Alain’s talk will focus on 3D panoramic imaging, including 3D 360º panoramas. Welcome to the 3rd dimension. We have all seem some people calling 360º panoramas as 3D photography, well, the reality is that 360º panoramas are 360º panoramas, no more, no less. To call it 3D, a new dimension needs to be added and Alain Hamblenne will give us a lesson on how to make them. Alain will present the processing workflow, the settings that need a special attention and some “tricks” by illustrating his talk with a few samples of his own work in the field of 3D anaglyph 360º panoramas.
