Nice mountain range!

Thanks, Jamar. That's the nose of El Capitan at the right edge of the frame, and my shadow at the lower left.

Well ship about panoramas... If I only lived in that country of yours... You have a Huge amount and quality of landscapes in the US, like this photo for instance, now if one do a 360 panorama in a place like that, you can remember the place just if as you were there again. And you don't need to print and glue it, you can make it digitally, with a program. I use arcsoft panorama maker 3.0 and export it to .mov file

Well the result is just about what you see in this link: http://www.360portugal.com/Distritos.QTVR/Parques_Naturais.VR/Serra_da_Estrela/PenhasDouradasFS.html

This is a commercial site and not made by me, but my panoramas if well done are just like that one,

You Could do the same all over those amazing landscapes you have in your homeland

Now just read what I just thougt!!

Why not mixing the panorama reality with the 3D reality

If one can make an anagliph out of a 360 panorama, and I think it could be done. One would have an anagliph of a landscape all around, then export it o a .mov file and see with quicktime

Can you just imagine the potential? I don't know if anyone remebered this, but I've never seen one ever.

Ok, I just found a 360 anaglyph on the net, and exported it to .mov file with the software I told you. Now I have a 360 anaglyph but I don't have the special glasses to see if it works.

If you send me you email adress I could send the mov file so that you see if it works, although it's a rather large file (over 70 Mb)

AMAZING! I just managed to use the croos eyed method, it allows to see much wider pictures than the parallel eye method, though it's a lot more unconfortable for the eyes

I'm now able to use both methods at will

By the way you should visit this link about 360 anaglyphs: http://www.stereomaker.net/panorama/panoramae.htm

Thanks, Vasco. I already have a link to Muttyan's home page, but I've never looked at his stereo panoramas. My default browser is Mozilla Firefox, which is better than IE for most applications, but it doesn't work with Muttyan's panorama movies, even with active java scripting turned on. IE, on the other hand, works just fine. I guess I just have to try those stereo panorama movies myself.

Thanks, J.Mackaay. That little fence isn't much. It's about a 4,000 foot (1200 meter) drop to the valley floor.
