XP SP3 - PTPv1.8.0 - setting a different hotspot view from the default
I am building a tour where you have a staircase landing with multiple rooms leading off from it.
When you are in one of these rooms, I set a returning hotspot to the Landing panorama to "exit" the room and return to the landing.
For this "exit" hotspot from the room back to the landing I am setting a different hotspot view in the 3D Hotspot editor window by right clicking and selecting "set as hotspot view". The objective is that when you click on the "exit" hotspot and return to the main Landing panorama you see what you would if leaving the room rather than what is the default view for the Landing panorama itself.
I have set this in PTP but when the tour is built and viewed locally, this alternative "exit" hotpost view is not picked up and you default to the panorma's view rather than the desired hotspot view.
The first pic shows the tour build with the "3D Editor : Hotspot view" set showing the two rooms and the exit hotspot of the tour on the right screen.
The second pic shows the same but after "exiting" the room via the hotspot. As you can see it has adopted the default view of the Landing panorama rather than the expected "hotspot view" previously set.
Re: XP SP3 - PTPv1.8.0 - setting a different hotspot view from the default
the "default" transition is not working "as expected" when you set a specific view for your hotspot. You have to select a transition using this spot view.
An issue is opened on this subject, it should be fixed in next release of Panotour Pro. A "default" transition loading spot view should be used when a spot view is set.
In earlier versions you could always select spot AND pano view in the editor. Now you can select EITHER spot or pano view depending on what you select in the main-window. No big deal - but would prefer it the earlier way!
If you want something you´ve never had, then you´ve got to do something you´ve never done.
