Mirrorball unwrap
on Jun 2, 2008 at 4:43:09 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm creating HDR skydomes with a Nikon FC-9 fisheye adapter for a coolpix 8400. Its no SLR, but it works great for what I'm doing, and the price point was definately there too.

None the less, I'm looking for a utility in OS X that will unwrap a mirror ball for me. I'm on a dual boot, and HDR Shop ( has an AMAZING unwrapping utility, but it only runs on windows, and I have a seat of Photomatix for OS X to create the actual .hdr file, and re-booting all the time is a pain in the butt. Is there an application that will allow me to run HDR shop in OS X? Or does anyone know of a half decent utility to unwrap a mirror ball in OS X? I downloaded the fisheye-hemi plugin for photoshop, but it isn't doing what I would like it to, at all.

I know that photomatix can unwrap mirror balls, but hdr shop just does SO MUCH of a better job for stitching them afterwards.

Appreciate the feedback!
