General Discussion / IVRPA Belfast 2019
« Last post by Ruud van Reenen on June 05, 2019, 00:03:39 »

I will be visiting the annual IVRPA (International VR Professionals Association) conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Monday, June 10th.

Really looking forward to meeting other VR enthousiasts, so if you happen to be there that day as well and would like to meet, drop me a message!

Announcements / VR Tourviewer for Oculus Quest coming soon!
« Last post by Ruud van Reenen on May 05, 2019, 19:19:46 »
An Oculus Quest VR headset is currently pre-ordered from Oculus. As soon as it arrives at the office I'll work on making a version of VR Tourviewer for Oculus Quest. Since the Quest functionality is similar to the Oculus Rift it could be pretty straight forward.

I'll post here again if I have any news on the subject.

Greetings, Ruud

Image and video overlays have a 'Click Mode' in Pano2VR, VR Tourviewer can handle those.

But not only navigational hotspots are supported for Pano2VR tours, you can use hotspots with a direct url to a jpg or png image or an mp4 video.

I have a new question:
Image and Videooverlays are supported, right? How can they be triggered / opened if only navigational hotspots are supported?

You can switch between day and night shots just like switching to another panorama, so there's some loading time in between with the black screen with the progress indication.

This was done to prevent having to keep images of two panoramas in memory on mobile, since loading images from web with Unity (the program used to create the app) is a lot less streamlined than with a browser.

I'll reevaluate this and will see if I can load a second panorama without discarding the first one so transitions can be supported and the experience is more seemless.

About the hotspots: currently there's only one default hotspot icon in VR Tourviewer, custom hotspots aren't supported. Adding a predefined set of hotspots is planned, those can then be chosen to be linked to a certain Pano2VR skin-id.

Hi Ruud,

thanks for your explanation!
So switching panos with same view is supported? Example: I have two shots from the same position, one is shot during day and one is shot during night. Is it possible to switch between these two without a viewchange?
So, Hotspots (from pano2vr) with my own graphics are supported, right?

Hi Jan, welcome to the forum!

- can i create tours with pop up images and videos visible in oculus go?
yes, overlay images and videos are supported

- is it possible to make transitions between two panos with same view (day / night effect)?
Transitions (fading etc.) aren't supported yet, but you can use a hotspot to switch between different panoramas.

- pano2vr is the editor for all these features, right?
Yes, VR Tourviewer focusses on supporting Pano2VR tours, only very basic krPano tours are supported.
Note that skins, maps, animation and menus aren't supported yet.
