How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

Your GPU is the same as mine, except mine has more VRAM, we have the same amount of regular RAM (except my OS only sees 3.25 GB and yours sees 2 GB), but your CPU is a lot more powerful than mine, I have a quad core Q6600

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

Yeah, cylindrical is pretty easy, too easy. I wanted to make things hard on myself so I decided to try a Panorama with the 3D Anaglyph settings turned on. I knew the sky-boxes and cylindrical methods were not possible with this setting turned on, so I had to take around 40 screen shots and stitch t...

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

I figured out I had to press the "Try Pro version" button rather than use it in trial mode to be able to use more than 4 nodes. So I made this panorama of TRAPPIST-1f. http://i.imgur.com/I1nZXqh.jpg Are those towers and monoliths?  Which version of the Trappist-1 add on are you using?  Mi...

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

7609 But when you're exporting the images via SE, there is no option for overlap Ok, I I think see the confusion.   For this method you don't want to use the exporter.  You're not taking images of 6 sides of a cube.  All you're doing is exploring in regular planetarium mode and taking screenshots (...

That's a really good filter for emission nebulae too! :)

7890  is it a bad idea to be using the internet while running SE at the same time? Depends on whether you're running all those apps on the same hard drive. SE does not use an internet connection, but it does read and write some data from the hard drive, as do web browsers, so if they're all running...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

No matter how you look at it, if AI happens it will solve all problems, either by actually solving them or killing everyone.  Win-win really I like the way you think lol- either way the universe wins. AI has to be better than humanity because humanity is too addicted to greed and power (see my supe...

General global warming / climate chage discussion

I don't see any good reason to make the world more populous outside of what the religious fanatics say- and I tend to think oppositely of them so that's a no go :P  More people= worse for the environment, more pollution, higher stress levels, etc. One other thing we didn't address is the impact of p...

History of SpaceEngine

Maybe it's a time to upgrade the motherboard? I know this also mean upgrade CPU and RAM, but anyway... Question, is it a bad idea to be using the internet while running SE at the same time?  I get vast slow downs in surfing when I run them together, of course I use three different browsers at the s...

Science and Astronomy Questions

haha thanks, I was looking around for some menu option to do that :P  Does that setting get saved or does it always default back to 45 degrees after restart? One other thing with respect to navigation.  If I'm on a planet and want to scan around the horizon is there a way to keep the horizon straigh...

My SE settings

I set the resolution to 800x600 and turned sounds off (by setting volume to 0).  All other settings are at default besides Graphics settings which are as follows

Science and Astronomy Questions

There are some images of exoplanets out there- but they look look only slightly bigger than little dots- then again, that's all Pluto was to us for a long time.

BTW how do I zoom in on planet landscapes in SE? Or in general, how do I change the angle of view?  The default is 45 degrees I believe.

TRAPPIST-1

The new article  is out, with measurement of masses of all planets using combined Kepler and Spitzer data. Outer planets became much less massive then thought before. Planet h is just 7 masses of Ganymede - smaller than Mars (although error is 100%). Densities of all outer planets are less than 2, ...
