360 Cyclindrical Tour problem

by alosurdo » Wed Jan 25, 2012 11:28 pm

Hi, i am using the demo version of panotour pro and will be looking to purchase it asap, though im struggling for a fix to what i am sure is a basic problem.

My stitching software of choice is Ptgui and i have made a 360 cylindrical panourama.

What i am wanting to do is keep the FOV at 90 and still have it tour as 360 (eg with no up and down movement on the final tour).

I am unsure as to why somethimes i get some movement up and down and how to keep it as a 90 FOV with 360 around in a cylindrical view. (this would actually make the proportions of this pano better looking and not as stretched)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So what I understand is that you need 90x360 view, for doing that you have to use crop tool in the hotspot editor Image
This Limits the visible area of the panorama to the final rendering. So you drag the top & bottom to crop your image.

What pano projection type are you using?

Panotour/Panotour Pro only support pimages with a speherical projection or a planar projection.

Note that projection type is unrelated to the image field of view.
