Re: How is this done?

Thanks Oliver. I've seen this system used in relatively small spaces such as motor homes. In most of those the camera is in the scene somewhere and wondered if that's just how it works or perhaps the user in some cases just does a quick scan and isn't concerned about that.

How is this done?

I'm seeing more tours like the ones here. Anyone know what apps are used to create these tours?

Re: I guess this is goodbye for now!

Annis, I don't check in here often-- perhaps like many others mainly when I'm dealing with some kind of ech issue. I've always found your thoughtful, detailed, informed responses to all manner of support questions to be most appreciated. Given that the stats show that you've contributed over six tho...

Re: non 360 introduction video

Perhaps it's just me but were I the target of your obnoxious comments not only would I not answer your questions, I'd ask that you be banned. Just my $.02.

Re: Join me for my Panotour Pro 2 webinar on October 26!

Just noticed the link to the video. Very helpful and I picked up some great tips. Thanks much! I'll just add that I agree with tony75672's comment re. perhap some shorter videos with specific topics would be very useful. Having produced a number of training videos myself, I've found that 60+ minute ...

Re: Sky not being grouped into panorama

>>What don't you use our Gigapan import module instead?


That looks like it could be very useful. Will definitely have to try it out. Thanks for the info!

Re: How close can you shoot a panorama?

Thanks Destiny. I think I did not describe the desired result very well. Yes, a very high resolution flat image is what we want to end up with-- the goal being to let viewers zoom in and see small details clearly. In this case the entire tour would mainly be just this single, high res image with the...

How close can you shoot a panorama?

I'd like to create a high resolution image of some artwork on a wall but the problem is the way the room is situated you can only get about 8 feet away from the surface. If I were to take a series of images-- say three rows x 3 columns of images at this distance-- would Autopano be able to create a ...

Re: Any way to straighten these images?

Hello, Have you tried to add your pictures to APG and launch the detection? Did you get something usable? I think you can merge your pictures, then rotate the single pictures if needed. Let me know. Best, OLivier Hi Olivier, It turned out not to be much of an issue. One thing we did was to rotate a...

Any way to straighten these images?

Working with images that were taken in the interior of a home. With a 15mm lens 5 images were taken in each of the 20 positions with exposure compensation applied in order to put together a final HDR image-- 100 images in total. However during setup somehow the rig got tilted a bit and all of the im...

Re: Fisheye questions

Hello, Using a fisheye lens you need to shoot the nadir and zenith to avoid distorsion, if you are not using a full frame sensor, to have enough overlap, if you want to remove the tripod, etc. You can refer to this lens database for more information regarding the number of pictures you must shoot d...

Fisheye questions

It seems that most articles I read recommend taking 8 images for a 360 panorama using a Fisheye lens-- including an up/down shot for zenith & nadir. Trying to understand why the up/down shots are necessary. Presently, using our 15mm non-fisheye lens, we're getting good results taking around 24 i...

Re: Some very basic questions about resolution

Those are great examples Annis and really clearly shows the difference between the two approaches. Thanks much! What lens were you using on the D800?

Also, I really like the drop-down menu for navigation. Could you briefly describe how you did that?

Some very basic questions about resolution

To this point for our 360 panoramas we've been using a 15mm lens on our Canon DSLR. With the FOV we've set the panos typically are consisting of 24 images to stitch in Giga. Works great. What's not clear to me is what would be the advantages, or disadvantages of using, say a fisheye type lens? Less ...

Re: Cube Faces: High resolution? [SOLVED]

Ah-- that's strange as I have been using these panoramas for some time in tests. But apparently somewhere along the line one of the versions that weren't full res must have been imported in error. Figured it was user error of some kind and now I know to check the FOV values if it happens again. Than...

Re: How are your HDs configured? [SOLVED]

That's interesting. I'm so used to configuring multiple HDs with programs such as Premiere Pro that I guess I just assumed that would be a good way to go.
