    Big and nice work. I think some really appreciate Art school after working or Military. Few Grad students buy all that gear and use this well.


    Those moveable walls are genius. I know they are not yours,

    So is your work. In person, they must be fantasic.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks!

    Thanks Joshua,
    Your work looks great. The problem I run into with PTGUI is that since it’s a bunch of images of a wall with similar textures it doesn’t seem to automatically be able to create control points. I would have to go in and manually select each set of control points for 430 out of 437 images. Is there any way around this?

    Wonderful work, Joshua. I am encouraged to look at pano work again. I left long ago when it required a revolving, incremented leveling head for QTVR, which is long gone. Thank you for your outstanding work. You made my day!

    I have made many gigabyte size panos with Ptgui no problem. Will eventually use it on 4x5 film. And for trying an experiment to use my 5DMKIII with 100mm macro f2.8 to digitize my 4x5. Just need a copy stand that has a geared table that will move in and out, while my geared macro rail moves left/right and up/down for focus. I took some practice shots and it has potential. Will photograph at 1:1 and f2.8 to start.

    Try 2.8 for sure, but I expect better results 1 or 2 stops smaller.
