How to create virtual 3D tour. Step-by-step instruction.

1. Upload your spherical panoramas

Click the "Upload Panorama" button in the top menu or from the "Profile" - "Panoramas" - "Upload Panorama" section. You can upload all panoramas from which you plan to create a virtual tour. After uploading, the panoramas will be available under the "Published" section. This means that your panoramas are available for viewing from your public page by other users.

After uploading, you can edit the uploaded panoramas - indicate a name, add a description, indicate a location on a world map, add tags, etc. As you add tags to the panorama you helping more people to find your panoramas.

2. Add each panorama to one or more virtual 3D tours

Go to the "Panoramas" - "Published" section (well, or another section where your panoramas are located). Under each panorama, the link "Add to 3D tour" will be available to you. Click on this link. A dialogue opens with a list of your virtual tours. If you do not have a single virtual tour, you can create it. Just enter the name of the tour in the search (input) field. If a tour with the same name is not found, the Create 3D Tour button will be available. After creating the tour will appear in the list below. Click on the tour name to add a panorama to the created tour.

Repeat step 2. for each panorama that you want to add to the virtual tour. One panorama can be added to several virtual tours.

3. Edit the created virtual 3D tourтуры

Go to the "Profile" - "Virtual tours" - "Drafts" section (new tours are first added to the draft section). Open the virtual tour you created. For convenience, you can open it in full screen. Turn on virtual tour editing mode (the red edit button). Here you can change the order of panoramas, select the main panorama that will open after the tour is open, place the transition points between panoramas (tunnels). See here for details on how to set transition points between panoramas.

After the tour is ready, open the dialog to edit the properties of the tour, and check the box published to publish your tour in the public section. Then your virtual tour will be available to users on your public page.

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.
