Slovenia & Croatia spherical panorama pack in Blender Cloud

Last year we went on holiday to Slovenia & Croatia (mentioned here in chronological order of visiting) and made a set of 360°x180° panorama photos. They are available as high dynamic range EXR files on Blender Cloud.

Skyfill v1.1 released

Version v1.1 of Skyfill has been released. The most important improvement is that it now also supports full-white as fill colour for the sky.

Skyfill released!

Most drones (UAVs) cannot look straight up to photograph the sky above them. As a result, spherical panoramas made with drones tend to have a gap in the sky. Some drones, like my DJI Mavic 2, can fill in this gap automatically while generating a preview.

FFmpeg and DJI D-Log on the Mavic 2 Pro

To properly see a video recorded with a DJI Mavic 2 Pro in D-log colours, it needs conversion. This can be done with the cube file provided by DJI. Such cube files contain the lookup table (LUT) to turn the bland colours into proper ones when viewing with a run-of-the-mill viewer like MPlayer, VLC, Windows Media Player, etc.

Panoramas: two terraces

UPDATE 2019: The panoramas are currently broken, I’ll get around to fix it some time in the future. I just put two new 360/180 degree panoramas online, of places very well suited for an exquisite dinner.
