Been having this idea for roughly half a year now but was lacking both time and processing power to actually realize it. Basically, I was making my first experiments with Vue's spherical render option (aka. 360° by 180° viewing angle) in June, 2010. Alas, it's much more processor-intensive than I imagined; and so it had to wait until I had the chance to connect a couple computers to render out a blown-up version.

And so, I am proud to present to you: Departure
I intentionally made it a little large filesize-wisely, so you can enjoy it in full quality ;)
And a little bit about navigating:
:bulletred: use the scroll-wheel or Ctrl + Shift to zoom in/out
:bulletred: click and drag the mouse or use the arrow keys to turn around

Enjoy and Happy New Year! :)

- project started on: 28 Jun 2010
- original resolution: 6000x3000 pixels
- Total render time: ~38 hours
- number of computers rendering: up to 3 at a time

Haha, glad you like it! I rendered it out with a horizontal viewing-angle of 360° and a vertical of 180° and mapped the image onto the surface of a sphere. You are inside the sphere and are able to pan around ;)

Hmm, I have an over-aged Pentium-4 computer xD

The trick is that this is only a static image that I rendered out. The interactive/animating-part was done in a post-process ;)

Du brauchst ein Bild, was im 360x180°-Format vorliegt. Das haust du auf die Innenseite einer Kugel und kriegst sowas ;)
