Shooting Stereoscopic 360s

Does anyone have any useful information or guides, for shooting stereoscopic 360s with a fisheye and SLR camera?

In particular, I would like to use this technique to make a depth map like in this example:

Hi
There's a facebook group on subject: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3dstereopanoramas/

Basically shooting stereo with one camera is easy, you need to shift base plate on your pano head about 2-2.5cm left then shoot first pano. Then shift to 2-2.5cm right for second. 4-5cm stereo base is good and safe value for interior panos. See orange marks on this image below:



There is geometry-based evidence on how this approach works, I won't post it here *g*

Then you stitch two panoramas separately and align them by direction and horizon. Best done in ptgui. You don't even need any plugins
The result of this approach looks like this

If you have more questions, you can take a look in FB community.

PTGui also provides some basic information: https://www.ptgui.com/support.html#6_39

If you'd like to create a depthmap from a stereo 360, you could use stereo2depth for example. But the results are messy.

The krpano examples are created with the Kandao Obsidian I guess: https://www.kandaovr.com/obsidian-go/. Their (Windows only) software offers depthmap export.
