Tourweaver 7 Feature RequestsFEATURE REQUESTS:
Can we please have a way of setting the FOV initial zoom level of each pano in the tour separately for the iPhone version and then also the iPad version. I have noticed that the FOV zoom levels are different in the scene player in the FlashVR version of a tour to the iPhone version and then the iPad version again. This is due to the different screen dimensions and player sizes for each version of the tour. I would like to have control over the FOV so as to minimise warping and distortion on the edges of the pano in the HTML5 versions.
Can we please have an easy way of customising the toolbar in HTML5 version. Perhaps have another tab next to Pop Up Windows along the top where we can set button images and apply actions to the buttons.
Can we also please have an easy way to customise the full screen tool bar for the FlashVR version. I should be able to just add buttons like I do in the normal scene viewer and attach actions to them like a normal button. Building the full screen toolbar in Flash is way too hard and way too time consuming!
The zoom in and zoom out buttons on the large tool bar in HTML5 version for the iPad should zoom in and zoom out in small increments like the zoom in and zoom out action does in the FlashVR version of the tour. Currently when you hit the zoom in button with your finger it keeps zooming in on the panoramic image.
The scene viewer is currently the only element which you can't add a border colour to. Can you please add the ability to put a 1 pixel border around the outside of the scene viewer and give us the ability to choose the colour. I know you can choose an image to place around the border but I just want to add a 1 pixel border similar to every other element like thumbnail box, drop down menu etc.
THINGS TO FIX:
The API doesn't work at all. Tried all the API functions but it doesn't do anything to a pano in the scene viewer.
The action Play / Pause Movie under Scene & Movie actions needs to be changed slightly. If you have more than one pano in a tour, currently when you click a button with the Play / Pause Movie action attached to it, the movie will pause. Then when you click play again the tour jumps you back to the very beginning of the movie i.e. back to the start of the first pano in the tour. This shouldnt happen! When you click the pause button the tour should pause. Then when you click play again the tour should start playing again from the exact point you paused the tour. Like when you are watching a DVD movie and you click pause to go and get a snack or something, then come back and hit play...the movie doesnt start from the beginning again. Why should the virtual tour do this!
When exporting a skin, Tourweaver should export all the pop up windows and actions I have applied to buttons, and save the loading screen graphic I have set for that skin. Currently TW doesnt do this and every time I use a skin multiple times for different tours, I have to go through and set all these elements up again. When TW exports a skin, instead of saving most of the elements into one folder, TW should save the skin files in the exact same way as when I save a tour as .TW file. So I should have all the same folders such as dimage, map, output, scene, sound, video, window. When I save a skin as a kind of template file, I should just have to drop the panoramic images into the tour and hit publish because all the actions and maps and pop up windows etc I have built should be included in the skin files. Please fix this Easypano!
