One thing I am not clear about. I cannot visualize how a camera
displaced from the NPP can generate a stereo pair of images
from strips taken from the opposing left- and right-hand edges
of the images it takes.
I can see how taking narrow strips would ease stitching problems...
Thank you for sustaining such an interesting and informative thread.
I hope it will encourage others to investigae stereo panoramas. It
is certainly encouraging me. I am delighted to think that my early
interest in stereo (dating from over 50 years ago) to my recent
interest in panoramas (only the last four or five years) now look
as if they are coming together.
Would you share the PS droplet for trimming images?
