Re: Flash image quality

LOL - no problem. They're all shots with the old gear and will gradually be phased out.

And you're right - I forgot to add the link to the QuickTime version.

Re: Flash image quality

Texas - maybe thats my issue. I've been importing the high res equi TIFF and exporting as a SWF. I wasn't converting to cube faces because I though that step was only applicable to Quicktime formats?

Re: Flash image quality

I agree - it looks like my old set up with the Nikon 5700 and FCe9 camera.

Here is the same equi produced as a QTVR with the quality set to 77%.
The end result is a much higher quality pano from the exact same equirectangular image.

Any tips?

Re: Flash image quality

This is a SWF created by Pano2VR. All the Image Quality settings were set to 100% http://www.the360co.com/sandbox/swf/index.htm The source Tif is a pin sharp 22MB 4000 x 2000 file taken with a Nikon D200/Sigma setup. When I convert it to a QTVR the quality is great but the SWF is a lot less sharp. T...

Interface explanation

Is there a definitive guide to all GUI on Pano2QTVR? I'm clear on almost every function but don't understand the Stitcher Settings (under settings) that say Interpolator and give options in the drop down box. What are these and how do they affect the final QTVR or SWF. Which one should I choose and ...

Flash image quality

I've been playing around with Pano2VRbeta and comparing it with Pano2QTVR and I notice that any Flash 360s I produce with Pano2VR are not as sharp as it's older brother. I've used the same source equirectangular image and ensured that the quality on all settings was at 100% but it's still producing ...

Thanks Hum@noid.

It looks like we need to upgrade alright.

I know someone who is going to let us try their Nikon D200 and a Sigma lens. Would this produce good quality photographs?

Detail and file size

I'm a little confused about something. Looking at people's flash panos, I am amazed at the quality. Am I doing something wrong or am I using whats now considered 'old' gear. I shoot with a Nikon CoolPix 5700 with an FC-E9 and produce a equi image of about 3000 x 1500 pixels. My output .MOV window si...
