How to publish 360 panorama on my web page?
Posted: 19 Aug 2011 at 2:24 GMT
I heard the best way is to use flash, but I dont no anything about flash. What would be the workflow for this? I need something easy for me and my clients.

Take a look at...
1. Pano2VR:

2. Panotour/Panotour Pro:

I have recently started to use Flash Panorama Player, using Flashificator as the GUI.

It is a little fiddly at first, especially when coming to it from Pano2VR, but there is a lot of logic in the GUI and once you know the rules of the game, it becomes considerably easier than anything I have used before.

There are excellent tutorials now on FFC's website, making things a lot easier, and the nice thing is that one can record actions, which allow for a greater expression in skin making.

I have never used Panotour, but am also an advocate of Pano2VR is you want a simple means of going forward. The whole business of developing skins using the skin editor can be a little daunting, but there are plenty of people willing to share with you what they have done, which provides good examples to dissect; furthermore, there are free and easily affordable skins available through the Garden Gnome website.

Thanks for the tips. So how does this applications work? They create some interface to the panoramas and than output it in SWF (?) with some kind of a code that I will add to the web page? (I'm not a coder or scripter, I know only HTML basics...)

Thanks smigrod, but I need something I can create by myself without third party services, but I will look at it.

Why not download Pano2vr and Panotour/Panotour pro and see how they work?

I will do that... I was just wondering if I need coding skills for publishing panoramas or those applications do this for me...

Pano2VR, Panotour and Panotour Pro can all create a basic Web page for you too.

pano2vr, krpano, panotour, flashificator etc can all give you a finished html & flash .swf files which needs only to be uploaded to your server, and will not require any coding skills unless you wish to modify the html page in some way

"publishing" an individual webpage for a single panorama as above is very simple, you just need a webhost and an ftp program of course to upload your pano + html files to your site

creating a coherent website (not just a group of unconnected pages) is a bit more complex, wordpress & panopress are my tools of choice for creating a well organized, easily maintainable panorama website like samrohn.com

wordpress.org
panopress.org

and of course, you can host your panoramas for free on sites like these

www.tourwrist.com
viewat.org
www.360cities.net
www.panogio.com

Simple
No coding skills needed
Easy for you and your clients

View this video to see how you would make a simple project:

The published output has everything web-ready. Sipmply upload the published folder that contains the project, to your (or your client's) domain, and it is ready for people to view.
