PINE will capture complete 360 degree photo-spheres and even 360 degree time-lapse videos.
How does it work?
360 degree images or also called photo-spheres are panorama images which span a 360 degree view horizontally as well as vertically. Everything around you will be captured on the image. So called “Small World” images as seen in the Use-Case Examples on the top of this page can also be created using this technique. This mode is also found on newer smartphones but with PINE you can create those images with professional high-resolution DSLR or mirror-less cameras, ready for you to combine to a stunning 360 degree picture in post-processing.
PINE will create a series of individual images starting with an image pointing upwards to the sky and ending with an image pointing down to the ground while capturing intermediate images to all directions.
This mode requires a motorized pan & tilt head.
360° Mode Features
> Set rows & columns – Specify the amount of single pictures for one 360 degree image by specifying the number of rows and how many horizontal pictures per row should be taken.
> 360° Time-Lapse – An advanced application which combines the 360 degree mode and the time-lapse mode. Multiple 360 degree images are taken one after another which can be combined to a time-lapse video sequence. For this mode feature you can use additional axis like a sliders in addition to the pan & tilt head.
Set a maximum of 2 keyframes. For the first keyframe your camera should be pointing upwards to the sky. For the second keyframe your camera should be pointing down to the ground.
Set Columns and Rows
Choose how many vertical rows you need and how many horizontal columns you like to have per row. Those values depend mostly on your camera lens wide angle characteristics.
This mode supports a Time-Lapse function as well. Basically a Time-Lapse video where each frame consists of a 360 degree image. If you only want to take one 360 degree image, set the number of frames to one.
