Image not circular (with gap) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use `The Panorama Factory' from Smoky City Design.

    1 - I create panoramic output image (*.png or *.tif) with The Panorama Factory

    2 - I create *.mov file from output file with Pano2QTVR Gui

    I get working panorama, circular - 360deg.


    Now, i use hdmake  with file (*.png or *.tif) from stage (1), from previous example


    hdmake.exe -src panorama.png -xmlcntrcyl  panorama.xml 51.159


    At end, I have:


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
            rollPitchYaw="0 0 0"

    and directory [tiles]


    I have working panoramic image, but - image is not circular: end of image is not connected with beginning of image. There is black gap.

    You should specify the horizontal field of view on the hdmake command line.  From your mail it sounds like the FOV is 360 not 51.159.  So please do:


        hdmake.exe -src panorama.png -xmlcntrcyl  panorama.xml 360

  • Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!


    I thought, that was a VERTICAL FOV!


    Please - more help for beginners!

    Maybe - more help for Panorama Factory users?


    Now it is OK - very good tool, I only need better pictures for panoramas!




    One more question:


    I have 64-bit Vista.



    If I use IE 32-bit and I open web page (it is om my local HD) with HDview - it is working.



    If I open IE 64-bit - with any web page

    and next

    I open IE (32-bit)  with HDview - HDView is NOT WORKING!

  • It's a known issue that we don't run on 64bit IE.  We will need to release a 64bit version of HD View in order to support 64bit IE. 


    However it sounds like you are saying that you can't run the 32bit version if a 64bit IE is running.  We tried the steps below and couldn't reproduce the issue.  If you could give any more details, then that would help us dig deeper.


    On a Vista-x64 box:


    1.       Run IE*32 and make sure HDView works

    2.       Exit IE*32

    3.       Run IE*64, leaving it at live.com (my home page). Confirm 64-bit iexplore.exe in task manager.

    4.       Run IE*32, confirming “iexplore.exe*32” in task manager, along side existing 64-bit instance.

    5.       Fire up HDView in IE*32. Works great. IE*64 instance still running happily alongside.


    So I’m not sure what’s happening. I’m hitting http://research.microsoft.com/ivm/HDView/HDGigapixel.htm for the test.

  • Sorry, my error!

    If i run panorama from disk, by clicking on html-file (when IE64 running) - and I get IE64...

    I though, that was IE32, because IE32 is default browser .
