You're welcome.  You're right in that planning out the basics of how you are going to render the mural is crucial to sort out early.  A change of direction midway through could mean a lot of reworking/rearranging. It's an interesting and challenging concept to visualise and I'm sure everyone will be interested in following its progress.

Maybe they'd like to make the finished image available via something like http://gigapan.com/ for some extra exposure of the museum?  .. or publish a zoomable version of it on their own website?

I can always give them a hint in that direction. Might be a good idea.

After some initial mishaps (not fitting images, probably a small mistake somewhere again), I managed to get it working. Saved the 'individual panorama PTGUI project' for final renders. Lined the individuals up in PS and it worked flawlessly! Terrific! Two bigger tests are now rendering (4200x2527), see what they do...


As I have to fill about 80m of wall, I have to go round twice, with two different terrain bases or it will be too much the same. I have to figure out a way to fit those two together, although a small change is not too bad, there's a gap in the wall there anyway.

This is a very exciting and cool project, I'm thrilled to see it being tackled in TG. And to see 2 of this communities masterminds/evil geniuses focusing formidable mental resources on it, that's quite important and gratifying. Can't wait to see how this progresses, it's an epic task!

One step further, slowly getting some shapes... the matching is quite perfect, only in some cloud there's a tiny color difference between renders.

It will be 82 meters by 2.8 high, so I can't wait to see it in real life. But it'll need a lot of fine detail and a big render!

Hope for you it will survive more than the Battle, but i would like to see it for real

When it is finally printed and mounted, would like to see a photo of it with you standing beside it.
