This vide shows how to 3D-transform is made from a 2D-image of the Moon.
The image is reprojected back to spherical 3D-surface.
It makes possible to see details from a limb area of the Moon, otherwise burried by the perspective distortion.
Real shape of the craters can now be seen.
In the Video, there is first a normal, high resolution, image of the Full moon.
Secondly the image is projected back to a sphere.
After that, the vantagepoint can be freely selected from the Space, as long as the target stays at the area visible in the original 2D-image!

As I mentioned some ealier post, I have done this kind of experiments few years back.
At the time I did only still images.
One of them was selected as a LPOD (lunar Picture Of the Day).
this was my very first LPOD.
