This amazing 3D-Stereo image is best viewed at www.3dpan.org/aspenhighlands Will open in a new tab or window
You may view with anaglyph glasses or select cross or parallel side-by-side views with 'change view' button in upper right. The Stereo Images stay aligned even upon deep zoom!
Please try the 3D-Stereo viewer and explore before voting ;)
(Please consider that it is the largest 3D-stereo image ever produced in the history of photography, and with the 3dpan.org alignment technology, the right and left eye views stay aligned even when zoomed fully in. A ton of creative effort went into the production of this image (both photographically, custom electronics, and programing the viewer software)
This image was produced with a Gigapan Epic Pro and two Panasonic FZ50 cameras mounted on a custom 20 inch spread mounting bar. 1.7x accessory lenses were attached to each camera. Cameras were synched with a custom Arduino circuit to fire both cameras simultaneously.

    www.3dpan.org/aspenhighlands  Will
open in a new tab or window is the proper place to view this Gigapan. It employs new technology to keep the images aligned upon zooming in, and allows for 3D-Stereo views using anaglyph and side by side techniques. Its not really possible to view in 3D stereo with the stock Gigapan viewer.

    How did you get two Panasonic FZ-50 cameras on the Gigapan? Any tricks? Thanks I have an older FZ-10 and was thinking of getting a second to try similar shots. Dekaya

    This is very beautiful! The 3-D effect is very strong once I learned how to view it.

    I like all the blue sky. And I think gigapans need to look good if they are to appeal to the general public (and I want the general public to be involved as much as possible). I have lots of gigapans that look really dull when you first look at them but they have lots of interesting details. The average punter isn't going to bother to look unless you make them do so by making a virtual tour like the Zoom Baby thing. IMO.

    Hi Zmalol, concerning the sky - the 3D VR style viewer (Krpano) does not have the ability to move the eyepoint of the viewer camera up or down, Krpano needs the horizon at the center-line of the image or results like this occur www.3dpan.org/1252vr Will open in
a new tab or window where the horizon (cropped to be above the center-line) is badly curved when in the image it is actually straight www.3dpan.org/1252flat Will open in
a new tab or window - so shooting with the same amount of image being above the level horizon as below keeps everything in the image copacetic. In this image, while the mountain peaks are above the horizon, the actual horizon is right at the center-line of the image. Also, in the VR type viewers, it is nice to have the sky, look at this image through this link www.3dpan.org/47924-47924--100.27- -.3175-200-200 Will open in
a new tab or window to enjoy it in all its best. I hope to someday have a viewer using nVidia 3D vision, but the technology is not yet available. Cross-eyed 3D viewing is easy to learn though, visit www.3dpan.org Will open in
a new tab or window for more 3D panoramas and a lesson on viewing in 3D! Thanks Jason

    Nice panorama. But a bit of wasting of gigapixels for the sky (7-8 Gpx of blue sky). I know it is good to have the same angle above and below horizon but I am just wondering why there is no "Crop" tool in the Stitcher. In many cases of gigapans some severe vigneting grid lines appear on the sky and the most easy way to get rid of it would be just cropping.

    Very nice Jason. It is difficult to capture snow scenes. It is amazing how you can see the chair lifts and skiers off in the distance. Great job : )
