How did you take the photos and how did you get them to line up ?

A little crude, I just put my camera and a decent tripod and panned round, then aligned the pics with Ulead Cool 360 plus a little help from photoshop.

I made the 360x180 pano at 8160 x 4080 and converted this with Pano2QTVR to tiles 2048x2048.

The source photos were the main issue, only taken with a 3mp powershot digital camera, about 40 photos in all.

WOW sounds like alot of work, but it is probably easier to get a alot of smaller photos to line up then a few larger ones.

Yep indeed was quite a task, but thanks to the guide in this thread I worked it out. Also a problem was that my camera's auto exposure mode meant I had to adjust the balance of each photo to try and get them all the same in the pano.

Another member of my club has a great digital camera and I'm hoping to convince him to do me a load of high res shots to make a real good version. Now I have done it a couple of times, it feels like an easier process.

- Previews are simple, just crop/scale and compress to dds. 1024x1024 for full, 64x64 for small.

Hi All !
First of all, I'd like to thank you all, this Thread is terrific. It helped me a lot using XTR scenaries in Phoenix.
But I have a little problem with Previews. I tried different things but did not manage to get a working preview.
Which file do I have to convert to DSS ? The original Reflex jpg file ? One of the 6 tiles ?
Thank you ,

Pablo
