Hello,
For those who are doing full screen flash panoramas, what resolution and how many KB or MB are these files? My full screen QTVR files are typically 1.5 to 2 MB. I was hoping on a much smaller flash version that would look good in full screen.

Thank you.

1.5 to 2MB is EXTREMELY good for fullscreen. You should be happy.
Lower file sizes + quality are going to be affected by better lenses.

Thank you.

Sacha,
Thank you for the reply. I guess I was hoping that someone was producing wonderful full screen flash or java panoramas that were small enough for dial-up users to look at. I would like to give dial-up users the chance to look at full screen without having to wait five minutes.

You have a great website! What is the difference in file size between your smaller panoramas and the full screen ones? Do you have a preference between Flash and Immervision Java panoramas? On my machine at least, the Java panoramas tend to pan much smoother than the Flash panoramas from your site.

Regards,
Kevin

300-550 KB for windowed and 1.2 to 4 MB for Fullscreen.

My preference now days just to see something quickly, so I uses either deval or flash because of the loading time. Quicktime and java take some time to start, and shockwave takes a little shorter.

Yes, java is much smoother but flash is better supported by most computers.
