“The AVP Pro and Giga software are powerful and complex image stitching applications. This class, taught by Geoff Smith at Abel Cine New York, provided a hands on introduction to the concepts behind stitching, the stitching process and software. Because the class participants had a wide range of experience with stitching (some of us were new and some were deep into VR R&D), we were treated to a wide ranging discussion of stitching processes, theory and application. Geoff kept the class moving, but also provided individual attention as we worked to assimilate what he was teaching.”
