Re: How to stitch the Nadir and Zenith?
- Thank you for the reply John.
I had a good read and then attacked PTGui with my extra shots.
I must admit, it seemed to take me longer to make the separate
blended zenith and nadir psd than using my regular work flow of
copying and pasting the centre area of the original zenith and nadir
shots onto the extracted image from PTEditor.
This is probably down to the fact that my pano head doesn't support
vertical positions so I just pick the whole thing up, tripod and all
and take shots up and down. I guess the camera is not alligned
correctly with the horizontal shots position.
If there isn't enough light indoors, I rest the whole thing on a
spare tripod that I carry around so there's no camera movement.
I did like adding the Zenith shot though on it's own though and
managed to get a psd of just that.
I have the Panosaurus head also but the weight of my Nikon CP 8400
with the FC-E9 fisheye makes it lean slightly!
Thanks for your help and I'll keep practicing.
