i have a multiscenario tour and the north offset of the matching image sets is not equal
if i switch from one node to the other using $(cur) the pano "turns"
it does not take the north offset into consideration....

maybe you can help / it might need a fix by thomas...

Hey Frey,

When you say that the 'North' is not equal for your nodes, do you want them to be equal so that you can walk along in a straight line and not be turned? if so, hold the 'N' Key to change north for whatever node you are on. You will probably have to go through each node separately to change 'North' so that they will all line up correctly.

Hi FFrey,
If you're using the north setting then you need to use the Forward target.

I had that problem. The North was the same on both panoramas but the $(cur) did not behave as expected and the view was misaligned when I transitioned from one node to the other.

The problem was that the equirectangular/panoramic images had different centers. When I created the images, they were facing different directions.
I reset one of the images to look exactly the same than the other and that solved the problem.

Best regards

Hi jose maria,
$(cur) relies on both panoramas starting from the same point, you can set this up in something like Photoshop.
But using the North setting and then using the "Forward" target it will use the North setting as the reference.

So with North, you do not use $(cur).
