3rd Party Photo Gallery Insertion?

I want to add this photo gallery to my tours:
http://flash-gallery.com/zen-flash-gallery

Is it possible?

I haven't purchased it yet but here is s a FREE version:
http://flash-gallery.com/zen-flash-gallery/free-download/dl.html

I've tried choosing the gallery's .swf file as a movie to be inserted but when previewing the tour it wont show up.

Thank you for your attention.

Hi Matt, Welcome to the forum. I am pretty sure that it is not possible as it is not a standalone swf file, it needs to read from the source of images.

One other thought though is that you can replicate the flash gallery using the thumbnail viewer in TW and display it in a pop up which will give you the background space for another image similar to the one you want.

It depends on how 3rd party plugin is implemented. From my experience - if TW and plugin use the same components (managers) - they clash and 3rd party plugin doesn't work.
If 3rd part plugin is implemented differently, then everything works just fine.
Of course - preview won't work as it will not contain you gallery description or (as nerjaace says) .xml file with the information. When using 3rd party plugin you can preview it only after publishing and putting images directory and .xml into TW tour publishing directory.

Best wishes,

You can see a 3rd Party example of a single .swf in this sample

Click the (left) slideshow icon/button.

Hmm, I think that one was Incredishow 2 from www.increditools.com

Increditools has multiple programs that will build a slideshow including Incredishow, Flash Demo Builder, Flash Video Studio among others.

Hi

Where xml file must be placed to work with swf gallery? I put xml file and images into the same directory with swf gallery after publish but it doesn't work (in Resouces where are swf files). SWF is wornkig in tour but there are no images, nothing.
I think tour don't read this xml which I placed with other swf files after publish. But Why???

It depends on the software that produces the slideshow. Some are compatible and some aren't. The .swf must "always" be in the published resource folder. The remaining objects "images, .xml files etc" can either go in the resource folder or the tour root directory (where the tour html files are). If neither work, then it is not compatible.
