TR's Panoramic Viewer Test


Recommended Posts

I'm working on a panoramic Viewer called TR's PanoPDN

 

I'm still tweaking it. Here's a pre-release version. 

 

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

 

 

Menu:

Effects- > Photo

 

This plugin converts equirectangular images into a texture map and renders them in direct3d.

 

Equirectangular images are also known as spherical images, spherical projections, plate carree.  Search under those names.

 

Equirectangular Images can be downloaded on Google Images or here http://www.flickr.com/groups/equirectangular/

 

 

If you want to create your own panoramics download Microsoft ICE http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ice/

 

It will stitch multiple photos into a spherical  panoramic.

 

 

 

Only images with 2:1 aspect ratios are processed. If it's a true Spherical image but it's been stretched then resize it to 2:1

 

The higher the resolution the better

 

Install the TRsPanoPDN Plugin in Effects folder

and the TRPANOVIEW Viewer in the "Documents\paint.net User Files " folder

No. You're not allowed to use anything from PdnResources. That stuff, e.g. where things are stored and whatnot, are internal implementation details and are always subject to change.

 

In v4.0 this class, and in fact that entire assembly, are 'internal' (vs. 'public'). You literally cannot use anything from it because the compile will no longer allow it. Any plugin compiled for v3.5.x which uses PdnResources will not work in 4.0, and I will not be making any compatibility concessions for this.

 

I've said this many times before, but it bears repeating: the paint.net DLLs are not a utility library for your plugin!!!!! If you have to ask yourself the question, "can I use this?," the default answer is "nope." I've been trying to make it more apparent what can and cannot be used (e.g. by making things 'internal') but it's a large task and not entirely tractable.

WOOT!  I have been waiting for something like this to come along!  That would come in handy for HDR mapping in 3D application such as Blender.

Trevor,

 

I have a plugin ready to roll out that converts a spherical image into 6 cube image files - I used it as a testing ground for this code - that may be good for using blender.

I can post it as a pre-release in this topic when I get home tonight. I never totally error trapped that interface so make sure you put in a valid output filename.

Typically, 3D modelers use HDR mapping for lighting the scene, but I'm willing to give it a whirl when I have a chance.  I use my iPhone to take Panorama photography because they make it sooooo easy to take it, but I would like to try to create those neat photographs like you referenced above.  As a bonus, I didn't even know Microsoft developed an editor you linked to, and I had a look.  My jaws came unhinged.

Here it is. It's called TR's SphereCuber

converts a spherical image into 6 cube image files 

It works great but I have to make the file save routine trap bad file names - then I'll release it 

but first I'll finish the Pano Viewer

 

I also used it to make 3D paper boxes
