Linking Panoramas

If you have more than one panorama, you can link to them via hotspots. This is generally called a panorama tour.

★ If you have a large amount of panoramas to connect, it might be worth upgrading to Pano2VR pro, where you can create a tour in a faster, more efficient way. These steps describe linking to a tour using the standard version of Pano2VR.

Linking to a panorama

To link to another panorama, you will need separate projects. For example,
pano1.p2vr and pano2.p2vr.

  1. Create a new project or open an existing project (pano2.p2vr) and output the panorama.

  2. Open or create a separate project which will be the starting panorama (pano1.p2vr).

  3. Select the Hotspot Mode from the Viewer and add a point hotspot.

  4. For Type, choose, URL.

  5. (Optional) Give the panorama a Title. For example, Go to the next panorama.
    This will appear as a tooltip when the mouse hovers over the hotspot.

  6. For Link Target URL, enter the file name of the next panorama (the
    panorama you just created: pano2_out.swf or pano2_out.xml.

    ★ If outputting to both Flash and HTML5, use only the SWF output.

    ★ The SWF and/or XML and their images must be located in the same folder as the starting panorama.

  7. Create the panorama and test the result. You should be able to click on the hotspot and it will open the next panorama.

To add a return link back to the starting panorama:

  1. Open the project of the second panorama (pano2.p2vr).

  2. Select the Hotspot Mode from the Viewer and add a point hotspot.

  3. (Optional) Give the panorama a Title.

  4. For Type, choose, URL.

  5. For Link Target URL, enter the file name of the next panorama (the starting panorama: pano1_out.swf or pano1_out.xml.

  6. Create the panorama and test the result. You should be able to click on the hotspot and it will open the next (starting) panorama.
