hello all,

wondering if anyone knew anything about creating a virtual tour. i know the basic ideas (get panoramic photos of the place etc)

but if anyone knew of a good site that explained it well, or any tutorials any one might have or know of on the net. i really want to be able to create a virtual tour of my apartment to begin with, then use the technique within websites that i might create in the future.

thanks all

there are loads of options

there are applets, flash, vrml, 3dmax (what happened to vrml?)

how much detail do you want?

you can create 360deg visuals on x,y,z axis or just panoramic visuals controling the horizontal axis or you can be super bling and create a walkthrough of a building

example... (you may be prompted to install J2ee plugin)
virtual tours ('http://www.demicron.com/gallery/index.html#')

if you are wanting to use a photo then you will need panoramic stitching software.

flash would be the easiest to develop and most people will be able to view it without having to download any special plugin's

In my humble opinion the best looking v tours (panoramic photos stitched) have been created in Quicktime but I have not attempted to do one in flash for sometime.
