Problem with thumbnail images and krpano gallery plugin

by Nelike Imagery » Mon Jun 21, 2010 7:49 am

Hi

Im not really sure if i should ask this here or at krpanos forum but will try here atleast. I have a bit odd problem with autopano tours thumbnail images and krpanos imagegallery plugin.
I made a tour of a naturepath and wanted to include detail pictures in it and used the gallery from krpano (what i use with autopano) and after setting them in xml and opened the tour i had this problem. My thumbnail images are not available or are under the slide. When i press a picture from the imagegallery, thumbnails pop up and can be used. When you move to new place, they are unavailable again and by clicking the picture, they show up. Here is the tour:

http://inelike.fi/wp-content/virtuaalikierrokset/urpolatour/urpolatour.html

And about the xml code, i've just included the "imagegallery.xml." in the code exported from autopano. Anyone can help me with this? Im using PC.
Thanks!

Ps. We finally have a website on so check it out: www.inelike.fi. It's in finnish but google translate should help you to navigate.

You can fix this kind of problem using the zorder plugin property.
This code the relative depth of your plugin. 0 means 'behind everything else' (default), higher values means 'in front of all plugins with lower zorder'.
This may help you.

You can go to the plugins website from the plugin itself. Cooliris is the name :)

yes, that one.

But now i started to check my tours again, i still have the problem of hiding thumbnail images. When go some place from thumbnail and watch pictures from gallery, thumbnails go under the slide. No matter how i change the Zorder, the images disappear. The problem is the imagegallery for sure, it's messing with the thumbnails. This problem has been around for a bit now and haven't found solution yet. If anyone can give some kind of solution how this can be solved, please let me know so no need to think this one anymore. Thank you a lot for your help people! I appreciate it.

Hi Jesse!

Don´t know wether i´m the only one: i think your site loads extremely slow!
I have a 16MB cable connection - which is usually very fast.

Did you use multires for your pano?

Thanks for the feedback Klaus! But yes, i used multires for my panos. With autopano tour beta at the moment, it can make the multires for you which i found to be really nice. Maybe it's the distance to the server perhaps? I tried with 1MB net here in Finland and it loaded pretty fast. With 8MB there is no more than 2-3 sec waiting time anymore with the tours. If you can suggest any other way to make my tours faster to load, i would appreciate it much.

Jesse

Hi Jesse!

I suggest to leave the loading icon away - it dominates the whole picture each time you move even a little bit . . . . :cool:
It´s very personal: i hate panos splattered with icons and tables and so on . . .

How big is your equirectangular image?
A good size is 10000 x 5000px, cubeface 3184, cutting size 512 - shows brilliant and sharp on 1920x1200.

Of course loading time depends of global traffic.

I got annoyed by the loading icon now that you mentioned it! Will remove it for the ones coming atleast. Im same type as you then, the less buttons there is, the better. Still i like to add image gallery there too to get more details of the place :)

About the images... for example in "Urpola tour" image sizes are around 11540 x 5770, cube face around that 3200 but cutting size 950. So i should put the cutting size smaller as you suggest? Will try that :) Im pretty much a quality freak. I want to produce high quality since the beginning so putting images smaller is not an option. (only if customers server can't handle this big files, then have to).

Thanks a lot again Klaus! You are totally a master of virtualtours :cool: Happy to get advice from the master!

Regards,
Jesse

Edit: Klaus, i made a fast 2 pano tour from yesterday evenings photographing and tried what you suggested: http://inelike.fi/wp-content/virtuaalikierrokset/tour/laketour.html Loading speed is faster now?

Edit 2: Made the previous tour full lenght with image gallery. Works whole better now! Check it out and give feedback how beginner is doing :)

Regards, Jesse
