I have 4 identical cameras orientated on a tripod covering a 180 degree vertical field of view. The setup revolves using a motor and I want to create a 360 degree panorama.
Vertically, there is very little overlap so I create a stitch template using Hugin to stitch the 4 cameras vertically for 1 direction. This is fine as their positions are fixed.
However, there is error in the motor so I can't do a template horizontally. I can stitch my cameras close to the centre horizontally, but the lenses pointing to the floor and ceiling fail to stitch due to featureless surfaces.
Is there a way I can use the horizontal stitch of the middle cameras to stitch each row of the panorama. Then stitch them vertically using my template?
