Note on om_sphere2dome

As introduced in yesterday’s post, you can download my Mac command line tools, om_sphere2dome to help convert Modo spherical projection images to fulldome domemaster images.

For reference, I’ll here post the tool’s help info, so you can see its feature set more easily.

poly@omino-8999 domework: om_sphere2dome --help


This command line tool transforms a spherically-projected
image file to a Domemaster image file (180 degree fisheye).
The source image is a 2:1 aspect ratio equirectangular
projection, as produced by Modo's spherical camera. The
center square is extracted and transformed.

See http://omino.com/pixelblog/2015/03/03/modo-for-fulldome-
