Feedback appreciated

I just re did a tour I made 3 years ago, this time using tourweaver instead of the abandonware I used back then.
See it here. Most of the pano's are shot with a Peleng 8mm, except for the 'habitacion doble', 'suite', 'piscina cubierta', en 'vista sobre la Parana'. These were shot last week with an 8mm Samyang clone.

In fact, there are 3 tours. There is the normal flash tour for pc's made with panoweaver, there is a simpeler version for html5 supporting iDevices, and I made a switch on the flash part, every flash supporting device with a screen width less than 801 pixels also gets a simpler tour also in a lower resolution. This is especially for Android smart phone. iStuff and Android versions are generated with another program because of the lack of html5 options at this moment in panoweaver.

Your feedback is appreciated.

later,
Ronald

Nice tour Ronald, my only observation was the looooong loading time, almost 60 seconds for me. Too long to keep someone on the hook.

Thanks Nerjaace. Loading speed might be a server issue, it loads here normally on an empty cache. (I'm in Buenos Aires, the hosting server somewhere in the USA).

*edit: what did you use to look? pc or mobile device?*

Vilmer

Nice tour and the load time was very fast for me - viewed on PC (Laptop) and had no slow issues what soever.  Nice crisp scenes (if anything I think the zoom in feature goes in to much) whereas the scene gets fuzzy, but none the less it is a very well done tour

Hi Vilmer, you are right, it loads fine today, I must have had a slow broadband day!

Very nice !

What technique did you used to remove the tripod ?
It is nearly perfect [:^:]

Tnx people, glad the speed was not an issue after all. There's only one thing I hate more than warm beer, and that's a slow loading tour!
Good tip on the zooming limit, never used it actually. But it's of no use to zoom to far.

Dominique, for the older images I converted the equirectangulars to cube faces, and just cloned/healed/copied surrounding areas of the tripod to removed it. On the ones I shot last week I followed this tutorial.

Anyone tried with mobile devices?

Tnx,
Ronald
