Volcanic haze in Hawaii

Hi David, 7 shots handheld, Canon 5Dmkii, EF70-200 f/2.8L IS at 160mm, f/5, 1/2500, ISO 400. Processed the raw files in photoshop. Output 21mp, 16-bit tiffs. Over to PTGUI. Output a cropped, 24586 x 3271 rectangular panorama. Back to photoshop to tweak curves, vibrance, and a little noise reduction. Dropped the pano onto Krpano tools' MAKE PANO (FLAT) droplet. Default settings. It created about 5.5mb worth of image tiles. Easy! You can see the iconic Diamond Head silhouetted in the shot. I coupl...

Volcanic haze in Hawaii

The volcano on the Big Island has been spewing out more smoke, and this is an El NiƱo year so the tradewinds are less reliable. So we've had a lot of vog (volcanic fog) lately. This is looking east towards Honolulu.

A couple of actionscript errors...

Aaah, thanks Shanti! That explains why these tours don't have the error...they have a map (tab on the right). Trouble is, my coder said that the way to eliminate the map is to simply not include the .png. I really need to find someone capable of doing surgery on his .fla to fix this stuff...

A couple of actionscript errors...

Anybody want to take a guess at the nature of these errors shown in the Flash debug player? Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2035: URL Not Found. Tour is here. Incidentally, if anyone is interested in working on this, please PM me. I have a number of fixes & improvements I'd like done and my coder has left the scene. Dave

Still image display

My ideal solution would be an xml file for each still image. Something like this: Source code 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 <krpano version='1.0.8' > <image type='STILL'> <preview url='../previewimages/001.jpg' /> <url='../images/001.jpg' /> <displaytype='FITSCREEN' /> (the other type would be 'FILLSCREEN') <padding='30px' /> (optional - default would be 0 pixels) <bgcolor='BLACK' /> (or maybe a semi-transparent lightbox-style background?) </image> </krpano> If we had a 'STILL' image param in krpano, the ad...

Limit panning speed

Hi Shanti, I would like the thumbs to be able to display stills also. Not over a panorama - in place of it. Unlike the simpleviewer sample, I would like the stills to fit within the entire screen. Have a look at this slideshow - click the fullscreen button and note how each image fits the screen, regardless of it's aspect ratio. That's what I'm looking for. I want my virtual tours to display panos and stills, all in the same environment. I've thought of offering my virtual tour creator, but it n...

Limit panning speed

Thanks for your reply Graydon... I'm embarassed...I should have known that the mousespeed parameter would do the trick. It might be helpful to describe how my tours work. You can have a look here (click the "Interactive Virtual Tour" link). Here's the XML: Source code 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 ...

Limit panning speed

Hi Klaus, Is it possible to limit the panning speed, regardless of mouse sensitivity? Some people have commented that they spin too fast and get dizzy, even though I have mouse sensitivity set to what I feel is a comfortable level, if I set it any slower then others complain that they can't pan fast enough. I suppose that some people are not used to navigating a pano with their mouse and they over-control, and some people probably have their mouse set to move very fast - variable that we have no...

How to limit panning in a single scene of a virtual tour?

My developer went AWOL and I'm stuck trying to figure out how to limit panning for individual scenes in a virtual tour. The virtual tour contains an XML file that controls all of the scenes. Here it is in it's entirety: Source code 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 <krpano version="1.0.8"> <plugin n...

Ktransform on 16-bit tiffs

My workflow produces 16-bit tiff equirectangular panos. I must then make 8-bit copies of these so that ktransform can produce jpeg cubefaces for display in krpano. Is it possible to have ktransform work on 16-bit tiffs?

krpano 1.0.8 beta (Flash10, QTVR, Zoomify, Partials Panos, ...)

Looks great Klaus! I have an unlimited domain license. Can you explain the "branding free" additional license? I don't see anything on your purchase page. Dave Quoted from "klaus.krpano" - create "branding free" panoramas (additional license required!)

Limit vertical pan down

Hi, How do you limit the vertical pan so the tripod hole isn't visible? I've tried "limitview="lookat"", but this still makes the tripod hole visible when zooming out. Thanks, Dave

RE: RE: Size of krpano.swf

Quoted from "klaus.krpano" but is that really that important? the pano itself is in the most cases much bigger? You're right, it's not that important for broadband users, but I have been producing virtual tours for both broadband and dialup users. The dialup tours use a small image - under 150KB usually. What I would like is a stripped down SWF that only displays 4 sides of a cube and pans only left/right. No zooming, no hotspots, no options, no nothing. A teeny little Yugo for dialup users. Br...

Size of krpano.swf

A small issue but... 1.07 was 67KB...1.08 is 97KB...1.09 will be...? Believe it or not, there are still people surfing with dialup connections. Here in the U.S. it is 1 in 10. For them, every kilobyte counts. Immervision came up with an interesting solution: PureProfiler. With it you could select the options you needed and it created an optimized applet. Of course, Pureplayer was Java and krpano is Flash, but is it possible to do something similar?

Is it Flash 10-cubic-Mac happy?

Great work Klaus! :thumbsup: With the other Flash panorama players that support Flash 10, some have reported problems with Flash 10 & cubic display on the Mac OS. Apparently there are visual anomolies where the cube faces join. Can any Mac users here detect similar behavior with Krpano 1.0.8b1? Question for Klaus: Is there a performance difference (FPS or loading speed) between QTVR files and standard cube faces? Will a future version of krpano tools support QTVR creation?

Is there a way to prevent image theft?

I've recently discovered that someone has stolen images from one of my virtual tours and is using the images for commercial purposes. I presume they used the "print screen" button. It's an easy way to capture a scene from a fullscreen virtual tour, and it gives you a pretty high-res image to boot. In addition to putting a copyright message in the GUI of my virtual tours, I've been thinking it would be nice to make it a little harder for this kind of nefarious activity. Is it possible to disable ...

Image Caching for Virtual Tours

It would be great to have a reliable way to cache images while someone is viewing a virtual tour: After the first pano is loaded, to be able to specify which images to load next, in sequence. Also, since I'm working on a virtual tour GUI it would be nice to be able to determine when the images are being loaded, and when they are compleded loading into the cache so this activity can be reflected in the thumbnails. If someone chooses a scene that hasn't been cached yet, caching temporarily stops w...

Another request for still image display

Hi Klaus, It would be great if krpano could display rectilinear "stills". It could take any aspect ratio image and either fill the entire stage or fit into the stage. In the case of fit, specifying the background color would be nice. Also it would be nice to simply display the image's actual size. If the actual image size were large, one could implement a scripted movement like the sample Ronny gave. This is known as the Burns Effect. It might be especially compelling with Flash 10's graphics ca...

Nice!

Great Klaus! The post sharpening feature is fantastic! Looks like we'll have to wait for 1.0.8 to get Flash 10 support. When might that be?
