Description

The purpose of this panorama was for me to test my ability to take and process full color 3D panoramas. The taking portion of the process is pretty well down now. There are issues remaining. I do this manually with a pair of Canon cameras that I have tightly synchronized using USB connections and StereoData Maker software. The camera pair are tripod mounted and rotated to produce the image.

Viewing the image is a bit tedious because the software is simply not there yet. It is common practice to view side by side stereo images on the computer. The most popular way involves no special glasses and is called "crossed viewing" - a technique described here:

Open the full screen views to do this:

www.gigapan.org/viewGigapanFullscreen.php?id=25617
Once you have learned thes method it can become relatively easy to do, and works really well. To view this image pair you have to open the other side of the image in a separate Gigapan window and adjust the two images so they are looking at the same area and at the same size. The images need to be at the same height or the head needs to be tilted somewhat to make up for any alignment errors. While it would be nice to have stereo adjustments in GigaPan connecting the two windows (or even a macro) this is not there yet. Stereo software chokes on images of this size but is really nice for smaller images: stereo.jpn.org/eng/stphmkr/index.html Will open in a new tab or window
