You need to be very careful when you are creating tours for web. remember that not all users have a good connection and Good mobile devices
Have you read this? it can be helpful
Wooow very cool
The link of the kickstarter campaign is not working. By the way do you have a youtube video where I can see it in action ?July 20, 2017 at 9:50 pm in reply to: The entire process of creating street view like tours #14308
Well I will try to explain a little this maybe someone can add more information.
The flat image has stitching mistakes, how can they be corrected, at which stage? Befor rendering, or afterwards, e.g. in photoshop?
You can do it in any time. you should use the best result for you.

I do not understand when you say “Ball like panorama”. But I will assume you are talking about the viewer of streetview where you can drag the scene in 360. For this you have lots of options. here a list:
In this site there is a list too. But in resume any of this program will give you the virtual your ready to be inserted in your web.
How do I create a google street view like tour with clickable arrows on the ground and the same image morph effect, instead of markers in the middle of the images like seen on tours created with pano tour software?
Well you can check the previous list and I will do a little bit of self publishing. I have a little service that help you to create virtual tours like street view please check it:
Which type of a file do I have to create to be able to view it as a ball-like panoramic image? How do I upload these on street view, how do I integrate these into websites?
Well to upload to streetview you only need to download the streetview app and upload your images. here a link for the requirements
But in order to create virtual tours with clickable arrows you to be a trusted professional by google and you need to pass a process. more info in this link
– Is there a viewer necessary to view the panorama image (or a tour) offline?
Well I use the LG 360 CAM Viewer that you can download here:
Well I hope I have been helpful
Could you post one of the images ??
I want to try on my side.. in order to discard that the problem is the image
I would like to see a photo taken on the night or in low light conditions.
Could you post an image in that condition ?
Hi, Did you test my little service ?
You can upload the image then it will create a panorama for you and you can embed it in any site with the iframe codeMarch 13, 2017 at 11:13 am in reply to: Example of good looking inside map – in which program it is posiible ? #12510
Well, commonly that mini map at the corner is just an image with points on it.
You just need a program or online service that let you create this image on 3D and later download that image to use it on your virtual tour.
I know that several services let you add this minimap normally its called “floor plan” and you just need use that image.
The only service that I know is this:
But if you search on google you will find similar. In “home.by.me” let you create a project for free, so you can use it. If you need more project you need to pay for it
I found this link of the tetha forum, they have a list very cool list of apps that you can use, please check it. Go to the top of the page to see the list
Tough question, I will try to give you my opinion like an owner of one online service like those you wrote.
1. Should I invest time into creating tours with pano2vr and like kind? Or are these going to be less relevant going forward when creating VR tours?
The only difference between them are that online services allow you host the panorama images in their on servers, So you only need to worry about sharing the virtual tour with your clients.
With Systems like Pano2vr, your tour is created and you have all the files needed, So you need to search a server where to publish your virtual tour.
In my opinion, these systems are the same thing, the only difference is how you share your virtual tour with your client.
2. Services such as walkinto and tourmake etc – are these the future of how tours will be made and hosted?
I think not, are only easier options to create virtual tours. If you want something personalized with your own ideas, you will end up with pano2vr or something that allow you manipulate the final result.
The advantage of these online services (called skin editors?) seems to be the connection with google maps and google street view (some say they will only allow googlestreetview photographers to use their service) The disadvantage is that tours now need a paid subscription – monthly, yearly and lifetime. I’m thinking that this is going to not only make me a tour creator but now VR tour manager.
Yes, we need to paid the hosting for all the images :)
Personally I think the future is this: https://aframe.io/ , is a web standard to create VR. If you really want to be a virtual creator you should learn aframe.io , but these need developer skills
I only could find this link:
I hope can help you
Woow that is very cool
Each tool has its own requirements, I have read the doc of marzipano and I found this:
“Flash is required to display panoramas on some browsers, such as IE8 and IE9. If the marzipano.swf file is not on the same path as the marzipano.js file, you must use the swfPath option when initializing Marzipano.”
Maybe this can be a problem to you because of this:
You should read the Doc of all the tools that you are planning to use. But mostly the paid service let you upload any size of image.February 7, 2017 at 12:19 pm in reply to: Forge.js: the free, open-source framework for the ultimate VR experiences #11916
Cool tool, I will check it to see if I can use it.
Thanks for the tutorials
All online virtual tour system that I have seen use iframe to insert tour in any site. I guess that is the option that you need, just choose one and use the iframe code like Sam told youNovember 24, 2016 at 9:29 am in reply to: How do I make a 180' interactive panorama that can be viewed with a VR headset? #11285
I only have suggestions that requiere programming skills.
Additionally to all the previous link you can try:
https://aframe.io/ : Is an opensource web VR framework and you can do what you want.
http://www.css3create.com/css/panorama3D/ that is only with CSS .
Well you can use any photo editor open source. I made a video about this , is for paneek users but you get the idea.October 25, 2016 at 11:23 am in reply to: Insert a file in WIX site that only supports codes html. #10985
The best you can do is hire a programmer if you do not know how to do it. I know that all the services that you mention give you a code that need to be add in your website like same told you
The only way to do that is like Sam told you with an “iframe” element that you need add in your html code. You search a services that allow you to do that
I like the idea but the market your pointing out is not the correct. My personal opinion is that your marker is normal people without professional cameras like the people you can find in this place.
Professional people will look this like a toy, I do not think they will buy it. This product is for casual users. You should rethink your target market.
I am not an expert but that is my opinion, sorry is was rude, that is not my intention.
I have develop a little service that allow you create virtual in google map like “yeung ka ho” wants. you can test it to see if work for you.
Allow you upload you own 360 photos and combine them with the oficial google maps, later you can create your own tour.
This project began like a simple hobby and with the time become on this, I work alone, so if you find some problems please tell me to fix them.
Is personal project. Thanks
