It all started with a tweet from a guy in Utah.  He said he had cracked up be cause his mother had emailed him after watch his lawn cam – capturing some landscaping.

Anyway – his blog post was a bout the concept of video stitching:

I saw this amazing Stabilized Video Collage this morning while reading … this is really impressive.  You have to see it to really appreciate what is being done.

The author has used a program called Motion (in FinalCut on the Mac) to stitch two videos together to make one.  Not only is it obscenely cool, it makes the video enjoyable to watch.  It appears you can stitch video from many different sources and multiple camera together to build a killer panoramic vid.

Very cool.
