Okay, well I'm glad we've already got some suggestions, even if they're posted on the sticky and not actual separate posts. ;-)
For a PDF or a printed form of the documentation, we'd first need to have a more completed and understandable version of the documentation, at least for the book, it's easier to keep a PDF up to date but it would still be best to sort out the documentation first than releasing confusing PDFs... no?
+ hire a Person locally based at your Office responsible for writing the technical documentation. This Person should be no programmer, it should be a (Hobby?) photographer willing to lern to create panos. If a question does popup he should visit the collegues to ask his questions...
That's what we've done for the Panotour Documentation, what do you think of how it was presented (with the short youtube videos for each feature... everywhere)? Some of the "Kolor-English" will obviously need to be revised, though it didn't seem to bad in this new doc.
The videos wouldn't be very helpful if we put the doc into a PDF though, since they can't be integrated. Same for a book!
+ A Listing of all possible values of this Setting explaining exactly what the Impact is using this value (example: why and when have I to move the blending Level value from Default -2 to -1, which Change have I to expect if doing so, what can be achied using this, which sideeffect will popup which negative Impact will arise if available...)
Like in the PTP2 doc, we're planning on adding short videos that would be able to show the different settings. Too many images make the pages take ages to load, and aren't necessarily more understandable than videos where you can see in "real-time" what is happening.
+ in sum the docu should gives you a guide how to use the Software to get a perfect Panorama rendered on first try and not a vague map to start your try and error Marathon...
Perhaps something like in the AVP doc,
"first steps"? With a video, and workflow.
The "My first panorama
" video will have to be updated, especially the voice-over..
What are your thoughts on our latest actual video tutorials (with voice explanation, not the soundless videos)?
