Excellent Panoramic.

Great detail and your 3D landscaping is the best I have seen with SU Podium.

regards,
Nat

Whoa - the distortion on this panorama is really messing with my eyes. I wonder if reducing the field of view with the camera would help? What is it set at? If it's at 35 degrees, maybe try reducing it?

Did you use the reset tilt function?

The render and detail are just excellent. The vegetation is awesome, but the Panorama isn't helping.

All I do is zoom in a bit until the edge distortion disappears and the image rotates solely around the POV, rather than looking like it is on a ribbon and all crazy like you describe. Reset tilt, I always use.

But, what would you say a desireable FOV would be? I tend to hover between 45 and 65 mm simply because that is close to a 1:1 ratio where everything resembles that of the naked eye. But if the setting should be different for a panorama render, what would I try? All my panoramas are the same. Perhaps with the close proximity of the context of the model it appears different than the others.

I never use an FoV wider than 45 degrees, unless I have to render a very small space. 35 degrees is the most natural. Anything wider than 45 degrees can get too distorted, but for interiors it's difficult.

I would recommend 35 degrees for exteriors, wider for interiors. When the distance between the camera and model is not very big, distortion becomes much more of an issue.

Great render.  I really love how the hillside came out with the ground cover.  I didn't find the rendering too obtrusive with regards to FOV, but everyone's eyes are different.
