ano2VR is an easy to use tool which can help you transform your ordinary panoramic images into Flash 10, HTML5 or QuickTime VR interactive panoramas.
This means that from a simple panorama of a museum chamber you can create an explorable room which would bring the viewer close to the real thing. You can also use the app to generate gigapixel panoramas, which can store huge amounts of details.
Pano2VR displays a user-friendly interface which is even friendlier if you’re familiar to this type of tool. It supports flat, cylindrical, spherical, T, strip style panoramas and enables you to work with image formats such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PSD, Radiance HDR and QuickTime VR.
To create the interactive 360 panorama, you need to load the source image, adjust its viewing parameters, choose the output format and that’s about it if you’re looking for a quick and easy export.
There are a lot of things you can do to enhance the panorama. For instance, it’s possible to attach a large amount of use data (title, copyright, source, comment, etc), create hotspots, insert media items and more. Converting a strip panorama into a cylindrical one normally leaves you with the top and bottom black or another color that is basically dead space. Pano2VR offers a very easy to use feature that fixes that using a patch tool.
Pano2VR also allows you to create a custom skin for your 360 panorama. You are able to add buttons and graphics and configure the way a viewer uses them. Moreover, you can even add other animations inside the panorama along with sound effects which make for a more enjoyable experience when exploring it.
A thing that can definitely catch your attention if you intend to create very large panoramas is the fact that the Pano2VR supports multiresolution. This means that your exported file is sliced into multiple smaller panoramas at different levels of details, which allows for a shorter load time.
