[SOLVED] Limiting Input Field of View

by wshackne » Mon Mar 31, 2014 5:50 pm

Hi, I have created 3 tours with Panotour Pro 2.0.1 (Windows), and my client wants to limit the FOV in some of the panos from 360 degrees to 180 degrees or 90 degrees. When I change the Input FOV from 360 to 180, the tour ends up distorting the panos. I have attached 2 screenshots to show the problem. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas on how this can be fixed? I am not able to change any of the numbers in the Input FOV, etc. They always revert back to whatever number the software thinks corresponds to the Horizontal FOV. Any help would be appreciated. Also, changing the projection from spherical to planar does not help.

Use the Crop tool in the Hostpot editor to limit the displayed field of view when tour is viewed.

This is a virtual crop, it doesn't physically alter the image.

If the input image has a 360 HFOV you need to employ a 'trick' to be able to display use the crop handles on the H axis.

Select the pano so that it is displayed in the Hotspot editor and select the Crop tool.

Change the input FOV value from 360 to 359.

Then select a different pano, and again re-select the pano you wish to crop.

You should now see crop handles on the H axis as well as the V axis.

Crop as desired then change the input FOV back to 360.

Thank you for your answer. I knew there had to be a way to do this without effecting the view of the tour. This works perfectly!
