrees wide plus overlap each side.
Stitching each 120+ will be perfectly normal, so your main concern then is the overlap of the 3 different perfect sets. You dont seems to shoot 360x180 so that's a few problems solved already :)
You're subject is very forgiving with lots of sky, more problems solved :)
so if you choose the 3 overlap areas with minimal foreground (to minimise parallax) you should be fine - the overlap should dictate your shooting position

APG in theory would find three panoramas, then simply move them into right place and edit from there- wonderfully cimple in theory! good luck :)

it sounds "that easy" ;-)
I hope I get the time / weather to shoot this Pano in the next few weeks ... ;-)

Thx!

This is perfectly doable stitch, that is exactly what I did but from an industrial chimney. I marked 12 equal section from which the shot was taken on periphery. Mine was not a gigapixel but a regular 360 view around cylindrical image.
London gigapixel was done from a tower moving along the path.
