I was trying to create some text labels that shift some depending on the current tilt/pan with lines that point to a fixed spot on the pano. I realized I couldn't because all the modifier sources are set to the pano's orientation, not an object's, so I'd like to suggest that as a feature for the future. Thanks!

Hi JPasnikowski,
You can position the text box using the logic block as it has Pan/Tilt/FoV settings.

I don't think I'm being very clear... let me try using an example:

Say I want boxes whose widths are dependent on the pan so that the boxes are at maximum width when in front of the viewer.

As it is now, I would have to create a different hotspot in the skin for each box in the pano because each one will need a different offset.

What would be better is to have an option where the hotspot location is used as the starting point of 0 degrees, so that no offset would be necessary, so only one hotspot template would have to be created.

Does that clear up my meaning?

Thanks!
