I experimented with this about 5 years ago... It's the only object I've done that was fixed to the ground. Luckily, there were a number of street furniture items (bollards, different coloured slabs) etc, that I was able to work out a pretty accurate position for each of the shots... I think, if I remember correctly, I had a problem with just 2 shots because of street furniture actually getting in the way of the tripod or shot - but that was a better price to pay than having the other shots taken with less precision. http://www.digital-solutions.co.uk/vr/bw.html You can tell how old the movie is - At the time, 512kb was a lot for people to download! The statue btw, is larger than life size... Not quite the statue of liberty... That's another funny thing isn't it - We get examples here of foggy Seattle parks in the morning that look fantastic (try taking a photo in a park in the UK and you'll either get arrested, beaten up, or make the local papers, thanks to the political correctness brigade....) It's amazing to VR's of other worldly places - but I'm struggling to think of ANYTHING worth taking in my local area (anyone who has been or even heard of Walsall will know what I mean)..... I was almost escorted from the outside of Walsall's new "futuristic" bus terminal (I say futuristic, the roof looks like a UFO from above...). I was actually taking some photos of the front of the Church (which the bus terminal almost invades - much too close), and I was asked to leave the whole area.. Luckily, the guys boss told him to stop wasting his (and my) time.. But that's what we're finding here - getting permission is incredibly difficult, you think you're on 'public' property, then you find it's actually private, and very camera shy... Probably thanks to the culture we have now of everyone fearing a lawsuit if you so much as fart within 10 feet of anyone. Anyone else have any experiences with over-zealous jobsworths trying to prevent photography in public places?

I want to make an interactive feature about objects that are too big to put on a turntable, beside the fact they are fixed to the ground. I saw some experiments by moving the camera position around the object and making a object movie out of that. Does anyone has ideas or experience how to find proper positions so that the movie turns out as smooth as possible. The object can have the size of a person, not much bigger. No, and I dont want to invest in these time freeze cameras ;-) cheers Sven _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
