Can I choose an area of a panorama to preserve on Deep Zoom export? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a pano tonight and the preview and thumbnail show a particular image I want, but when I export it as a Deep Zoom Tileset the image is missing.

    Is there any way to select part of the image to preserve similar to the video panorama tool?

  • Sorry, this is a know issue in ICE.  Sometimes the export process makes different decisions than the preview process. 

    The "simplest" way that I can think of to work around this is to edit the source images.  You need to add an alpha channel to the source image in question.   One way to do create an alpha channel is Photoshop - explained in this tutorial (http://www.axialis.com/tutorials/tutorial-misc001.html).  Next you need to clear the alpha channel in the regions that you DON'T want.  This is the opposite of the video pano tool where you are indicating what to DO want.  I realize that this is a painful process, but it's the best I can think of.
