i'm trying to create hotspots, i'm exporting to flash.

the problem is if i choose the panorama type as cylindrical, when i play the swf movie, there is a hand cursor on all the movie and there is no hotspots, while in quicktime it works perfectly.

when i choose panorama type as Equirectangular, the hotspots are working (also in flash swf) but the image is distorted... i need the cylindrical pormat.

what can the problem be ? why the panorama type is effecting the hotspots?
maybe some software is missing?

Hotspot do not work in Flash 8 with cylindrical panoramas but you can convert the cylindrical projection to equirectanguar and used them there.
Shameless plug: Hotspots on cylindrical panoramas work with Flash 9 in Pano2VR, so maybe give it also a try.
