    Just thought I would share this. The technology and images are pretty amazing. I have seen Eric Hanson lecture about this and I have his Maya DVDs where he talked about this at great length. It seems he and others have taken this a step farther and created this website

    Try zooming in on the images it's pretty insane stuff.

    Isn't this the same person that took a bunch of pics of the Australian skyline and the ruins of Machu Picchu and allowed you to zoom waaaaaay in? It's awesome, real cool stuff.

    :eek: That's insane. And Yosemite is pretty... I need to go there again...

    I can't find the climber nor the hiker. Are they foolin' with me?

    It may be resolution, or the people may be where the frames are stitched together- if you look at the first Boston scene you can see the strangeness in the flag and the white car's ghost behind itself.

    Hi Guys,

    I am one of the photographers from xRez. Thanks for the kudos! The Macchu Piccho and Austrailia image was a different photographer, but it was the same technique, stitching multiple images. In our case we shot about 350-600 images to create our panoramas. Be sure you go into the technology section and check out some of the time-lapse and other images too!

    Good to see you here, you have some pretty amazing stuff there!!! I have been doing a lot of training though the Gnomom school DVDs (mostly Maya) and I have to say the stuff you guys do there is just mind blowing. I'm a big fan of a lot of the talent there, Eric, Alex, Dylan, yourself included. Again, excellent stuff!

    I saw something like this once, but I dont think it's the same thing. A guy didnt just take 600 pictures and splice them together. Just one. He used an old camera that was used in spy-planes. It (along with its film) was HUGE! I'll see if I can find the website.

    Ah yes, here.
