Re: Standard VT to Google Street View

Unfortunately, I still haven't found a definitive answer for this. When shooting a Google Virtual Tour for building interiors, is it necessary to shoot a pano every 1 meter? Or will Google allow uploads of tours, which contain panos much further apart (E.g. a pano for each room)? Many thanks for any...

Re: Standard VT to Google Street View

Hi - looking at the webinar you suggested: https://ggnome.com/gg_webinars/build-a-single-project-for-street-view-and-html5-outputs/ ... the spins were in each room, distant from each other. However, whilst researching, I've seen comments saying each spin has to be around 1 meter apart - otherwise Go...

Re: Standard VT to Google Street View

Hi Hopki - I watched a few Pano2VR webinars for Street View, but didn't spot this one.

Thanks, I'll take a look.

Regards,

Standard VT to Google Street View

Hi there, Generally, how difficult is it to convert a standard Pano2VR tour to also output to a Google Street View? Are these two types of tours happy bedfellows within the same project, or is it recommended having two separate projects? Secondly, say a standard virtual tour is a local pub with one ...

Re: Google Street View - billing

Hi Hopki - thanks for getting back to me. Reason I ask, is the pricing information found on: https://mapsplatform.google.com/pricing ... and I thought the prices were referring to the number of times the "uploaded" virtual tour was viewed. However, after listening to a couple of your Googl...

Google Street View - billing

Hi there, With Google Street Views, there's a cost involved with the API (cost per x views). I was wondering how virtual tour businesses typically deal with this variable cost? Through Pano2VR, if you upload a customer's Street View via your own Google account, and it gets a lot of traffic, the VT b...

Source fIle - HDR

Hi there, Can you please advise what the best file format for PanoVR to work with is? I'm currently taking bracketed images and then combining them into a single tif panorama. Given the output of PanoVR will be optimised anyway, I'm guessing there's no need to work with really detailed files. Also, ...

Re: advice on camera equipment please

Hi there, OK, I've been reading around, comparing the 360 camera vs. DSLR routes. IMHO the 360 cameras appear to be more geared towards action shots and outdoor activities, than creating quality indoor tours. They can only shoot 360, crucially have smaller sensors than DSLRs, but still seem very exp...

Re: advice on camera equipment please

Hi there - sorry, been busy for a few days. Thanks for all the really helpful advice, I definitely have a lot more questions to ask. The main thing I need to understand, however, is the configuration time of a DSLR setup, each time I go "on-site". For argument's sake; say I've already spen...

advice on camera equipment please

Hello there, I'm currently setting up a virtual tour business, and looking to purchase a camera during the Black Friday sales. I would prefer to use a DSLR, but reading around, it looks to be a bit of a hassle configuring it on-site. I'd prefer a DSLR, because it could also be used for general photo...
