How to remove the tripod on the complex floor?

In Panoweaver 910, you can remove the tripod by viewpoint correcting. Even if the floor is complex, the tripod can be removed perfectly without any trace.

Inclining to Shoot the Floor

  • shooting the artificial floor

After shooting the horizontal image and the real floor, move the tripod backward for about 3 ft, in case that it will cover the original area.
Incline the horizontal axis 60°and take another photo of the floor, which is the Artificial Floor. Then it’s 30°on the dial gauge.

  1. Manual focus is a must to shoot the artificial floor, or the floor may be blurred while the head and the tripod are clear.
  2. In post processing, we need to add some matching points between the real floor and the artificial floor. It is recommended to do some marks on the floor such as a coin to make it easier to find the matching point.
  3. Shooting the artificial floor is the key. Please carefully refer the "Inclining to shoot the floor". 
  4. The way to remove the tripod in drum fisheye image is the same as the way in fullframe fisheye image. The ceiling photo is not needed.
