Re: quality loss equi to cube and back

Another way to make edits in the image at poles is to use the numeric transform in PTGui to position the nadir in the middle of the horizon. For those who'd like to know: this is done by manually ' pitch ing' the equirect + or - 90 degrees in the 'Image Parameters' tab. A disadvantage of this metho...

Re: Flash and Mobile, Job's Letter

Add H.264 to Pano2VR??? Flash already supports it since version 9.something, but it's for compressing/decompressing video and has nothing to do with interactive panoramas. HTML5 is not a fixed standard yet and it won't be for quite some time too. My guess is this iPodpad 'thing' will blow over once ...

Re: Object2VR API

Considering how very different the images are structured in an object movie when compared to a cubical VR, I very much doubt it.
Other than Thomas telling us, only trying it will help getting an answer.

Re: quality loss equi to cube and back

You can keep the inevitable (!) re-mapping damage to a minimum by doing the following: 1. make your initial equirect in PTGui. 2. convert it to cubefaces, but also keep the original equirect. 3. do your editing on the cubefaces. 4. reconvert them back to a new equirect, making sure its dimensions ar...

Re: Object2VR API

What about these then? Changing the view <panoclip>.pano.getPan(); // returns the current pan angle <panoclip>.pano.setPan(angle_in_degrees:Number); // sets the current pan angle <panoclip>.pano.changePan(offset_in_degrees:Number); // change the current pan angle <panoclip>.pano.getFov(); // sets th...

Re: map + hotspots + proxy issues

Could it be that you are confusing field of view with pan angle ? Pan angle is the view direction, field of view (fov) could be described as the 'zoom factor' (a small value for fov = 'zoomed in', a large value for fov = 'zoomed out'). These are the skin placeholders that could help you: $ap = curre...

Re: FullScreen without any button, Yes We Can!...but

Hi MrT,

What I would do is to rewrite and place all those bits of code in one single layer of one single frame (if possible).
Try to avoid using the time line if you can do it all in ActionScript.

Cheers!

Re: removing object movie

Does vr.cleanup(); removeChild(loader); work for you? Did you actually check? For me (and I think a lot of others) it doesn't, so that would be interesting. I had to add code to erase the bitmap data from memory of all six cube faces individually to have some effect. Perhaps something similar can be...

Re: TEMP directory 'wildcard' for hotspot URL

I've already looked at that slideshow, but it only demonstrates basic Zinc functionality regarding unpacking enclosed image files into a Temp directory. As such it is relevant in relation to what you need for your project, but not necessary or useful in any way. I haven't tested what I have now on a...

TEMP directory 'wildcard' for hotspot URL

Hi all, I need to make hotspots that point to the user's active TEMP directory, but that location is different for every user. Is there anyone who can tell me how to use the system location of the TEMP directory as a hotspot URL? I tried %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp but that doesn't work. Any s...

Re: Zinc and pano2vr

Great success so far! First I made two interlinking Pano2VR Flash panos with hotspot location URL's in my local TEMP directory. Then I built a Flash preloader that loads one of those panoramas from that local TEMP directory, Into the AS3 code of that preloader I also included ZINC code to unpack/ext...

Re: Zinc and pano2vr

Just did some initial tests with a demoversion of ZINC, and at least the basics work, which is nice. Pano2VR panos as such work with ZINC, and using local addresses the hotspots work as well. So switching from pano to pano works fine (so far). Then I tried to use a preloader which loads two local pa...

Re: Fullscreen help.

Or In a few more words: replace the &rdquo; character sequences by single " signs,
so it reads:

<param name="AllowFullScreen" value="true"/>
.....
.....
..... AllowFullScreen="true"></embed>

Re: Zinc and pano2vr

Maybe I can adapt one of the preloaders I already made for Pano2VR .swf's to work with Zinc. I need to find time for that, so I cannot promise you anything at this stage. And I'll have to be able to use a demo version of Zink, I am not going to buy it just to try it. Zink appears to be a useful (but...

Re: Zinc and pano2vr

I just had a first quick glance at Zinc, and it looks like you need a fullblown Flash development tool (like Adobe Flash Professional) to first build a .swf file that contains not only your own content, but also special 'Zinc' code. Only then can Zinc turn that .swf into an autonomous executable app...
