How to animate a panoramic photo

Some users to whom I sent links to view panoramic photos could not at first figure out how to properly rotate the panorama around me, or at first did not realize that the wheel could zoom in or out the scene.  For such cases, the True Virtual Tours website has a Video Editor feature. In case of its application, before the user who opened the panorama by the link, the script of the "flyby" invented by you immediately starts. That is, the camera rotates or focuses as you yourself previously configured. Thus, you helped our customer to quickly examine the space around "himself" in a panoramic picture and at the same time encouraged him to think that he could perform the same actions with the help of the mouse buttons or the wheel.

Я хотел бы рассказать о своем опыте использования сайта True Virtual Tours. У меня на днях случилось "открытие" в моём личном масштабе. Когда я только начинал использовать ресурсы сайта, то я не обратил внимание на возможность анимирования 360-градусного фото. То есть я только загружал панорамы и генерировал ссылки для перехода и просмотра их третьими лицами. Всё.

Но как-то раз, просматривая очередные работы "старожил" портала, я наткнулся на одну панораму, которая после открытия в полноэкранном режиме сразу же начала поворачивать камеру вокруг точки наблюдателя. null

Тут я сильно удивился, поскольку ранее не видел чтобы такая опция присутствовала в наборе функционала сайта. Я стал искать и обнаружил, что оказывается эту функцию я уже видел самом начале, только не совсем правильно её интерпретировал. Эта функция называется Видеоредактор. Сейчас она в опциях помечена как "(бета)". null

Эта опция изначально не вызывала у меня связи со статичной фотографией, пускай и 360-градусной. То есть я как-то автоматически с самого начала думал, что эта опция предназначена для панорамных видео, то есть когда воспроизводится видео с камеры которая умеет снимать параллельно с обзором 360° и сшивать на лету аппаратно для соответствующего проигрывания. И полагал, что именно для таких видео предназначена функция Видеоредактор(бета).

После этого уже в принципе в первый раз задействовал эту функцию применительно к своим "рендерингам" и обнаружил, что она здорово помогает в подаче панорамы вовне.

Здесь имею в виду прежде всего привлекательность результата, который откроет на своём экране ваш конечный клиент/партнёр, кому вы пошлете свою работу. Когда человек открывает впервые вашу ссылку, например с этим панорамными фото, то он ещё как правило не знает что это фотография "кликабельна", то есть что она может приводиться в движение мышью. Первое, что приходит на ум, что это статичная Фотография, к которой добавлен эффект смещения камеры. То есть немного камера с одного угла в другой смещается, но в целом снимок двухмерный.

Он ещё не знает, что открытая им фотография обладает "полуобъёмностью" или бесконечностью, где он может смещать взгляд, но не находить края. И вот чтобы передать это ощущение объёмности и заодно подтолкнуть человека к мысли, что он может этой фотографией и сам управлять как-то, я задействую Видеоредактор. null

Добаляя фокусировку ближе-дальше я могу косвенно натолкнуть просматривающего на мысль, что можно не только кликать или тягать по сторонам, но и задействовать колесико мышки.

Анимация из Видеоредактора по умолчанию циклическая. То есть переходы между точками будут повторяться до тех пор, пока человек не возьмёт управление на себя. То есть первый после открытия раз кликнет в панораму и начнёт тянуть или крутить колесо мыши.

Моя статистика показывает, что большинство тех, кто загружает панорамы, до этого ещё не пользовались вышеописанной функцией анимирования панорамных фотографий. Чтобы облегчить остальным пользователям знакомство с функцией Видеоредактора мною было смонтировано небольшое видео.

    Yes, indeed, at present, the movement is launched only in a separately open panorama. The tour remains a bunch of "static" panoramas. The developers have yet to work on this.

    I realized that this applies only to a separate panorama, the tour is not reproduced in motion.

    Super! Everything is simple and clear! You must definitely edit the Tours!
