      I see.

      Then Roger isn't going to be able to control your deval player's choice of
      projection via any embedded xml data from his jpg image.

      That would be interesting though.



      As to why, you'd have to contact the author of deval vr.

      Fiero.

      I downloaded it to my computer, then viewed it using Deval Player just as I
      would with my own pans. You are correct in that I have not tried multi-res
      pans yet.

      It's a JPG photo; there is no program that is performing pitch adjustment on
      it when you scroll the photo to look down.

      You probably have not seen an original equirectangular photo before. They
      are the standard container format for all spherical panoramic images before
      moving on to greener pastures as multi-resolution tiled cubical images.

      Amazing how quickly other peoples' situation goes to the back of our minds.
      The international news no longer concentrates on the efforts of the brave
      folk who still battle with the nuclear plants in your country. But thank
      goodness you still have somewhere like this to "rest and renew"

      My question, and admiration for your pan is how you manage to set it so
      there is no distortion when moving up or down. In most pans a building will
      "bend" towards the centre as you move higher up. In this everything remains
      vertical. How?

      Regards, Briar.

      Life has been difficult in Japan recently, although mercifully my
      wife and I are far enough away from the disaster area to be only
      indirectly affected.

      We got back today from a couple of days at Hakone, a lakeside
      hot-springs resort in the caldera of a long-dead volcano. We
      were blessed with one day of Japan's rare blue skies, and I took
      a few panoramas. The next day we were caught in a cable car
      while a gale was blowing. That was less fun!

      As I was preparing one this afternoon I recalled much of what I
      have learned here on the list. Using vertical line control points
      to straighten the panorama. Using the panorama editor to roughly
      position recalcitrant shots. Using PTgui's detail viewer to
      move seams away from problem areas. Using pseudo HDR techniques
      to boost shadow detail. Correctly positioning the crop circle.
      Eliminating control points that are not at ground level when
      using perspective correction for the nadir shot... and from clouds
      in the zenith shot (and wherever else a cloud appears). The list
      goes on and on. Any one of these, if ignored, could have spoiled
      the panorama. So thank you, list members!

      I've put a 5MB equirectangular file in my public dropbox. The
      subject is a truly fascinating open-air museum that specializes
      in modern sculpture. Unfortunately the statues are rather far
      apart, so a panorama tends to show mostly distant views, but
      if you are interested, take a look.

      monopod using a plastic ring mount made by Bo Sorensen.
