Line running down the middle of viewer

When my tours are viewed the is a line that runs down the middle of the viewing window. The line is not noticble if you stop the tour but when it plays it causes a slight ripple effect down the line. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Here is what a Michael had to say about the white line in my tour:

http://www.360digitalpics.com/WhisperingGlen/844900.html

Hello Robert,

What I happened to see when I clicked at "Front Porch" view is a white line stretching from the nadir cap up to the zenith. When this happened to me long ago it took me a while to find out about it and it may be true for your workflow as well:

If you use Photoshop (if not, you don't need to read further...) for resizing your image when all the retouching is done, make sure that you don't have an active selection rectangle. Press CTRL+D ("deselect all") before you resize. Otherwise you will notice a 1px wide 50% transparency at the left and right border of your image, resulting in this white line (you can only see it when zooming in to something like 800% or so).

Yours,
Michael

Hee, Robert. Thank you for this! It happened to me once a few weeks ago, and it drove me crazy! I thought it had something to do with pano2qtvr, but it was photoshop also.

I cannot find any evidence of the problem you stated? I looked with both IE 7.0 with Microsoft JVM and then Firefox with Sun Java. Don't why or what you are seeing? Can you take a screen capture?

I must say the latest version of Sun Java 1.60 (Sux!) it stalls and is just not nice.

Mate, Re: Tuition did I NOT reply? If not, contact me again - I have been very busy and may have overlooked your email.

Regards, Smooth

I too am experiening this problem but not always. I am using a large pano when I have the problem. I need to try and play around to see if it is related to the size. What size is your pano?

Do you think the line you are seeing is the "wrap" of the panorama image? Or something that is always there?
