Panoweaver 4.0 will output Quicktime or Easypano ActiveX FlyVR in Full Screen.

Output choice is yours (Actually you can output both at once) I believe.

Do you need Quicktime Pro? No, but you will require Quicktime installed to view.

So 4.0 is the forthcoming version, then?
Will it also allow output at 300 dpi for print? Seems a shame to waste 11 megapixels of resolution.....
And while we're on, does it work in 8 or 16 bit? Just need to know how much RAM to order.........

I'm waiting to see results before I buy a lens fpr my new Canon D20 (yihhaaa.... at last)
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.

I think I wrote about this earlier but

Full frame sensor 35mm wide x 24mm high w/diagonal 43.3mm

Canon 20d 2/3rd sensor is 22.5mm wide x 15mm high w/diagonal 27.06mm

full size sensor diagonal  43.3
Canon 20d diagonal is 27.06

(43.3 / 27.06 = 1.600 ratio

8mm Sigma is really is a 12.8mm lens effective 35mm = 8 x 1.6 = 12.8mm.

The largest image Canon 20 records is 3504 w x 2336h pixels

When you put your 20d on the vertical bracket your image will be oriented long side up.  This way you get a full 180 degree angle of view in the up position.  However,  now the horizontal angle of view is truncated to 119.9 or 120 degrees

Full 180 degree angle of view covers top to bottom of the image that is 3504 pixels high.

So 3504 h / 2336 w = .66666

180 degrees x .66666 = 119.9 or 120 degrees angle of view.

120 degree angle of view x 4 images = 480 degrees with overlap

480 - 360 = 120 / 4 = 30 degrees overlap for stitching.

So it appears that 4 images taken every 90 degrees on your pan head is good enough for stitching.

Ahhhh .. now I forgot where we were going with this discussion.  I will read this thread again and come back later for a conclusion.

Yeah, back to 2002!

Some people sure do know how to dig up an old thread.

BTW: 3 Fisheye shots from a digital SLR is enough to make a spherical panorama with the new Agnos MrotatorC panohead. Sample's available on www.agnos.com and also my site in the full screen gallery.

Phil,

Because the 1Ds produces full circular images you will only need 3 shots to stitch with Panoweaver 4.0 the 1Ds does not produce "Drum" style images. (I suppose you could make them by cutting down the images but this would be a step backwards).

I think you're right, Smooth. Post removed.

To reply your post, of course you can crop the photo, but if you have 4 "full sized" drum photo (or 6 fullframe fish)made with an 1Ds, the quality should be impressive. The best quality you can get with PW4.

Hi Phil,

Point taken but not the correct way for stitching images from 1Ds.

You would get maximum effect from 1Ds with 15mm fisheye (Not 8mm) for use with Panoweaver 4.0 this way you would get 6 "Full frame" (NOT Circular) images + up and down shots making total of 8 images. (Similar to 10.5mm Nikkor)
