Background for a Quicktime Panoramic
show user profile  Jock
I'm not quite sure what the correct terminolgy is but hopefully people know what i mean when i say quicktime Panoramics, where you convert your 3dmax camera to a 360d camera, you upload it into a specific program and you end up with a nice little quicktime interactive file where the user can look around 360d and see what their new room etc will look like.

At the moment I have a couple of generic backgrounds that seem to work but what i'd like to do is be able to allow clients to look out from their new conservatory/extension and see their own garden. Does anyone know exactly how i would actually do such a thing.

My initial off the cuff gues would be i stand at a specific spot where the new extension would be, then take a series of photos working my way round so youd get say 9 photos at say 20d from left to right. If my guess is correct, how would you actually put them together to make one photo, a lot of photoshop work?

Also i assume youd really need a tripd to pull it off correctly or could you do a half decent job doing it hand held?

Sort of related, sort of not, but see if you wanted to do the exact same but for a real house, so no max invloved, what would be required from a camera point of view. Is it something you could pull off with a normal camera and a whole lot of photos or would you need some expensive camera to do the job?
