PTP2B4 crashed

by jschrader » Sat Nov 23, 2013 6:21 pm

I moved a project from my local WIN computer to my mobile Macbook.
The project opens, but when I hit create tour I got an error message that the files could not be written to the output folder. Which of course is no surprise as the HD drive on the local puter has a different name. No problem so far, but when I wanted to change the drive name in the BUILD section, PTP confronted me with a denial of response.

That said, I'm also confused that PTP needs to create a new output files and rerenders all my panoramas although everything was already there. Shouldn't PTP know that?

There's so much to say about flaws and improvements of file handling in PTP and I only hope that all these things get sorted out in the next 12 months, following the feedback you (hopefully) will get from your customers and that people do not arrange themselves to live with workarounds.

I am confused too - you said you moved the project from your Windows machine to a Mac so the output files could not already have been there (on the Mac) could they?

Of course I did not only move the PTP file but all files including the previous output.

I didn't even know that such an option exists.
Even if so, how should one know what it is good for?
I suggest "Export" or "Transfer" would be a more intuitive term here, if it is intended to do what I wanted to do.

It copies all resources used in a tour into one folder.

The name is carried over from APG so if one is familiar with that program.

That's wishful thinking :)
As PTP is a solitary platform to create virtual tours, no matter where the input comes from, it is advised to support the user by using common standards and not proprietary terms that are derived from errors previously made in other places. ;)
