Joseph, also known as BlueMojo, has made a screenrecording about the panorama software Hugin. And of course I had to try it too!
I installed Hugin on Ubuntu 7.10 – IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll post some quirks I had to circumvert later. Then I went out on to my street and shot a series while I turned 360Ã‚Â°. I followed JosepÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s advice and set exposure, white balance and focus to manual.
Here are some links for you to explore:
- The files from Joseph and me for download are linked in the next post. There is a feed problem.
- The Hugin project homepage.
- Wikipedia entry about panoramas with some excellent examples. Including the chinese drawing from the show.
- A blog entry about shooting panoramas on a site about linux and photography. The blog is worth to explore and there is more to come.
- Edit: A tutorial about Hugin on the same site.
- A list of all the Lottofeen in the German TV.
And here is your challenge: Make a panorama with Hugin (or another Open Source Software) and put it into the meetthegimp.org photogroup at 23. On (or after) Friday Dec. 14 IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll ask a guest to draw one of the entries in a pure scientifically randomized way. The winner will get a code for a year of Ã¢â‚¬Å“plusÃ¢â‚¬Â membership at 23 (value 20Ã¢â€šÂ¬). And in the last show before Christmas IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll show all the images in a special last 2007 episode.
