Part 6: Creating the QTVR

Maybe you would like to correct some minor flaws in your panorama. The last (and maybe best) option to do so is by using the Pro-Version of PanoCube.
Please read the Documentation of PanoCube thoroughly. I will not explain the details of using the software here.


In the file Script.txt you will find the following line:
1    # create tiles for editing ( 0 = NO, 1 = YES). Default NO.
With this Option you will not create a .MOV-file immediately. Instead you will get back 6 cubefaces. This gives a good opportunity to correct some minor flaws in your panorama.

Before you create the final QTVR by dragging one of the faces back on PanoCube you should adapt the rest of the parameters in the script file:
            ### INITIAL VIEW DATA ###
0    # initial pan angle. Default is 0. From -180 to +180 range allowed.
0    # initial pitch angle. Default is 0. From -1800 to +1800 range allowed.
105    # initial field of view. Default is 70. From 5 to 140 range allowed.

--> Tip: If you want to start with a special pan/pitch/zoom you can find the appropriate values by viewing your panorama with PixScreen. In the lower right edge of the viewer's window you can read your values for Yaw (=Pan-180), Pitch, and FOV.

With # make html code ( 0 = NO, 1 = YES). Default NO. Panocube also generates a simple HTML-page which already has the basic code for inclusion.

At you can also generate the needed code with the Online-Page.(Scroll down for Quicktime)

Happy "panographing" and take a look down the page to see what we have achieved today!
