APT v1.0 Properties

The options of the properties tabs impact all selected elements of the central window. Some options are directly modifiable via the graphical tools presented just above.

If no element is selected, the options are inactive. When several elements are selected and if their properties differ, the options are displayed in grey but are still editable.



  • Display :
    • First Displayed Panorama: select the panorama to be displayed first in the virtual tour.
    • Insert navigation menu : adds a bar of navigation buttons to the virtual tour.
    • Add fullscreen button : adds a fullscreen button to the navigation bar that enables the user to toggle between initial view and fullscreen view. To enable this functionality you also need to choose a fullscreen HTML template.
    • Use auto-rotation : when selected this enables auto-rotation of the panorama. This can be overidden by the user but when enabled the pano view will return to the original horizon after a short period without user interaction.
    • Insert panoramas list : adds a list box pointing directly to each view of the tour. Only avaible to users with a krpano license.
    • Logo:
      • File: enter, or browse to, the name of logo file to insert - PNG, JPEG, GIF, SWF formats are supported.
      • Position: choose where you wish to position the logo.
      • Link: enter the URL of a web page to be opened in a new Tab/Window if the logo is clicked.
  • Export
    • Embed all data: when selected, all images are embedded in the exported flash SWF file, otherwise they are placed in a sub directory and loaded dynamically.

Attention : if all data is embedded, the .SWF file generated may be very large and take a long time to download before the panorama is displayed when published to the Internet. If the data is not embedded, don't forget to upload the data subfolder.

    • Embed XML files: makes accessible the XML files generated to create the virtual tour to modify them manually. Only available to users with krpano license.
    • HTML Template: pointed html file will be used to generate a web page including the generated virtual tour. Template files are in the sub directory « Templates/html/ » presents in the installation directory. $(SWF) keyword presents in the template will be replaced by the generated flash file.


  • Name: name used in the list box, if displayed.
  • Field of view: field of view covered by the panorama. If the panorama was generated with Autopano Giga in a format that includes Exif data (TIFF or JPEG), then the correct data will be entered automatically. Post-procesinmg of stitched panos will typically remove the required EXIF data.
    • Horizontal: horizontal angle in degrees.
    • Vertical: vertical angle in degrees.
    • Vertical offset: vertical position of panorama horizon in degrees.
  • Pictures parameters: define the quality of the output image.
    • Preview Size: picture size of the preview displayed while loading the panorama.
    • JPEG Quality: JPEG compression quality (from 0 to 12).
    • Size depending on the type of selected panorama, this property may represent two different concepts:
      • Cube Face Size : size of used picture in the construction of 3D cubical panorama when full 360 panorama is selected.
      • Partial Panorama Width : width of used picture in the construction of 3D spherical panorama when partial panorama is selected (height is automatically computed by respecting picture aspect ratio).
      • Compute Optimal Size : compute the best fitting size according to input panorama size. Maximum allowed size is however limited :
        • Cube Face Size : 1024 without krpano license, 5000 with.
        • Partial Panorama Width : 3072 without krpano license, width allowing 200 000 000 pixels with.
      • Multi resolution : with a krpano license, when a picture (cube face or partial panorama) exceed 1024 on one of there dimensions, a multi resolution pyramid is automatically computed to allow progressive downloading.
    • Nadir Patch: picture to be inserted on nadir cube face, transparency will be respected in formats that support transparency.
    • Scale: size of the nadir patch, proportionally to bottom cube face size.
  • Camera Parameters: most easily set using the cointext menu in the 3D View/Editor.
    • Yaw: horizontal position of the initial view in degrees.
    • Pitch: vertical position of the initial view in degrees.
    • Fov: field of view of the initial view in degrees
    • Min: minimal field of view when navigating the panorama - that is max. level of zoom-in.
    • Max: maximal field of view when navigating the panorama - that is max. level of zoom-out.


  • Link:
    • Panorama: the selected panorama will be loaded in the same Tab/Window when the hotspot is clicked.
      • Transition
        • Zoom in hotspot : camera zooms in hotspot center before to load the new panorama.
        • Yaw, Picth, Fov : entering view in the new panorama before to displace the camera to the default view.
    • URL: the URL will be loaded in a new Tab/Window when the hotspot is clicked.
    • HTML: the URL of an HTML-text file which will be displayed is a window superimposed on the panorama when the hotspot is clicked. The HTML-text file must written in HTML format with very minimalist code as described here :


    • Object: the graphical object (PNG, JPG, GIF, SWF) which will be displayed when the hotspot is clicked.
      • Position : object or simplified HTML position
      • width, height : displaying size in pixel of the object or the simplified HTML. If nothing is setted, default size will be the object size de l'objet or the half of the visit size for simplified HTML.
  • Display:
    • Colour: the colour used to display the polygonal hotspot, you can also adjust the transparency.
    • Object: the graphical object (PNG, JPG, GIF, SWF) which will be displayed at point hotspot position.
    • Tooltip: the text which will be displayed when mouse hovers over the hotspot.
