The Simplest Panorama Ever
Have you ever wanted to create simple panoramic shots with no built-in stabilization utilizing only simple command-line tools (FFmpeg and ImageMagick)? No? Well I wanted to, and I did. Here's how I did it:
# 1: Take a video and turn a full 360° # 2: Crop the video to two columns near the center; assumes 1920x1080 ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -filter:v "crop=2:1080:960:0" output.mp4 # 3: Convert the cropped video frames to bitmaps; assumes 60 FPS ffmpeg -i output.mp4 -r 60/1 outframes/%04d.bmp # 4: Append each bitmap image horizontally to create the panorama convert +append outframes/* panorama.png
Now you just need the stability of a robot.
