Has anyone done video stitching in openCV for 360 videos?

asked 2016-07-03 03:26:46 -0500

I have successfully implemented stitching for two video streams side by side, but I am having a hard time figuring out if its possible to stitching 6 video streams together for creating 360/VR films.

ANyone with any experience here ?

You're going to have to sort of do this from scratch. Assuming your cameras are solidly fixed, so the relationship doesn't change, you can do it pretty easily. Find the registration between the cameras by looking where they overlap and matching feature points.

The hard part is finding the warp from each of the six images to the final frame. That sort of advice is far to particular to your format and cameras for us to help with.

You can use the Image Blenders from the stitching module to help out.

Got it ! yea finding the warp is tough and changes every time a different rig is used. I'll try to figure it out bit by bit, thanks !

Out of curiosity, did you manage to get the stitching working? I'm trying to do the very same thing, but the warper is creating very weird results...
