I asked easypano if we will be getting the next version of TW for free due to the endless problems we are having with current version. You can guess their answer!
Anyway heres a few things I would like in TW;
? SET BOUNDARIES IN MAPS
Be able to define your own boundaries by the use of some sort of vector polygon eg the red line shown on the screen shot below. or something similar to the way the images in the main viewer are framed using gifs. This will allow the 'scanning radar' effect to be kept within the boundaries of the map. But obviously the boundary should be able to be made TRANSPARENT!.
? MORE CONTROL OVER LIST BOXES ETC..
ie being able to define where the sliding box goes, being able to set colours as transparent on both the boxes themselves and the image. also I would like to be able to define where the sliding box goes ie which side, top or bottom etc or have 'columns' as an option in the thumbnail box as well as 'rows'
? ANIMATED GIFS:
animated gifs seem to work ok with the TW viewer as hotspots but would like to be able to use animated gifs in maps and as scene links etc etc
? TRANSPARENT VIEWER:
If possible I would like to be able to define the viewer as transparent when the tour loads ie without colour.
? Generally be able to define fills/borders as transparent.
? The java viewer seems to be very unstable when more than one internet explorer window is opened and large images are used, it is very 'jerky' ie it images stutter when rotating and this looks VERY UNPROFESSIONAL to people viewing the tours PTviewer & iPIX dont seem to have this problem!. Also the sound 'breaks up' and goes very poor quality.
