Question about "using ipad to sync direction of view" and watermark

by ori0n » Tue Dec 25, 2012 5:32 pm

Hi

I had tried to do some searching in the forum and had some difficulties. Please kindly help me with the following 2 questions:

1. How can I make my virtual tour on my ipad "follow" the way I face my ipad?

2. Can I insert my image in the tour but make it slightly transparent? Its like having a watermark on my tour.

Please do kindly advise.

Do you want the semi-transparent image to rotate with the pano or not?

Yes, I am looking at those "watermark" that stays with the window even when the tour is moving around.

Let me test out on my pc later to see it is the function I am talking about.

Create your watermark image using a graphics editor that supports creation of formats with transparency - the PNG format works well in PTP.

Use the Extras/Logo feature to add your watermark image to the tour - see first screenshot. Note if you set one dimension as zero the image will retain its aspect ratio.

As you can see in second screenshot the semi-transparent watermark image overlays the pano image and does not move with the pano when it is panned or zoomed.
