Large virtual tour - split / different start panorama's

by Maukoop.nl » Mon Dec 24, 2012 11:36 am

I got a suggestion/question. May be it is already possible, but I'd like to know if you can create one large virtual tour with multiple "start panoramas" (I refer to the option in PTP: first panorama displayed).

Here's the situation: a client has a large building with several departments for rent. I'd like to create one tour so that visitors can look at the entire complex.

However; on their website they'll describe every department separate per page. On these pages I'd like the visitors start the virtual tour on that particular place. They should have the opportunity to walk through the entire complex, but:

On page 1 describing space 1 - start with pano in space 1
On page 2 describing space 2 - start with pano in space 2
etc. etc.

An option is to create let's say 5 different tours with different index.xml's. However; then I'll have to host the images 5 times which isn't efficient. I'd like to have the option to create multiple indexes within the same image directory so that images, floorplans en menu's are only hosted one time.

I hope I can get some support on this feature. It'll be a great option for the larger tours.

This functionality is promised for V2.x of Panotour Pro.

In the meantime take a look at this:

Thank you very much. I'll inspect the plugin for KRPano.
