A small collection of buildings, fences, walls, sculptures and old cars where selected in Vilnius city. Each was photographed from different angles - each object would have from 20 to 100 of shots. Next step was to generate a 3d model - photos were loaded to photogrametry software and a point cloud was generated. Next a 3d mesh from a point cloud was generated and then photos where reprojected on to newly created model to make a texture. All models where combined in a 3d animation software where some CG vegetation and atmosphere was added.
The planet Earth has proven to be too limiting for our awesome community of panorama photographers. We're getting an increasing number of submissions that depict locations either not on Earth (like Mars, the Moon, and Outer Space in general) or do not realistically represent a geographic location on Earth (either because they have too many special effects or are computer generated) and hence don't strictly qualify for our Panoramic World project.But many of these panoramas are extremely beautiful or popular of both.So, in order to accommodate our esteemed photographers and the huge audience that they attract to 360Cities with their panoramas, we've created a new section (we call it an "area") called "Out of this World" for panoramas like these.Don't let the fact that these panoramas are being placed at the Earth's South Pole fool you - we had to put them somewhere in order not to interfere with our Panoramic World.Welcome aboard on a journey "Out of this World".
