We are glad to announce that in connection with the development of the TrueVirtualTours platform and the transfer of panoramas to the AWS S3 cloud storage, it was decided to make a number of changes designed to simplify the work with the site and make it faster and more accessible!
"What is crooked cannot be made straight" said the wise King Solomon, and yet we will try to make straight the horizon and vertical lines of the "crooked" spherical panorama. Correction of the horizon of the S-shaped horizon of the panorama.
The results of the competition for the best works from July to September 2020.
Short instruction for shooting spherical panoramas.
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.
The order is as follows: 1) upload to the site spherical panoramas from which you plan to create a virtual tour; 2) from the list of uploaded panoramas add each panorama to the virtual tour (Add to 3D tour link); 3) open the created virtual tour, edit the panorama order, select the main panorama, set transition points (tunnels).
DSLR and 360 camera. What is better for shooting virtual 3D interior tours?
Overview, comparison of cameras for shooting in 360 panoramas with examples of panoramas and virtual tours. The main characteristics for comparison are the resolution / number of effective pixels / the ability to manually set the exposure, ISO / save to RAW.
Rylo positions itself as an action camera with unsurpassed stabilization of 360° video. For me, one of the important indicators was the possibility of shooting 360° spherical panoramas in the resolution of 6000x3000. After more than six months of use, I can share how satisfied I am with the capabilities of the camera and whether the camera has met my expectations.
The question of choosing equipment for shooting spherical panoramas and creating virtual tours is one of the most important for a photographer - a panoramic photographer. On the TrueVirtualTours website, you have access to examples of work performed using one or other equipment and software.
Many novice photographers have probably seen interactive panoramas on the Internet where they can spin and see everything around them. Often such content is called 3d panoramas.
