HI,
I used Google Cardboard to enter the VR mode , but found all the Skins element and link disappear, only the hotspot left, Could any master instruct us how to show the Skin component we designed or interact with the link put inside the 360 scene which was built using pano2vr silhouette skin (ex: ht_video_file, ht_image, ht_info...). In WebVR mode, we want to link to website, show the youtube video modal... etc.... interacting with the scene with the links..... Is that possible..? We have Google Daydream headset already, but not test it successfully yet to have skin component to appear in WebVR mode... and we're going to buy HTC Vive to test if there is a better complete web vr experience, not just viewing the 360 scene but also can interacting with the scene....

Thanks very much for your instructions

Hi,
Pano2VR only supports Node hotspots in WebVR/WebXR.
So if you select the VR button, you will see spinning, round hotspots, that's only if you're not using custom hotspot images.
Have a look at https://www.vrtourviewer.com/

Thanks Hopki~ So if we want to do more interactions in VR/VX mode, what solution would you recommend ? Is there a converter from pano2vr to those device-compatible format file to display all the interactive element created by pano2vr?
Or we need to create these from scratch using other headset attached software to achieve that....?

Thanks again for your guidance :)

VIEW PANO2VR TOURS
Supports Pano2VR tours with: hotspot and polygonal hotspot navigation, image and video overlays, panoramic video, surround audio and lensflares. Skins, maps, transitions and camera animation are not supported.
^^^^^^^^

seems vr tourviewer can do more interactions, but not including Skins, maps..... If we need Skins component be showed in VR, what solution can we choose? can ordering a white label app fit our need?

Thanks again :)

Hi ~ Hopki, I've watched your tutorial video(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo-o_i6ktFA) and saw Oculus GO seems to be able to browse web site inside VR mode, and with the controller everything seems become feasible, I think we should buy one and give it a test. May I ask one more thing, is it possible for Oculus GO to view pano2vr project with full functionality, like watching youtube video, browsing website, see all the element made by silhouette skin , I tested VR tourviewer (free version) , and can view image , info.... but didn't watch video successfully. if licensed version of VR tourviewer can achieve that?

thanks again

Hi,
All questions about VRtourviewer should be asked on their website.
But Pano2VR 6 WebVR only supports navigation hotspots nothing else.
This is all planned for the next version.
