Re: why does skin increase individual content file size?

Hi Stu Good work, I must admit any large files I always load externally, as you say, cuts down load times. Just an observation, the thumbnails and hotspots in the floor plan don’t match. The tour starts off with the Nave Sanctuary, in the floor plan, the left-hand hotspot. The next hotspot in is th...

Re: why does skin increase individual content file size?

Here's the same skin, but with the images externally loaded:

http://www.360imagery.co.uk/VT/lichfiel ... ld-04.html

no visual difference, but the skin is now 1.6mb, not 2.6mb with the PNG images embedded. The output SWF's are a healthier 1.7mb, as opposed to 3mb before.

Re: why does skin increase individual content file size?

Hi Stu As a quick fix, why not have the 1 and 20 kB images externally loaded :?: The skin would be tiny and if you set the images to show when loaded there would be no delay :wink: Just means more files in the project folder :roll: , and when Thomas does sort it out you can then incorporate the ima...

Re: why does skin increase individual content file size?

Currently the images are always stored as PNG files within the skin and the outputted SWF because of an early design decision I made for the skin editor. I didn't expected to get that far with it but now this limits the usage. One of the next major versions (I hope 2.3) will have the option to incl...

Re: why does skin increase individual content file size?

Hi Stu just had a look at the problem :roll: As far as file size change goes, I must put my hand up and say I have no idea. Looking at it, all images are being converted to png format in the skin, so that’s going to bump up file size, but then adding a png does the same thing, I am wondering if Ski...

I do use a reload action, but the text doesn't always appear, just the loading bar - any suggestions?

Re: another skin design...

Hi Stu Also you could put a container around all the thumbnails with the same scaling action as in the thumbs. This would stop the flicker affect when your mouse is in between the thumb images. :wink: As a thought Hopki :) Martin The 3 images are all in a container that controls the scaling...... Stu

Re: latest skin effort.....

Hi Stu As always the pictures are spot on. :) Did you use your Canon 450 for the pictures :?: If so what settings did you use :?: I did notice when in full screen, clicking a thumbnail image sent me back to normal view, so looks as if youo are using a "Go To Url" action. If you used a “Open next Pa...

why does skin increase individual content file size?

hi all, look at this example: http://www.360imagery.co.uk/VT/clowes/12harleystreet/start.html The above example includes 7 thumbnails, each optimised in Ps to 1kb jpegs, and 7 images, each optimised to 20kb jpegs, all to keep file size down. When I zip, and extract, the contents of the skin, the 20k...
