I'm new to this forum so apologies if I started a thread that has been discussed before. I did a search, but was not too successful ;-)
My problem is that my panos are not scrolling smoothly. I have quite a big project which I set up with KRPano first - where it did run smoothly.
Now as a new Panotour Pro user, I set up the pano tour again with lots of features like compass, map etc.
When I view the tour in the preview mode, I find all panos are not scrolling smoothly.
The panos are all approx. 10.000 pixels wide, so quite big.
Any hints? What am I missing?
Many thanks for your help,
10.000px width is rather small these days for panos. My panos and tours are about 35.000 and 80.000px wide . . . and run smoothly.
The problem is that people more and more like to overfreight their tours with thousands of redundant items like maps, compass, sound and what ever -
dancing MickeyMouses and all . . .
In that case the viewer´s machine should be really potent to deal with the amount of DIFFERENT informations coming from the server.
I realize that my MacPro runs even the biggest panos and tours smoothly - but when i see them on my neighbor´s average PC i see the same tours
stuttering along - that´s also related to the more or less stable and fast connection-performance of course.
So my advise: keep it simple, straight. This is ALWAYS the best way of doing things - as long as you bring them to "the point".
Forget all the gimmicks around the vital information your pano needs to transport. Nobody really needs them.
Better put your efforts in shooting highres and provide a deeper zoom-range for seeing more details. THAT is what makes people happy when they
explore a location via your panos!
