Topic: Upload / Image pyramid on local disk?

Hello Marc,

A few years ago I created a tool to upload Gigapans to my own local server. It was a series of php scripts run on apache that mimicked the gigapan server and allowed me to use the gigapan upload program to dice up my image and save it locally in Gigapan format.

I posted the code in the old gigapan forum here http://forum.gigapan.org/viewtopic.php?p=2646 , it should still work.

An alternative would be to buy a license for the excellent Krpano viewer http://Krpano.com and use the included dicing tool and the Krpano viewer, (which can display 360 degre panoramas as well as flat panoramas by setting the field of view to 1 degree. I use the Krpano viewer to deliver the Gigapans in 360 degrees at http://www.3d-360.com/34725

Good luck

Jason

Topic: Upload / Image pyramid on local disk?

Is there any way to use the uploader (or another tool) to create a local image pyramid in gigapan format? I have a panorama made with an external stitcher (it failed to stitch in the gigapan stitcher) that I want to burn to DVD for offline viewing…

Topic: Embedding / iOS link

iOS compatibility is a great addition! It could be seamless if you detect that you are being browsed by an iOS device. This has been done by other sites as shown by the scripts at this site: http://davidwalsh.name/detect-iphone It would be even better if it is done at the main GigaPan page where the Shuttle pans are and right when clicking on the thumbnails in the list pages.

Thanks GigaPan team for your efforts in getting away from Flash.

Topic: Embedding / iOS link

I notice that when viewing the gigapan site from an iOS device that there’s now a link that allows viewing each gigapan without flash. Any chance that this may become accessible for embedded images?

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / iPhone 4S with Epic?

I think this would be a killer idea.
I know Diffcase makes a really good tripod case for the iPhone.

Currently the iPhone 4S volume button functions as a shutter release—but an electronic way—via an Gigapan app might be hit the tipping point for mass adoption.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / astro use of Epic Pro?

I would like to use my ELite Pro for Astro photography, to do wide-field images of the stars during which the mount would rotate 15 degrees per hour (left or right, depending on hemisphere setting). I’d orient the mount to point to the North Star, so only the left/right motor would have to be engaged…

seems like this is just a Simple Matter of Programming…

Try http://www.3d-360.com/view-remote-image-in-3d-3… where site is your images Gigapan url.

Its embedable too

<iframe src=‘http://www.3d-360.com/view-remote-image-in-3d-360-degree-viewer.php?site=http://www.gigapan.com/gigapans/12345’ border=0 width=800 height=400 scrolling=no>

http://www.3d-360.com is a site dedicated to providing 3d stereo-graphic panoramas (as in like Avatar type 3-D) with anaglyph, side by side, and wiggle view of left and right eye panoramas. In the effort to spread the word about these amazing immersive panoramas, I provide a link to the page in the viewer as my only tax for providing this service. I hope that you may find it useful.

Topic: Embedding / Facebook linking

Pasting the individual gigapan url on facebook status line does not always generate a thumbnail. A blind URL is not going to generate much interest. How do I get a big juicy thumbnail every time?

A newbie appreciates the help.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for quick reply.
I try to change to Chrome from IE8 the browser. Symptoms that still did not vary
Apparently, I have set the display range of ipad that.
I hope above, becomes a hint of resolution.
I am looking forward to that you will be able to improve.
Thank you very much.

Topic: Embedding / Embedding, need larger window

Hello Mamoru,

Thank you for your kind words. Your Panoramas are truly stunningly beautiful and technically perfect, very impressive!

I looked at your blog http://uhrp.imagefitter.com/ and discovered the problem you mention with my viewer, the onscreen controls “+” and “-” are not smooth on the ‘Flat’ panoramas (they are on the 360 degree virtual panoramas).

The problem is with the plugin that provides the controls, it is not written for flat (1 degree) panoramas so its step increments are off. I am not the author of the plugin, but the source is available, so I will take a look at modifying it and will report back here when I have success. It does currently still work, just not as well as one would like.

Best

Jason

Hi Jason,

You can work as you wish my thanks to your suggestion.
For, you would like to see something resolved to have one.
It is “+” “in the flash window – is a feature of the” button.
“+”,“-” Step does not ’s smooth to co-button. Can not be trimmed for this purpose.
I hope that my wish will come true.

Best regards.

Topic: Upload / GigaPan upload from Linux

OK, I’ve tried to use upload.exe with an older version of Wine on my laptop, and this time it worked. I guess this is that cheaper workaround that I was looking for.

Thanks for listening :)

Topic: Upload / GigaPan upload from Linux

Thanks a lot. I’m aware of VirtualBox, but using it with Windows as a guest OS unfortunately requires buying a separate Windows license. I was hoping to find a cheaper workaround such as, perhaps, a browser-based uploader.

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / EPIC 100 and Canon T2i

Until I got the epic pro a few months ago, all my gigapans were shot on an old epic 100. with a canon T2i or T1i and the cheap 55-200 or the sigma equivalent lens. I got it free for a project so I’m not sure which model it was, I think it was one of the original ones they gave out to gigapan fellow a couple of years ago, so the newer epic 100 may be even more solid. I took care to get everything well centered when putting the camera on the mount and made sure the nut on the arm was very tight but I never ran into problems. I shot up to 12gp using this equipment.

See for example: http://gigapan.com/galleries/5582/gigapans

Topic: Upload / GigaPan upload from Linux

Ok, looks like the Linux version is not available, and there are no plans at this point when it might be. I’m not familiar which solutions you might use in place if Wine. However, here’s what i found, links below:

===
VirtualBox
Better for a lot less translates into the final client in this review, VirtualBox. Made by Oracle (acquired in its purchase of Sun Microsystems), this is a great VM client for Linux, Windows, and OS X.

Best of all, it’s free of charge.

Hello,

Does anyone have any hints how to upload a panoramic image from Linux? I’ve installed a Windows version, but upload.exe crashes under Wine :( The image in question was created with hugin, if this matters.

Thanks,
