Nice one Markus,

Looks sweet!

You should clean up the seam on the "B" pillar and it would be next to perfect.

Regards, Smooth

Smooth

Your are right, I really should do this. Will make a note, so when I get around I fix it :-)

Markus,

Looks real good.  So you added all the outside
stuff with Photoshop?  That looks real nice,
  I tried cars before but never liked the
outside looks.

Well its quite easy

a) Take the pano of the car to PS

b) Take any other outside pano you took

c) put the outside pano layer under the car pano layer

d) mask the windows

There you go. Now you can take any pano under the masked image of the car and you have new back ground in just 3 seconds.

Here is a pano of someone using this way to add a ouside pano to a inside car shot.

The left door shows you the masking unfortunately but you get the idea

Another way to solve this problem is to cover the windows with a semi-transparent paper and light the windows (That is of course if you have the paper, want to go to the bother, have lighting available). This gives a smooth and consistant interior light and makes removeing the outside image very easy later in PS.

Markus.... very nice work.

@phoenixrising

That's an excelent idea with the paper and the light. I keep that tip in mind next time I do a inside car pano.

Just thought I would mention.. that it works with room panoramas with bright windows.

Scroll down to middle page and find Mi Hotelito at Maroma Beach ...  The two rooms turned out sort of good.  I know I could do better.

The El Dorado Seaside Suites ALMOST had a window burn out issue at the lounge.  Fortunately we did not have to do exterior replacements.

All the El Dorado Seaside, Mi Hotel and Playa Maroma Beach panoramas were done recently while on photo shoot in Cancun Mexico.  We used Canon 20d Raw and Sigma 8, converted to TIF's tweaked in Photoshop, then adapted to java, QTVR, and Flash.

While we used alternate stitching software, we did confirm that all these can be efficently stitched with PW4.

Nice work Dave, looks like your setup and workflow are going well and producing good work.
