This footage is a proof of concept and a first sample from our new, custom-built camera system for shooting ultra-high resolution motion-controlled timelapse suited for full dome (Omnimax) projections.
This is a DOWNSCALED preview. The original footage resolution is 5400 x 5400 px and is also available as a 4K (4096×4096) Dome Master.
With this camera setup we’re able to capture equidistance mapping hemispherical timelapse shots of ultra high quality and extreme resolutions ranging from 4K (4096×4096) to almost 8K (7500×7500) suited for most demanding fulldome projects.
The sequences were captured during our second ever and first successful rig testing session in Poland in Jan, 2012. Unfortunately we had only 2 days to get this thing to work and the weather was pretty ugly, therefore this time the content itself is not particularly mind-blowing. However, the purpose of this test is to showcase the technology capabilities and deliver quality samples.
