Gnomon Workshop: Digital Sets 4: 3D Image-Based Terrain Combining Spherical Imagery and DEMS
In this continuation of the Digital Sets series, visual effects designer Eric Hanson illustrates a unique and powerful method to capture and re-create natural landscapes within a 3D environment. Integrating disparate technologies such as spherical panoramic photography, digital elevation models, high-dynamic range imagery, and global positioning, Eric is able to provide a reasonable substitute to nodal pan motion picture shooting, with the added ability to modify and enhance the landscape with the rich array of 3D techniques available within Maya. Various case studies are shown and provided on the DVD for the viewer to use in their own projects.
Over 4 hours of lecture.

Hello. I noticed your blog title, “%BLOGTITLE%” does not really reflect the content of your web site. When writing your blog title, do you think it’s best to write it for SEO or for your audience? This is one thing I’ve been struggling with due to the fact I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.
Hey! My name is %NAME% and I really just wanted to say your website rocks! It really is funny due to the fact I use to have a website that virtually had an identical website url: %BLOGURL% mine was only a few characters different. Anyhow, I’m a big supporter of your website and if you at any time want a guest write-up please email me at: %EMAIL%. I love writing!
Searching reddit.com I noticed your web site bookmarked as: %BLOGTITLE%. Now I am assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a bunch of targeted traffic? I’ve been thinking of doing some book-marking for a few of my websites but wasn’t certain if it would produce any positive results. Many thanks.
Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
I’m starting a new internet website directory and was wanting to know if I can submit your blog? I’m trying to grow my directory slowly by hand so that it retains good quality. I’ll make sure and put your website in the best category and I’ll additionally use, “%BLOGTITLE%” as your anchor text. Please make sure to let me know if this is okay with you by emailing me at: %EMAIL%. Thankyou
Hiya. Sorry to bother you but I happened to run across your blog and noticed you’re using the exact same template as me. The only issue is on my blog, I’m battling to get the layout looking like yours. Would you mind emailing me at: %EMAIL% so I can get this figured out. By the way I have bookmarked your web site: %BLOGURL% and will be visiting often. Thanks!!
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
