Hi all,
first want to thank the creator of this program. wonderful job done here.
I was playing with it and my fisheye creating some quicktime vr of my flat.
One shot and running the programm. The result is pretty good but I have big distorsion on the corner and border line of my quicktime.
So here is my question :
Is there a way with pano2QTVR to improve that (or by a pretreatment by a third party program) and obtain relatif correct border ?

Thanks to all for you help.

I shoot with the Nikon 10.5 fisheye and stitch with PTGui and use the output to Pano2qtvr.. result is perfection.

Thanks for you answer Ric.
The real problem is that i only shoot one picture to create the panoramic. With multiple micture and correct stichin Igess that you must obtain fantastic results but in my case it doesn t apply no ?
Is there a way with PTGUI to improve corner distorsion on panoramic made only with one picture ?
Thanks again.

Improve corners distortion

In fact, I wish to take just 1 photo with my fisheye (Jpeg format) and create a mov file with Pano2Qtvr software. Today, I can do it but there is big distortions on the straight lines. I have found few softwares like PTLens to correct the distortion but it's not very easy to use and furthermore you can't correct with automatic scripts.

1. I took a picture with a Nikon camera and a fisheye lens ( ref: FC-E8 ),
2. I create a .MOV file by using the Pano2Qtvr software (I tried several Pano2qtvr configurations but without success)

You will find the sample files on this link: ...

Thanks a lot for your help.

ok got it. Now I understand.

You might consider using a tripod, panorama head with the lens set at the proper no parallax point, and taking 3 or 4 images around the horizon.

1 image will not make a full 360 or 180 degree panorama. Suggest taking 3 or 4 images and stitch them together using ptgui or panoweaver.

The first .mov link takes me to a 404 page.
The second take me to Easypano's home page.

One item I did learn.. Panoweaver 5 will "stitch" a single full spherical image... it dewarps it like you have shown in the bottom image.

Are these your intentions ?

Stitch Automatic batch

Thanks you a lot for your help!!!! :D

I did see Panoweaver allows to perform the stitch batchs only on version 5.0. I didn't find informations about the stitch automatic batchs.

In fact, I wish to run automatic batchs by developing a program in order to correct my pictures and generate Quicktime file like output.

Do you know how to work the stitch batch with Panoweaver V5.0 tool?
