Digital imaging applications enable photographers to create linear panoramic images typically up to ~ 360° rotation. Algorithms stitch individual frames together into a seamless image, blending the frames together and filling in the gaps as needed.
When the photographer shifts the device up or down during a linear sweep the file produced shows significant artifacts where the stitching is unable to produce a seamless image. Jagged edges, empty voids and wide vertical banding combine to create an image where seamless images collapse.
The fractured image produced in this fashion stands in stark contrast to the manner in which people see the world around them. As the eye receives information about different points of view the brain stitches it all together to create a seamless visual perception of reality.
As one moves their head so the world around them comes into view seamlessly without any jagged voids or fragmentation.
