Yes, that worked! "Patience is a virtue", ha.

The odd thing is that Firefox's little 'file loading' indicator reports almost
instantly that the file *has* completely loaded-- but the screen stays white for
a couple of minutes until the 360-image appears. That's an *extremely* long time
for Firefox to be processing or assembling(?) the visual result...if that is
what is  happening...especially in my super-fast Win 10 machine. Very strange!

Anyway, the result looks great; thanks for sharing.

Maybe the delay depends on the browser used. Edge opend the link within 
the part of a second (but not immediately). Maybe Chrome shows a 
similiar behaviour since it is related to Edge. To model historic 
drawings is an interesting task and you did a nice job here. I ever 
thought to model an old painting like the Capriccio project years ago. 
But my interest is more on old roman frescos or on images by my favorite 
late medieval painter, Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

Best regards,
Michael

Just guessing, but maybe it is not the machine which delays the visual 
result, but simply the download/communication speed of your modem. In 
this country (NL), you buy the upload/download speed package that you 
think you may need, from the provider (faster = more money). 
Additionally, the medium through which the info travels (here it is 
mostly cable; before it was dsl; and now we are gradually switching to 
fibreglass country-wide). Probably identical on your side of the 
'sundering seas'...

Mine is quite fast, usually; it's high-speed 'broadband' through fibre-optic
cable. I guess the OP's file must be *really* big!

I also tried Microsoft's Edge browser: same white-screen delay. But at least it
indicates that the file *is* still loading, unlike Firefox.

BTW, I probably exaggerated the time delay; it's actually only about 45 sec
until the 360-image appears.

I have DSL, and using brave browser on my Alienware 17 R3 (*)
it loads and renders very quickly, with only a very slight delay.

I guess mine is similar, and probably even faster::
Intel Core i7-10700 CPU at 2.90GHZ (8 cores/16 threads)
16 GB ram

Hmm, this gets "curious-er and curious-er".

Methinks there are data-transmission bottlenecks somewhere, affecting some of us
but not all. That stuff is black magic to me.
