Re: VR and general web users

Not sure if this is a bug or just a design limitation, but I'm finding that specifying the pan, tilt, and fov using direct node access doesn't seem to work if the tour has only one node. That can be a problem when trying to use text hot-links to reposition a single node "tour" to various points of i...

Re: VR and general web users

That would be a nice enhancement for a future version of Pano2VR, namely providing a transition/pan effect when using direct node access to reposition the view within the current panorama. Maybe allow specifying both "from" and "to" values for the pan, tilt, and fov numbers, along with a transition ...

Re: VR and general web users

SRibas: While I suspect the JavaScript API will give you the best overall control of your panoramas, there is another approach for having text-based hot links reposition a panorama’s point of view. A company called Esri has a set of tools that can be used to produce what they call “Story Maps”, whic...

Re: VR and general web users

If you aren't already familiar with it, this link on "direct node access" describes how to access an individual tour node using an external hyperlink: https://ggnome.com/doc/pano2vr/beta/dna/ Full control over the pan, tilt, fov, and projection is supported. This should let you link directly to any ...

Re: WebVR

No problem. I have been enjoying the beta tremendously. It's a real kick being able to view pano2vr tours on the Rift now. You and your team do great work!

Re: WebVR

Can you say if support for URL-based hotspots in VR mode is on the radar? As far as I can tell, the current beta only supports VR hotspots that go to nodes within the current tour. I'm hoping that the final release will allow access to multiple tours (through their URLs) without leaving VR mode. Tha...

Re: VR button not listed above HTML in my output panel

I thnk you need to switch to the 6.1 beta release to get WebVR support.

Re: Tour of an Academy in Germany

Edgar: Did you see the WebVR information in the 6.1 Beta announcement? https://ggnome.com/blog/pano2vr-603-and-61-beta-released It mentions specific skins that include and support the "Enter VR" button. There is also a WebVR tutorial video here: https://ggnome.com/blog/pano2vr-604-and-61-beta-2-rele...

Re: "Architecture for people with disabilities" (Manual)

This is an interesting presentation that conveys a wealth of information to the viewer. Very nicely done! I hope you will consider doing an English language version at some point. There appeared to be a problem with one of the hot links though. In the initial view in the main hall, there is a long c...

Re: Multispeciality Hospitals Virtual Reality India

Good tour that provides a lot of information about the facility. I found it easy to get lost in all the corridors though. I think adding a floor plan (as supported in version 6) would make it much easier to navigate. Also, I saw one white board that seemed to list the names of a couple of patients. ...

Ferguson Fire Maps in Object2VR

Here’s something that may be a little different use of Object2VR, namely animating a sequence of maps to show the progression of the recent Ferguson fire near Yosemite National Park: https://lookabout.net/fire/ferguson/progression It will cycle through automatically unless you turn that off with the...

Re: Preferred panoramic equipment

I’m afraid my approach to shooting panos is not very well suited to “action” situations but I do like the results I get in calmer environments. I use an Olympus Pen-F camera, a 12mm f2 M.Zuiko lens (24 mm equivalent), a Nodal Ninja 3 with a Mk II rotator, and a Gitzo GT0531 tripod. The whole rig, in...

Re: Some panorama collections

Over the last year I have been plugging away adding content to my presentation on my home town, Redlands, California: http://lookabout.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapTour/?appid=aad9e180821347c99ea5fa6f85c3bf03 I think it has finally become a reasonable example of what can be done with Pano2VR Pro and Esri...
