It's been mentioned already, but a Tokina and a steadicam is key. I actually own a business revolving around video tours of homes. I was recently flown out to Mexico to shoot a tour of a medical facility. Depending where you live, it can be GREAT business.

These are not your fathers panoramas.
Most of the panorama work I do is for larger entities.
Most real estate agents are cheap and most of them
take their own photos.
But one of my biggest clients now prefer these types of shows.

For HDR, I will try to see if I can get HDR Efex Pro 2.
Then to stitch the HDR images, I will should use PT Gui.
I don't need to extract the bottom of the panorama. I wont shoot vertically down. only up. So there will be a small spot you wont see. Which is fine.
So, after I stitch the photos using PT Gui, I need to create a video?
To create the web tour, I should use one of these?:
-Flash Panorama Player
-krpano Panorama Viewer
Looking at the descriptions of them, they all seem to do the same thing. Make a video of the panorama picture.
Which would be the best to use then?
So, after i created the video (probably a flash?), now how do I put it up on the website as a virtual tour?

You can create cube faces in PT Gui go to TOOLS/Convert to QTVR /Cubic
You can only create a one pano web page using PT Gui using TOOLS/Publish to Website - but their method is heavy on memory usage
and only having the ability to show one pano - is pretty much useless.
Here is a comparision -
This is one pano using PT Gui - Publish to Website
Here I am using Flash Panorama Player and XML programming.
I am working on an iPad/IPhone version of this tour now.

The jump cuts to fast forward movement was okay at times, but sometimes it confused me.
Is that how all walk through videos would be done?
I have not done the virtual tour for the realtor. Because of last minute planning, he nor I wanted to go with this. Especially since it would be super rushed and my first time at it. Id rather practice on my own house, get it right, then start doing them.
But, Id rather do a walk through, IF it can be done very well.
