How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

Gave that a try. I have no problem taking the photos around the 'equator', so to speak, but when I look up or down and continue rotating, I don't follow a 'latitude'. I start rotating around a diagonal 'equator'. I don't know if that makes sense. Is there a way to work around that? I'd assume so if ...

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

Okay, and what's the best method for taking shots of the top and bottom to complete the fully spherical view?

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

But when you're exporting the images via SE, there is no option for overlap, or for HFOV. You just have the resolution. For the latter, I assume FOV will be what you set in your main settings, but I can't see a way to force an overlap of images with the built in exporter. EDIT: So apparently the FOV...

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

Another method is to take screenshots of the whole scene and stitch them together using Hugin Cons:  A little more time consuming. Pros:  Free software, variety of projection modes, very high resolution output, no water marks. Lots of options, but I have no idea what to do with them. I don't know t...

How to make 360° panoramas in Space Engine

Gave this a try, but I'm still getting the watermark on the image. Tried looking for other free tools, but I can't seem to find any. Ended up trying to download one of the commercial programs through TPB, but I was unable to stitch the images. Something about requiring control points to help the pro...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Quick update on the issue that I had. Looks like the bug only happens in an add-on galaxy, but never outside of it. Removed it, since I have no use for it anyway.

Yeah, after playing around with it for a bit, things look decent. High quality, barely noticeable performance impact, if any. The only issue is that you can't hide the SE interface like you can with the built in video capture tools.

HarbingerDawn's Modding Bazaar

Harb, I don't suppose the Homeworld ships are still compatible? The installation instructions don't seem to make sense. There are no folders to merge to when extracting the .zip files to the SE directory, and even if I try to manually look for what I think is the right place, the folder name might n...

What would be the limiting factor? The CPU or the GPU? Running on a 6500 and GTX1080 with 16 gigs of RAM.

I just remembered something now. Nvidia has this ShadowPlay thing. I'm not entirely sure how it works, and I haven't tried it yet as I'm currently out of the country, but from what I understand, the video card can perform high quality recordings with no more than 5% to 10% reduction in performance. ...

So if the files still have a 4 gig limitation, do the programs automatically create new files when the limit is hit, to allow you to later perform lossless compression and stitch them together seamlessly?

I'll look into that sometime in the next couple of days then. Cheers.

Also, do people who still use FAT32 even have compatible hardware for SE?

So what settings would you choose in you video captures to keep your FPS up while recording? I seem to have trouble using the uncompressed format on a 6500K and GTX1080 with high quality graphics settings. Or perhaps the built-in recorder is not as good as third party software? Recommendations? I'm ...

What's your favourite music in SE?

I absolutely love the soundtrack. However, the style I've been more used to for space-related music is more on the Indian stringed instrument side. Notable examples would be several tracks from the Homeworld series, and also Stargate: Universe, especially the very first opening scene. Problem is, it...
