New product "Shira Warper" has just released.

The Shira Warper vividly converts fisheye content from the source screen center into the target screen as a spherical mirror distortion.
Shira Warper uses "Spherical Mirror distortion" files created by Paul Bourke.
The only drawback of the program is that the total resolution value is equal to the height of the source screen.
Therefore, the content to be converted to source should be run on the high resolution source screen and this screen should be subject to distortion.
The program is very easy to install and use.
After installation, the setup wizard is run, source, target screens and mirroring file are easily selected.

Fulldome Producer Feature

Now Shira Universe users can produce fulldome content for use as footages or for save&show again their presentations. The recording format is image sequence Jpeg or Png format.

In addition If you wish, you can save your script presentations as an image sequence. You can convert the image sequence to video using "Shira Encoder" or a third party tool (etc. Adobe After Effect).
