Another project after Halo Solstice is this nifty app I call Vivid 360. What it does basically is let you choose a center point and set the radius and it will make a 360 circle around it. Nifty for video projects and 360° panorama pictures!
Vivid 360 cannot just do a 360° fly-around but also turn itself in the same angle at a precise spot 360° at a specific rate. Perfect for making 360° Images or Panorama Images!
I use Vivid 360 in synchronization with Fraps to capture the images. Fraps has a feature to capture images in a certain invterval. If you set the interval the same as the one from Vivid 360, it will turn the camera and capture the image automatically.
Afterwards I use AutoStitch to stitch my images together.
