AutoStitch Brings an Augmented Reality Camera to Panoramic Photography
August 31, 2012 in Photo and Video
[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Cloudburst Research has announced AutoStitch Panorama V5.0, which brings StitchGuide, a remarkable new augmented reality capability, to the popular iPhone panorama stitcher.
Augmented reality is a powerful technology to superimpose visual data onto real-world scenes. AutoStitch Panorama is the first app that brings this amazing technology to the photographer, in a way that allows immediate visualization of each photograph superimposed at high resolution onto the scene in the viewfinder. As the photographer moves the camera, the previous photos remain displayed at the locations at which they were taken with precise registration and instant tracking.
With StitchGuide, a photographer can take multiple photographs and accurately compose their final high-resolution panorama with a natural visualization of the placement of each image. The photographer can touch images in space to change how they are viewed or choose to delete a photo after it is snapped.
To create the StitchGuide capability, Cloudburst Research developed a new technology that uses not only the iPhone gyroscope to register images, but also actively tracks image locations by matching them in real time to the scene. This prevents drift while at the same time providing instantly updated registration, producing a compelling version of augmented reality that goes beyond that found in any other apps.
