I'm currently experimenting with a work flow using the xml code to hand editing hotspot links. On the build0.xml, build1.xml, build2.xml hotspot section, at the very end of the the line of code is the coordinates: ath="1.28469" atv="0.285714"
I've then created this equirectangular pano coordinate map, that details down to the 1Âº: http://i.imgur.com/F1DZKnD.png
(The actual file is too large demo easily online, so it's reduced in quality)
Here's a demo in VRtour format: http://www.atxcloud.com/wp-content/uploads/Panos/rnd/20130910_coordinate_map/coordinate_map_vrtour/coordinate%20map.html
VRtour format is not the best way to identify the coordiante. My work flow at the moment is:
- open the coordinate map in Photoshop (the coordiante map.psd has transparencies and two layers of inverted colors for ease of seeing in light & dark pano photo scenes).
- place pano photo scene as a layer underneath the coordinate map
- copy/paste & edit code for hotspot.
- tweak for perfection.
I'm dreaming of a plugin that would reveal the ath/atv coordinate in the VRtour mode so that I can easily tweak/edit the xml. Be nice to have that built into PTP gui.
If anybody is interested in the .psd file, email me and I will be happy to share a link to download a 8510x4255px. (should have made it in vector paths for best scale
, oh well, spent enough time on make this already.)
