Would like to show you a new plugin for C4D we have been developing for some time now, and which is almost finished (will be in the next few days).
This is part of the set of tools that we, at Navegar Foundation, are developing directed at digital planetarium (or immersive cinemas or whatever you might decide call them) content producers.

[b]WFCam4D is basically a post effect rendering plugin that lets you render directly in fisheye, panoramic or several other projections. Namely: [/b][b]-Azimuthal Equidistant (Fisheye)[/b] [b]-Azimuthal Equidistant off-axis (Fisheye-offaxis)[/b] [b]-Aitoff[/b] [b]-Hammer-Aitoff[/b] [b]-Stereographic[/b] [b]-Orthographic[/b] [b]-Vertical Perspective[/b] [b]-Cylindrical (Panoramic) Equal Area, Equiditant, Center.[/b] This is usefull for those who need to produce and project allsky video (180x360) for example, produce allsky lightdomes or panoramas (etc). I think many of you will find this usefull. Some images and videos:
Fisheye projection, 180º
[/b]Fisheye projection, 360º [img]http://luis.multimeios.pt/old/wfcam4d/sponza_WFCam4DAzEq360.jpg[/img] Aitoff (360º) [img]http://luis.multimeios.pt/old/wfcam4d/sponza_WFCam4DAitoff.jpg[/img] Cylindrical Equidistant (panoramic, 180ºx360º)
Videos (techsmith codec):
1 - Simple plugin functionality (~6.5MB avi)
2 - 5 sec animation of image number one (fisheye projection)
Will give more information in the next days, as we get this ready.
