Here is what it looks like inside that inflatable structure (2)
(the sort of subject where auto point finding fails utterly).
These spaces will make very good stereo panos I think and I will try to do some soon -- using a twin camera motorized indexing construction for capture.
Re the exterior 3d pano -- it was extremely dull and dark and at a higher iso which is source of the main ghosting issue apart from the depth range. Bringing up the shadows destroyed the highlight detail. I have been thinking for these kind of extensive views of public spaces where the architecture is important the higher the better mostly. I will try to shoot it with a higher pole in better light. Still I kinda like it as is for the way the people are spread out all over in different directions in little groups in 3d. The people act as a scale reference so you can see the depth where they are standing more clearly and quickly. Sometimes a 3d picture is so full of cues, including parallax, that the layout is apparent instantly. Sometimes it is a more extended process.
