shows us what is possible with 6 GoPro cameras stitched together to create a 360 degree spherical panorama:
How was this created?
You need 6 GoPros on a 360 degree rig. Jonas made a special rig created by a 3D printer, but you can get readymade solutions too.
You can read about his experiences here (needs to be translated).
The challenges to creating these types of panoramas are perfect lens placement with overlap, synchronization of video, shake and software. Once the images are shot they need to be stitched together in software.
The software that does all of this is Autopano Video. You can check out the workflow here. The final video can be output into a wide variety of formats. You could do a ‘little world’, like Jonas has done, or you could create a virtual world where the user can rotate within it while a performance is happening. All possible.
Cute solution, no?
