Hi

I'm looking at more interesting ways to overlay information on our panoramas.

We typically render our 360 panoramas out of 3dsmax (as opposed to creating photographic panoramas with camera and lens). We render them as 2x1 aspect ratio images.

I'd like to have information popups appear when buttons are clicked, but instead of simply having the text appear in a windowed box (as you usually see), I want to create the info to align with the panorama. Hard to describe, but, if we have a large room and we want to have a label for the floor area, I'd like to have the label look like it is actually painted on the floor. I can render out these labels so they will be png files with the same aspect ratio (2x1) and with transparent backgrounds.

How might I go about having these sorts of labels appear? Is it possible?

Hi RBirket,
I would render two images, one with and one without your popup information.
Then use the technique of extracting patches with the information and copy the patch to the other panorama.
Have a look at this webinar video as this is covered: https://ggnome.com/gg_webinars/doing-mo ... -hotspots/

Thanks for the reply - I'll take a look at that.
