These are all good ideas and suggestions, but one item that we would really like to see supported is video clips that could be played in the viewer window.  We do a lot of not-for-profit church camps and historical landmarks.  The immersive 360 is great, but we'd like to show some of the activities that take place with short video clips.  Just our 2 cents worth.
Cheers

I agree with Hawkaye007. As an alternative to panowalker I envision a transition effect or video file between scenes where a non-interactive video is played that is basically a walk from 360 scene to 360 scene. I know and understand that a 10 second video clip's file size may be larger than a typical pano image but I think the idea has merit if the video is compressed and frame rate is done properly. This should be especially easy to do with flash.

I have had good success with the exporting video. Play well on my 52" widescreen. Here is what I do
Select "Export Video"
Select "MPEG Format" and change to MPEG2. You will notice that the Width and Height boxes unlock. Type in 720 and 480. Deselect "Use original document size"
change Frame Rate to 29.97
and then go. Take the file and put it into your favorite NLE and change to widescreen, add sound, sharpen if necessary, save out as AVI (I prefer Huffy) and then put into the DVD encoder of your choice. Hope this helps.

AVI output is the way to go! Absolutly the only option for me, Thats why I have never advertised this (Putting the movie on a DVD) option. Honestly what do you think the end user is going to do with the dvd? There sure not going to play it on their 14 inch laptop screen - there gonna pop that baby in thier DVD player hooked up to their new 60 inch WIDESCREEN (14:9) 1080 p(or)i TV

One more suggestion - when fullscreen map mode is opened and any hotspot is clicked only radar function changes and we are still at the map mode.
In my opinion in that moment the mode should change automatically to normal view (or full screen viewer mode - depending on earlier mode)

You can position the pop up window by adjusting the code in the link for the pop up.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms536651.aspx

It uses the window.open method which supports a top, left property.

Here is what the generated code produces

<a title="#" onClick="javascript:window.open('http://www.3dimagetour.com/3PalmsPMG/Beach%20Cottages/5th/View%20Tour_Beach%20Cottages.html','_blank','status=yes,top=0,left=0,width=581,height=626');">View Tour</a>

Change the top=0 to top=yournumber and the same with left.

I have noticed in previous versions and 3.0 version of Tour Weaver that when you click on a thumb image to view a scene there is a long delay. These delays go away after a few minutes in 3.0 but persisted in previous versions. There needs to be some acknowledgement that a thumb image has been clicked and to wait a moment for the scene to load. To the end user it appears the thumb buttons don't work. 

Using the hand pointer for the curser over the thumbnail image instead of using the standard mouse curser would be more professional.
