In this course, we will learn how to use Stitcher to create panoramic images. Stitcher comes with many tools built to make the panorama creation process quick and easy. In only a few minutes, we will be able to take fisheye photographs and render a seamless, 360-degree panorama. We'll begin this project by learning how to import, stitch, and render images in the user interface. From there, we will learn the various settings we have to control our render quality and how to get the best possible output. Next we'll learn about the editing tools of Stitcher, such as Manual Stitch, Alignment, Stencils, PSD Stencils and Custom Nadir. We will also learn how to create HDR panoramas. We'll end by learning how we can use the advanced output features of QuickTime VR in Stitcher to create virtual tours and links between QuickTime panorama movies. This series of lessons will illustrate how Stitcher can be used to quickly create large-dimension images and cylindrical, cubical, or spherical panoramas. Software required: Stitcher Unlimited 2009 and up.
