Modeling images from a 360 degree camera

    For @Johannes Meissner and @Reality, there will not be any overlap when you decompose a 360deg panoramic image. 
    Just like with regular rectilinear images, the overlap happens between images taken at different locations.
    That means you need to take a bunch of 360 panoramas, break each down into a cube map (6 images) and feed all that into RC.
    Hopefully there is enough overlap between images taken from different locations to create alignment.

    I don't know why RC still isn't providing 360deg image processing.
    They already break down lidar data into a cubemap (6 images per scan location). The same could be done for 360 images.

    Hugely disappointing that it's still not a feature.

    I've found this website that allows for batching of equirectangular images to cubemaps, however, it doesn't seem to convert/work for me to actually try this on RC.

    Any progression on this at all RC? If not, I think a lot of us would like to know, instead of waiting another 5 years.

    You can add me to the list of those who would like to see this feature. In my case it would be 360 images sourced from a Matterport camera. I realize I can get an OBJ from Matterport, but I'm hoping I can improve on it through reality capture somehow. Will try the zephyr approach, and also exporting 2D stills from the various scan positions. I'll try remember to report back on how it goes.

    Please add me too. I am sure you can build a much better solution then krpano, that for the moment does the job for me. I recently thought about a scanning setup with 2 thetas close together, and i would love it, to avoid this extra step in the very near future.

    I'd like omnidirectional camera support too.
    Being forced to use a third part tool to assist with this, is ridiculous.

    It has been 6 years since it was requested and nothing has been done, what a shame.

    "Michal | CR - 6 years ago - Spherical images will be supported vry soon. Hopefully in next release."

    First reply in this thread hasn't aged well haha.

    How is this coming along? I'm baffled how this still isn't supported after all these years, when it's surely one of the most requested features. Metashape, Zephyr etc have supported spherical cameras forever.
