"Hide" tripod

Hi all,

I've just buyed a Nikon CP8800 (bad choose, better the 8400, so I can make tour with only 2 photos) MrotatorB and FC-E9.
Now, how can I make disappear the tripod? With an image shoot how?

I'm searching also the right adjustment for the camera, thanks!

In your favorite photo editor create a 200 x 200 pixel image graphic.  Then put the image in Panoweaver's folder called \C&F.  It means Ceiling and Floor

Mine is located at C:\Program Files\Easypano\Panoweaver 4.00\C&F

While you are in Panoweaver you can now place your new graphic into the image and it should cover your panorama head.

I'm sorry, maybe I don't well explain what I want to do: not cover but "disappear", to see the ground. I see it in many panos, beautiful!

You must clone out the tripod in Photoshop using Cloning & Healing tools.

You may also take a photo of the ground where the tripod was positioned and use part of this image to cover over and blend into the final image. To work on the ground area you should first convert image to "Cubic Tiles" make the modification and then convert back to Spherical 2:1 projection.

All of the work is after you have stitched the images.

Regards, Smooth

You can use Remap from PanoTools to convert your Spherical 2:1 projection into a fisheye projection, and since you shoot the nadir also with a fisheye it is a bit easier to have the retouching imange in the same projection. But cubes are also ok.
