    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I finally got around to finding adequate software to meet my panorama stitching needs... and it is good :bigthumb: Check it out

    I tried the second one by hand and I was halfway through by hour 3.... the program took about 45 seconds :noes:

    www.arcsoft.com search panorama on the little search thing at the top right corner of the site. download the trial. Profit.

    wow, love the first one! it looks like a winter snowscape :cool:

    the road, lake and converging lines of trees really make the image work.


    have you tried panorama factory as well? interested to know how the arcsoft software compares. pfactory is good, but not perfect IME.

    I didn't have to change anything on either of those to get them where I wanted them (except resizing of course) so I'm thinking arcsoft is pretty damn good :big grin:

    If there's any interest, I might sell a few copies of these matted. However, the lake one has a jitter problem in the far right frame that really fucked it up pretty bad :( so the huge wide one is probably best bet for printage.

    hardware:

    tripod (try to get it somewhat level, though it's not that huge of a concern)

    hoya r72 infrared filter (they're el cheapo, much more so than wratten or anyone else's equivilant infrared filter)

    nikon d70 (any digital should work pretty damn good though)

    a long exposure of each section with lots of overlap

    Arcsoft panorama maker 3.

    That's all :)

    Looks good! I have a canon and there was a photo stitching program that came with mine... but it takes way longer than 45 seconds!

    I use a program that came with my Canon SD500. Sometimes the spots where the images were stitched together is blurred. Hence creating a piece of junk.

    I'll consider posting more, if I get around to shooting more. The last one got gummed up by lens flare :mad:

    Wow, really good... how would one go about taking infrared pictures, if all he/she has is a 300D with a kit lens?

    Use luck, because canon uses a stronger IR blocking filter. Open up your 300d, take out said filter, and replace it with an equally sized piece of perfect glass.

    Do you have the full-color visible-light version of either of those two pictures? I could use the comparison between them for a project I'm working on.

    I do, as a matter of fact (basically) have a full color of the barn, I'll resize and post it soon.

    I've gotta go eat right now though :p and I need to reshoot the barn (AGAIN) for a customer who'd like a print of it 8 feet wide on canvas :noes:
