Yes I do so that is the secret. I still need a good tripod though. Thanks for the tip. :D Pup

Gday all!

I'm in the process of trying to get a good quality, low profile turntable. Both of the ones I've purchased from IKEA have warped to the point where they are next to useless for such a project. Also, my camera does not have appear to have a remote shutter application, but I have found a program which might allow me to use the computer to capture images without having to touch the camera once the frame is set. In no time I'll be flooding the AB.C staff with 360s of almost all of my trees (hopefully some will be deemed worthy).

Thanks!

Fly.

Well done! These 3D images are smoother than those we introduced a couple years ago at KoB. Excellent addition to the community.

Three dimensional bonsai is the future, after all http://artofbonsai.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=163 ;)

Very impressive and a boon when discussing a potensai. We can turn it to find all aspects before choosing a front.

I can see the value and agree it has nothing really to do with changing the normal approach to bonsai with front rear branches etc

Can we rotate vertically across the top of the tree or is this stage 2?

A great tool for communication in forums such as ours.

No wonder Bonsai Focus want to purchase ausbonsai!!!
Go steve! you good thing! You done good mate!

I have been lucky enough to get a few on this format. Some have generated debate and discussion some not.
I have found that you have, to have like all things Bonsai, related patience. When you succeed it is a nice feeling.

What I have found is when this was first started one of the members,
Akaruhi, made a statement we will now look differently at our trees( not sure if that is the exact words used )

That is exactly what I have found even when I stuff up a session I still have 36 pics that I can look at on slide show.
Then evaluate what is what.

So for that I would sincerely like to thank, gocny and Steven for making it possible, I now look at my trees with more eyes and see the wood :D ;) Pup

Hi Steven

I am interested in the software package you used to create the 360° view. Unless it is top secret and you would have to kill me if you told me.
