You are all welcome. Some of these i had not come across before when i was browsing just the other day. So any one of those hopefully are useful for everyone.

I've been using the FSP viewer for quite a while now, and it performs good (and offline, whereas PTGUI images can only be viewed online). The only thing is that a thin black line appears where the image borders itself. I read somewhere that you need to make the image 1 pixel wider in PS (add an extra line of copied pixels at one end), then shrink it again to 2:1. Would that be the correct way to get rid of the line?

I encountered some line where the borders are, but it's barely visible.
Haven't tried your solution yet, Ulco, but thanks for the tip.

That sounds very familiar. I know i read about the thin black line issue resolve somewhere a while back.

It's probably only really visible in small render sizes, and will probably not influence the judges' opinion, as it's going to be re-rendered in hir-res anyway.

I think someone posted somewhere that the  process TG3 uses eliminates that anyway.
something borrowed,
something Blue.

Don't forget about Pannellum
- https://pannellum.org/
- https://github.com/mpetroff/pannellum

also plays video... and works on mobiles - mostly :)


has a generator that creates multires panos and the iframe code needed to embed them.
Can also have hotspots to link to other panos...
