200 megapixels – wtf!

Check the 3D panorama of the next map on deck here.

This rendering and the previous rendering are the beginning of the a new phase of the “Lenz Project.” The photoshopped satellite image remains in the center with a refracting sphere placed over it, but now the torus is also going to be the same satellite image but completely randomized. It turns out that this randomization process allows for the torus to be as large as I want it to be without any pixilation. So now my Icarusesque limitation of rendering size is only bounded by the size of the satellite image itself. In this latest rendering, I used a satellite image of Kamchatka Peninsula and after reflecting its already near perfect symmetry, I ended up with a file that was 14,500 pixels. With this new randomization process, I was able to make the largest rendering yet- 16,000 X 12,000! Since that is 10 times the size of the maximum resolution of my 2 megapixel digital camera, that means with this new randomization process I have crossed in the land of 200 megapixel renderings (192,000,000 effective pixels!). The file is so large that I can’t even fit it on a blank CD! But that’s what DVD burners & professional printers are for. Be happy that you are looking only at roughly 16th of the image! Up next will be more randomized goodies.
