Opening aerial photo with hotspots

Post by PhilS » Fri Mar 16, 2018 4:25 pm

I an considering a project to cover an industrial complex commencing with an aerial photo (e.g. JPG). Is it possible to include hotspots so that the viewer can select from different nodes to open up panos of different parts of the complex?

I am sure possible so any guidance on how to set up would be appreciated.

Regards

Phil

Hi Phil,
Yes you just add hotspots using the hotspot viewer mode the add a point hotspot component.
Add Hotspot: https://ggnome.com/doc/pano2vr/beta/hotspots-point-add/
Components Tool box: https://ggnome.com/doc/pano2vr/beta/skin-components/

Hi Hopki
Many thanks for your prompt response. Can you please steer me on how to set up the aerial photo (jpg) as the default opening image onto which I can add the hotspots. I am familiar with having a pano as the starting node but if I import the jpg as a node through the Tour Browser it looks to treat it as a pano stretched out.
Many thanks
Phil

Hi Phil,
The aerial photo is a"flat" image.
Under the Properties panel select Type Flat.
Then set hotspots to the other panoramas.
You can right button click in the image in the tour browser and select as start pano.

Hi Hopki
Many thanks, so simple.
One follow up query. I have been looking at the video tutorial on creating a slideshow using the number variables. Is it possible to have several slideshows within a node, each accessed by selecting different hotspots?
Many thanks again.
Phil

Hi Phil,
Yes, as you add another galley component select to use different variables.
Then in the new gallery modify the folder name in the external loader, example for the first gallery you would have: gallery/img_01.jpg
Then in the second have: gallery01/img_01.jpg
Regards,
Hopki
