A “hidden gem” of a .Mac member’s page is Hans Inge Hagen’s collection of 132 (and counting) QTVR panorama 360-degree movies he’s made in locations such as Norway, Greece, Spain, the Carribean, and Trinidad. The QTVR’s are fast loading QuickTime files. We know we are risking sending enough traffic to trip Apple’s .Mac limits…
(If a .Mac user’s website receives more than 500 hits in a six-hour period, the user is limited to roughly two times their iDisk capacity of data throughput in that six-hour period. .Mac users who have upgraded their iDisk capacity will have additional bandwidth. If an upgraded user’s website receives FEWER than 500 hits in a six-hour period, the user is limited to roughly 14 times their iDisk capacity in that six-hour period. If an upgraded user’s website receives MORE than 500 hits in a six-hour period, the user is limited to 2.5 times their iDisk capacity in that 6 hour period. When these limitations are exceeded, that .Mac user’s websites will be disabled for a period of up to, but not greater than, 12 hours. The limits stated here are subject to change without notice.)
…however, the risk is well worth it. Take a look here.
Very, very, very nice!
Wow – that’s a lot of work and traveling.
Content is king! I beleive it�s the most importaint thing for a sucessfull webpage, today. I like technology, but without content, technology is nothing.
For people how like to make the QTVRs the way I have done it here, take time to see the tutorial I have made:
No sound at this moment.
Use Quick Time Player -> Open URL in New Player ..
QuickTime VR is still an amazing tool.
Nice to see another example of excellent VR work.
Hans, did you have any problems using QTVRAS from OSX? Also nice to see that tool still in use.
Nothing beats the real thing, but these classy qtr’s sure come close. Marvelous….
QTVRAS works just fine with OS X. It runs under Classic Mode of course, but it runs nicely. Kaidan still sell a LOT of QTVRAS. It’s still a great application.
Jim, nice to hear that.
I miss working on it. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />
There are a lot of different tools for making great QTVRs. Jim, will know that. But, I believe that Apple Quick Time VR Studio is still the greatest tool for making VRs fast, good and easy. AQTVRS are the grandfather of these tools. And the oldest knows best, right? I hope that Apple will take up the development and make a OSX version of the great tool. I keep using the 1.01 in classic mode till that happens. I have also discoverd a set of “new” tools (for me) that will enhance the experience. Offcourse, the “SAVR”-tools by Squamish Media Group are good (in classic aswell). The VRHotwire tools (see the demo at [url=http://www.harlands.com]http://www.harlands.com)[/url] and I find a great potential in the new “eZediaQTI” by eZedia (interactive QT authoring tool). I guess there are a lot of tools out there. I like the one made for the mac (I am a 100% Mac man). The interesting thing is to make great content. Good interactive content.
Man, this site is so nice… I am so jealous… I wish I could travel like he does… This is THE site that should have won all the .Mac contests…
