Default Zoom/fov relation


Does anyone know if there is an equation to convert fov value to zoom?

The zoom parameter is not a fixed FOV value. The vertical FOV is adjusted relative to the proportions of the displayed panorama,

This is one of the most valuable parameters FPP has in my opinion as it prevents panoramas from becoming distorted when the page is resized.
You can publish a pano which looks good in a 4/1 proportion and when you click fullscreen it automatically adjusts to the screen depending on its proportions.

If you want a fixed vertical or horizontal FOV you can use hfov or vfov.
It is all in your tutorial.
