The talk showcased the benefits of reprojecting equirectangular panoramas for static presentations. We have presented “simple” reprojections and also two–step reprojections using a series of transformations. An overview was given about the different available tools to reproject panoramas. Numerous “real life” examples were shown, including the original equirectangular image and possible reprojections.
The presented reprojections were based on scripts working with two different tools PixelBender (stand alone or plugin for PhotoShop) and the MathMap plugin for The Gimp.
The Den Haag Passage is a shopping mall opened in 1885 and is an UNESCO and also a national monument. After extensive restoration works in 2007 the marble floor and the facades now resemble the original state.
This article presents new versions of some Pixel Bender and Mathmap scripts with which you can apply a Droste effect to images. The changes to the older versions of the scripts are, that you are now able to use the same parameters on both scripting engines.
