Advise on software needed to do interactive 360 degree Pano for homes

I am a realtor that is looking for the right program to start making interactive panos of homes and properties that I will be selling.
The camera I use for picture is a Canon Rebel T3I. I am pretty computer savy but for time sakes I would like something that is fairly simple to use but still delivers a good pano in the end. Thanks for any and all input.  Jody

Hi Jody,

It is recommended to download Easypano's Studio 2014 Professional, which includes

Panoweaver 9.00 and Tourweaver 7.80.

With Panoweaver 9.00, you can simply stich the pictures and publish the panorama

of home and with Tourweaver 7.80, you can make a virtual tour.


Besides, It would be better if you have a Fisheye lens and a Rotator which help to shoot the precise panoramic photos and creating them into a marvelous virtual tour.

And our Virtual Tour Outfit can perfectly meet the needs, which include a professional

Fisheye lens, a Rotator and Studio 2014 Professional Edition.


Best regards,

Helen

You'll want a fisheye lens and a virtual reality arm (rotator) for sure.  I've found that the Sigma 8mm is very standard for these types of pictures.  Heres a few articles to help you get started.  It takes a little time to calibrate the arm and learn how to take the pictures properly. http://rustyruss.hubpages.com/hub/panorma and heres one to learn how to take the pictures http://russhilarie.wordpress.com hopefully this helps you out.

Dear Jody,


I regularly teach realtors how to make interactive panos. Here is what I recommend in your case :

- 8 mm Samyang fisheye is OK. Not as good - optically speaking - as the 8mm Sigma but easiest to use with Autopano stitching softawre - that I use most of the time - Feel free to take a look at my website pages, you'll find other advices about equipment, softwares and virtual tours
