hey guys. so i took a crap load of pictures of a room and put them together in photoshop to make a 360 view type thing. i saved it as one layer. i know it would be easier to just pan around the room with a cam corder but i wanted to see if it could be done. well i did it and it looks pretty cool. i fixed any seems and color differences. vision lab normally opens any photos but this one just wont work. i get a string expected message. i was wondering if the file should be saved to a different format as i'm kinda clueless to these kinda things. i even put the picture in gimp which has a ton more format saving options. i checked out the help topics as well but i'm not understanding the different format types. probably just tired or i just don't comprehend it. i know the file must be huge so i was wondering if you guys have a clue as to what format i should save the file as or if vision lab will even be able to open it. i know it may seem pointless but the reason i did this was that i had some cool visuals in my brain that i would be able to do by having a 360 still image. thanks guys for any insight.

i just remembered that vision lab did open the file one time but it didn't retain much of the pictures detail. it became very distorted when i scaled the image up.

What format is the image in, and what is its size, in pixels?

Ah. Well, according to the tech specs, the acceptable formats are:

Still images: PSD, BMP, JPEG, PICT, PNG, SGI, TARGA, TIFF

I'd try converting it to a PSD or TIFF and see if that works.

That image is massively too large, as well. VisionLab only supports media up to 1920 x 1080.

yeah i found that out. vision lab would open the file but would crash after a while so i cropped a bit of the image size and it worked great. not exactly a r-d view but with a bit of practice i'm thinking some cool visuals can be made with this strange technique. thanks for the info though it was a big help.
