Thanks Dave and all Easypano friends.
It is true that we have made some changes to the scene viewer of Tourweaver 4.00 out of the consideration of the whole quality of the tour. In the tour created by Tourweaver 3.00, the qualuity of scene image will be at medium level when your are viewing tour in the normal mode, low quality in full screen mode, but in the tour published by Tourweaver 4.00, the image quality will be at low level if the width of main window is longer than 640(updated). This is because the smoothness of the scene viewer in dragging with mouse will be terrible if we adopt the same settings as those of Tourweaver 3.00. Our programmers are trying to figure out a compromising way for better visual effect, and I think we will release another update soon. Hope you understand.
As to the remove of Java Applet from Tourweaver, we can say it is not what we want either, but we have to do so. We have three reasons in doing so:
1. As we all know, MS Java doesn't support PNG image, only Sun Java does.
2. It is very difficult to have a good quality with transparency with Java.
3. Only Flash supports pop up effect.
We recommend those who like to have Java tour purchase Tourweaver 3.00 first, and then upgrade to Tourweaver 4.00 if they want to have better fanciful flash tour. Thank you.
