Tutorial 4

Here’s the another set of images to be stitched in PTGui — images shot from the tripod. We thus need a couple of extra steps (using the masking feature and “Viewpoint correction”) to prevent the tripod from appearing in our final panorama.

To try it out for yourself, grab the images here!

The final outcome can be seen here on 360cities.net.

  1. Hi Florian, I hope you are fine!

    One comment on tutorial 4:

    Is that possible to remove tripod taking only 4 photos ? In case it is possible please send me a video showing that. I’m very interested to know about the entire process (from shoot photos to stitched in PTGui). In case is not possible please send information about the best way to remove tripod in a easy and efficiently way.

    Thank You and Have a great day!

  2. Well, it depends on your shooting pattern. But generally, you need of course to cleanly capture “all pixels around you” in some form or another (i.e. without a tripod obscuring them). Which ever shooting pattern you use to achieve this is entirely up to you. Otherwise, if you don’t have parts of your image without tripod in it, you need to retouch those parts in an image editor to make up for those “lost” pixels.
