Photo stitcher update, plus short links

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

First I must apologise for the lack of updates. All I can say is that I’ve been very busy. With that in mind, I am happy to announce two updates. First, and most important, is a new version of the CleVR Stitcher. I know that a lot of people have been having problem with poor stitching of some images. I’ve been having the same problems. Anyhow, I’m happy to say that this update greatly improves stitch quality. This is mainly down to improvements in focal length estimation and initial image warping. It’s amazing the difference that makes. I’ve also tweaked some thresholds and values to improve stitching in other ways. Let me know if it works for you.

In other matters, we now have short links implemented, using the domain clvr.eu. Just look for the link on the panorama page. For example, see http://clvr.eu/9ny for an Apollo 11 panorama. These links are perfect for sharing your panoramas on Twitter. Once again, let me know what you think.
