Re-Orient "Sphere" for Equirectangular images

Recommended Posts



I posted this feature request a while ago on Facebook and I was asked to post this here in the right place.


I am very happy with the ability to retouch quickly 360° OpenEXR images in Affinity Photo now, for example to remove the tripod. For this I am using the Live Projection function.


At times a stitched equirectangular image has not a leveled horizon or the most interesting part of the image is not inftont of the initial position.


For video (plugin for FCPX) there is a plugin from dashwood3D.com that is called re-orient sphere, Autodesk flame has this function as well. Here it is called Map Convert. in Foundry´s Nuke its called Spherical Transform. And there is Skybox (Mettle)






I guess with the Live Projection this functionality actually already exists in Affinity Photo. I could think of a wireframe overlay in the Live Projection, where I can rotate "texture" inside the sphere for example. Or there could be a filter like the Affine filter in the Distort menu in the 2:1 equirectangular view. There I could simply "turn" the 360 image in the desired direction.




Best regards
