It looks good, but mabye a bit soft, like it wouldnt suffer from a bit of unsharp mask just to crisp up the details once youve zoomed in

Sorry for my bad English. ;)
The is a pre-project. Here we have tested the technology and workflow. There were a total of 698 JPG photos. Next time we'll work with RAW photos and bracketing. I think it will certainly be better.

Thanks for the advice

Holger, Excellent job. Did you program a flash plugin for the snapshots ( small images / thumbnail images ) at the bottom of the panorama?

With these panoramas it is difficult to exposure bracket it because it is so large. I recently captured a 612 position panorama with three exposure brackets. I ended up choosing one exposure bracket and stitching it. I recently purchased Kingston 32GB cards for capturing panoramas like this because every time that you need to change memory cards you risk missing a shot and create extra work.

You can preprocess the exposure brackets before you stitch with Photomatix Pro, Picturnaute 3, or another tool, but you will need to retouch images such as the one that contains the airplane before stitching. I am able to use the Gigatiler tool to slice the image into large blocks such as 20k x 20k, but I am not able to put all of the blocks together without writing a script. A person suggested using the imageMagick montage command.

Google Language Tools

Holger, Excellent job. Haben Sie ein Flash-Plugin-Programm für die Schnappschüsse
(Kleine Bilder / Thumbnails) am unteren Rand des Panoramas?

Mit diesen Panoramen es schwierig ist, die Exposition Klammer, weil es
so groàŸ ist. Ich habe vor kurzem ein 612 erfasst Panorama Position mit drei
Exposition Klammern. Ich landete der Auswahl einer Belichtung Halterung und
Nà¤hen ist. Ich habe vor kurzem gekauft Kingston 32GB-Karten für die Erfassung

Sie kà¶nnen die Belichtung Klammern, bevor Sie mit Vorverarbeitung Stich
Photomatix Pro, Picturnaute 3, oder ein anderes Tool, aber Sie müssen
retuschieren Bilder wie die, dass das Flugzeug enthà¤lt, bevor

Thanks for the compliment.

Also we know the problems with the space. Here we use DSLR Remote Pro from Breeze. There the camera via a USB cable is connected to the notebook. The camera is controlled from the computer and the photos are stored on the notebook.

The bracketing problem, we have not yet been resolved.

The solution with the thumbnails is a proprietary development.

Sorry for the bad language. I can read English well and understand, but not write. :/

Ideally the viewer should know of the user's screen definition (how many pixels it can display) and should automatically select the maximum zoom factor accordingly and avoid displaying any fuzzy image. It should even automatically adjust sharpening (micro-contrast) accordingly! In my opinion this is the weakest point of www.gigapan.org where rolling the mouse wheel to the max always result in a diasappointing experience...

I found that, especially in situations like going from "Hauss d. Press" to "Landtag" views, zooming to the full pano view and then zooming in to the new view is somewhat boring.

Besides that, the interface looks promising.

Depending on the last pano viewer I used my own expectations vary ! There is no evidence that Apple selected the right directions when designing Quicktime VR and since then, well :rolleyes: :mad: :rolleyes:

GURL, maybe you already are aware that HolgerS used krpano for this panorama. Krpano does have a feature for sharpening the tiles and controlling the maximum zoom.

I don't like the 100% zoom on gigapan, nor do I like the sampling used to make the top of the image pyramid. I just continue to try and influence them to improve or change these aspects of the viewer.

Absolutely fantastic! I could zoom in so far it seemed like I could zoom forever. I was 'disappointed' that I couldn't!

Superb work HolgerS, absolutely superb. The technical data on how the shoot was accomplished and the computer hardware use is staggering! My congratulations on such a project.

Technically interesting exercise, but boring. Where's the human interest?

In the exploration of the image ?

Theres a zooming revolution going on and once authoring apps can cope with the new potential these images have, great stuff will be made with this new medium.

Wow! Whether you like this image or not, I am suprised by the amount of attention that it is attracting. It seems to be accelerating. I have seen posts about it at places I would not expect.
