    Hi,

    It’s my first time getting to grips with a 360 camera. I have just bought a Samsung Gear 360 2017 camera.

    I’m looking to take numerous 360 images of the inside of a new building and to create a virtual tour.

    I have had a look online and come across a web based application called Cupix.

    Has anyone used it? Is there anything better out there? I don’t mind paying as long as it’s under £100.

    Thanks in advance.

    the most commonly used 360 tour apps are pano2vr, krpano, and kolor panotour, i use all of these for different types of tours but any will do a fine job, all have free demos you can play with to figure out which one you like best before purchase

    http://krpano.com
    http://www.kolor.com/panotour/
    http://ggnome.com/pano2vr

    marzipano is a good free open source alternative for creating 360 tours

    I use https://GoGira360.com . Super easy, super cheap. I also like that if you’re a real estate agent, it has some light lead capture tools available.

    Hi! I used the platform Lapentor for my diplomatic work, 360 virual interactive tour in museum. By the end, it’s being mistaken in preview mode. The scenes are 33. What tool can I use to make it again, but not a platform, I prefere a free software or an economic one.

    Thank you!

    Hi! You can also add Virtual Tour Easy on your list. They offer a Free Virtual Tour where you can embed and share them on any platforms online with full API access and deep insights through their built-in statistics.

    I have also tried the Virtual Tour creators the others mentioned and  I can say that Virtual Tour Easy is on par with them. Definitely a must-try!

    Thanks for all the links here. I wish there was software that didn’t require a monthly subscription. Also, it’s not apparent if these will mix both video and pictures. Is anybody doing this?

    both pano2vr and krpano allow mixing 360 panos still and video, and neither require any sort of subscription other than occasional paid updates, and you would of course have to pay for your own web hosting service as well

    Hello everyone! RTV’s virtual tour software allows for still photos, spherical panoramas and 1080 full-motion video playback. Everything is HTML 5 and we’re always working on adding in new features, listening to what photographers want and overall just making it better.  The virtual tour system is 100% white label and https secure.  We don’t have monthly fees and it’s a pay per tour fee – $12. While it’s mostly used for real estate, it also works well for putting together business virtual tours. RTV’s been working with and helping professional photographers stand out since 1999.  In 2005 we started sending photography and virtual reality jobs to the photographers in our network.  That has grown to quite a bit since then. There’s a free trial on our site if anyone would like to test it out. We’re a new member and I’m working on what our discount will be for IVRPA members.  If you do come to us from here please mention it and I’ll make sure that your Real Tour Vision salesperson does something special for you for being a member.  Blue Skies!

    What do you all think of 3d Vista? http://www.3dvista.com/en/products/virtualtour

    It’s another single purchase option rather than subscription, seems to be a bit more user friendly than krpano or Pano2VR.

    3D Vista has come a long way. I do like their marketing however I’ve never tried the system. There are benefits to both sides. If you’re not going to do a lot of tours a shelfware system is a decent way to go. You will have one cost and ZERO ongoing virtual tour software fees and the MOST flexibility on the product. This will require programming, launching a hosting server and keeping that going for the customer. The hosted and private labeled solutions come in very handy when you’re doing a lot of productions (especially good for real estate) and you need speed mixed with lots of features. These features will typically include weekly stats, lead capture, photo delivery tools, photography manager tools, single property websites and more.  It really all depends on what you need. We use a hosted solution over at our Traverse City real estate photography company here in Traverse City. We do about 1300 real estate productions a year and of those about 300 order drone with it. We could not do it without a pay per tour hosted solution.  Hope that helps!

    Thanks that’s interesting.

    Hosting etc not a problem, I work for a university and while we won’t be clearing anywhere near 1300 tours a year, the subscription models effectively lock themselves out of higher education. Our finance departments are often archaic and not set up for repeat payments so it’s only one off payment packages for us.
