    Automatic skydomes from google street view. :-D

    Just came across this while working on something in unity.

    It's automatic skydomes from google street view!,-1.82622

    I haven't worked out how to use them in lightwave yet, so any info will be most appreciated. Or maybe share any good ones you find here?

    Wow. That is just super cool. I don't know how useful it is for Lightwave but it is a lot of fun to play with.

    Those are actually what are called "Little Planet" projections, otherwise known as Stereographic Projections. Usually, they don't cover the zenith; only the nadir and perhaps 120° from it. One can obtain 360° x 180° Little Planet projections, where the image is not cropped to rectilinear and the outer rim is the zenith. These full-frame images, with a corresponding clip map, could then be used on the inside of spheres. Anything cropped to square generally isn't useable for our needs.
