Panotour 2.5.12 is now available!

We are happy to announce the release of a new minor update for Panotour and Panotour Pro 2.
This new version introduces a couple of cool new features:
  • Automatic creation of scene groups: If you drag and drop a folder, a group with the files from this folder will automatically be created. This new way to create groups makes it easier and quicker to build large tours!
  • Display the distance between two scenes: New placeholders allow you to easily display the distance in kilometers, miles, yards or feet between two scenes. Your scenes need to be geolocalised in order to use this new feature. Read the change log below for more info.
  • New autoplay rules for audio files and video scenes: It is now possible to enable the audio and/or video scene playback with a click/touch on the Splash/Start Screen (i.e. Project Properties > Start parameters > Splash Screen) or a user gesture (click/touch, drag/pan and key press) on the image or video scene itself.
    If no user input is detected, a play button will be displayed over the first video scene.
Panotour Pro 2.5.12 also fixes a couple of bugs. For more info about these bugs, please read the change log below:

Main changes

What's new?

· Automatic creation of scene groups

If you drag and drop folders in Panotour, the images and videos from these folders will be loaded as scenes in groups named like the folder.
So if your sources files are already organized by groups/folders, the drag and drop will avoid you the grouping job in Panotour.

Now the group ID can also be retrieved using the (i) icon next to the group name.

· New placeholders to display the distance between scenes in tooltips

If your scenes are geolocalised, you can use one of the following placeholders in the tooltips of the spots linking them together

  • %DISTANCEINMETERS% - Display the number of meters between the 2 scenes
  • %DISTANCEINKILOMETERS% - Display the number of kilometers between the 2 scenes
  • %DISTANCEINMILES% - Display the number of miles between the 2 scenes
  • %DISTANCEINYARDS% - Display the number of yards between the 2 scenes
  • %DISTANCEINFEET% - Display the number of feet between the 2 scenes

· The title of the scenes over the thumbnails in the Thumbnails Bar plugins

A new option allows you to display the name of each scene permanently over the thumbnails in the Thumbnails Bar plugins.

Improvements

· Autoplay for audio files and video scenes

To respond to new autoplay policies applied to browsers (Chrome, Safari, etc.) the code for audio files and video scenes has been changed.

It is now possible to enable the audio and/or video scene playback with a click/touch on the Splash/Start Screen (i.e. Project Properties > Start parameters > Splash Screen) or a user gesture (click/touch, drag/pan and key press) on the image or video scene itself.
If no user input is detected, a play button will be displayed over the first video scene.

Issues

· iOS 11.3+ and black rendering

Since the last iOS versions, there is a black rendering problem for video scenes after playing several video scenes.
This is related to the blend applied during the transitions between scenes.

Until the release of a fix for iOS and/or krpano, the default transition for iOS devices will be made with no blend.
The Effects > Loading transition Panotour plugin will also not be applied in virtual tours on iOS devices.

· Decoding issue with Panorama Combobox and Simple Thumbnails Bar plugins into Panotour Standard Edition

Due to a krpano script decoding issue, the Panorama Combobox and Simple Thumbnails Bar plugins have been corrupted. They are now repaired.
