Hi, I just create my firts commercial VT for a Dentist practice in the Netherlands. I'can't wait to redo this with the new Panotour Pro V2.0.
Look at http://www.kubatz.nl/panos/mzcg
or at the dentist site: http://www.mzcg.nl/virtualtour.php

On the dentis site it is a little to small. I will talk to the website builder soon.
I'm now working on a VT for a shopping mall with the Beta version.

Congratulations! Always a good feeling when you commission your first tour. Agree on the pano on their website - wrong viewing ratio for the tour.

Couple of observations to consider for developing the tours further. On the opening shot you can see your shadow on the floor. Can this not be masked out so not showing? The reception area feels to be on a tilt and not level. Also a lot of the rooms have the windows "blown" i.e. over exposed with no detail visible, just a nasty white blob of nothing. Try bracketing your shots with +/- 2 or 3EV to capture a broader dynamic range. Not neccesarily talking HDR processing but LDR would be better. Good tool that I use is a free software called "Enfuse GUI" which takes the separate exposed images and combines them to a final image that has the dark, mid and highlights. Will be an improvement over what is presently showing especially being rooms full of white walls as well! please don't see this as a negative but really being of a constructive observation to help improve yourself

Hi!

Some remarks: the shots show massive chromatic abberations, also the indoor-scenes are heavily distorted.
I also suggest to use bracketing for compensating the completely washed-out highlights.

To be honest: i think this quality is not acceptable these days.

Sorry for being so blunt - but you wouldn´t have any advantage from nicely talking around facts when your aim is
to gain more jobs like this.

best, Klaus

While it might not be 'acceptable' to you or your clients it obviously was 'acceptable' to his client.

Seems so, yes. But that´s very short-sighted if you want to start making a business from it . . .

You can´t rely on: "uh - this client accepted it, so others will accept it too" Making a business from it you need to
earn credits, build up a reputation in providing quality.

A poorly made visual presentation never promotes a product on a level the client wants it to be - but maybe he
doesn´t realize the shortcomings at all.

Other - potential - clients will realize it very well. You never know in advance what people realize . . :cool: so
you´d better *always* provide quality.

And the additional effort is small: compensate the CAs and treat the panos the correct way in PTP - and they´re not distorted
anymore, shooting bracketed in such extreme light-situations is common use these days - isn´t it.

;)
