the corner images are the logo of the company. I was just curious to see how it'd come across and also wanted to get away from the satndar square viewer.
I've been experimenting more with sharpness and have done a double sharpning technique as I feel that the images are otherwise just to soft. First I sharpened outlines and then applied unsharp mask at around 80%. This makes the images quite hard when just looking at the foto, but when in the viewer I get a stronger line that overrides the general softness. Each pano is 700x1500 with approx 180-200kb, the viewer size is 430x368 which is not quite what I wanted. I was wanting to go 350x300 but I've descovered that Tourweaver will strech the viewer size to the size of the mask. therefore one should build a mask in two stages. Part of it on the underlieing skin image and the say 10 pixel mask to go over the viewer, thus creating a smaller viewer size. This is also the most likly reason why Smooth is seeing judder... ie once a certain viewer size is genrated java starts to have difficulties driving the image smoothly over the hardware. Smaller viewer size... less CPU work. I dare say that the majority of non-pro PC users will have low end PC/software/ bandwidth... hhmmm. I'll post a smaller viewer size version at a later time.
I'll change my Logo-loading for easier reading. Have yet to work out how to make the movie (time) and will add a compass later. Also I'll add even more fotos, url's and have another fiddle with the design.
Smooth/Seaman is it possibly an issue over Sun Java/Microsoft JVM
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.
