Virtual tour of Tallinn University

Post by lveerde » Sun Oct 09, 2016 10:15 am

This virtual tour consists 30 panoramas and many skin elements (pinned/aligned videos, google maps, animated hotspots etc). Hope it serves as a good (but not by far the absolute) example of what is possible to create with pano2VR.

Yhe virtual tour of Tallinn University:
http://virtualtour.tlu.ee

This virtual tour, created in 2016 summer, is the most complex I have yet made. Next ones are already in the pipeline though :)
I am still learning the many possibilities and combinations available in Pano2VR. Having used Flashificator (back in the days when Flash was the king) and Krpano, I feel Pano2VR gives me both speed and flexibility. Especially V5. So - big thanks for Pano2VR developers for creating this amazing program! Also thank you for the detailed documentation and video tutorials!

Your SITE is CLEAN, SIMPLE to navigate and photography well lighted. Thank you for showing us your GREAT WORK !!!

We are using a PC and Chrome browser. The distance [] boxes are not showing a mouse over label tooltip to indicate what we would see IF we clicked. Is there a visible mouse over label tool tip ?

? Many people visiting your site might like to know your Country ? Where in the world is this University Campus located ?

Thank you for your kind words.

The navigation hotspots have a mouse over action that shows node image and title

The smaller information hotspots do not have mouse over tooltip. They have red mouse over effect to indicate a clickable button.
Bad thing is, that if user opens a information box, it can be closed only by clicking this very same box. I would like it to be closed by clicking anwyhere on the panorama but did not find the way to do it. Is there an action trigger that allows one to trigger an action OnPressPanorama (or something similar)? So that if user clics anywhere or anything inside tour, something happens....

The Tallinn University is located in Estonia :). Will add the Text change to my ToDo list. Thanks.

Thanks :)
Regular panoramas are done with Sony A7R + Canon's old FD 15mm http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/co ... d.htm#15mm
For pole panoramas I used Sigma 8mm lens
And for the opening drone photo - Inspire 1 with standard camera+gimbal.
I always shoot with exposure bracketing.

We have bookmarked your Site, well done do you use a Sony E-mount adapter to mount the cannon objective on your Sony and do you get 180 fullframe on the 15 mm cannon?

The lens attatches to the camera body via simple FD-E metabones adapter. I guess the angle of view is not 180 degrees with 15mm on full frame. Should be lesser than that. Signa 8mm lens on full frame gives you that sphericat 180 degree fisheye frame on full frame.

That's a really fine tour. Congrats.
In particular I like the fact that your actual panos are considered. IE on the basketball court you've taken the players mid-shot instead of just placing the camera at the center of the room etc.


Coucld you share some Pano2VR info here? I understand if your technique is top-secret or proprietary.

1. Hotspots
How have you created animated hotspots? They grow in size and then reveal a thumbnail and a pano title.
I can only get my hotspots to change image and can't seem to apply any transition (grow, change alpha etc)

2. Information points
Similar to above, your info points pulse. I can see the CSS applied to these but did you achieve it with CSS or via the Pano2VR Gui?

3. People
In general, did you pose the students in the photographs and organise for certain individuals to be in certain photos doing certain things or were the students simply already there? I ask because I'm doing a Virtual Tour at the moment of some meeting spaces.

4.Table tennis
On the ground floor of the Silva building you have 2 people playing table tennis in your Pano. But they're moving on a looped animation.
How did you achieve this? it's a really great shot and brings the scene to life. A nice surprise too!


Thanks LVeerde
Would be grateful for any insights into your approach.

There is actually no special top secret or proprietary techniques in this tour. Pano2vr team has created nice video tutorials and documentation - one must just see and read as moch of it as possible and add just a little creativity :)

1. The hotsopt is fairly simple - it consists of hotspot template, border, hotspot name textfield and node image. To add the onhover scaling effect - both for node image and retangular border - instead of actions i have used "logic block" feature with transtion 0,4 sec.

2. Info points: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h449wL5oJI

3. In most cases the photoshoots were planned. People are aware that there will be 360 degree shooting and for long exposures or exposure bracketed panos I also asked them to not move while i take photograph. Whenever possible though, i prefer to shoot panos while people are naturally doing their thins - just trying to catch that perfect moment. This way, most people tend to be more natural and dynamic.

4. The movement in panoramas is possible with pinned and aligned video. A wonderful tutorial can be found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxWYDWxdD4k
Such pinned/aligned video can also be found in:
