360 Degree Image Stitching
« on: August 20, 2009, 03:36:57 PM »
Hi All,
I have the ability to do the 360 degree panorama shots, but I'm curious to know if there's a piece of software available for PC which will stich together images for 360 degree product images - eg I'd be able to show or move an object through 360 degrees.
Any experiences with this sort of software anyone?
Regards
Paul.

Hello Paul I don't know if this is anything like you want but I played with it last year it is called Photosynth it is a microsoft programme  I loaded a selection of shots taken in a friends workshop if it doesn't work let me know and I will try and sort it out but it gives a walk through and allows you to zoom into corners etc it is a hell of a tool  this is the workshop set I think you have to download the programme to view it http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=9d609c8e-dc7d-48d9-ace8-a9f81228a844&i=0:0:52&z=292.15099131676413&g=0&p=-181.507:20.1377&m=false&c=0.577013:-1.44493:-0.0079182&d=-0.195196:-2.58188:-1.63262
it contains  124 seperate photo's and is  worth a look

Photosynth requires MS Silverlight be installed.    BZZZZZZTTTTT.

This is a "standard" MS are trying to force onto the world.  And using photosynth is one of their strategies to push silverlight.

Responsible computer users avoid adopting MS "standards" like silverlight because they are not only non-standard, they are aimed at MS lock-in in the marketplace.

Hi Alan I accept your opinion about Microsoft but you seem to have missed the point have you got an alternative programme or method to achieve what was asked for in the original post

If you know anyone with a Canon even a P&S there is a software included in the bundle for stitching. For the life of me I cannot remember the name of it right now and will update when I can find it. I know it is included on almost all there camera models.


UPDATE: Only took me a second to google "Free panoramic stitching software" and found this.

I probably shouldn't have since I work freelance for Obeo but I doubt you live near me :)

I don't think he's looking for pano tools, he's looking for something to create a "walkaround" of a product, like when you get a 360o tour of a camera on a web page.
