    Hello all,

    I am trying to use PanoTools PTViewer java applet to display a virtual
    tour of a room. I can get the applet to function correctly, but it
    looks distorted. The image is formatted to be used in virtual tours,
    but I don't have any information about how the image was taken.

    I have read the documentation at and I tried
    modifying the fov parameters on the applet but it hasn't helped. Can
    anyone help me to get the room looking right?

    The other thing I want to do is make it so the user doesn't have to
    scroll up or down when the applet is loaded.

    page with applet on it:

    Thanks in advance for any help,

  2. Your FOV=80 is pretty wide-angle, that will lead to "unnaturally" curved
    lines. How does it look with say 50, and the min/max values set to maybe

    I had the fov commented out, so I think it was using defaults. I
    tried out your parameters and it doesn't look much better.

    I created another tour w/ a shot that has a lake in it, the distortion
    is really bad in this one. I figure there has to be some way to
    correct this, I just can't figure it out.

    the original:

    adjusted with the parameters you suggested:
