Hi all,

How do I include elements of the skin within the video export of an animation. I have a few information hotspots that I would like to remain.

For example:

Many thanks,

Is this what you're looking for?

You can add a variable track to the animation and then use those variables in the skin.

Hi Adam,
How the video output works is Pano2VR remaps the panorama to create each frame. You will see this in the output folder of the animation output.
Once all the frames have been created Pano2VR then runs FFMpeg to create an MP4 file from the frames, then if selected Pano2VR will then delete the frames only leaving the MP4 video in the output folder.
To this end the skin is not used in this process so therefore will not show.
If you use the animation in an HTML5 output then the skin will be seen, but of course, will not be a video output.
Regards,
Hopki

Thanks Hopki, just checking I was not missing anything. It would be a handy to have for exporting videos to social media. Can I request it as future feature please.

Kind regards,

Adam.
