The standard deliverables once a job is completed:
There are three different sets of files that are included as part of a standard job. The full interactive 360’s (for desktop, laptop, mobile, tablets), Equirectangular (EQ) full size JPG’s and cube faces. EQ files are the base source file from the stitching process.
Cube faces are produced from the EQ and are used to display the interactive 360. Image archiving for 6 months. Clients receive 1 month notification before taking files off-line in case clients want to join the archival retention program.
By default you have contracted to have the interactive 360’s and EQ files in highest quality jpeg format sent to up to 4 contacts of your choosing once the job and post work is completed.
All the images assets will be electronically delivered via WeTransfer.com or uploaded to a single FTP server provided by you.
The size of EQ files average in size 24000 x 12000 pixels for daytime panos, 32000 x 8000 for dusk panos which are produced with less vertical coverage than daytime. Larger files can be created if needed and known in advance. Cube faces average about 7000 pixels square. Many clients use cube faces for print use. The largest prints from these at 300 PPi would be about 26 inches square.
We need to understand the full intended use of images SkyPan will produce for you. If you plan to use any images for print we need to know the size, type of print media and viewing distance. Any print needs beyond 48 inches long will require Gigapan coverage, which is a custom service described in our FAQ section. If you plan to use a large video wall we need to know the size and number of displays and pixel dimensions.
Supported Platforms for interactive 360:
By default we deliver all components necessary to run on both Apple & Windows based computers, tablets & smart phones.
Viewing options for interactive 360:
By default a top and bottom limit is placed on the 360 - we limit the ability to look straight down or up for both daytime and dusk panos. If you need to be able to look straight down we need to know that before the shoot occurs. Additional limits can be added based on floor plans or client provided details. The opening view of the interactive 360 can also be set along with how much it is possible to zoom in and out. The service of setting view limits is NOT included in a standard cost estimate.
See example. Setting view limits are $60/each.
Extracting stills from 360 for print use:
The EQ files or cube faces can be used as is or we can extract perspective corrected or normal stills. This service is NOT included in a standard cost estimate. Perspective corrected flatfield still extractions are $75/each jpg
