Default Tour header

Hi all,

I am looking to produce a header as you can see on the attached image, something that stays in place like on this example: http://www.ar-studio.com.es/western_360hd.

Any ideas how I could achieve this in FPP? Should I set it to 100% width? (can I even do that in FPP?) or should I set it to a much larger width than would likely be someone's screen size?

just make your banner 3600 pix wide, and that will cover even the widest screen.

By my counter the widest screen was 1920 px (2,2% of visitors). Seems to be enough to make banner in this size. If it exist something wider the % will be probably 0,00?

The problem is that your banner is a wave.
If you want a simple straight banner you can make a little jpg (80px Height X 10px width) and fix it in the left top.

example:
Quote:
<spot id="banner" url=" images/banner.jpg" static="1" alpha="0.5" salign="LT" align="LT" staticX="0" staticY="0" scaleX="200"/>
With scaleX="200" you will have a light banner which cover 2000 px.

Regards

Christophe

A 2600x80 png in one color is just 4 kb so it does not really matter if you make full size.

Thanks again everybody. So it seems I am going to have to stick with a straight border.

I know flash is able to resize images very effectively and was hoping for the same effect here, just have no idea how. Oh well, maybe I'm a bit ahead of myself but that's not a bad thing eh!

You could make a wave that tapers to a straight, make it look like your wave to 1440 pix and them make it go straight to fill the gap for people with wider screens. Or set the image centre and make the wave taper to straight at either end.

Itís not hard to make it look good, and to be honest stretching an image using 100% does not always look the best.

I probably would make 2 version of the wave one for windowed and one for fullscreen.
with that said I know sizes are different.
I would use the background as big as possible. and the logo itself on another layer so that could be in the same place and undistorded.
just some ideas that pop into my mind seeing this.
another thing is you could ditch the whole upper part in fullscteen as I did in my aviodrome tour
the building is partly inside the viewing window and gone in fullscreen.
