Topic: Download a Huge Texture with UPano ?
I am trying HugeTexture which seems to be a fantastic asset (review very soon !) and I would like if there is a way to use the Dowloader script in UPano with a HugeTexture ?
If not, the only way to have a more detailed 360 photo is to convert it into cubefaces, right ? I mean 8192x8192 pix/6 side = about 400 MPixels.
The issue with a so large photo is that it might take a while to load/display. Something that would be very intersting, that almost all 360 softwares do, would be to have progressive resolution, exactly like tiled maps. 512x512x6, then 1024x1024x6 2048x2048x6 etc : then the tiles are loaded only if needed, when the user zooms into the 360 photo.
It takes more space on the disk but loading is much better. Don't hesitate to ask if not clear.
Another suggestion : the 16384 limit is a little bit to low, 32768 would be perfect for me if possible.
