i have made my requirement done almost nearly here :

http://www.vox360.in/maps/pano/

i just wish to have my own preloader instaed overlapping that coloured bar while loading panorama into my flash movie.

can anyone guide me how can i replace that preloader available in pano2qtvr ?

i really think that allowing preloader bar change for graphics would add more beauty to the software.

please guide me.

Hi Mak,

To me the

preloader means the Splash page and progress loading bar. That is customizable. I think VOX splash page is already customized.

control bar is the < > + - bar. The control bars I have seen are created using Adobe Flash program. I think there already are several available. Most of them look like QTVR buttons. It appears that the RED bar you are using is custom.

Can you please be more specific as to which flash object element you are talking about?

Yes I saw this morning read your Yahoo chat note about this same topic.

to me the custom menas.

flexibility for using custom loader bar where we have text and expanding bar.

e.g
Loading 10%
and before that coloured bar we can set in pano2qtvr.

i want something different and want to use my own font instead of fixed.
also i want to have custom animation along with bar like flash preloaders have flexibility.

we are talking about flash output so my concern is to have custom preloading setup only.

rest is i have already done.
my controller is based on available on this forum and its custom.

hope this would be fine to describe my concern.

regards
MAK

I have answered that here: http://gardengnomesoftware.com/forum/vi ... php?p=2639

Just disable the default and use the onLoadProgress callback from the loader to paint your own progress bar.

I am more interested in knowing what settings they have used for flash renderings.

hi Cyberslam

i am not much expert but here is what i used

Pano2qtvr > Flash tab
General
Frame rate = 50s

Display
Quality = 10
Automatic descrease when moving = ticked
dynamic stage rendering quality - non ticked
scaling = with stage

Interaction
sensitivity = 3rd last marker setup
Movement = ticked (mass simulation)

Autorotation
Enabled = ticked
Delayed =5
Only if in focus = un ticked
Only after fully loaded = ticked

hope this helps.

I tried the above settings but its slow for me. Does it depends on the window size ? I am using 570 x 350.

btw, what about the speed in auto rotation ?
