If you want to see multiple video sources laid next to eachother on the screen at the same time? This is easily done in Final Cut ( Pro and Express ). If you want a program that will intelligently find the common bondries and create one large resolution clip, no I don't think there is such a thing.With still photos, there are lots of "stitching" software packages. By stitching, I mean combining like in a panorama.
Is there the equivalent in the video world?
Yes that's basically what I was looking for.If you want a program that will intelligently find the common bondries and create one large resolution clip, no I don't think there is such a thing.
Hope this helps!
If you mean an effect like "Cinerama" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CineramaYes that's basically what I was looking for.
What about the wide (WIDE) screens at like hockey arenas? What software drives those?
Actually, there are examples of where this is done for video editing. Apple Shake comes to mind, which by the way would be a great (read: high-end, if utmost quality is your goal) tool to composite multiple videos into one.There is a common video format used in the motion picture industry (but not in the video industry.) It is just one still image per frame where all the stills are in a common folder.
From Tampa Lightnings arenaThe video LED ring is 904 linear feet in length and 2 ½ feet in height, completely encompassing the arenas lower fascia and offering fans 360 degrees of action, color and messaging. Thirty-two pixels high and 13,776 pixels wide, the video LED ring can be programmed from the master control center in conjunction with the main broadcasting center or completely separately, displaying any graphic or video information desirable.
