My problem might be a little more complicated. I would rather have it be like a virtual tour AROUND the car. Kinda like rotating an object in VRML if you have ever fooled around with that. You can click on the image, rotate the image with the mouse. I only want to rotate the image along one axis.
But where to find a turntable that is big enough for a car..
Some people have these installed under their driveways if they don't have enough space to turn around and don't want to back out into traffic. I imagine if you look hard enough in a large city, you could find one. Or talk to your local car dealership to see if you could "borrow" their showroom turntable.
Position car, and take first picture.
Then get in the car, drive forward and turn a bit, back up into the same spot and it is rotated slightly, take another picture.
Keep doing that...
A bit time-consuming, but it works.
I mark the center of the roof on the car. I take a piece of rope and tie one end to my tripod and with the help of an assistant the other end is touching the "mark". The rope will act as the radius for my circle. I just move the tripod and measure the distance aka radius with the rope. Take the rope down, take the pic, rinse and repeat. What do you think?
So this wouldn't give a turntable effect, but it would achieve your initial objective.
