Pano tour for PC use, no web - how it works?

Post by Micha » Wed Sep 04, 2019 3:08 pm

Hi,

I have seen that Pano2VR doesn't support Flash/MOV anymore and so I ask me, how could be a pano tour be shared from PC to PC without web?

For example from time to time my clients ask me to render panoramas of virtual scenes and create tours. In the past I used the Flash export. But how would it work per HTML5? Is there a tool to get a tour within one executable file which can be started at the clients side?

Best-

Not an answer to your questions but

Part of the reason for the move to stop using Adobe Flash is because various browsers are stopping support for Flash.

Example: starting last August 2019 Chrome is sending notices like this

I looked around for a non web solution and it looks like the guys from easypano understand the need - flash and exe export are available. I don't tested it yet.

Maybe flash and exe export could be considered for Pano2VR too. The story behind - 3D artist like I render panoramas (2D/3D) of interiors (architecture, trains, airplanes) and my clients like to get VR tours for presentations. They don't like to see the design studies over the internet. Anything should be simple and secure. Best I send a file to my clients and they click on it and the VR tour starts.

Hi Micha,

Have you taken a look at the Garden Gnome Package Viewer https://ggnome.com/ggpkgviewer It's available for both Mac and Windows.

I have posted some info on my blog post at https://tonyredhead.com/360panoramas/viewing-local-mac It's for Mac but should apply to PC.

cheers,

Tony
