Re: Handle Video Playback events

It depends on frame accurate you need to be. mp4 files are generally not really good about being frame accurate for seeking. You'll need to render the mp4 with a keyframe distance of 1 to get close. The issue now is how to actually do that in Pano. I don't think there's a seek method for 360 videos,...

Re: How do I specifically detect Apple devices?

You might be able to have a browser detection scheme put into a text field with javascript, then have the that script change a variable to a particular value that can trigger the correct visibility of the elements. I do this kind of thing in my html template, changing the variable just after the pan...

Re: v6.1.7 continually requiring licence key

MacOS or Windows? Are you logged in as an administrator, or running the program as an admin (Windows)? I've had similar issues with other software, and it was usually a user permissions issue preventing the software from writing the licence file to the correct place in the appdata folder or other pl...

Re: A way to automate updating hundreds of Pano2VR scenes?

I may be wrong, but I believe you can simply use the new skin.js file (and probably any linked images/media/webvr folders) to the older pano.xml. In that way, it would be a matter of scripting the copying of files rather thank trying to script Pano2VR. It's worth a test anyway.

Re: Pinning an alpha channel - my technique

For those doing the pinned video to match background, there's a quirky thing with more recent versions of Chrome and Safari on MacOS (video is brighter than the background panoramic) - the way I've solved this (not sure how perfect it will be in the field, but it works on the machines I've tested) -...

Pinning an alpha channel - my technique

Well, I don't think it's possible to have alpha channels directly in PANO2VR, but I use this technique with Adobe After Effects to quickly create the pinned videos that match up nicely. Let me know if this helps anyone, or if there is a better way to accomplish this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: 360 videos cannot be played.

Judging by your sample URL, it appears the *.mp4 file cannot be found. It is looking for: https://yukibancho.japaho.com/vr/output-2/videos/vr-movie-%E7%B7%A8%E9%9B%86_s-1.mp4 But that generates a 404 error (not found). It could very well be possible the filename makes it unhappy - so my first test w...

Re: parallax transitions

I haven't tried it - but it seems like you could have a hotspot go to a node that serves as a video transition, then on the media ended go to the next node. If you try it, let us know if it's seamless - since that would likely be my first question. Obviously, you'll need to adjust node transitions a...

Re: Analytics for Panoramas

Can't speak for the heatmap, but to connect google analytics the process I use is: 1. Create a variable 2. For each action I want to record, I set the variable value for the hotspot in the skin actions 3. Create a hidden text element in the skin which listens for variable change as the source, then ...
