I am currently working on a 360 tour for my school. ( I dont have kr pano as we do it for non profit)
Well, here is what I was able to do. I am very low on resources so, could rent a fish eye, just for a day. and I had to photograph the entire 7 floors of the building.however this is just the draft copy. I am looking ahead to rent it for few more days and redo.
The animation shows 9 areas in the building.
Known problems :
1. out of focus in certain places ( that was the first time I ever used a fish eye)
2. I shot in Av mode so, some areas have exposure problem.
3. No post-processing was done to the spherical images, as I am still in the phase of buying photoshop elements 7
Problems I am not able to solve,
1. I posted my first 360 a few weeks ago,http://megaswf.com/view/4dc2984c255c0d47ddbe0773e13c33b3.html
where I was suggested to convert them to 2:1.
So, After rendering the panos for this project I converted them into images of size 10000 px wide. Then, I just increased the canvas height wise to make it 2:1
Then imported the panos to tour weaver, and made it 360x180 degrees. So, the nadir area is not a big black spot. To eliminate the spot all together i decreased the vertical view to aprox 160 degrees but for some reason the view gets severely affected and looses originality.( i dont have better words to describe it ) however, because of the vertical offset the top view was getting chopped off..
i played with settings for a while, and could not figure it out..
in-short I want to eliminate the nadir altogether.
I am still learning to please do not hesitate to rant or ask me for any more info..
this is the test link.
Hopefully if I can explain my boss that I can correct those errors I might be able to rent the lens again for a week and get the photoshop elements 7 commissioned for the computer I have
