Reprojecting equirectangular images for a printed presentation

We held a talk at the Palmela International Panoramic Photography Festival: Reprojecting equirectangular images for a printed presentation and also at the PanoTools Meeting 2011 in Vienna.

You can find the video recording of the talk in Palmela here.

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.
