What does this
have to do with video?
Though I make
panoramas just for fun, as with digital stills, panorams can be useful
in travel videos. Panorama stills provide an opportunity to
add movement to a still sequence, and to allow post-production pans
to an extent that isn't possible with video.
Here's a title sequence that was assembled by stitching together a
series of panoramic stills of the earth to produce a rotating globe
The clip was produced by taking several copies of the stitched
clip and laying them end to end on the timeline in Premiere Pro.
A little gaussian blur was added. The animated "Travelers" was
produced in Ulead Cool 3D Edit. The "write on"
effect for "A Video
Journal" was done with a gradient wipe mask, created in
Photoshop and composited in Premiere Pro. The moving globes
were animated on the Premiere timeline with the Lens Flare filter
applied. The final sequence was composited in Premiere Pro.
The globes and panoramic still (and lots of other amazing
full-resolution stills and video) are available from NASA at:
