Tourweaver 5 - Full Screen Components

Hi,

I'm testing TW5.  I cannot figure out how to add components to the full screen.  I've searched the help files, but see no help there. How do I add thumbnails, text boxes, etc... to the tour that will show up in full screen?

Thanks,

Rob

When you create a virtual tour in full screen you must also create pop up windows for almost all the components of your virtual tour and anchor them.

I still don't see a full screen virtual tour on your link

You can see an example here:

Yes, I think I've figured it out and will try again.  Thanks.

What size did you make the scene viewer in your example?  Looks good.

I wish I knew how to make my own buttons, scene frame, etc...  Is

there an easy (cheap) program out there that would be of help?

Thanks,

Rob

Here's my working example of a tour with components in Full Screen.

I still have some fine tuning to do, but this is usable.

Hi Rob.

Its easy to make your own buttons and skins with a program like Photoshop (which I use daily), but I also use open source software for some tasks which is often free. A programme called GimpShop functions similar to Photoshop and is free. I haven't used it myself, but you may find it worth having a look at. This link will take you to a central source for lots of open source commercial alternitives, so you may find other applications worthy of consideration here.

Hope that helps you a bit.

Willie

Thanks for the info Willie.  I guess I need to learn more about photoshop with regards to creating skins, buttons, etc..  Ugh...more learning

Hey Smooth,

 I just found that...:-)

But, this has to be a joke right?  All it does is take my components into full screen, but keeps the scene viewer the same size... So, it looks like I have to make my scene viewer basically full screen from the beginning...

In other words, you have to create everything in full screen from the begining?

Thanks.

No, I'm still not doing something right.  I saw Virtulsv's tour and it works properly in full screen, so I'll keep trying to figure it out.

Thanks,

Rob

So, according to the help docs., you have to have software to create your own toolbar for the full screen.

  Note: In Tourweaver 5.00, the full screen toolbar can be customized. You can make your own toolbar skin in .fla format and copy it to the resource folder in the Tourweaver installation directory.

Otherwise you can't easily put thumbnails, text boxes, etc... into full screen until you can create your own toolbar that will call up these items.  Correct?

Not very usable for the average "Joe" that doesn't do a lot of flash creating....
