Xphase Pro S 360 16384x8192 images?

Post by iantresman » Thu Aug 22, 2019 5:18 pm

Just wondering whether Pano2VR software can:
  1. Handle images from the new Xphase Pro S 360 which are 16384x8192 pixels
  2. Resize the image for uploading to Street View which I believe has a maximum file size of 100MP (14000 x 7000)
Review of the Xphase Pro S 360.

Hi,
Pano2vR can work with the largest Giga Pixel images so this size is no problem as long as the images are of a type Pano2VR can use.
By default, Pano2VR remaps the images to 1200 x 6000 when uploading to Street View.
Regards,
Hopki

Just for clarification, and for anyone that's interested, the Google Street View API allows images up to 75Mb and 100 megapixels (reference). An image can not exceed either figure. So although the theoretical maximum resolution is 7,071 x 14,142 (based on SQRT(100M/2)), the filesize may or may not be greater than 75Mb, depending on the image compression.

The Pano2VR maximum filesize seems to be based on SQRT(75M/2) which gives 6,123 x 12,247 resolution, and hence a filesize of 75Mb no matter what the compression, and this seems to exceed the filesize of most 360 cameras.

I've now uploaded my first 7 panorama mini-tour to Street View with images from the XPhase S. Before doing so, I increased the maximum image width (File | Settings, Images, Stree View Upload) from 12,000px to 14,000px since 14,000 x 7,000 = 98Mpixles.
