Proof of concept virtual tour [1 Attachment]

PanoTools NG mailing list

* bad stitching
* color issues

RE: Proof of concept virtual tour

PanoTools NG mailing list
What do you want to know?

My take would be..

 

1.       The default krpano droplet is not really too user friendly.

People aren’t going to find the thumbnails if ever.

Make them open by default or try another skin.

 

2.       The resolution isn’t good enough to be worthwhile.  You can’t tell what anything is.

 

3.       Some of the panoramas aren’t leveled. This give a feeling of generally nausea when panning

 

4.       Your nadir hotspot should have capture=false or enabled=false so that it doesn’t block the mouse.

5.       It could use some information about what we are looking at.. Describe the facility and each scene. A virtual tour should be a method to learn a hundred things. With the current setup, I’m learning that there’s a bunch of tables and some people working.

 

Mostly, the resolution needs to be better. First timers often get caught in no-stitch one shot cameras. But they aren’t good enough to use.  Multicamera devices are only good for video, automated webcams, toy-shots, etc. Static scenes are much better done with 360 heads and ANY other camera.

 Noted

 panoweaver defaults to the lowest resolution for stitching unless changed :facepalm:

 

 
 >3.       Some of the panoramas aren’t leveled. This give a feeling of generally nausea >when panning
 Noted

 I have removed the nadir hotspots as there were cause other issues
 

 >5.       It could use some information about what we are looking at.. Describe the >facility and each scene. A virtual tour should be a method to learn a hundred things. >With the current setup, I’m learning that there’s a bunch of tables and some people >working.

 On the to-do list

 

 

 >Mostly, the resolution needs to be better. First timers often get caught in no-stitch >one shot cameras. But they aren’t good enough to use.  Multicamera devices are >only good for video, automated webcams, toy-shots, etc. Static scenes are much >better done with 360 heads and ANY other camera.

 the camera has the resolution appox 2.5 Megpixels per full fisheyes when cropped
 four photos are take at 90 degrees intervals

 

 I am currently restitching/rendering the images....

I agree with Sacha.  Also poor exposure, focus, positioning and/or composition is boring at best.  The quality of that little camera leaves a lot to be desired.  Not what I would consider a professional job, but if it is just for techies to say 'Oh that's so cool' -  then maybe that's good enough.

panoramic photoing is screw up my positioning, more experimenting is needed
I am also document the changes at the place
