RTV Launches New Video Ripper – Drone Pilots and Video Guys Sure to Like

Virtual Tour Video

RTV proudly offers the most virtual tour features in the industry. We understand that in order to stay a leader we have to innovate on a regular basis!

As we head into our final month of 2017, we have some exciting news for you on the development front. The guys have completed some fantastic new updates to the RTV Video Ripper. Watch the full release video here – https://youtu.be/o3-4Fx_1mDo 

Those of you might have noticed that the videos created by the OLD video ripper had basic looking text on them and moved from scene to scene using a variety of random animated transitions. The output files were also only 720p. We are proud to say that the newly improved video ripper has quite a few improvements over the previous ripper.

Here is our short list:

• Now in 1080 HD – That’s right team! Our new video ripper pulls the images from your original HD uploaded images and uses your original files to create a high definition production.

• Includes Uploaded Videos – Are you an Aerial Drone Operator? Do you do video walk-throughs or AstroZooms in your RTV productions? If you use ANY video at all in your Real Tour Vision productions you will love the fact that our new video ripper also pulls your full motion video clips from your interactive virtual tour and adds them into your video rip. You can find the rip to video toggle now enabled on your video clips in the scene manager. By default, all videos within your virtual tour production will be included in your video output.

• Ken Burns Replicator – The new video ripper examines EACH of your carefully defined Ken Burns transitions from your interactive virtual tour and replicates that into the video rip. Say goodbye to random transitions. The new video ripper will do EXACTLY what you tell it to, right down to how long each slide is shown in the video.

• Spherical Optical Correction Added – The old video ripper would not optically correct spherical panoramas so they looked absolutely horrid when ripped into a video production. The new video ripper carefully optically corrects the viewing of a spherical panorama so the viewer can look at your spherical panoramas now without any distortion. With 3D spherical tours on the rise this was a MUST for us to include in our latest version!

• Enhanced Output Control – We have added several new buttons and toggles in the video promotion section of your tour manager to allow for finer control over video creation.

• Full Audio Support – The new video ripper now supports ALL audio formats including AudioPal narrations, custom tour narration, RTV Radio and custom uploaded .mp3 music tracks.
Here are a few videos that were just ripped:

Palaestrum – AudioPal, Drone Footage, Still Photos, Cylindrical Panoramas 

San Remo – AudioPal, Agent Video Introduction, Still Photos, Cylindrical Panoramas 

Bridge Street – Still Photos, Optically Corrected Spherical Panoramas 

Enjoy the new virtual tour software technology team and keep your eyes and ears peeled for the release of our all new HTML 5 Fusion Experience player that we will be showing you in the coming days! Thanks for your support.

Say Hello to Media Gallery & More Virtual Tour Software Updates!

virtual tour galleryIt’s a square; it’s four squares! It’s RTV’s new media gallery!  Let’s dive right in here and let you take it for a test drive! Check it out – http://fusion.realtourvision.com/tour.php?tourid=327951&html5=1#tourgallery  Here’s a short video that talks about our new Media Gallery as well as a few other important virtual tour software updates from Real Tour Vision – https://youtu.be/vmkje-gRSYY 
What makes the Media Gallery so unique is that we give it to you in your Deliverables section as its own delivery link.  If you have a customer that would prefer this style of a virtual tour over the others you can deliver it as a stand-alone product!

The Media Gallery has been fully integrated into our HTML 5 virtual tour player and shows up to the right of the player controls and is shaped like a Square made up of four square boxes. Just like a gallery!  You’ll notice the responsive nature of the Media Gallery right away and it performs exceptionally well on phones, devices, iPads and even looks great on a desktop computer.   We’ve taken the liberty here to add “View in Tour” links to the Media Gallery so users can be looking at a thumbnail of a panorama and instantly ‘JUMP’ into the interactive virtual tour by clicking the “View in Tour” button.   

The Media Gallery displays all forms of virtual tour media and even plays back third party embedded media such as Vimeo, YouTube, or Matterport productions.  It’s pretty slick! 

By default, we have turned your media gallery ON for all of your virtual tours and you can find the controls for this in the “Buttons” sections of your virtual tour manager.   If for some reason you would like it turned off you can do this by editing your buttons.  Enjoy the new technology and stay tuned for the launch of our new HTML 5 Fusion Experience player.  It’s almost done!!!

Sincerely,

Team RTV
