We just finished a new skin. Have a look here then see my questions below:

http://www.aerialsphere.com/spheres/ari ... owntown-2/

Is there a way that we can timeout the 'help' window element that is displayed? We'd like the element to hide when either:

1) the user clicks the 'X' close icon

or

2) after 'x' seconds have elapsed since loading is complete.

is this a possibility?

Hi DJ,
Version 5.x will have timed events so this will be possible then, but for now only the close button works as you have it, BTW you still need to select load for your lower level ;-)

On a side note we run a Pano2VR in the wild features on our blog page. Would you mind us showing this panorama?
Please let me know and if you have any interesting facts about it like how you shot it etc.
Regards,
Hopki

Thanks.

On the lower level multires, we are going through the hundreds of spheres we've done and fixing that.

For your blog page I would be happy to offer a sphere and provide some facts. We are doing that with a company called 'TriggerTrap' now who we use their distance lapse camera triggering system for our sphere mapping project (google earth in the sky).

A better sphere to use though would be this one:

The other one was one we shot a year ago with a camera/lens combination that we did not like. It suffered from much chromatic abberation. You're more than welcome to use the sphere I provided link to above. I can get you some facts for your blog in a few days. If you send me an email at dj.vegh@aerialsphere.com I will reply back with some info.

Hi DJ,

sorry to hijack the thread - but what altitude was this shot from? Great work, as usual.....

Stu,

Our aerial spheres are typically photographed from 1,000 - 1800' above ground. The Arizona State University example above was from approx 1300' above ground.

And to move back to the topic of the skin...

I'd love to see an option for changing the spin control. :)

Karyn, thanks to the documentation link. I am pleased to see written Skin Action definitions section of the Documentation. I successfully printed this page. It appears that the Documentation is mature enough to be a printed booklet. By the way, while on the page I found that keying CTRL P sent 18 pages (9 pages double sided print) of well formatted page to my HP printer with good margins. Now have to figure out how to insert page brakes. Great work. Thanks.
