P2VR5: Transition within variable states not always working

Post by dennisvanduijn » Fri Sep 04, 2015 11:07 pm

Hi all,

I wonder if you experience the same problem with transitions using variables as I do. It is rather easy to make an image smoothly moving or fading as a result of a variable value change, but ONLY when the image is anchored to te upper left side of the screen. If the anchor is set to one of the eight other positions, the set transition somehow is not active anymore. For example, when I tell an upper left anchored image to move from position A to B when variable X is set from 0 to 1, then the image smoothly shifts between postions. But as soon as the anchor is changed to any other setting, the image simply teleports from A to B. Strange behavior!

Any thoughts?

I give a little bump to this topic, because I had no reaction yet. P2VRb3a did not offer a solution.

Hi Dennis,
I seem to remember this is already in our bug tracker for V5 beta.
I will check tomorrow when I'm back in the office.
Regards,
Hopki

Hi Dennis,
This is a known issue and talking with the dev's they say this will look into this at a later stage, for now they are working to get version 5 out of beta.
There is a note in the bug tracker so it will not get forgotten.
Regards,
Hopki

I am having this EXACT same issue. I see that this post is almost 3 years old. Has this not been resolved? I am using the Pano2VR 6 beta and the problem seems to still exists. Did this issue get put on the back burner or maybe forgotten about?

It's not a debilitating issue; however it definitely makes it impossible to create any fancy type of interactive tour player that rely's on user input such as mouse over or mouse click which in turn executes some sort of image tweening (fly in fly out) x y coordinates or image rescaling within the skin.

Is there anything us users can do on this end to apply a patch or work around? I absolutely love adding this type of functionality to my tours.


Still, even with this overlooked or forgotten bug..... Pano2VR is a fantastic product :D

Any workable solution will surely add value to my customer's tours! When can it be approximately expected?

Hi,
Have you guys tested Pano2VR 6beta 5?

But remember if you have a transition in one attribute you mast have transitions in all attributes that have active logic blocks.
If you don't want a transition just set the time to 0.

Please see the attached project.
The text box Text 1 toggles a true false variable.

Rectangle 1 has a position logic block with Transition enabled and set to 1 second.
It also has a logic block for the background colour, this also have a Transition enabled but 0 seconds, so not showing a fad.

Rectangle 2 also has a position logic block with Transition enabled and set to 1 second.
It also has a logic block for the background colour, but no transition.

In the output you will see that rectangle 1 slides side to side while rectangle 2 does not even though it has a transition.
This is because the colour logic block has no transition.

Regards,
Hopki

Hi Hopki,

I seems that the current version of Pano2VR6 does not have the issue anymore. I used you little project to test and placed and anchored the shifting rectangle to upper right. Clicking the Change Variable button nicely makes this rectangle shift.

Thanks!
