Is the following possible:

Let's say I have a tour with two nodes, node A and B.
The tour starts at node A and its starting view is directed at node B.

Now when I go to node B and then want to go back to node A via a polygon hotspot, I want the viewing direction changed.

I started at node A with the view set towards node B, when I return to node A I want to look in the opposite direction.

I hope my problem is clear? I made a little drawing :)

Thanks,
Marc

Hi Marc,
See this page: https://ggnome.com/doc/hotspots-link-pa ... ithout-gps
And have a look at the first video.
Your looking for Target View.

Thank you very much, that's interesting. But as I understand it, this only works with hotspots and not polygon hotspots?

Correct?

So I would have to create a hotspot skin item that mimics that blue polygon hotspot look for it to fit in with the polygon hotspots?

Hi,
Polygon hotspots also have the type "Tour Node" and also have the Target feature.

I should have tested first instead of posting another question. Now I look like a fool :´-(
JK, thank you very much, this works perfectly!

Clients got lost when not arriving looking in the direction they expected and I was completely overthinking it, after I had seen your excellent webinar about variables and how to use them to set a FOV after change of nodes. I thought I had to do something similar.

PS: That's the tour in question

They got lost when going back from the back area to the front area.
