Le journal des modifications : quoi de neuf dans Panotour et Panotour Pro 1.6 (en anglais)


New Thumbnails plugin: Thumbnails stack

Thumbnails can now be displayed as a stack in a corner of the tour.
The user can click on a stack to expand it vertically or horizontally and click on a thumbnail to open a chosen panorama.

Add a template for hotspots tooltips

If you set %p as a tooltip on a hotspot linked to a panorama, the tooltip of the spot will show the name of the targeted panorama.

View projections

You can add some entries in the contextual menu to change the projection used to display the current panorama.

New theme

There are now 4 default themes available. The new one is similar to the KrPano theme.

Easy placement of panoramas in the main area

Add a new panorama to a project and it will be placed next to the other panoramas. There are no more superimposed panoramas.
If you type « Shift R » on your keyboard, the panoramas will be reorganized.

The following tips already existed in the previous versions, but they were not well known:
If you type « Ctrl 0″ the zoom will be adapted to fit all the panoramas.
If you type « Ctrl A », all the panoramas are selected so you can modify their properties at once.
As in all standards software applications, you can also hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on the hotspots or panoramas to add other items to the selection.

Reducing distortions

A new « reduce distortion » button in the « Panorama Properties/Images » tab computes the best dimensions to avoid distortions in the tour.

The following features are only available in Panotour Pro.

Google Maps inside

A new Maps plugin, Panotour Maps, is available in the « Extra » tab.
If you use this plugin, your panoramas containing GPS data will be automatically localized on a map.
The panorama can be localized easily either by searching a location like on the Google Maps website or by entering the latitude/longitude.

Radar: the panorama’s orientation is displayed as a radar in Panotour Pro.
Just hold down the Ctrl key while a spot is selected on the map and an arrow showing the orientation will appear.

Each hotspot displayed through the Panotour Maps plugin can be customized with its proper icon or image.

A full customization of the plugin is available through XML editing. A documentation of the plugin features and their XML syntax will be available soon.

Direct export of the tour through FTP

Build and export your tour from Panotour Pro directly to your FTP server.

Directional sounds without clicking on a spot

It is now possible to set a sound as « display object » on a spot.
It will add a directional sound on a panorama that will be played as soon as the panorama is loaded.

Autorotation settings on each panorama

In Panotour Pro, the autorotation can be set differently for each panorama. These settings are:
- the rotation’s direction
- the rotation’s speed
- the delay before the rotation starts.

Sounds available on iPad® / iPhone®

If you add a sound over a whole tour or over a single panorama, it will be played on iPad® / iPhone®.
Only directional sounds are not supported on these platforms.

iPad® 2 / iPhone® 4 gyroscope support

Allow the users to explore your tour by moving their tablet, only by enabling the Gyroscope plugin for iPad2® / iPhone4®

Ability to set the size of a closed map

We added a new way to set the size of the Maps plugin.
The closed map can be sized and placed independantly of the opened map.

Call a JavaScript function through a click on a hotspot

A new field is available in the hotspot properties tab which allows to call JavaScript functions from the HTML page where the tour is embedded.
Fill the JavaScript call in the field and when the user clicks on the spot, the JS script will be called.

Import of orthoptic panoramas

A new entry is available in the « File/Import » submenu that allows the import of orthoptic images (360° mirror images) in the project.

    Dans la nouvelle version, sera-t-il possible de choisir la couleur du radar KRpano?
    En tout cas, ce qui nous est présenté ici est alléchant.

      Oui, vous pouvez choisir la couleur du radar et de son contour. Vous pouvez également modifier son niveau de transparence.
      Bonne journée !
