video hotspot wrong coordinates

by jfvuqac » Thu Jul 31, 2014 7:09 pm

hello,

I'm trying to put a video in a planar pano. I draw as I'm supposed from the upper left corner around the tv monitor image... Video appears and play but its squashed. It seems the points coordinates aren't saved properly. I can edit the XML file, but any save on my project will reset it.

Here's a link: http://www.uqac.ca/ila_tmp/TST_VIDEO/tst.html

Any idea what is going wrong here?

Thanks,
Jef.

Welcome to the forum...

1. Does your planar image have the projection set as planar in Panorama properties? Video hotspots don't seem to 'understand' planar images and apply distortion as if the projection was spherical.

I think you could overcome the problem by using a spherical projection image rather the planar image for your partial pano.

2. Correct - edits made to XML files are overwritten on the next build.

Thanks for the reply!
Planar projection is indeed checked...
I tried to use the other one but my image isn't good for that.

On another topic: now auto tour is zooming instead of panning (rotate).
Seen this before?

Jef.

note: final tour is gonna play on a touch screen within google chrome in kiosk mode. I run EasyPHP 13 on winXP... surprisingly, the video is positioned right on the spot!!!

If it is an image stitched in APP/APG then it can be renderd with a spherical projection.

Partial (FOV less than 360x180) pano images with a spherical projection and planar images can behave oddly with autorotate and autotour.
