Panotour - Panorama Properties - Pictures 180

This tab contains settings used to adjust the quality of the pictures used to view the selected panorama in the virtual tour.
Depending on the panorama's fields of view, two scenarios are possible :


SPHERICAL PANORAMA (360°x180°)

Images tab

Compute optimal size
Automatically calculates a size that will use the input image's resolution best.


Cube face size
Defines the size of the cube faces used to build a 3D cubic panorama.


Max. preview size
The preview is a low quality version of the panorama that is viewed when the virtual tour is launched. This version is viewed until the image is completely uploaded. You can adjust the quality here.


Cutting size
When an image exceeds the value specified in one of the sizes, a multi-resolution pyramid is automatically generated to facilitate the progressive loading of the data.
This lets you specify a cutting size for the multi-resolution pyramid.
The 0 value will deactivate the multi-resolution.


Jpeg quality
Lets you define the Jpeg quality factor applied to the images when the tour is exported.
The bigger it is, the less visible the compression effects are. This will play a role on the weight of the tour.


Nadir patch
This inserts an image on the nadir to overcome the shortcomings of the panorama (to hide the tripod for example).

  • Use the Select icon to open a folder browser. Here you can choose the image that you want to use as the nadir patch.
  • The Remove icon lets you delete the selection if it is not suitable. This does not influence the source file in any way.
  • Scale: This lets you define the size of the image inserted on the nadir. This is proportional to the face of a cube.


PARTIAL PANORAMA (< 360°x180°)

Images tab

Compute optimal size
Automatically calculates a size that will use the input image's resolution the best.


Partial panorama width
Determines the width of the panorama in pixels.


Max. preview size
The preview is a low quality version of the panorama that is viewed when the virtual tour is launched. This version is viewed until the image is completely uploaded. You can adjust the quality here.


Cutting size
When an image exceeds the value specified in one of the sizes, a multi-resolution pyramid is automatically generated to facilitate the progressive loading of the data.
This lets you specify a cutting size for the multi-resolution pyramid.
The 0 value will deactivate the multi-resolution.


Jpeg quality
Lets you define the Jpeg quality factor applied to the images when the tour is exported.
The bigger it is, the less visible the compression effects are. This will play a role on the weight of the tour.
