Patch Properties

After adding a patch to the Viewer, the Properties panel will open with the following parameters:

Pan – This is the position of the image on the
horizontal axis.

Tilt – This is the position of the image on the vertical axis.

Roll – The rotation of the image on a central axis. To move the roll
position, adjust the value to the left or drag on the center arrow in the patch element.

FoV – The area the patch image covers. Scroll up and down to zoom in and out, creating a narrow or wide image.

Aspect Ratio – Enter the desired aspect ratio to change the dimensions of the patch. The default is 1:1 (1.00).

Apply after leveling – This setting is best used for Droplets and the Master Node.

When the down or up faces are not located at -90º or 90º after leveling (e.g. drone/helicopter shots, one-shot cameras not on a tripod, etc.), you can select this setting to make sure, for example, that your logo (patch) always stays on the down or up face even after leveling is applied.

Lock Position – Select to lock the patch’s position to avoid accidental movement.

Type – Choose the type of patch to be used:

  • Image
  • Mirrorball
  • Angular Map
  • Sphere
  • Blurred Square
  • Blurred Circle
  • Blurred Cover

The blurred patches are useful for the images being submitted to Google Street View; for blurring faces, license plates and covering the tripod.

The following parameters are for Image type only:

Format – Available when Type is set to Image. Choose the patch’s output format – PNG, TIFF, JPEG, PSD, HDR.
★ Tip: You can right-click the image format and choose Set As Default, to set the current format as the default for future use.

Image Quality – The JPEG quality of the image.

File – Name the patch here or open a new version of a patch.

Extract – Click to extract the patch. The patch will open in your default photo editor.

Open – Click to open the patch image in the default program you’ve set for image files.
