Question about functionality
« on: November 08, 2018, 16:34:21 »
Hi guys, i just saw the examples on oculus go and everything works fine. I speccially like the fact you can use the controller!
I do have some questions before i go and buy pano2vr:
- can i create tours with pop up images and videos visible in oculus go?
- is it possible to make transitions between two panos with same view (day / night effect)?
- pano2vr is the editor for all these features, right?

Thanks for any hints and answers to my questions!
Cheers,
Jan

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.

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?

Thanks,
Jan

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.

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

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.
