I have cut down on the "crawling ants" effect dramatically on high resolution panoramas by being very careful about my sharpening and compression. Too much sharpening or too low a compression exacerbates it, not enough sharpening or too high a compression results in a severe drop in perceived resolu...

A quick Dropbox trick: go to the blue download button on the top right and you can download the whole set as a .zip file. So it makes more sense to upload single images to Dropbox. :)

It's easy until you attempt it on a full sphere. The nadir and zenith look horrible on an equirectangular image. Doing it on cube faces was no better as the lines don't curve as they should through the sphere. I finally found a program that could do a proper stereographic output at near 360x180 and ...

Actually... I've taken on a much larger one than that... but editing it has eluded me! This one was extreme enough since Photoshop does not edit full spheres properly.

Leifs: one is a 35mm lens, the other an 85mm lens, different photos, different nadirs. I don't understand the question either?

Klause, you must have tucked two tripod legs underneath and leaned it against the railing by the looks? Much smaller without the bag underneath of course.

A different take on transitions (day/night, summer/winter, etc.)

With the weather this month going from spring to winter and back and forth, I had a cool idea to represent it in a “Little Planet” spherical panorama. I took two 360° x 180° panoramas from the same location on two different days and blended them together. The spring day was March 31, 2013 demons...

I too have experienced this a couple times on my iPad. Refreshing the page removed the demo notification. I suggest it is a bug.

Hi Paul,

See if this tour works on your Android: http://www.aaronpriestphoto.com/pano/2013-04-11_Howland_Dam/

I replaced all the .js files that PTP creates with newer ones from KRPano 1.16.1 last night.

Not sure if that was excitement or sarcasm Klaus. Haha! But yeah, better integration with KRpano in the future would be very, very nice. And the groupings they did for rooms in virtual tours looked really interesting, for my type of work anyway. We'll see when the betas start rolling out of course.....

I was just experimenting with something similar this evening. In virtualtour0.xml (or whichever image you want to limit) I changed a couple parameters that seems to work good on my iPad: vlookatmin="-54" vlookatmax="80". Set them to whatever works for your image.

That's a beautiful panorama Trey. What focal length and how many images did it take? HDR or exposure fusion?

First virtual tour with my Panoneed

My first paid project and virtual tour with the Panoneed robotic head. I could not have taken this, stitched it, and presented it to the client in the time frame I did without the Panoneed, Promote Control, Lightroom, PTGui Pro, and of course PanoTour Pro! I'm absolutely floored by the accuracy and ...

I swapped out the krpanoiphone.js, swfkrpano.js, gyro.js, and radar.js files. I got better Android support afterward, but didn't notice much of anything else on iPhones or iPads. I left the .swf files alone so far. Where does PTP get the files from when you build a tour? I couldn't find them on my c...

I don't typically retouch in Photoshop for interiors. I usually use PTGui Pro and viewpoint correction with an off-axis nadir. Largely because I shoot a lot of tiled floors with multiple light sources, white balance, and glare. Photoshop just doesn't clone all that very well. Outdoor nature/scenic s...

This is the nadir (down face of a cube) of my Nikon D700, 14-24mm f/2.8 lens @ 14mm, on a Panoneed head and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod. I'm using a leveling base between the tripod and Panoneed, no ball head or center column, so it sits very low on the fulcrum for very good vibration dampenin...

Best way to grab a screen shot of an equirectangular panorama?

What is the best method of manipulating a spherical (equirectangular) panorama and saving out some still shots? I've seen a couple plugins for Photoshop, but the ones I tried didn't work very intuitively. Right now I'm loading them into PTGui with lens type set to equirectangular panorama, 360° fiel...

Yup! I've used it quite a bit. I want to do a move like this rough screen capture I took, but I can't find a tool to do it with. Trapcode Horizon doesn't deal with a stereographic projection (little planet).

Klaus, have you tried Trapcode Horizon (3rd party plugin) in After Effects? Works quite well for this sort of thing.
