To publish a Street View tour with TrailBlazer you will need a GoPro Fusion 360 camera.
Once you have your GoPro 360 camera, you will need to mount it to the top of a vehicle or a helmet (for instance, if you're biking) to capture the footage with GPS on roads or trails.
Once you are done shooting, you will need to unload the footage to your computer to process in GoPro Fusion Studio V1.3 or higher. (link to section)
Once you have processed stitched footage, you can load that into TrailBlazer which will optimize and publish to Google Street View. (link to section)
Is the GoPro Max compatible with TrailBlazer or not? We purchased one based on this page which lists it as Street View Ready via the TrailBlazer software.
We have run into problems every step of the way with the TrailBlazer software, Fusion Studio software, and the Street View app itself. We've exhausted the product documentation and help forums. We are awaiting a response from Google. GoPro's Contact Us page is broken, leaving us unable to reach them.
All that to say I'm really hoping you can help, we need to upload a virtual tour of a municipal facility and needed it done yesterday.
Hello! We bought Go Pro Max and we also can’t figure it out, did it work out for you? can you help me?
We only need to upload one tour per month, so we used the free version of the Google Publisher software from Panoskin's home page.
The only assistance we've gotten is from a user on the GoPro community. Here's a link to that conversation. Our first post is message #13 in the thread. Message #18, 19 and 21 were informative.
We never received a response from Panoskin. Still unable to contact GoPro. The person at Google essentially told us to submit a feedback report from the Street View help forum (the "contact" link he gave me simply took me to the forum home page).
We also experimented with Google's Tour Creator. It is more time intensive and is more like a slideshow than a walkthrough, but it could have been a solution for us as well.
I am unable to connect my google account in TrailBlazer. In the dialog box, I cannot login with my google account at all.
While the trailblazer app is still not working, google just launched streetviewstudio.maps.google.com
I uploaded my 360 video from my gopro and after 2 days is has been fully processed by google, without having to use trailblazer at all :-)
