Integrating Technology for Dome Production

I have been working with our animation adjunct faculty, J. Craig Tompkins, on integrating animation into high resolution spherical photography. As of last weekend, we have made two pieces of technology work to further our process: the Organic Motion Markerless Motion Capture System and our new Ladybug 3 spherical camera.


For our first project, we are creating an intro to the dome video for all of our visitors to the Digital Dome @ IAIA to enjoy. This week we will take a gigapixel spherical image of our campus plaza then integrate the mocap animation.
