I'm a software developer, so I don't understand very much about photography.
My approach is the next: I'm trying to take a panorama about sticky images, then I make it 2:1 with margins and spherize it to see it in a sphere texture with my software.
So, step by step, what I do is:
1.- I take a picture like this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cd/View_from_connors_hill_panorama.jpg
2.- Then what I do, is adding margines to make it 2:1, for instance:
3.- Then I go to Photoshop > Filter > Distortion > Spherize > +100% and I get:
which concerns me about the junction between the end and the beginning, but I proceed to put it inside my software on a texture:
some parts of the pictures are ok:
but the junction is really awkward:
I don't mean that the junction is not continued, I mean about the beginning and the end which are not "spherized"
am I wrong with the projections? am I choosing another kind of spherical ??
Thank you very much in advance for your time.
