zoom into next hotspot?

by phil.cooper@capita.co.uk » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:55 am

is there a way of when you click on a hotspot, you can customize it so it zooms into the view of the next hotspot, rather than zooming all the way in? hope that makes sense, you can do it with Easypano Tourweaver.

Not sure I fully understand the effect you seek to acheive.

But...looking at what PTP can do, here's an example of how you can set up a hostpot link target view and define a transition type for a hotspot.

Screenshot 1 - create a hotspot and define a link to another pano in the tour, this will load the target pano in the 3D Editor pane. Adjust the 3D editor view to desired target view by dragging and zoomin in/out - and then right-click to set the hotspot view.

Screenshot 2 - define the transition type you wish to use.

Does this enable you to achieve the effect you want?

If not perhaps you can provide an online example of the Tourweaver behaviour you wish to emulate with PTP.

hi,

it is quite hard to explain. ive attached some screenshots.

Image1 -
click on the hotspot

Image2 -
image zooms into view which is similar to the start of the next image.

Image3 -
next image starts.

In tourweaver, you can customize the transition so it looks as though the scene is transforming into the next.

hope thats a little clearer.

thanks

Try the 'Zoom in - load spot view' transition in PTP.

ive tried that, it zooms all the way in. I want it to zoom in a specified ammount and also rotate round to match the view of the next image.

Can you show me a screenshot of the part of Tourweaver where you specify how this transition should behave?

Better still provide a URL for a Tourweaver tour which demonstrates the effect you seek.

It may be that none of the built-in transtion styles in PTP will do what you can do in Tourweaver.

In which case you could either delve into manual editing of the PTP/krpano XML command files, or just live with the PTP transition styles that are available.

OK, thanks for that.

How very wierdly Chinese that is - all back to front, but...there's no way of emulating that effect, I mean with a similar degree of user control, via the PTP GUI.

So you'd have to see what it would take to adapt the XML command files.

Whether that's worth the effort is up to you.
........

If you feel ambitious you could edit the default transitions or create your own transition type.

Open the Templates folder/directory.

Locate the Transition folder/directory.

The Transtion XML files are text files and can be edited with any text editor.

The krpano XML command file documentation can be found here:

Yes it can be done I have seen few panos done with krpano which had that option. Basically it was "look to" command in xml where you specify the area & zoom within the pano, as of now your only hope is to use custom xml for doing this. Let me see if I can dig those bookmarks for you.

Update
Found at least 1 forum link discussing that though this one is meant for auto mode the same feature was used in Paris 26 gigapixel pano done by KOLOR, where clicking on thumbnail takes you to a certain part of the pano at a specific zoom level.

From the link Mediavets provided of krpano documentation look at this one this can solve your problem but not as of now within PTP gui, hope this option is included in future.
