Hi. I'm trying to get a QTVR (quicktime virtual reality panoramics)
authoring system setup so that I can offer QTVR panoramics to my
clients (running a new media studio).

I have a Olympus E-10 and a simple tripod. I want to know what I need
to purchase in order to have the full system. I think I need a special
tripod head and stitching software along with my tripod and camera.

However, there are so many different sites all offering different
advice and different software. I have around $800-$1200 to put into
purchasing equipment and software..

So my question is: what is the easiest way to setup a professional
QTVR authoring system and what is the best software & equipment to

Thank you.

Hi affordablemagic-ga,

Yes, that is the effect I want. I still think I need to get a special
tripod head which helps you to take the right number of photos at the
correct angles to create a full 360 panoramic. Finding out about the
special tripod head is my toughest obstacle. I am not sure how the
tripod head works in coordination with the software. Also, in regards
to software, a realviz stitcher and vr worx were both suggested - what
are the differences prices?
There is no answer at this time.

My name is Manisankar. I am from India. Here is few comments on your question

1. If you want to get a Virtual Reality kind of effect , then better
you choose flash instead and a intelligent photograpy which can be
used to create these effect.

2. There are plenty of software readily available in the market. I
don't suggest you them, because those are really very costly.

My opinion is simple .. Get your own VR photos. Stitch them in
Photoshop and try them in flash to provide some great effects.

Better you see the following site which is solely
made by flash itself.

Thank you

 Hi,I know what you want.I authored the QTVR before.
 I use camera taking 8 - 36 pictures 360 dgree around.
 Then use photoshop carefully merging them together.output a 360 dgree picture.
 The after is inputing the picture to "VR Worx",then proccess a few
simple step output the QTVR file.It also can inputing a few pictures
to VR worx and outputing QTVR.
  The VR worx software can authoring "object","pano" and "scene" QTVR.

  So making the professional QTVR authoring system ,you need the
software VR worx and a camera.
  When taking pictures ,keep the 8-36 pictures with a same height
level is most important.

   I hope this can help you.
