Default How do you video record an entire Virtual Tour?

My client want to see Video movies.
I tell him it takes time to produce a quality motion video. I think we can build a Virtual tour with FPP engine, and then simply record the tour using camcast/screenflow etc..
How do you guarante smooth transition/rotation, high resolution etc.. ?

I want to video record this visit, together opening/zooming into the floorplan before entering each room

The final experience should do the trick: replacing motion video, at a fraction of the cost

Thanks for these links, but i need to convert an entire virtual tour of several rooms each leading onto a new one . I have a floorplan etc... that i was to pull in and out during the recording.
For a single QTVR panorama, the links is great, but what about Flash FPP?

It is not possible to render a whole "interactive" tour as video. The only way wld be to use a screen capture app and (Fraps, Camtasia or whatever) capture the screen while navigation through the tour. The quality wld not be very impressive at the end.

FPP is for making tours, you want to make a video. You can make a video look like a tour using either of the programmes that I have suggested.

Yes, you could use some think like Camtasia, but if it worked any good I would have suggested it at the start.
You'd be better off not thinking of it as recording a tour, but think of it as making a movie that looks like your tour.

After Effects works just the same as most adobe products, you add layers(images) to a stage. the images can move, or be stationary. You can make images glow, fade, slide in and out of view. or make them do just about anything.

You can do it whatever way you find easiest, But trust me, if you want to impress your client with a professional looking video in High Definition, use After Effects with the Trapcode Horizon plug-in

you might like to look at this post, the mov file is about 70mb. so you might want to download it and then watch it.

He used Snap Z pro for the MAC

You could make it LOOK exactly the same using After Effect,
It would just be a lot smoother, sharper and in a HD video format.

So if U can produce video for each panorama, there should be no problem to get it together then into one video file.

Harry, great links, thanks!

Yes, When using Pano2Movie, I make a movie for each pano image, then add them together, and add overlays in my movie software.
But, if I am using After Effects, I would make it as one long movie with all images and overlays. This is quicker than doing it one at a time with P2M.

Default Error: cannot be imported because there is no timeline in the file

Hi Harry,

I have at least one if not two projects where it would be great to have high-definition video created from QTVR files. Could you possibly help with advice on how to bring in the QTVR files to After Effects step by step? My colleague experienced with After Effects tried importing my QTVR file using the Trapcode Horizon plugin but so far it comes up with an error message stating 'it cannot be imported because there is no timeline in the file '.

No doubt it is something simple we have missed?

Thanks

David

Hi!
I used once Moyea SWF to Video software: http://www.swfkits.com/
You can run any swf file, operate it and then it records whatever you do, or it can be automatically programed.
I personally think it loses all the purpose of a virtual tour, but some of my clients want it like this as well.

Hope it helps you
