PTP25HEADER-Final

The final version of Panotour / Panotour Pro 2.5, our virtual tour creation software is out!
This 2.5 version includes exciting new features in relation with 360 video, HMD and improvements to the user interface.

Panotour Viewer has also been updated, for all platforms: desktop, Android and iOS. This was to add support of the VR mode. You will be able to find the Panotour Viewer changelog at the bottom of this post.


Thank you to all the beta testers who provided their feedback, thoughts and bug reports!

All Panotour/Panotour Pro 2.x users can download and try this new beta version without limitations!


But what's new exactly in this new version? Many things! You'll find below examples of the new capabilities of Panotour Pro 2.5:


HMD support - Panotour Pro only

Tours generated with Panotour Pro are now compatible with virtual reality HMD such as Cardboards, Homido, Zeiss VR One, ColorCrossVR, Oculus DK1 and DK2. This new version of Panotour Pro comes with two new plugins, "WebVR button" and "Prev/Next Keys" enabling this new feature to be implemented in the virtual tour.


How does it work - smartphone based HMD?

Grab your smartphone and your HMD, click on the link below and take a look at the gallery, everything is explained:

You can now get immersed into your virtual tour with your smartphone - this feature is enabled on most Android and iOS devices - and in addition you only need an inexpensive smartphone-based HMD!


Don't have an HMD yet?

Then click on the button below to grab a Homido on the Kolor store! The Homido is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones from 4” to 5,7”.


How does it work - Oculus users?

You can also get immersed in your virtual tour through your Oculus. To do so, you need a WebVR enabled browser. To learn more about this technology click here. Then simply click the VR icon to enter the Oculus mode and enjoy:

Oculus

We would like to thank Nuno A. Madeira for letting us use his virtual tour to showcase the HMD feature of Panotour Pro 2.5.

Take 5 minutes to have a look at his wonderful virtual tour of Bilbao, you won't regret it:

Standard video and 360 video support - Panotour Pro only


Panotour Pro is now able to manage spherical and flat videos as standard scenes. With this new feature come 2 new plugins "Video Control Bar" and a "Video Progress Bar", and a new button combination in standard control bars "Play/Pause" to play/pause the video.


How does it work?

You can simply import a video file as a new scene. You can also import several video files of different quality to make sure the video will be displayed on mobile devices with low bandwidth. A fixed hotspot can be added in the video allowing the users to move to another still or video scene.

You'll find below an example of a virtual tour including a 360 video as a scene. This virtual tour has been created by Xavier Spertini around our office in France.


How to see the video:

  • Click on the "star-shaped" hotspot named "Vol au dessus d'Alpespace" which is located on the floor close to the pond
  • The video should play automatically on computers and you need to tap on the screen on mobile devices to launch it.
  • You can exit the video at any time by clicking/tapping on the hotspot located on the bottom. Remember, you can now add hotspots but their positions are fixed in the sphere (or in the plane for planar video scenes) for the video duration.

Don't know how to create 360 video?

To create those kind of 360 videos you need a GoPro rig and Autopano Pro/Giga + Autopano Video/Pro. To learn more about the workflow check out the video on this page.

User interface enhancements

Several improvements have been brought to the global experience using Panotour/Pro. We added shortcuts to the hotspot editor to enhance productivity on spotting.It is also now much easier to create groups of panoramas. Check this video to learn more:

Miscellaneous

Several other new features and improvements are offered in Panotour/Pro 2.5 including:

  • Web Content spots: With Panotour Pro, you can now add any web page in a distorted spot in your tour, over a wall, a screen, etc... just like you already do with images and videos.
  • Social buttons: A new plugin to be able to add the Facebook, Twitter and Google+ share and like/+1 buttons over the tour.
  • Plugin enhancements: Several improvements have been brought to existing plugins including but not limited to the control bars, the social share, the video box ones. To learn more please check the change log below.

Need help using the new features?

The button below will lead you directly to the documentation in relation with the new features of Panotour/Pro 2.5:


Important notice: To be displayed correctly on Android phones on WebVR mode, tours should contain only one video scene.

Tours generated by Panotour Pro are compatible with HMD (Cardboards, Homido, VR One, ColorCrossVR, Oculus DK1 and DK2, GearVR*), if they contain spherical scenes. * partial support
With this feature come two new plugins, "WebVR button" that allows the user to enter VR mode on mobiles, and a "Prev/Next Keys" plugin to allow the user to change scene with keyboard while the HMD is on.

Web Content spots

With Panotour Pro, you can now add any web page in a distorted spot in your tour, over a wall, a screen, etc... just like you already do with images and videos.

Social buttons

A new plugin to be able to add the Facebook, Twitter and Google+ share and like/+1 buttons over the tour.

Analytics plugin

Add your Google Analytics tracking ID and you'll be able to follow the loading of all scenes.

Loading transition plugin

This new plugin allows you to change the way the new loaded panorama appears over the older one.
The animations only appear with HTML5 player when WebGL is activated.

New actions

There are many new available actions into the "view control": zoom in/out, move left/right/top/bottom, look to.
Some HTML5 plugins (Gallery, Social Share, PDF viewer, Web video viewer, Website viewer) receive the open, close and toggle actions.
Some plugins (SmallGalleryBar, Compass, Radar, Simple button, Toggle button, WebVR button) receive the show, hide and toggle actions.
Snow and Rain plugins receive the start, stop and toggle actions.

XML files generation enhanced

If your project is already built, the tour generation generates only the XML files.
We enhanced the performance of this generation, so you'll be able to see your modifications faster on a large tour with many scenes, many plugins and/or many spots.

Improved Tiles generation

Due to issues on mobile devices, MS Edge browser with WebGL renderer, the tiles of all full spherical panoramas are now resized to 512x512 pixels.
/!\ WARNING: If your project is already built, all full spherical panoramas tiles will be rebuilt during next build to store tiles as 512x512 pixels sets.
/!\ WARNING: If, in a previous version, you locked spherical panoramas to not generate their tiles anymore, you'll have to unlock them during first build.

Automatic scaling on mobile devices

UI elements of the tour are automatically scaled on mobile devices.
A new option in the Build properties allows you disable this option.

UI Enhancements

  • Search feature in Tour area : Just enter a part of a name to select all the panoramas or groups containing this text into their name
  • We have added shortcuts to the hotspot editor to enhance productivity on spotting : Ctrl+F: Fullscreen, M: Move, L: Polygon, P: Picture, S: Spot, V: Video, C: Crop, Left/Right keys: Prev/Next pano
  • Group windows are now resizable. They are still created by default with 2 columns of panoramas, but you can now resize them to facilitate tour management.
  • Scene order can be changed easier than before, and groups display reflects the order of its scenes.
  • Scenes can be duplicated
  • Groups can be duplicated
  • Plugin instances can be duplicated
  • Spot style instances can be duplicated
  • Plugins can be re-ordered with drag-n-drop
  • The default view of flat scenes can be set to the whole scene more easily
  • All tours are now generated for desktop and mobiles. And HTML5 is the standard and default player used. So there is now only one option that allows you to enable or not the flash player fallback.
  • Panotour Pro interface is now available in Italian

Plugin Enhancements

  • Control Bars
    The home button in control bars is now able to load a specific URL.
    Previous/Next buttons can call the new actions "Load previous/next groups" instead of previous/next panorama.
    All control bars contain a new button that enable the activation of the VR mode.
  • Social Share
    Social share plugin now allows you to share the tour on VK.
  • Video Box
    Added SoundCloud as a possible provider.
  • Gallery, Website Box, Video Box, PDF Box, Social Share plugins
    The buttons of the Gallery, Website Box, Video Box, PDF Box, Social Share plugins can be customized
    Tooltips can be set over these buttons.
    A background overlay image can be set behind these plugins.
  • Double click
    Added double tap support.
  • Title
    Added the possibility to use the group color when displaying the current group title.
  • PanotourMaps
    Add 45° imagery support on Google maps layer
  • Panorama Menu and Panorama List
    Support of the "current group" source.

Tour

  • Generated tours now use the HTML5 player by default. Flash player is now mainly used as a fallback.
  • Tooltips on point spots can be displayed permanently.

Tour language and generated files

If you run Panotour Pro in another language than english, Panotour Pro will generate a "messages" xml file suffixed by the language used in Panotour Pro.
For example if you run PTP in german, and if your main tour file is mytour.html, the messages file is now mytour_messages_de.xml.
A new advanced option in the Build properties, allow you to generate multiple languages files according to a list of languages you want to embed in your tour.
A new advanced action allows you to switch from a language to another using those new files.
Panotour Pro does not any translation, you'll have to edit the generated files to translate your tour messages. Make sure you you back these edited files up, they will be overwritten if you build the tour again.

Player

This version of Panotour/Panotour Pro generates tours using the third pre-release of 1.19 version of krpano

Limitations


Video scenes and Spots

Spots are static spots. Their positions are fixed in the sphere (or in the plane for planar video scenes) for the duration of the video .

Video scenes and HMD

To be displayed correctly on Android phones on VR mode, tours should contain only one video scene.
To play a video on a mobile, users have to interact with the device, so mixing multiple videos in a single VR tour would require touching the mobile screen while it's on the head.
Windows Phone are not able to display spherical video scenes. They will be displayed as a flat video over the tour. So hotspots on videos are not displayed too.
Spots that do not load another full spherical panorama are removed from the VR tour, except picture spots that do nothing.
Polygon spots that load a panorama are converted into your default point spot.
If your video scene file has sound, you have to set also a sound track to let this sound be played on iPhone

Web Content spots

Those spots are available only in Panotour Pro.
They are displayed in the HTML5 player only, and they work great with the standard projection. If you change the projection of the viewer (Little Planet, Architectural, etc...) they will not exactly match the wanted area.

/!\ Warnings


Tiles generation

If your project is already built, all full spherical panoramas tiles will be built during next build to store tiles as 512x512 pixels sets.
If, in a previous version, you locked spherical panoramas to not generate their tiles anymore, you'll have to unlock them during first build.


Internet Explorer 8 support

Google discontinued support of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) for the Google Maps Javascript API v3 around August 31st 2015.
IE8 is no longer supported by many websites, including Google Apps and Google Analytics.
Microsoft has annouced that they will no longer support IE8 from January 2016 for desktop operating systems.
Kolor will also discontinue support of IE8 into Panotour exports progressively.
So we recommend that all users upgrade to more modern browsers.

Custom HTML templates

Custom HTML templates have to be updated to be able to use the VR mode of tours
So if you are using some HTML templates based on those available on Panotour Pro documentation page, download their new version and update your own templates according to this new version.
http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_-_Advanced_-_HTML_Templates#Examples_of_Custom_HTML_Templates

Third-Party plugins

We did a fix on the all the plugins samples available on Panotour Pro documentation website.
So if you are using some plugins samples available there, download their new version and update your own plugins according to this new version.
http://www.kolor.com/wiki-en/action/view/Panotour_-_Advanced_-_Extra_Plugins#Free_plugins

Panorama specific plugins

If your projects use some panorama specific plugins, you downloaded on our documentation dedicated page (Extra plugins), then update those plugins. If you don't your tours may not work due to krpano changes in the management of variables.

For third party plugins developers

The 1.19 version of krpano manages additions/substraction during conditional tests. This new ability induces some errors if your code contains some variables with a minus "-" or "+" sign.
