The best solution I found included After Effects’ Auto-trace and Echo effect. I rarely use these features, so it was a great learning experience.

Shot Stitches #5-6 – Game of Thrones (2014)

s4e9 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Watchers On The Wall” featured some pretty impressive camera work. And mammoths.

Two of these shots made for some sweet stitchin. One is a nearly 360-degree tracking shot covering the fighting within Castle Black’s courtyard. The second stitch is a God’s-Eye-View shot showing the scope of all the battles. As always, there are two versions of each stitch, one is a rather hi res JPEG, the other is a scrollable interactive. Enjoy!
