PTGui Tutorials

This is video three out of a series of eight that explain how to create completely immersive panoramic photographs. In this video I explain how to import your photos into PTGui and stitch them together into a spherical 360×180 equirectangular photograph.

This is video five out of eight tutorials explaining how to create fully immersive panoramic photographs. In this tutorial I revisit the nadir photograph. After processing the photographs through PTGui and Pano2QTVR, the nadir photograph is unwarped and easier to finish editing in Photoshop.
