So I decided to add panoramas to my photography skilz...

So $1500.00 later, my bathroom looks like this:

And I'm banging my head against my computer trying to make a QTVR. :D

Dude. What a beautiful bathroom. Did you decorate it, or did you inherit the decorations?

And so clean. Ugh. You make me ashamed.

Hmmm, now I have some inspiration for what to do with the roll of blue masking tape I have in my drawer :D

Did you pre-cut the tape or did you just wing it?;)

It looks very nauseating! :eek: :p

WTF?!?! What is this all about Gary? Is the masking tape for alignment?

i think iGary is trying to symbolize the hatred between the israelis and the palestinians. he is trying to make a statement so that the hatred will stop, and peace will reign. The blue symbolizes the ocean, which is blue, and is peaceful. The vertical and horizontal lines symbolize a maze which the israeli and palestinian governments have to go thorough to get peace. The reason gary did this in his bathroom is because everyone goes to the bathroom one time or another. It's what brings us together. The bathroom. So he is also trying to say that since the Israelis and the Palestinians have something in common ( the bathroom), they should have peace.

or maybe gary did it to signify the beauty of an omlette. Either way, it's highly symbolic...:D

Fabulous tub! The colors are wonderful

There is a small app that comes with Canon cameras called "Photostitch" that makes QTVRs of panoramic shots.

Here (http://ryanharne.com/photographs/testqtvr.mov) is an example of the success of Photostitch :)

I'm using PTMac to make a virtual tour like this one:

The tape is to provide accurate control points between the shots so the application can stitch them together.

God help you if you ever want to take a panoramic QTVR'd shot of the ocean. For that matter, as I'm unsure where the tape needs to go, you might want to avoid shots involving people, especially small children. ;-)

For some reason, the first picture reminds me of 2001:A Space Odyssey, but I'm not sure why.

DUCT tape, not DUCK tape. As in tape for sealing ducts.

And yes, the old man would be proud if iGary had used some of the handyman's secret weapon.

From what I understand, once I have a template built from this tape mess, I will never have to set control points again. As long as you shoot the scene exactly as you did for the template, the stitching program already knows what pixels match.

iGary your bathroom reminds me of The Birdcage. Not sure why until the partner comment. Do you have those painted plates as well? :)

...I don't know how I missed this thread :o How did all this work out for you Gary - did you get your template done?

Funny you ask, Dave - I had to put it down for a while because of work, and am about to try again (third attempt) so wish me luck!

This time I'll be smart and ask some cropping and other questions before I go placing 50 million little CP's all ove rthe place, though. ;)

I'm leaving my other job, so I do need to get going though!

I'll pester you when it comes to batching stage. :D

Thanks. :)

Except that originally it was called Duck Tape. And it's good for just about everything EXCEPT sealing ducts...it doesn't hold up under the heat.
