I have thought about this but im not sure if it can be done in Pano2vr, and being quite the noob with it, I thought it best to query the pro's before I invest pointless time.

I would like to have a loading indicator that is somehow radial. Similar to a speedometer. Let me try to explain.
I think I can make a graphic with a radial "reveal" in it to show the loading bar behind it.
and then place the loading bar behind the graphic. But that would still leave the loading bar moving in a linear fashion. I would like it if I could get the loading bar to follow the radius of the reveal. Does that make any sense? If not I can attempt to work up something to more clearly define what I mean
thanks in advance

Maybe someone else can check this, I'm not sure if i'm using it correctly.
I'm trying to rotate a line(thin rectangle) during loading using a modifier.
But, no matter how I set things I can't get it to work.
I asked my original question and set to perhaps solving it by trial and error. Then I thought I had come up with a much simpler, but satisfactory answer and now i'm stuck trying to achieve the effect.
Has anyone else used an element that rotates during loading?
I think that is a better question for me to ask.
thanks
