Just had a look at the FlashPanorama software. Is it a stand alone product or do you need adobe flash to create the tours. Seems cheap for what you get?


It is fine if you are a coder and understand manual scripting. Tourweaver has a user friendly GUI and is why it is so popular. As with most things Panorama related I have a license to this software also and choose not to use it as support is hopeless and better options exist.

Reading and understanding how TW4 works will allow you to start fullscreen. Jenny posted examples of this quite awhile back. There is a difference between the tour with skin playing fullscreen and the normal expand to fullscreen option.

It comes down to entering % percentages for size and not pixel dimensions.

The trick is to make your stage background the same size as the viewer window and set both to 100% width and 100% height. All components of the "skin" will have to be overlaid on top of the viewer.

Too easy.......

Hello Jerry,

There is nothing new about it. Jenny showed examples when TW4.0 was released but people got caught up in the new loading/delivery options that they found confusing.

All that was needed was someone to explain how it works and I hope I have done that for people.

Kerry obviously was paying attention when it was first mooted.

Regards, Smooth

Works great Smooth, as always. The only thing I could not control was the buttons that I use in a pop-up window. They always went to the right hand side where as the non pop-ups stayed in their assigned position. I guess I would have to make all of my controls the same IE: either pop-up or non pop-up. If that makes sense. That said, the non pop-up controls did not center in the screen. I'll play with it some more to see how it goes.

I need would need to see an example to fully understand what you are saying.
