My last three Google Streetview tours using a series of 360 images and then joined using the Pano2VR software into a tour have not been given the blue line. Google say they no longer support that method and require a video instead. Is that correct?

They said:
Thank you for providing links to the tours! Actually this is an old feature where if you publish 360 photos consecutively you can get a blue line from them. However, since auto-connect got disabled, this is no longer the case. If you want to publish blue lines, you need to shoot in video mode.

Moving Topic to the correct forum.

Hmmm, we will have to have a look into this.
Thanks for the heads up.

I can see from another Google Street View photographer that takes a series of 360 degree images (rather than video) has also had the same change. There are a series of blue dots rather than it changing to a line. I know he uses the Google Streetview app and not Pano2 however.

Has anyone else had the same issues when using Pano2vr to make the tour when using a series of 360 images?
