Poor tour quality...

I stitched partial 360x180 spherical panorama with 72 pictures in APG. Rendered TIF image is of over 600 MP size and looks fairly sharp when examined in Photoshop. The tour created in PTPro, however, doesn't look that good when zoomed 500%. I'm using .ptv file to watch the tour, which is build with default settings. What can be done to improve the tour image quality? Am I missing something?

take a look at this earlier thread and the link inside it for likely causes and resolutions for non 360x180 panos

Martin, I read this thread, followed the suggestion to render full 360x180 sphere stitch in APG with black holes in the sky and later crop the image in PTP, but no success so far. The entire row around and below horizon is of terrible quality at magnification when compared to stitched TIFF image as seen in Photoshop ...

OK, figured this out ... The trick is to make sure that stitched image is rendered at FULL sphere 360x180 (not Auto) by executing the crop (green check icon) and later crop out the black parts - if any - in tour maker. Now the tour is playing back at full available resolution of stitched image, assuming it's creation in PTPro. Standard version will limit the image size to 200MP, unfortunately degrading tour resolution in process ...
