No worries, Mistika VR is camera-agnostic software, meaning it can essentially work with any camera rig out there. If you could not find the preset in the Camera Preset Library, simply reach out to our Support Team and they will create a preset for you completely free of charge.
Please send test footage together with lens specification through our Support Portal.
The suitable scene for the calibration:
– Nothing and nobody close to the camera, at least 3 meters
– A street with buildings and trees, squares, parking lots
– Large halls, like sports venues, with a structured ceiling, with a camera in the open
– Public garage with no cars or columns at less than 3 meters
If a calibration shot cannot be obtained, choose the shot most fitting the above.
Optional, especially convenient for cameras with little overlap: Ask for a static scene, and two shots, second with the rig rotated half its camera spacing: Means if they are 4 cameras at the horizon at 90 degrees, rotate the rig 45 degrees. This provides an apparent doubling of a number of cameras and produces better lens distortion detection.
Notice that if a camera allows setting the image ratio at different values, like GoPro that can record both 4:3 and 16:9, settings for both resolutions may be needed. Recording a larger image is always better but some customers used a 16:9 ratio apparently.
