Near full screen panoramas using java
I think I have found a technique for displaying PW3/4 panoramas at near full screen. I was looking for an alternative to using full screen QTVR's.
The key is to get the right ratio between image width and viewer width.
I used an original PW4 stitched .bmp image about 2500h x 5000w 33mb. In PS I resized it down to 1600h x 3200w 13mb and saved for web 1 time converted to jpg 1.3mb.
Then I display it with a viewer opening 450h x 900w pixels using Fulvio's Ptviewer 27L2_b8.jar. This jar does a good job of smooth rotation.
I use Easypano's Ptviewer Scripter for the tool bar hotzone areas for the < > and + - buttons.
It is also curious that the viewer height is (width 450px/ width1600px) 28% of the image height. In the past I have been recommending around 30 -35 %.
I am delivering these images using Fulvio's PTviewer 27L2_b8.jar viewer (36kb). In the past we have been using PTviewer.jar version 2.5 (24kb) .
Any thoughts ?
I am doing this for a client over in Weatherford Texas. It also is for our WWP entries.
