Livepano - You need an equirectangular panorama loaded

by MetroRuss » Tue Mar 11, 2014 9:21 pm

Hello,

I have followed the tutorial of the Restaurant Le Pano in the trial version of PTP 2.0 and got as far as importing a Live pano.

I am getting this error pop up message
"You need an equirectangular panorama loaded before importing livepano"

Have I missed something or am I doing something dumb?

When you stitch a pano from pictures yiu shot in a spherical mode the final rendering is an equirectangular panorama-image.

This one you need to import into PanotourPro for making it an interactive panorama.

So you need to import the equirectangular image first and the video after that. Of course you need to shoot the video from the very same position as the spherical pano.

Shoot the video, switch from video to photo *without moving the camera at all* and start to shoot the pano-images. This way your first pano-image shows the very same as the video.

Hi.. Its in your settings.. What you need to do is set to Max Projection.. You can set this as a default in your preferences so you do not have to worry about it.....
