APT v1.0 Hotspots editor window
The panorama currently selected in the Central window is automatically displayed in the Hotspot Editor window.
The gray out areas of a panorama indicate areas where it is impossible to create a hotspot. These areas only appear if the panorama covers a FOV larger than 180 degrees. For punctual objects (point hotspot or lens flare) these areas are not relevant thus they are not displayed.
According to the current mode, editable objects are displayed in yellow while objects that cannot be edited are displayed in white.
The shape of the polygonal hotspots automatically adjusts to the panorama’s projection curvature. It will then be very easy to draw the outlines of objects distorted by a spherical projection.
Note: Do not get mixed up between the Move mode allowing you to move the editing area and the use of the keyboard arrow keys allowing you to move around inside the editing area itself.
When an object can be edited it is possible to:
- adjust the location of a point using the drag rand drop technique (in order to be able to edit a polygon its entire surface must be located within the editing area).
- delete it using the contextual menu (right-click)
It is possible to zoom in and out the window using the mouse scroll wheel and to move around inside the editing area using the keyboard arrow keys. These features are also available when drawing a hotspot.
