Create panoramic images from panning video clips. panOptica S2 creates stunning panoramic images from a range of devices, including mobile phones, camcorders and cameras, allowing precise action placement.
Here are some examples
Start with a panning video clip
panOptica analyses the clip to work out the camera focal length, lens and rotation of the camera between frames
Identify the moving foreground - in this screencast the process is automated but manual assistance is also possible
Now we can make a scene which does not include the moving foreground
You can position the action exactly as you want it in the scene. In this screencast, one of the dogs is being framed for the camera
Now you can manipulate the camera which shoots the action over the scene
And the results can be published, in this case to a panorama player
Uniquely, panOptica S2 reconstructs the original scene for you, allowing you to "re-film" the action, place people and objects where you want them to be and remove unwanted foreground.
Imagine you are back at the scene of your shoot. panOptica takes you there. You can reveal the background and re-introduce the action, choosing the best bits. Then you can take a new photo - but using a projection and angle of view that is completely impossible with a normal camera.Give it a go with our FREE evaluation!;It's fun! Available on Microsoft Windows : Vista, 7 and 8; and Mac OS X 10.7 and 8.
