The tab is intended to control  modeling images from panoramic cameras: multisensor  and fisheye.

According to camera parameters

 

Different panoramic cameras can have different parameters.

If this box is checked, panoramic parameters are set according to panoramic parameters of the active camera. As a result activation of other camera, panoramic parameters will be changed according to panoramic parameters of this camera. Manual changing panoramic parameters will be disabled.

 

If this box is not checked, panoramic parameters could be specified manually. The set parameters will not be changed during activation of different cameras.

Positions

 

See more: Positions of active camera

 

On the Show panel you can choose which images to show in the 3D Video window:

 

Camera - show one image from the active camera.  Do not show images from positions.

 

Positions - show only images from positions of the active camera in the screen division mode.

 

Cam. + Positions - show image from the active camera and images from positions of the active camera in the screen division mode

 

You can enable or disable positions for display using the Monitor. parameter.

 

Images per line

 

The number of images per line when dividing the screen is set in the box. The number of lines is calculated automatically based on the total number of images needed to display.

 


Fisheye

 

The panel controls modeling images from cameras with Fisheye lens.

In the 3D Video window, VideoCAD can simulate 2 types of image from Fisheye cameras:

 

Full 360/180 degrees image.

You can combine the full image with one fragment in PiP mode.

 

Dewarped fragment of the image with real resolution

You can display several fragments using positions with dividing the screen.

 

Full 360 deg. image

 

It may take some time to generate the full image, please wait.

 

The full fisheye image mode supports PiP mode, motion simulation, animation, lens resolution, and partial sensitivity modeling.

In the Full Image mode with PiP enabled, you can generate a combined image of the full 360/180 image with screen resolution and a superimposed fragment with real camera resolution.

 

The Real frame size option allows you to generate the full image from Fisheye cameras with real camera resolution exceeding screen resolution. Images from Fisheye cameras with resolutions of tens of megapixels can be modeled as a whole, as well as images from usual megapixel cameras.

 

Dewarped image fragment

 

By rotating the camera in the usual way, you can view images from the Fisheye camera in different directions in the 3D Video window. In this case, the field of view will be limited to 180 degrees from the main optical axis of the lens. Behind this border instead of the image will be black.

Resolution of the images will be limited by real resolution of the camera.

 

Camera presets corresponding to the fragments of the full image can be saved in position. If the Dewarped image fragment switch is marked, and the Positions switch is set to Positions or Cam. + Positions, then in screen division mode you can display many  fragments of the full Fisheye image as positions.

 

Save to camera

 

Clicking Save button, the parameters, specified on the tab, will be saved in parameters of the active camera.

Later on, if the According to camera parameters box is marked, the saved parameters will be loaded at each activation of this camera.

During modeling monitors and images for the PDF report the scene parameters saved in cameras is always used.

 

If at clicking Save button the Save to selected cameras box is marked, parameter set on the tab will be saved to all selected cameras.
