  1. Commercial building interiors

    #1

    Greetings, I would like to share a few shots from a commercial shoot I just won and completed BECAUSE I can now shoot panos.

    This Michigan client found me on Google and explained they needed 6 locations shot around Atlanta. It involved a lot of interiors and exteriors of dental offices. As we were discussing the shoot I inquired if she was interested in considering interior panoramas. She was interested. I submitted an estimate and heard from her the next day. Even though my price was 20% higher I got the gig...largely because of the panos.

    I started shooting last Tuesday (May 17) and submitted images to her very early this morning. Very long hours, and I won't bore you with the "regular" images, but I added the panos to my portfolio here: http://carrollmorganphoto.com/portfo...-and-skylines/

    One question: How can I get "straight" lines? Is it possible?

    Thanks,

    Carroll Morgan

    The only projection that keeps all straight real-world lines straight in the picture is the rectilinear projection. It limits your FOV to less than 180 degrees, and wider than about 120 degrees starts to look badly distorted on the edges. You can try the "Pannini" projection to keep perspective lines straight.
    Another method is to use a "VR" viewer program that generates a dynamically zoomable and scrollable rectilinear view showing a part of the whole panorama.

    Thank you for that information. It looks like I will be forced to learn software other than Photoshop. Just tried Hugin and it was not great. What VR viewer should I consider? Thanks again.

    Hi Carroll,

    in PTGui Pro you can find an output option for rectilinear projection.

    Most of us use Pano2VR, KRPano, FPP + FFC, or Autopano Tour ( uses KRPano )

    Heinz, thanks for those links. Would you please give me your personal recommendation as best for my needs? Also, is there such a thing as a non-Flash tool?

    Feel free to PM off list if you like.
