In about 3 hours I was able to shoot multiple locations, 10 pano 360s,  and edit them all to produce some really great images. I'm still using  Microsoft ICE, and even the time it takes to stitch them together is  dramatically reduced. I'm really loving this new shooting mode. THANKS  DJI!

PS. I'm sorry a few of these pics show up twice. I was having trouble with the uploads yesterday. Oops. My bad. ;D

Hey, Bing
You just made sooooo great photos!
I will put this on the home page!
You are awesome! You just made 2 home pages recently!
I noticed that lots of users of our forum like sharing the pano, so would you mind sharing with us some experience to do that?
Look forward to your reply.

Yeah, I was going to make a new tutorial anyway. Thanks for the great feedback! The new Sphere Pano button is AMAZING! I was getting 4 sphere panos per battery. Glad you like the photos. Cheers.

These are awesome, Thanks for sharing. Just wish there was a way I could do this on my Mac without forking out money for third party apps.
One a side note though, I haven’t been able to figure out how to export the tiny planet from the DJI Go4 app either .

You've almost got it! However, I will take my hat off the moment you'll be able to capture/mimic/photoshop proper lighting and this blue-ish atmosphere cocoon in respect to sun position and visual laws of space. For now I'm entertained enough, you may stop manufacturing these spikey balls ...

Here's the new tutorial. Since the new Sphere Pano mode was added capturing the pictures are a breeze. This video is mostly focused on MS Ice and Photoshop. I know Grace wanted an updated video since the new DJI Update was pushed out, so here you go. Thanks for your support. ;)

Do you mean I should light it like it's an actual planet? Sunshine on one side and darkness on the other. That's not a bad idea. I could capture one in light and one in dark from the same exact location, then merge the day and night picture. As for the bluish atmosphere, that's just the sky that I captured. Very little sky has been simulated/manufactured. What do you suggest? Some lens flares or what?

I don't know what you should do, because my expectations does not have to be in sync with yours. I know, however, what will impress me really: a tiny planet with one side dark and another illuminated by sun, a planet with way, way less caricatural features, a planet with oceans, forests and mountains. Finally a planet with a layer of atmosphere, suspended in black space with stars in the background.

yeah... I think that would be above 400 ft. But thanks anyway. You should email these guys.

Such project will be definitely much more challenging, no doubt. You'll have to maintain the same position of drone during day and night photo sessions, but maximum allowed altitude should be enough to get properly balanced scale of objects deformation. Creating this artificial atmosphere cocoon will require some Photoshop tricks with masking layers etc. Whatever ...

Who's The Artist? Pardon my skepticism, but what kind of artistry is involved in this software generated image? Perhaps the object itself, that's all. It's definitely fun to create such absurdity with few mouse clicks, but I'll hardly call it art ...

No idea, the image popped up after google-ing "360 panorama" or something like that. I've used this as an example of well choosen scenery and camera position to achieve "tiny planet" effect. Still, the image doesn't reflects properties of planet, suspended in cosmic space. It's suspended in a white box and illuminated by ambient light instead. That's why I'm still not convinced, but that's my problem ...

I think it's a GREAT picture. But I think there's a lot of image manipulation going on. I'd love to know who the artist is so I can pick their brain and see what techniques they use to get these results. Just my opinion though.

I just LOVE the "what is art" discussion.  What's even better is the 'who gets to decide what is and isn't art' conversation. Wars have been started over less complicated topics.

As the actual definition states;

"the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects."

I'd say that the creation of a tiny planet image could certainly be referred to as 'art.' Of course, it greatly depends on the viewer, but that's always subjective - isn't it?

Just my 2 cents.   :-)

Nicely said. As I mentioned, however, artistic input of tiny planets creators is limited to positioning the camera above targeted landscapes. The procedure no different from taking a burst of images, good or bad, average or fascinating. With the advance of drones technology (Spark in this case) the entire series of necessary images is taken automatically with the push of a button. No creative pain involved here. Few mouse clicks later in computer environment, boom ... another ridiculous, hairy ball is made. How many these balls you would manufacture before it'll became totally boring?

But that's not the point. My skepticism is based on rather mediocre results of this computer generated imagery. Let's go back to the beginning of this entertaining discussion: create an truly fantastic tiny planet with proper sun shadowing (night and day sides), surrounded by a layer of atmosphere and suspended in deep black space with stars. This indeed will require creativeness, skills and time, but I may call it ART and eventually take my hat off ...

Great Post!  Thank you for sharing....I'm just starting to play around with this new feature in the DJI Spark (just uploaded the new firmware).    Downloaded MS Ice and already have Photoshop.  Worked great!! Thank you again.....

So then going above 400' is taboo but flying over populated area is not? Please clarify regs.
