Pano in Object

Post by JSchroeder » Thu Mar 26, 2015 1:57 pm

Hi everybody,
I am new to Object- and Pano2VR and maybe somebody can help me out.

I have created a Pano of the inside of a car and a 360° of the car outside. No I am trying to link them.

The idea is, to look at the car outside from all angles first, then move to the inside pano by clicking on a hotspot.
My problem is, the Pano will always be opened full screen and very pixelated.
Is there a step by step tutorial on how to do this, or does someone know which of the setting I am doing wrong.

Thanks for your help,
Jürgen

Hi Jürgen,
The reason for this is your trying to open two different technologies in the same player, panoramas use 3D, objects don't.
For Flash you would use the hotspot to open an external loader and then point to the panoramas SWF file.

HTML5 Panoramas need CSS3D or WebGL, Object2VR does not.
The way to do this is get the hotspot to open a text box. The text box can then contain an iframe to display the panorama.
Here is a post on how to do this with two Object projects, just use the panorama.

Regards,
Hopki

Hopki,
I am not getting it right.
I always get the error message it failed to load "panorama xml"
Then it show the frame as below. So it seem, the skin gets loaded (see the radar beam), but nothing else happens.

Any suggestion?
I would appreciate your help.

Hi Jürgen,
When you downloaded the oio project this worked for you.
If so look at the file path, just make sure yours are the same, apart from file names.

Hopki

Hi Hopki,
Thanks for your help.
I re-arranged all the mess of files I created and now it works.

I just can't get the size of the window right. (see below)

All (Pano Projekt and Object Project) window sizes are 640 x 460. But it does not seem to position itself correctly. The size of the loader and the backgorund does not make a difference.

What do I have to change?

I appreciate your help,
Jürgen

Make sure your using fullsceen for the panoramas HTML page.
Then in the iFrame code set your size, then the text box in Object2VR has to be the same size.
That should do it.

Hopki

Hi Hopki,
it did not make a differnce.

It seems as though the Pano Project has a white frame around the window.The window size is exactly matching the 640 X 480. But then there are those scroll bars added as you see in the picture above.

Do you want me to upload both projects into my dropbox and send you the link?

Thanks again for your help,
Jürgen

I know I pulled my hair out on this issue at one point. You might want to look into the css style for an iframe on the parent page and then look into the page border on the page that is shown in the iframe.

I am not getting it done. Does anyone have a sample project where one can see all the settings (parent and child)?

Thanks for your help,
Jürgen

Hi Jürgen,
Been out of the loop for a while, I take it things are still not right.
I tried the link you PM to me but comes up 404.

Please find attached an HTML5 object with flash fullback with popup panorama.
There are a few things to lookout for,

For Flash:
Make the window size the same as the external loader and set Scaling to none.
For a multi node popup panoramic tour you have to produce two node one's. This is because the file path for the hotspot becomes different once you have visited node two.
So the first nodes hotspot points to pano/pano_02.swf.

pano_01_start.swf (the opining pano) its hotspot points to: pano/pano_02.swf
pano_01.swf, its hotspots points to: pano_02.swf
So the hotspot from node two to node one needs to point to pano_01.swf
Unloading a SWF only works when you hide the external loader, it is not enough to hide its parent element.
This means when opening you need to show the external loader as well as the parent and when closing you need to hide it.
This becomes important if there is sound.
If you only have a single node then there is no need to produce two node one's.

For HTML5:
Like flash you need to load and unload the panorama. In this case in a text box and using an iframe.
So to open you need to set the text to the text box and when closing set the text again but this time leave blank.
Hope this answers all your questions.
Hopki
