Large PSB Conversion to MultiRes Problem

Hi,

I'm trying to use the 'multires' tool to produce tiles for a 35Gb 360x180 pano.

However, about half of the tiles produced have stripes down them - made up of columns of repeating pixels.

I see this has happened to one other person before (here ) however I did not see any answer to what I can do to avoid this problem?

I am using a quad core i5 iMac with 16Gb of ram.

I would love to know what I can do to get this working as this project has taken so long and to be tripped at the final hurdle is so frustrating!

Many thanks,

Henry Stuart

The file is too big to be converted to PSD.

I think what is happening is that the temporary tiff cube faces that are created are going over 4GB which means they cannot be read properly past that point.

I don't know if there is anyway of getting round this problem?

Try using the convert to cubes jpg tool and then drag ALL six cubes onto the tool you are currently using.

Just a guess.

Have tried this now and just reports an error when trying to make JPEGS of that size.

Klauss, anyone, any ideas on how I get this all to work?

One last try here. Does your PSB have layers? Maybe try flattening it? I know with a file this size, experiments take time. Hope you get it working.

Edit:

I was looking at 360cities.net and they have a 40GB panorama. It has been done before (somehow). Hopefully this helps you in some way.

No layers there, so that's not it...

right, this could (would be) probably the problem in this case,

currently not, I'm working on PSB write support to solve such problems, but that's not ready yet,

best regards,
Klaus

Hi Klauss,

Thank you for getting back to me.

Very much looking forward to your PSB write support.

Really don't want to publish this work using anything less than KRPano - thank you for producing such a fantastic tool :-)

Best,

Henry

Where there is a will there is a way...

Thank you to Christian Bloch: http://panotoolsng.586017.n4.nabble.com/…-td3427328.html

Looks like you can use zoomify in Photoshop to output the image all chopped up and then you can code the KRPano xml to take the tiles: krpano 1.0.8 beta (Flash10, QTVR, Zoomify, Partials Panos, ...)

It's not ideal as the equirectangular projection is not as good for quality or performance but it is a damn sight better than nothing!

Hope this helps other people who get stuck at this point.

Best,

Henry

The ImageMagick libraries recently received a fix for code related to the PSD and PSB file formats. There was a bug where a slice from the right hand side would be placed on the left hand side. I do not know the specifics about what was actually happening in the code.

Hi,

What PSB files are supported?
If I use PSB files created by PTGui* as source pics for KRpano Tools** droplets, I see black screen with controller buttons.
But KRpano Tools droplets work correctly after open-and-save PTGui PSB files in Photoshop... Different versions of PSB files? Compression?

* PTGui Pro v. 9.1beta3
** KRpano Tools 1.0.8.14

Hi,
What PSB files are supported?
krpano supports only flatten Photoshop documents (psd,psb) at the moment,
that means krpano will only read the background layer, all other layers were ignored,

PTGUI saves layered psd/psb files by default to be able to store the layer transparency (this is not possible with the background layer itself) - and in this case the background layer is just a big black image and this is also the reason why you get a black pano,

but PTGUI has also an option to save the psd/psb directly as flatten document,
see here:

Klaus
