Re: website security and Pano2vr's html template

If the webhost's http>https conversion does not allow offsite scripts, why don't you put the easy rotator script file on your own server? It is probably a good idea to not allow off-site scripts anyhow.

website security and Pano2vr's html template

Has anyone here implemented a "Content Security Policy" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_Security_Policy on their panorama website? CSP does not like inline javascript or inline style (both are present in the Pano2vr html template) and I am curious how people have dealt with this.

Re: autorotation in Pano2VR v5.2.5

To answer my own question: It seems that the viewer init action has to be set in an empty container. I finally found that info with a forum search, but still have not found any information about where to put the viewer init action in the documentation.

autorotation in Pano2VR v5.2.5

It has been a while since I used autorotation on startup, so I am encountering this only now: Pan Speed 0.05°/Frame; Delay 5.0s; return to horizon 0.1; start after fully loaded. But when the vr tour starts, there is no autorotation. I then tried setting a viewer init - Start Autorotate 0.04/5/1 in t...

Re: setting viewing limits not working

I checked the image size and it still is 8000x4000. I also made a Flash version, just to see what would happen, and there the Max FoV 120 is displayed correctly. So it must be a limitation of html5 panos. The weirdness with setting Min FoV (where it jumps to Initial view FoV when pressing set) remai...

Re: setting viewing limits not working

That was fast :-) I do not think I have ever made anything but spherical panoramas. The problems with setting viewing parameters and min max zoom have plagued me for years, so I assume it is not a bug but user error. But what am I doing wrong..? And where is the mysterious initial FoV of 143.025 (in...

Re: setting viewing limits not working

In both Pano2VR v4 and v5, I keep having trouble setting setting Viewing parameters FoV and Min and Max zoom. When I set Viewing parameter to 120 degrees (as an experiment), when viewing the html5 version I get an FoV of 95 and it does not want to go wider than that. When I type in 20 Min zoom and c...

Re: problems with browser cache to check pano on server

That finally did it! After some more digging, I also found the Safari cache database file on Windows: C:\Users\[your name]\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\Safari\Cache.db I deleted that and now it finally shows the new version of the vr tour. Thanks! For Chrome I have not found a way yet to delete only...

Re: problems with browser cache to check pano on server

On Safari: Developer>Empty Caches. I have also tried to nuke all browser history data. On Chrome: Chrome Button>More Tools>Clear Browsing Data> Advanced> and then I choose Browsing History, Cookies and other site data, and Cached Images. For good measure I then also reboot the browser and still it w...

Re: problems with browser cache to check pano on server

Tony and Hopki, It works for you because it was not cached by your browser yet. But in my case, I have accessed my website many times while rebuilding it, and found out that it is practically impossible to empty the cache in such a case. I have followed all the instructions online to empty the cache...

problems with browser cache to check pano on server

I am getting rid of all references to Flash in my panos, so redoing all of them and uploading new versions to server. I have tried every trick I could find online to empty the cache of Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari (working on Windows 7 PC) I have tried nuking everything, including browser hist...

Re: import mixed formats in Pano2VRv5

Sorry for not being clearer. I am redoing the whole project, but using the same series of panos, some equirects, some cubefaces. When I do this in Pano2vr4 everything works as expected, but when I import cube faces using the "import cubefaces" interface to select the individual cubefaces that were e...

import mixed formats in Pano2VRv5

I have to reconstruct a tour of which some of the equirects are missing, but I do have the cube faces of the missing panos. Using V5.2.5 Pro, when I try to import the cube faces, it overwrites the last imported equirect. When I do this in Pno2VR v4, the previously imported image does NOT get overwri...

Re: embarrassed to ask

Hi Hopki,

I just tried that, and it does give the filepath for a skin file. When I do the same with Pano2VR (the program title) the filepath goes from MacBook Pro>Macintosh HD>Pano2VR Pro. So in that case the filepath skips the Application folder. Still - nice to learn a new trick.

Re: embarrassed to ask

Thanks Tony! I was not aware that there is more than one Library>Application Support and was looking in the wrong one. It appears that the search function excludes system files and that one has to specify this as a criterion as I just learned here: https://lifehacker.com/5711409/how-to-search-for-hi...
