Friday 31 January 2014
With the Livepano addon for Panotour Pro 2, your virtual tours come to life! Insert one or more video zones within the photographic content: Livepano automatically places the videos above the background panorama and you can adjust its blending mask for the best possible inclusion quality. Discover in this article why you need Autopano Pro/Giga 3 and Panotour Pro 2 to create Livepano-enabled virtual tours.
Software you need to use Livepano
Use Autopano Pro 3 or Autopano Giga 3 to stitch the images of your panoramas
Livepano enables to remap one or several videos on a spherical panorama. The way the remapping is done depends on the way the stitching is done.
Autopano Pro and Autopano Giga software have their own camera/lens model and Livepano uses it to correctly remap the video onto the panorama. It is a mathematical modelization of the sensor/lens couple, proper to Autopano. This is why the stitching of the panorama has to be done with either Autopano Pro 3 or Autopano Giga 3. Other mathematical modelizations like the ones of Adobe or Panotools will not work.
Thus, stitching the spherical panorama in Autopano Pro 3 or Autopano Giga 3 guarantees a proper integration of Livepano videos in your virtual tours.
Use Panotour Pro 2 to integrate your Livepano videos in your virtual tours
You need Panotour Pro 2 because Livepano is an addon that runs within this application. When you activate your Livepano licence in Panotour Pro 2, you have access to the Livepano wizard which guides you through the video incorporation and the blending process.
