Is this functionality achievable?

Hi

This query goes out to the developers of Easy Pano who I 'hope' are out there.  I got the following feedback from the director of a multimedia research lab I used to work with and I think his point is a very good one.  Can it be achieved?...

---

Minor criticism = I don't like that fact that when I hit one of the '<' or '>' or '^' or '+' or '-' buttons it seems to 'run relentlessly'/unstoppably until (by luck) I discover how to stop it by clicking on the image itself.

My instinct is to click a SECOND time on the button to stop the relentless zoom etc. (which means that 'while zooming' I would expect the '+' button to remain in a 'depressed/pushed-down' state, ditto for the others).

Cheers, Steiner

Good point.
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.

Hi steiner,

It is impossible to stop the zooming by clicking a second time on the button with current Tourweaver. However, you may set the max and min value of FOV at "Scene" panel. In this way, you can restrict the zoom level of each scene.

We will consider this feature in the coming version of Tourweaver. By the way, how do you think of the zooming way in Quicktime VR?


Best regards,
Carol

Hi Carol

Thanks for the feedback.  I look forward to the new version.  Re. Quicktime, I think that's a perfectly acceptable model of navigation.

Thanks again
