After viewing the @Svendus rendition of my Full Moon time-lapse video using Pano2VR I decided to download the trial version of Pano2VR and see what I could do with it. The attached link is to my own private server which is hosting the Pano2VR player and my Full Moon time-lapse video (actually two copies of the video in two separate resolutions to allow for viewing at best resolution over a wider range of devices).
I copied one of the skins that came with Pano2VR Version 5.2 beta3 (build date 14 April 2017 64bit Cocoa) and modified it to have controls that I thought were necessary to study the Full Moon and Jupiter transition across the sky. I also tried to position the starting 360 view so that it was at the correct location for the Moon/Jupiter rise. I was using a 13 inch Macbook Pro retina for viewing when I was doing this optimization.
I want to thank Jesse and crew of THETA Unofficial Guide 360 for throwing out this challenge and @Svendus for getting me interested in using Pano2VR. I have only been using Pano2VR for a couple of days and I have not begin to scratch the surface of it’s capabilities.
And now the link:
Full Moon Time-Lapse
The above link will be a “work in progress” as I continue to learn more about using Pano2VR and further customize my video presentation.
I have found that when using my iPhone that I need to double tap the screen to have the video controls appear on the screen.
Also on devices with gyro control you need to be facing North with your device vertical to have the screen aligned so that it will be looking at the optimal viewing spot for Moon/Jupiter rise.
