We are planning to buy some object2vr licenses to make our 360 architectural tours
The idea would be to have clickable flats like in this sample:
I know how to create hotspot by hand and move it images to images, but its a very long and painful process when you have 80 or more apartments and a lot of columns/rows.
Do you know if there is a way to create area hotspots from animated images (colored areas like 3dsmax/vray render ids) and how can we do so?

Also one great thing to do this would be the support for vray cryptomattes as it works with object names:

I know in the past, I have edited the hotspot pngs after they were made. You might want to start there. I have never used another program to make the hotspots though.

Hello PhotoSpherix and thank you for your reply,
That sounds like a good idea, I was using polygon hotspots so it didn't generate an pngs. Now I know that using Area hotspots I have a png with a specific color for each appartement.
With after effects and the cryptomatte I was speaking about I can take the color of each hotspots and generate a png color for every column rows.
Sounds tedious but less thant drawing every images by hand! :)
