A reasonable tour size on web?

by E.HOBA » Mon May 21, 2012 5:52 am

Hi everyone, I'm new here.

I start using panotour pro recently and usually my tour become 7xxmb. Anyone know where to fix the size of pano?

And also I am considering which size is reasonable for tour on web browsing... will 20mb tour is too heavy for bandwidth?

Thanks

Welcome to the forum...

What size (pixel dimensions) are the pano images you are using as input for the tour?

Because Panotour Pro automatically uses the multi-resolution feature of krpano then the size of the tour is pretty much irrelevant to the performance of playback on whatever platform one is viewing if using any kind of broadband Internet connection.

If you think you will have significant numbers of site visitors using low bandwidth dial up Internet connections, and wish to cater to their limitations, then I would suggest you make a separate version of the tour just for them.

Thanks for prompt reply!!

my original pano size is 31641px x 10772px,

Since my pano contain a lot detail, I want my pano can zoom very deep, however it's looks like will make the tour very large.

The tour size is it just depends on the "partial panorama width" and "cutting size" on panorama properties?

see also the jpeg quality setting. Default is 10 but i find 8 to be plenty which saves a chunk of space

Use the "reduce distortion" tab and a jpg value of about 8 when you work on panos of that size.
(don´t forget: you NEED a 2:1 ratio for sphericals).

I usually use the settings i said with panos of about 35000px width - like this one:

The pano-folder size is about 160MB.

Thanks klausesser, I set the jpg value to 6 to remain the tour size in 50MB.
this is what I got now : http://www.ryancheng.hk/portfolio/victoria-harbour/gallery/portfolio/

The problem using that much compression is that you might get posterizing - which means color-steps in the sky and so.
Doesn´t look good and definitely isn´t acceptable in commercial jobs!

The size of the panorama on your server is much lesser issue i mean . . it loads fast nevretheless due to the multiresolution-structure.
