I actually was able to get it to do it once, but as soon as I changed one tilt value of one of the key frames, it went back to doing one full revolution around as well as going from up to down in the view.

In the Tourweaver Feature Tour (on Easypano home page) under Multimedia Demonstration>Preset the timing and walkthrough - at the end it says Click to see one of the sample paths. At the end of the sample it zooms to a metal frame sphear - and then tilts up and back down. This is what I am looking for. So they say it can do what I am looking for.

I will try and mock up what I want in After Effects and post later tonight, so you have a better idea of what I am looking for as well.

Thanks for all the input.

Try this

Import under manage your spherical pano as a "still image" - NOT a 360. Then insert frames starting at top of view and finishing at bottom, then insert the spherical pano as normal, for a 360 rotation - it works (you will have to give the 360 pano a new name), just tried it. Bit rough and ready - but with practice would get better.

Ok - I got it to work, but there is a trick, you have to fool the software.

The software will not let you turn off Direction, you have to turn Clockwise or Anti-Clockwise in any move that you make.

So I made it so that it pans from position 92 to position 93 while tilting form 67 to 11. It only moves 1 degree clockwise, which is not noticable. (This is why it worked for me by accident the one time, I was off in the pan position by 1 point, and corrected it so that is would go straight down, and then it did a full rotation the next time I played the movie.)

Keyframe 1:

Pan 92
Tilt 67
FOV 90
Direction Clockwise

Keyframe 2:

Pan 93
Tilt 11
FOV 90

Keyframe 3:
Pan 93
Tilt 11
FOV 90

Thanks all for the input! Hopefully we can get Easypano to add a Option not to rotate to the Direction element.

Ok, so you didn't want anything special just standard path scripting?

This has been do-able right from the start. We did this using PTViewer "goto" parameter. I was under the impression you wanted vertical autoplay panning.

Oh well, problem solved.
