i am work at University in Macedonia..The first VR is from the faculty of computer science, and the second is from the rectorate..Hope you like it. :)
I convert all tours in PW to cubic output. This gives you the six sides of the "cube" and allows easy Photoshop away of ceiling and floor issues. Then convert back to equirectangular pano for publishing.
Don't forget that you can also use the data generated by TW to act as the link to a tour (TW always generates 2 html pages. 1 to act as a link with some code to be used to copy and paste into the site. The other containing the tour itself.) This will create a chromless stand alone window (i.e. no tool bar). The link at the bottom of this message is an example. I was using TW 6.5 for this which also allows to resize the image by dragging a corner.
Oh yes... before I forget, I'll be seeing this hotel client in May again and will be taking a number of additional "summer" shots. I'll also be redoing a number of the panos as I was'nt happy with the image quality. I realised in retrospect that I was making a mistake with my camera/lens set-up.
I use my trusty old Canon 30D with Sigma 8mm fisheye. For some reason or other I was setting depth of field or the F factor at 18 instead of 11-13 which is the optimum for sharper images. The link at the bottom shows the difference in image sharpness. Duuuuhhhhh!!!
So here's a little 6 image pano tour of a fitness studio using TW 6.5 for the first time. I'm quite pleased with my new navigation and hotspot design which I think looks fairly tidy and neat. I also added lens flare and the ability to resize the image by dragging a corner. Also note that all images (i.e. info and help) as well as navigation elements remain in the correct position no matter what the screen size. Thanks to EP for that ;-)
The tour is not yet integrated to the site.
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.
Nicely done mate!
About Aperture F/Stop and the Sigma 8mm Fisheye lens. Optimal sharpness is actually between f/5.6 and f/9.5 with F/8.0 the safest bet. Finding the Hyperfocal DOF distance that gives you greatest near and far focus and sharpness will go a long way to crispy images. I have found that forgetting the onboad scale and focusing on something 1.3 meters away from the focal plane marker is a suitable set up. You can see an example of mine using a Canon DSLR and Sigma 8mm fisheye here.
