Now that you have the equirectangular image, start Pano2QTVR and “Create a new Project”.
Next, select the equirectangular image using the “..”. Then click on “Convert to Cubic”.
I personally use JPEG but you can use TIFF if you want to. JPEG smaller file size, TIFF bigger files size but loss lesser details.
Now you see 6 JPG images are created. We’ll just be working with “cube_5”.
Feed this image into Photoshop together with the nadir.jpb fro mthe zip file you have downloaded.
Select Crop and select out the area that we’ll use to cover the “hole”.
Move, turn around the image that you will use to cover the hole till it cover the area perfectly. You can use the Opacity level to lower down the opacity so you can see through the image and adjust. Remember to set it back to 100% when done.
Now to clean up the edges. Use Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All.Next select the brush tool.
When that’s done, it’s a good time to add your signature.
Merge all layers (in photoshop Ctrl + Shift + E)
Save cube5 and let’s go back to Pano2QTVR.
Nothing to Select or change just click “Convert to Equirectangular” now. Use a different filename and click OK.
Pano2QTVR will reimport all the 6 cubes including cube 5 that we have edited and recreate the final equirec image.
The final, no more holes.
Now the exciting part. We’ll be creating the actual pano Quicktime movie. Select the Settings tab in Pano2QTVR. Enter 800 x 450 in Window size, Enable Protection tick, Normal Quality for motion and click Create.
After running through some scriptts…
the movie will be generated.
