Add Thumbnail

Thumbnail is the component that lists the small image of scene, map or movie on Main Window. When running virtual tour, you can switch to different scene, map or movie by clicking different items in thumbnail. In Tourweaver 7, you can not only list several or all the scenes by thumbnail, but also list several or all the images of map, movie or detail image. What's more, you can also choose to use your own images instead of the ones generated automatically.

Introduction to List Values

List Values is actually the source of thumbnail that means which type of items will be displayed in thumbnail. In Tourweaver 7, thumbnail can list small images of scene, map and movie. So when adding a thumbnail component, you should first decide its List Values, which source to choose; and then decide detailed items belonging to this source.

Item Description
Scene The scene Cell will change with the change of map. When 'Item Varies with different Map' is selected, these cells listed in thumbnail will vary with the different maps shown in Map viewer. For example, Scene1,2,3 are located in Map A (to relate a scene to a map, you can choose the relative map under the properties panel of that scene, or add a radar on the map referring to that scene) while Scene 4,5,6 are located in Map B. When map A is running, you can see Cell 1,2,3 are listed in Thumbnail; when map B is run, cell 4,5,6 are shown.
