Using a virtual camera with a large FOV can cause objectionable distortion near the screen’s edges. The article at http://www.decarpentier.nl/lens-distortion introduces a novel barrel distortion post effect that may be used to reduce stretch in this case. The effect can be controlled through multiple tweakable parameters, and requires only 2 additional instruction slots of a post effect’s fragment shader. 




It also contains a link to an open-source Ogre3D and WebGL example to play with the effect in real-time.
