Rectanglular to Polar

Recommended Posts

I do have issue that has nothing to do with 3rd party plugins, but with Affinity itself.


Affinity flawlessly stitched together a 17 image 360 degree panorama.  The problem arose when I selected Rectangle to Polar to make a "Global Panorama. It keeps clipping the top and bottom of the 'orb'. 



I have tried resizing the canvas prior to selecting Rectangular to Polar, but it got me a hollow ring panorama.




I've looked and can't seem to find a setting to end up with this (done in other photo editing software)

There's a nice tutorial here: http://content.photojojo.com/tutorials/create-your-own-panorama-planets/

Or another one here: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/36616/photoshop-cs6-create-the-little-planet-effect-from-a-panorama-picture/


The key is to resize your document (the image itself, not the canvas) into a square image first. The panorama image will look horribly distorted beforehand, but it will come out OK after the filter.
