Cliplets – Cinemagraph for PC

So, I was looking for an app that allows me to create Cinemagraphs on PC and while I was searching, I came across this page of Microsoft:

  • Link – Cliplets Project

It is an app created for Desktop users, that allows them to create Cinemagraph easily. I love it!

also,

Microsoft Research Cliplets is an interactive app that gives users the power to create “Cliplets” — a type of imagery that sits between stills and video, including imagery such as video textures and “cinemagraphs”. The app provides a simple, yet expressive way to mix static and dynamic elements from a video clip.

Microsoft Releases its Hyperlapse App

I’ve posted before about Hyperlapse and how it is working.. Great technology with creative output if used properly.

After Instagram had released their Hyperlapse app, Microsoft now has released their own app too which works with Android, Windows Phone and Windows PC.

[How-to] Preview RAW Straight from Windows Explorer

كنت أبحث عن حل لعرض ملفات الـ RAW على الويندوز بدلاً من فتحها واحده تلو الأخرى على الفوتوشوب للمعاينة، وجدت هذا الحل من Windows لعرض ملفات الـ RAW مباشرة من المجلد دون الحاجه الى فتحها في برنامج الفوتوشوب او الـ Lightroom

Fellow photographers, rejoice! After a quick codec pack download, those of you running Windows 7 or Vista should be able to preview RAW files straight from Windows Explorer.

Before:

After:

RAWFiles-Preview

Download the codec supports 64bit and 32bit

Photosynth vs. AutoStitch – App Recommendation

I have been using Photosynth for so long; I fell in love with it! Suddenly, AutoStitch came in and stole my heart.

Here is a comparison between these two great apps.

Photosynth:

Update 30/12/2012

From the Panoramas above, Autostitch is FAR better than Photosynth in Quality; BUT so sad Autostitch limits you to 40 photos, while Photosynth doesn’t give you that limit. So for creating Tiny Planets, you need more than 40 photos for a 360-View, hence, I recommend Photosynth in that case.

Here is my Profile in Photosynth website, to see other Panoramas I shot during my travels:

Here is a Panorama that I shot earlier this morning, using AutoStitch:

Happy shooting! :)

Project – Parts Of Scotland in 360 View!

My last vacation was to spend 10 days in UK, 8 of them in Scotland.

I thought of starting a project that I shoot 360 view for things I loved in Scotland; to be honest I loved everything! Sadly, I didn’t make too many 3D’s.

Anyways, you can visit my profile on Photosynth to view all 360 views:

كانت رحلتي الأخيرة إلى سكوتلاندا – قررت أصوّر صور بانوراميّة (بزاوية 360 درجة) لأفضل المناظر التي شاهدتها، سواء كانت معمارية او طبيعية!

بملفي الشخصي في موقع Photosynth ستجدون الصور كاملة، للأسف لم ألتقط الكثير. لكن أتمنى أن تعجبكم :-)

Enjoy :-)
