I'm sure this has been asked a million times before, but what's the best method of viewing or testing your newly rendered Flash Pano or Tour in your own browser?
If my memory serves me correctly, as I haven't done this since the 90's, *.swf is a self contained file and all it requires to run is to be embedded in a web page. As I don't want to buy Dreamweaver again are there any cheaper alternatives?
Also, the video tutorials to my mind leave a lot to be desired. Although if you watch them a few times they do begin to make some sense and do eventually become helpful. But the one and only Panotour video is less than helpful and to my mind very confusing. Any alternatives?
Panotour and Panotour Pro will convert your stitched pano image(s) into a Flash format - and enable you easily to create a virtual tour of linked panos - and can also create an HTML file which will display the Pano/Tour when accessed using a browser.
Andrew, I've downloaded and bought the licence for both programs so I am up and running. Maybe I was in one of my thick moods when last I looked at it, but I found the one and only video tutorial just a little confusing. It didn't seem to offer much in the way of any advice, or much about anything. The earlier interface doesn't help much.
Now, what you say about the HTML page that Panotour can generate is interesting. That would solve the problem of testing/viewing your work in a browser. How do you do it?
Ok, I'll keep trying but don't you just hate it when these programs ............do your 'ead in.
