newbie question about creating skin

Post by sheelal » Tue Feb 11, 2020 8:48 am

Hello,

I make a lot of photosphere and virtual tours. Until now, I'm using panotour pro. I'm interested to switch to pano2VR. All looks easy except for the skin. I would like to keep more or less the same look as for panotour pro. For usual buttons (move, zoom, etc.), I think I can handle it. But when it comes to compass and thumbnail stack, it becomes a bit more complicated.
So is it complicated to make such skin? How much time do you think I need (more or less)? Can I do both in Object2VR or do I need to modify manually some other files?

PS: I can only respond on Monday/Tuesday

HI,
The compass should not be an issue, just make sure North is set in all panoramas.
Then in the element that needs to rotate you set a Modifier, Rotate, Pan North.

Do you have a link with an example of the menu you would like?

Hi Hopki, Thank you for your answer and your solution for the compass.

Here is an Example. The menu is at the bottom left. The 3 features I'd like are the following: Drop-down menu / There should be a thumbnail of the photosphere / when we move the mouse over the thumbnail, the name of the photosphere should appear.

Hi,
This menu can be built without much fuss in Pano2VR but would need to be built for each project.
Ideally, you want a menu you can just add to the skin and it configures itself.
Maybe look at one of the menus that come with Pano2VR in the Components Toolbox.
I have 1000 and 1 things to do right now but shout if you need help with the menu, it would not take much to build.
Regards,
Hopki
