Been playing a bit with a program called Autopano ( www.autopano.net
) that can take a bunch of pictures and turn them into a panoramic view. It's actually made to work with digital photos, but I don't have a camera, so I decided to experiment with an Imagine
This panorama is made from eight frames that were produced by spinning the camera 90 degrees around the Z axis. Autopano can do more than that, but I don't have any scenes (that I can remember anyway) with scenery all around, and making one just to test the program is a bit too much work this time of night.
The program I have is a demo version that watermarks all the frames before joining them, which has the strange effect of putting a string of illegible text (because the watermarks overlap) along the middle of the image. Thanks to the simple background I was able to remove the string almost without trace. I also retouched the edge of B's table a bit; looks like the program has some trouble with objects close to the camera when there aren't enough samples.
One thing I didn't do anything about is the wavy top and bottom edges. They are like that because the pictures have to be bent slightly to fit together.
