I assist - asking for it since long. But it still seems not to be possible . . . In PTP i edit each pano´s xml.
In KRPano i set it as default for all generated panos in the template. Works fine.

Whether it´s possible to make it default in PTP2´s template-xml i don´t know - i didn´t update yet
and can´t evaluate the xml.

At this time Normal view is the only one supported for all panoramas with Panotour.

But Architectural view can be activated on each view with this kind of code into the main xml (be careful with littleplanet intro and context menu projections which erase these data) :
<view ...
architectural="1.0"
stereographic="false"
pannini="false"
fisheye="0.0"
... />

The very same i do - did - in PTP1.8 . . . .

It´s a vital feature when you shoot panos for galleries, artists or architects. They really hate the heavy distortions
which occour when you tilt up and down.
I can´t understand that: you implemented so many . . . features into PTP2 - but not such a vital one . .
Are you really on a way creating your app firsthand for landscape-shooting hobbyists who *love* to have tons of features?

No, it's into our list from many time it's true, but this feature apply many changes and validations to do. It's not a trivial change.

Benji - it´s ONE word and ONE number when i add it in the xml of PTP1.8 manually:

<view architectural="1" hlookat="0" vlookat="0" maxpixelzoom="1.0" fov="60" fovmax="70" limitview="auto" />

Are you really telling: ". . . . this feature apply many changes and validations to do. It's not a trivial change."???

Please do not forget that after all there still are some few professionals among your clients who might desperately need THIS kind of features more than 75% of the rather gimmicking rest of the features . .

What are the vital advanced features compared to PTP1.8? What´s a real step forewards?

1) LiveVideo.
2) Compatibility with html5/js for Androids.

That´s it. All other things either can be done also in 1.8 or are of lesser importance for people like me.

For me - as well as for many other pros i´m in permenent contact with - It´s unacceptable to expect from a client first to set manually the projection for viewing a pano/tour the best way which suits him. That´s amateurish - definitely a no go.

Architects, artists and others, who hate extreme vertical distortions because it´s badly influences their works on the screen - are not used in these things like users for whom it´s ok to configure their viewer first.

The work i do and many other professionals also do usually is "tailored" to the need of very critical and demanding clients.
The fact is: it´s almost imposssible to convince for example famous architects, artists and other creators of objects as well as high-class real estate agents that interactive panorama-photography can be fine for them. I encounter that fact each time i´m in meetings with this kind of potential clients.

They prefer classical architectural photography resp. classic photography generally. Straight, minimal distorted, clean.

They say that panorama-photography in their eyes is "hobby stuff" and terrible looking - because their products/projects are presented in an extremely distorted way.

And they´re right!

One of the ways to convince these peopile is to minimize inavoidable distortions. And here the architectural view is of VERY important help!

I wrote about that all many times here. But it seems that people like me have kind of fallen out of Kolor´s focus meanwhile.

I understand your request.
It's trivial to do on your own xml but not on all the software, because many methods are based on rectilinear default view and must be validated in all "directions".
But yes it's a feature request for a long (... very long) time. And it will be added into one of the first 2.X version.
