I'm testing out the new free iPhone app, UScapeit.
UScapeit lets you take a video and then transforms it into a 360 degree view.
Here's the best: Stop and Shop 360 UScapeit Panorama
This app is different from the 360 Panorama App I've been using in that it uses video to capture the image, instead of a combined mosaic of photos.
My first few attempts didn't turn out so well.
It's because I was spinning the camera around too fast. You've got to take 30-40 seconds to shoot your video of the scene. Also, you need to keep the phone on the same vertical axis as you shoot.
I asked them about this and UScape.it replied:
Regarding the “slow” question: the app is pulling individual frames from the video to build the panorama. Our eyes fool us with video because a group of frames look fine and clear—but when you isolate out individual frames, those frames are blurry. If you were to time your captures on 360 and other panorama apps, you’ll most likely find that those captures take even longer than the 30 seconds that we recommend for UScapeit captures.I think the quality is very good. I'll be doing more testing.
