It’s now possible to create 360 panoramas in the DJI Go4 app.
You can post these panoramas in the forum to be viewed interactively.
It’s also possible to create your own equirectangular panoramas in other stitching software such as PTGui, Hugin, AutoPano Giga, Microsoft ICE, to name a few.
Ideally, your equirectangle image should come out at size ratio of 2:1 or as close as possible to that.
Certainly the DJI Go4 app produces a perfect 2:1 ratio image of 4000x2000
Note: Both the M2P and M2Z produce hi-res stitched 360 Panorama images that can be posted to Kuula without any editing.
Step 1 - Upload a pano image
Upload the image to Kuula - https://kuula.co/ - up to 16,384 x 8,192
Step 2 - Get the embed code
Click on Share
Click on Export
Select "Embed code - (HTML)" and copy the code for the IFRAME (See Tip: See Note - below!)
Step 3 - Paste the copied HTML IFRAME code into a post …on a new line! (<iframe ……
For whatever reason, sometimes, the pasted HTML has
/iframe>. So these need to be edited.
Double-clicking a mouse on the HTML to highlight it sometimes avoids this - but can add a " ’ " at the beginning and end that need deleting.
Ensure that the opening “<” starts a new line without any spaces in front.
Best Solution for this Problem
- Use an intermediate paste into a text editor, Word, even a Tweet works … where it pastes correctly, and then copy that text back to a GADC post.
In testing this solution has so far proved 100% reliable!
Also, always a subjective thing, but there are three settings that can be set (before copying the Iframe code, that can improve the experience of the pano posted in GADC.
- Enable zoom controls - means … what it says … enables people to zoom using the mouse wheel.
Auto rotate - again, pretty self-explanatory … and best not to set too fast - around 10 to 15 usually works well.
