How is this done? (Panoramic image)

P: n/a

I just came across this "pan-able" photo/movie of the Rice testimony
before the 9/11 commission:

http://www.nytimes.com/packages/html...tvr_popup.html

I've never seen this sort of interactive movie before. How does
one do it? What kind of camera/photograph does one need to do this
sort of thing?

Thanks!

All right, and I don't see that the zoom capability has anything to do with
the camera. AFAICT, it's a feature built into Quicktime. So produce your
film using Quicktime's latest software, embed it in your web page, and
that's all there is to it.

It's QuickTime VR. See <http://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtvr/>

No special camera is needed, although I've seen mirror attachments for
ordinary cameras. You point them straight up, and the mirror takes a 360
degree shot.

More often, they're done by taking several shots, each from a different
angle, and stitching them together with authoring software. This is best
done with a tripod - there are mounting attachments that have marks or even
notches to help with precise positioning.
