I have no licence for krpano at the moment.
I have the impression that when I generate a virtual tour with autopano tour v.1.1.0. beta 7, the panorama online looks much worse then when I open the panorama in a viewer like irfanview. The generated panorama's are like 13888 pixels wide and since I removed lot of CA they look great in Irfanview, but lowres online.
Is this due to having no KRPANO license?
Yes. There is a relatively low limit on the max. cube face size, and max. partial pano width, in Autopano 1.1 without a krpano licence.
The license is not expensive for me as I can have it for 80 euro due to the fact I have some others licences already, but I would like to know.
I have no need for xml coding but more detail when zooming would be nice.
Autopano Tour is being replaced by Panotour and Panotour Pro. When Autopano Giga V2.5 is finally released then it will no longer include a virtual tour authoring program. Autopano Tour will 'disapppear' and be replaced by PanoTour and Panotour Pro which will be marketed separately.
If you have an Autopano Giga licence you can get a free licence key for Panotour.
If you have an Autopano Giga licence and a krpano licence then you can have a free licence key for Panotour Pro.
If you are willing to purchase a krpano licence at the discounted fee then I would very much recommend that route to obtaining a Panotour Pro licence.
