Hello,

first of all, congrats for a wonderful refining of the app.

Now i am struggling step by step through all theses new features. The one I like most is the little planet intro. Unfortunatelly I can not imagine, how it works. Pls can someone help me to clarify things:

1.) What is the menaing of the "starting image" that one can insert?
2.) How can you extend the intro from 3 sec to 10 or 20 sec. ? ( Ifigured out, that a selected photo is shown for this time, but whts the use?)
3.) There is a "junp" from the intro to the pano. Is that normal?

Thanks for any input.

Regards
Georg

Hello geko,
Little planet and image introduction are two separate features, one can use both at the same time though.
Little planet : works only for the first panorama of the visit if this latter is 360x180 FOV. No way to set the duration from the user interface. You will have to go through xml coding.
Image Introduction : an image is displayed at the begining of the tour during "Display time" seconds.

I also observed the "jump" sometimes, it comes from the "Limit zoom to image resolution" "panorama property". You can go around this problem disabling this option.

Would be nice/better to have the ability to set duration in the UI.

I am very pleased to have this Intro image feature.

Now I'd also like to have a very similar 'Help/Info' image feature with an optional on/off button on the Navigation bar.
