Before anything else, I would be interested to know, have you managed to get this to work with PTGui's own player? If so, I would like to see, and how it deals with non-2:1 images.Ruud de Soet wrote:In PTGui Pro I make the panorama but sometimes there are no control points in the sky or ground. The result will be a white circle in the upper or lower part of the panorama.
Yes the format must be 2:1, and no you cannot crop the panorama. You could just extend your panorama on top of a 2:1 canvas with a black background of course, which means there be a few black areas in the panorama, but mostly at top/bottom where people are not looking much.Ruud de Soet wrote:The format must be 2: 1 so I can’t crop the panorama.

Yes, in Marzipano I can add code to LIMIT the view to certain degrees up/down, or even entirely block up/down viewing. However, the image format itself must still be 2:1 ratio, so you must still prepare it like this, with some area in black or white. The only thing the view LIMITER does, is block the viewer from being able to pan past certain degrees. Also, even if I provide a setting for viewer limiting in any direction, how do you know how many degrees to block the up/down view at? It will be hard to find a number, and it would be different on different screens also, since mobile screens will have a larger vertical field of view. This doesn't seem productive.Ruud de Soet wrote:but I heard that the Marzipano tool has an option to limit the viewing direction (up/down). This means that we can stop viewing before the upper and lower white circles. If Marzipano has this option it would be nice that X3 will support this.
What I can offer, is an option to entirely BLOCK up/down viewing, which should provide a satisfactory result in your case.
