The new  video-to-panorama feature that helps you quickly select frames from a video and stitches them together into a stroboscopic motion panorama, where the person in the video appears intermittently across the entire range of the static image. Also, there are variety of lenses or projections to your image creating nearly a dozen effects, such as fish-eye, spherical, orthographic and stereographic.

ICE is an advanced panoramic image stitcher. ICE can create a seamless high-resolution panorama from overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location, or from a panning video, or even from a stop-motion action overlaid on the background.
