Adjust auto rotate start time & Speed

by Marv » Sat Oct 16, 2010 7:19 pm

1. Is there a way to adjust the time that the "Auto Rotate" starts?
It starts instantly on a new view and also after 1 second of in activity. I would like to change that to 3 sec and 5 sec respectively.

2. I would also like to slow the speed down as well.
3. Is there a way to only have the "auto Rotate" apply on the first Pano... or specific Panos?

Yes - you can edit all that it in the xml files.

These features are available in Panotour Pro - see screenshot.

No. At least not from the APT/PTP GUI. But might be a nice feature to have.

[Yes - you can edit all that it in the xml files.]

I found them and the "Autorotation" line... but I do not see the code for doing what I want to do.

hey Marv!

paste this into the place of you "autorotate" line:
Code: Select all
  <autorotate enabled="true"
            waittime="4.0"
            accel="1"
            speed="-7"
            horizon="0"
            tofov="70"
            />

waittime means to wait till the rotation starts.
accel means the speed of the start
speed should be clear . . a "minus" before the number means a ccw spin.
horizont means tilt and tofov means which fov the roation keeps.

sorry - had to delete the pano: it´s not official yet.

best, Klaus

Thanks Klaus. That's exactly what I wanted... and it was easy to cut and paste. Great/wonderful.

Love your example. Nice night shot.
