Huh, I'm really looking forward to this! Don't know if you read the forum regularly, but a lot of features that have been asked are being implemented, as it seems... Thats really great!

Personally, I've been searching for a possibility to load new XMLs when linking to the next pano just a few days ago, and voil?: Denis does it, haha

Keep up your brilliant work!
Regards, Ph.

Hi Denis, new user here (just ordered minutes ago) and just wanted to say "HI!".
... and certainly glad to see you are still alive.


FYI, I've actually been wanting to order your tool for a few weeks now, but have been concerned that you've maybe stopped developing it (since there's been no sign of you since July :??? ). I was honestly going to break down and order pano2qtvr today instead and, just in case, I decide to check your blog out again today. Wow was I surprised to see the update announcement... sure made my day and your timing certainly couldn't have better!


So anyhow, I'm very excited about this new release! You've got a excellent product and I really look forward to what you do next. Keep up the great work!


Best Regards,

Adrian Brown

Hi Denis,

Nice update!

Can you tell us more about qtvr emulating? does it takes more ressources? does it display exactly the same quality as the original qtvr?

thanks!

Thank you for Cylinder support, just got my first example done, and have to say the results are very smooth.

Iím having a hard time trying to get my hotspots to bring up the xml files.
Below is the code that Iím using for this page, the hotspot is on the backside of the pano between the 2 elephants, that little red dot on the wall. When I click on it the new pano opens but the xml is still from the old page, also the pano spins madly around. http://www.indiavrtours.com/jaipur/e..._morning4.html

<spot id="spot_id" url="images/red_h.png" pan="207" tilt="11" onClick="loadPano(panoName=images/elephants4&xml_file=elephants4.xml)" />

---------------------------------------
Here is the info from FPP version 2.2 explaining how it should be setup:

By default, no XML file be loaded, use direct indication if you want to load new parameters file:
loadPano(panoName=panoramas/nature&xml_file=nature.xml) (loads panorama with a new parameters file)
This action applies new panorama parameters from XML file, new limits parameters (if your file contains <limits></limits> section), new autorotation parameter (<autorotator></autorotator>). Section <hotspots></hotspots> will be reload by default as well (all hotspots and global parameters will be unloaded and new <hotspots></hotspots> XML will be placed). You can disable reloading of <hotspots></hotspots> parameters using global.disableReloading=1 (it is useful if you have the same hotspots set for all panoramas in tour and arbitrary tour's entry point).

Thanks for any and all help,
Roger

You can find the answer in the log (it's a good idea to have Flash Tracer):
Quote:
CubePanorama v2.2 loaded.
Load layer 2: files/hotspots.swf
Load layer 6: files/mp3player.swf
Load layer 5: files/autorotator.swf
Load layer 3: files/controller.swf
Warning: Reference to undeclared variable, 'repeat'
Autorotator v2.0 successfully loaded.
Hotspots v2.0 successfully loaded.
You need to update all files (not only pano.swf). It's especially important for Autorotator (it should be 2.2 version!) and Hotspots (2.2 version!)

Hi. Thanks!

QTVR cube panoramas are loading without any quality reduction. And no suprflous resources is taken. Parsing and loading are very smooth (especially for multi tiles panoramas). QTVR cubes are now really recommended format for Flash Panorama Player. Only .swf format can be more promising in future.

Also, I need to note that Flash Panorama Player loads and parses .mov files several times faster then QuickTime player itself. You can test it yourself, do not forget to remove bandwidth restrictions in XML file.

The last step will be hardware support in Flash Player 9. Adobe promised to release it this autumn (beta version is available already). I will publish a special plugin to support this future for v2.2.
