I was just browsing randomly the forum and opened that thread. I have been using Panotour pro since one year and have been very happy with its simplicity of usage to create "decent" virtual tour. However, end of september I'll have to shoot a tour for a private school and they are looking at something a bit more "classy and/or designed". After seeing the tour of that hospital, well, I can say I find it simple but very nice and I'm pretty sure they would like it. I love that menu on the side and especially the thumbnail stack at the bottom. I find very very frustrating not being able in panotour 1.8 to display a "simple" thumbnail from the place instead of the stitched picture that is very hard to understand for newbies eyes and very confusing. Anyway, that's not my point.I was kind of wondering how difficult is it to create a template like this in krpano ? is that possible for example to create a "base" in panotour and then optimize it with codes to reach a similar result than shown in this tour ?
To be actually honnest code is not exactly my cup of tea. When I see for example xml files.... brrrrr. Does anyone know if there's some people out there that offer affordable services to create this kind of templates ?
Thanks to every upcoming contribution !
All the best
Welcome to the forum...
I'd forget about that approach.
Instead check out PTP 2.x now available in alpha form - incomplete with some bugs - but useable, even for production work if you upgrade your license.
You can do much more with PTP 2.x in term of tour UI, for example it's simple to use custom thumbnails images.
PTP 2.x uses a different coding structure so any 'template' developed for PTP 1.8 wouldn't work with PTP 2.x anyway.
If you like to join 400+ others in testing/using PTP 2.x then use the contact forum to ask Kolor to register you on the Kolor VIProom forum set up to support testing and pre-relase use of PTP 2.x, wher you willfind downlaod links and can obtain peer support with developer input.http://www.kolor.com/contact.html
