How to Set Transition Effect
In Tourweaver 7 , you can not only set transition effect for each scene, but also for each map. During a transition between two scenes or two maps, this transition effect you've set will run automatically, which make the transition very fluently.
Set Transition Effect for Scene
There are three ways to transfer between different scenes.
- To make scene transition by Thumbnail, ListBox or ComboBox. There are None, Fade in and Fade Out and Blade as transition effects in this way. You can set any of them via Properties Panel.
- To make scene transition by the action Link to Scene on Text, Image or Button components. The transition effect is the same with the first way.
- To make scene transition by Link to Scene action on hotspot. Besides the transition effects described above, you can also set Walk Through as transition effect (to set after adding Link to Scene).
After you add link to scene to hotspot, and choose Walkthrough as the transition effect, you can see the above window. As said in the previous chapter Add Hotspot, the right window is the starting position of the current scene where the hotspot is on. This position can't be changed any more. The central window is the end position of the current scene where the target window is to be switched. The left window is the starting position of the target scene switched from the current scene. The left and central window can be adjusted by setting Pan, Tilt and FOV values.
Set Transition Effect for Map
There are two ways to transfer between different maps.
- To make map transition by Thumbnail, List Box or Combo Box. There are None, Fade in and Fade Out, Blinds and Zoom In as transition effects in this way. You can choose any of them via Properties Panel.
- To make scene transition by the action Link to Map on Text, Image, Button or hotspot component. The transition effect is the same with the first way. After add action Link to Map, you can see the window below:
You can make settings for transition effect here. For example, if you choose Zoom In as the transition effect for Map A, then it will zoom in from where the hotspots is until it covers the previous map completely.
