limiting the FOV

by burake » Sun Apr 21, 2013 9:32 am

Dear forum members,
We made a virtual tour where the customer doesn't wish to show all the 360 degree at the starting panorama...The vertical FOV should stay by 180 degree but the horizontal must be limited...We couldn't change this while creating the tour; but we have made a change to the XML file of the concerning panorama:

hlookatmax="45" instead of "180" (hlookatmin unchanged "180")

and have achieved this satisfying result:

But iOS doesn't seem to recognize this change and on my iPad 4 I can see the whole 360 degree...Any idea how to solve this problem?

Any answer will be highly appreciated...
Best regards
Burak

You can do it in fact even if the HFOV is 360.

What you do is manually change the HFOV setting (in PTP) to 359 then you'll see the crop handles on the H axis, do the crop then change the HFOV back to 360.

Yes, iDevices don't 'honour' the crop on the H axis, only on the V axis.

A bug/limitation/feature of the krpano 1.0.8.15 HTML5 Panoarama Viewer I think.

I do not know of anyway to fix this.

Update - it appears that the new krpano 1.16 HTML5 Panorama Viewer will 'honour' the crop on the H axis as well as the V axis.
