I recently switched to this software. Yesterday I published the first Street View tour from Pano2VR only to discover that the quality of the images in Google are really bad compared to what it looked like with the tools we used before.
So what I did:
  • Uploaded the panoramas (14'000 x 7'000) -> bad quality
  • Changed the setting (Images/Street View Upload) from 12'000 to 14'000 and uploaded again (after deleting the project first) -> same bad quality
  • Changed the settings back to 12'000 and made a new file with newly resized images to 12'000. Uploaded the project again after deleting it first. -> same bad quality
Here you can see the actual image (12'000 px): https://goo.gl/maps/etXr1oVPTRn

This is an image of an earlier project, with a different tool. This is the quality I want back: https://goo.gl/maps/msryXo4jEuj

So, something is definitely going wrong here. The only thing I haven't tried yet are the different interpolation filters in the Pano2VR settings. But they shouldn't be applied since my panos are already in the correct size.

How do your uploads look like? Better?

Thanks for the help.

Edit: And yes, after the first try I waited more than 24h, the only thing that changed were the navigation arrows.

Well that's a bit embarrassing:
First I'm glad nobody wasted too much time here except for me. Apparently while uploading to Googe Street View, the pictures get temporarily stored on Google Drive. Since we got a new Credit Card, our subscription there got cancelled and naturally we didn't have enough storage for a new upload, hence the bad quality.
Sorry I suspected your software. I'm really looking forward to working with it, now even more ;)

Glad you got to the bottom of it.
I have seen this before, someone posted the same a while back in the Facebook user group.

Thanks for this answer MPfammatter. I had the same problem and the same solution worked for me.
