Our customers asked us to allow them to differentiate the look of GeoCV Viewer even further. What do you think about allowing for custom background image or 360 pano?

Here is a quick-and-dirty example for GeoCV 3D tour by Kevin Dole at @Home3D:
https://geocv.com/pradodelasflores-backpano


Would such a feature be beneficial to you?

What background images or panoramas would you add?

Anton - in line with customisation here is my request.

custom PREVIEW IMAGE (the one which pops till the model loads) does weigh in more.

The preview image is the first to appear, takes most real estate and stays long enough to have the branding impact. Even the URL's thumbnail is this image.

And if you deliver your GeoCV model using WP3D models, you can have a custom landing image now. Look at - Calabasas3D.com

Anton, I like the example custom background image you created for this test. Using the soft-focus aerial pano is interesting and emphasizes the presence of the “Outdoor” 3D view in the model.

This is the beauty of GeoCV, one can just do it with self hosting data set, matter of time GeoCV adds a button in editor. All done under one roof.

Anton,

Already your light background is more desirable to me than the black MP background. Having the ability to customize the background is another great step - e.g. one could use a client's logo, or other discernible branding photo.

What? You couldn’t find an aerial pano of Central Park? Really, great innovation once again.

I do have a challenge, though. In the background soft-focus aerial pano on the Prado de las Flores example, can you make it such that when the model is tilted to the horizontal limit, the background aerial pano tilts a bit more so that the horizon and some blue sky fill at least the top 1/3 of the frame? This will enhance the visual experience and dimensionality.

Yeah, this is like curing cancer and the patient asks “What else can you do?”

We're aware of the problem. We need to think more about how to solve it. Just tilting the pano won't work since it would look proper in one direction and look worse in the opposite one since the pano is fixed against the 3D model in the same coordinate system. Perhaps we could move (not rotate) the whole skybox of the pano down, so more of the sky is visible.

It's all math, of course. But I was thinking that you might tie the model and pano together such that they are both true when looking vertically straight down, but the aerial pano tilts about 20% faster so that when the model is at the stop point (about 20-25° downward from horizon-level) the aerial pano nearly reaches horizon-level (about 5° down from horizon-level).

Thank you for the idea! We've implemented it, and it actually works well in my opinion. Check this out:

@AntonYakubenko Do you think it is possible in the future to develop a tool to import a Matterport tour into the GeoCV platform? Technically speaking, I think it is doable. But I am curious what is your opinion about this topic.
Thank you!
