Toggle Animation / Rotation

Post by MPW » Sat Aug 05, 2017 8:14 pm

Hi there,
while I prefer to use a normal rotation I also want to have the possibility to toggle it to an animation.
With a mouseclick I managed to start the animation from normal rotation. However this animation reverts to normal rotation after auto-changing to the next pano. Here I have to activate animation again. On the other side I can´t revert from a started animation to normal rotation by mouseclick "start rotation". The animation is just going on. :?:
Can you help me? Thanks..

Hi,
The settings are auto rotate and then a check box to use animation for auto rotate.
With the box unchecked, then in the skin you have a Start Auto Rotate or Start Animation actions.

The Start Animation is separate from Auto Rotate and is a one time click.
In other words if you click to start animation it will run until its stopped or the pano has a mouse click or it changes to the next node.
After this it reverts back to the Auto Rotate.

So you have to choose to have Auto Rotate with a one time Animation, or Animation all the time.
I will add a feature request for this and see what the developers think.
Regards,
Hopki

Thank you.
I will keep on playing with this.

Animation seems quite interesting for me for presentations.
But it needs to possibility to switch it off or control it, whenever the viewer likes.
(the return to animation startpoint is very confusing)

Looking forward to future features of animation.

Marcel

Hi Marcel, hi Hopki,

in my opinion the fast return to the startpoint of animation is really confusing. It would be nice to have a speed regulation at least.
