MAKE VTOUR (NORMAL) droplet has a limit of panos to process ?

I'm trying to process 200 panos at the same time with the droplet but it's just starting and closing immediately, I could make it work with a maximum of 94 panos

Does anyone have some experience with that issue?

thanks

Yes, I experienced this issue many times. Seems that it depends on the computer utself and size of the source images. With big amounts of panos I just processed them in several bunches and then just added new panos to the "tour/panos" folder and scenes into the first "tour.xml'.
Regards,

Alexey

Hi,

this has nothing to do with the available memory or the size of the images - that's an OS limitation related to the length of an application call.

For example - when dropping 3 images from the folder 'c:\panos\' on a droplet, then the resulting call of the krpano tools that will be sent to the OS might look like this:

Source code

1
c:\path-to-krpano\krpanotools64.exe makepano -config=templates\vtour-multires.config c:\pano\image1.jpg c:\pano\image2.jpg c:\pano\image3.jpg

and the total length (count of characters) of that call is limited by the OS (the exact limit can differ from OS to OS and OS version to OS version). Once this limit will be exceeded the OS will skip/ignore the call.

Ways to bypass this limitation can be either using 'shorter paths' to the images or call the krpano tools from command-line and use 'wildcards' for the image selection, then there is no limit for the number of input images.

E.g. when using the '*.jpg' as input, all jpeg files in the given folder will be used:

Source code

1
c:\path-to-krpano\krpanotools64.exe makepano -config=templates\vtour-multires.config c:\pano\*.jpg


Best regards,
Klaus
