The ultimate panorama stitching tool for drone photography
DESIGNED FOR DRONE PANORAMAS
PANOVOLO has been designed from the ground up as a software for drone panorama stitching. PANOVOLO combines image location and orientation saved by your drone and state of the art image analysis algorithms for fast and reliable panorama creation.
Create beautiful panoramas from your DNG or JPEG images in seconds, use batch mode to stitch images from multiple folders automatically, and review the location and orientation of each image on a 3D map!
Reliable stitching, fast
Unlike the traditional image stitching software, which require the perfect match of “control points” in images and may fail in cases when such points are not available (for example, in the clear sky) – PANOVOLO combines the location and orientation data saved into the images by a drone with the powerful image analysis and processing which produces more reliable panorama stitching results, faster.
DNGs or JPEGs, the choice is yours
PANOVOLO can stitch panoramas from either JPEG or DNG (RAW) images. When using DNGs, 16 bit processing is used and images are saved as 16 bit TIFFs retaining the full dynamic range for post-processing. When a folder contains both JPEGs and DNGs, you can select which image type you prefer to use.
Powerful batch mode
Batch mode allows you to stitch panoramas from a set of folders using predefined settings. It runs completely automatically and saves the result panoramas in the folder you choose. You can even stitch panoramas directly from the “PANORAMA” folder on the SD card of your drone!
Straighten curved horizons automatically
When a drone camera is pointed up or down during panorama image capture, a horizon may appear as a curve in the stitched panorama image. PANOVOLO can automatically straighten such curved horizons by applying a geometric correction during stitching.
Lots of panorama types to choose from
PANOVOLO can stitch all drone panorama types, including 180°, wide angle and photo spheres, and output several panorama projections, including Spherical, Cylindrical, Rectilinear, Mercator and Stereographic (360°) – used for the “small planet” effect. Vertical and full photo sphere panoramas are also supported.
3D Map for image location and orientation review
PANOVOLO includes the 3D Map review tool that allows you to see the position and orientation of the drone and drone’s gimbal for each captured image. Use it to review where the drone was pointing to in the real world for each image in the panorama.
