fps and quality issues should be solvedHi there,
Some good news for us i found today in internet. Adobe is working on its player to take advantage of GPU acceleration.
Here is a link to Adobe Molehill project:
And here some reports of performance:
What does it mean for us, mortals? Quality and performance (smooth experiences). Now quality and performance are bound togeather. Developers must choose a compromise for quality OR performance. The more detail sphere is created by panorama viewer - more quality you get. Otoh, it affects rendering time.
Now that we will have GPU acceleration - it would be not an issue at all as today graphic accellerators can handle hudred times more sophisticated scenes. You even might use 3D models within your tours.
Hope EP will take advantage of upcomming flash player features :) Also i hope that flash player also will take advantage of smartphone GPU acceleration and i would be able to forget html5 which is not ready yet to be used (maybe except stripped version for iphones).
