Adding Graphics and Text to each scene.

Not a newby here, been with Tourweaver since 3.0, and still don't know IF what I described below can be done, or how to do it. I have a project now that I HAVE to figure it out. PLEASE HELP!

I need to know how to add a graphic to a SCENE that acts like the stationary graphics added to a TOUR. This way I can label the SCENE. For example, 1 tour consists of 10 scenes, I know how to add a graphic to the tour, (same graphic stays stationary throughout the tour) but I need to add a different description/title graphic to each SCENE that acts the same way.

I also need to know how to do a click-able text box or possible graphic that will show more in depth information about that particular scene.

Sorry last sentence should read -- I also need to know how to do a hide-able text box or possible graphic that will show more in depth information about that particular scene.

Hi Steve,

I did this with a tour many years ago. The only way I could get the image to appear with a particular scene was via a hotspot not a thumbnail or radar command. When you add a hotspot give it 2 actions, 1. link to scene, 2. open popup window with your image in it. Use the text area for your description and link it to that scene.

One thing you must do is to give the hotspot in the next scene a command to close that popup window when leaving that scene and open another popup window for the next scene. Otherwise you will have images stacking on one another. The text area will look after itself after you have given the commands in the list values.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Gordo

Pop-Up Windows were not available with TW3.0 if that is what you are still using.

If so, you will need to upgrade to do what you are asking.

I had a similar request from a client recently. They wanted the name of the scene to appear in big letters at the top of the window and change with each scene.

This would be so easy to do if Easypano would allow us to apply actions to individual thumbnail images in the thumbnail box. I have requested this feature but ask for it again here. If we could apply actions to the thumbnail box element it would open up so many awesome possibilities in our tours. What say you EP?

Select the "Text Area" Option and place on your stage.


From the Text Area properties click on the List Values: "Spanner Tool Icon" this will open a new property "Content" window.


Within the "Content Window" select "Scene" from the dropdown list. Select your Scene you want the Text or Image assigned to. Type your content into the right window pane OR use the Browse for folder/document icon to find the Text content or image file you want associated to the selected scene.


Repeat this final step to assign text or image to the next Scene (like pano 2 etc).

All very simple stuff.

You can even add the text area to a "pop-up window and trigger the window with a button.
