I'm looking for software libraries or downloadable software (preferably the former) that can take an input video, and output a panoramic image. For example, something that allows you to stand in one place, turn around taking a video, and then get a massive stitched jpeg. [more inside]
I'm thinking of buying a camcorder. My requirements are slightly unusual: I would like one that does all the "bells and whistles" stuff (image stabilisation, auto light balance, H.264 compression etc). But I also want to be able to turn off all the clever stuff and access the "raw" video. Any recommendations? Hard disk/SD recording is a must, high definition would be good.
Powerpoint and video - how hard can it be? Suggestions for codecs or video formats that will work, please...
I have a presentation which includes a number of videos. They don't play. I am assuming this is a codec problem - but as the videos are mpeg-2 maybe this isn't the case (I thought that by going for an old codec they were more likely to work). PowerPoint 2007, XP. I have admin rights so can install extra codecs, and I have linux with ffmpeg/mplayer so I can convert the videos. What should I do?
What video formats work well in presentations? Advice on codecs, presentation software and general tips and tricks sought. Linux and/or WIndows. [more inside]
